Look at my pretty new Who-Ha holder. My mom gave it to me last weekend in that yucky old - brown - faded - wood state. A few coats of bright red later and I am in color heaven. Fun, huh? Red seems to becoming one of my favorite colors lately. Oh and remember those evil bugs I was talking about the other day? (I'm still not going to yuck up my blog with a picture of one..) Well I scoured the Internet and called several different exterminators to see if anything could be done about them. Everyone told me the same thing. Nothing can be done about them. I was literally to the point of pulling my hair out. They were Everywhere. Our deck was crawling with them.
Well-Dustin was grilling the other night, side stepping the little beasts, and out of frustration (actually he said he wanted to light the thing on fire) he sprayed one down with the only thing he had in his hand. Pam. Yes, you know-the cooking spray? The little thing keeled over and died in about 1.5 seconds. I ran to the store and bought 3 cans and covered the deck in Pam. It works like a charm. And every day there are less bugs to spray away. This may not seem like a big huge miracle to some of you-but if you have ever had a box elder problem, this is big news! I just hope one day someone will be scouring the web for miracle box elder removal advice and stumbles on my blog!
Anyone want to come over and sew? We can take turns stashing stuff on the pretty red holder.
