Spiders and other creepy crawlies...

How do YOU get rid of them when they dare to venture in your home.

Why the heck am I even asking this? Well I went to unwrap my curtian sheer and there were 4 FOUR daddy longleggs hanging out there. WTF Usually here we are bombarded by moths in May but not this year no....this year it's the Daddy Longlegs. I don't get it. Luckily I have Chef and Little Man to get rid of them for me. Yep thats right I AM A GIRL! So what. They have been ALL OVER my house this month. I do not get it.

If neither of them are avaliable (Monkey tries but doesn't always want to get them) I use my handy dandy CONE vacumn. Yes I suck those suckers up. I can't deal okay so get over it.

So how so YOU deal with the critters?

Found you through AFRo...and you're a fellow SITSta! Very cool!

I usually just go and get my three year old son...he's happy to step on them for me.

I usually warn them that they better be gone either out of my house or far somewhere so that we will never run into each other again.

Yes, I talk to them. lol

It usually works.

Daddy Long Legs I usually leave; don't know why but they don't bother me at all.

Spiders get the Kleenex Krush. If they are bigger than a dime, though, a paperback gets called in to help crush.

I use the Dyson. It's always plugged in anyway! (You've met my kids, you should understand!)

I usually introduce critters to the soles of my shoes. Mr. Baseball (the hub) takes a different approach. He'll trap them in a cup, put them in the toilet, then pee on them.

Case in point - last night we had a giant "waterbug" (i.e. very large roach) crawling on our ceiling. He traps it, pees on it, but the thing starts to crawl over the lip of the toilet and he has to push it back in the bowl with his hand. EEEWWWWWW! I think my approach is much better.

Dawn, mixed with water, in a spray bottle.

The mixture kills them. Flies too.

BE sure you add the dawn after water or it will just suds up
