Yesterday I used most of the items in the picture above. I finished emptying out my china cabinet at 9.30pm.
House was all clean ..
floors mopped, and vacuumed, walls washed, furniture moved.
9:00 am this morning the Pest Control people arrived and started lifting the carpet, cutting holes in the floorboards in each room of the house so they could spray poison for termites.
I got home this evening to find dust all over EVERYTHING and a whole house to clean AGAIN tomorrow.
I mean seriously.... why did the house have to be spotless and dust free for them!!??
I really would have prefered not to be in the house for a c ouple of days at least...as soon as I walked in the house tonight I could smell the spray they used.....
I hate the thought of using poisons
On the bright side... they did locate a termite nest under the house. I REALLY hope they have all been eradicated. We will have the house reassessed by the exterminators in six months and then we can start repairing the damage the termites have made to the inside of the house.
