Its a BUG’S life!

I am not sure if its an American thing or if its a Charlotte thing but the BUGS here in and around my house, Parks and shopping centers are driving me up the wall.

Don’t get me wrong, South Africa has bugs and lots of them but they are much more avoidable and “manageable”. We used to have flies, crickets and ants and for those three bugs, there are sprays, candles or traps but here in Charlotte, North Carolina you have so many critters. Maybe it is also the unfamiliarity that make them so much more daunting! But I cannot keep up.

I know in order to bring balance to the force, we need bugs, but I really can’t handle a creepy crawlies in each and every corner of the house OR a spider spinning a web across the entry of the front door OR a wasp like flying bug chasing me around in my laundry room OR slugs sliming up my front porch OR mosquitos sucking the life out of my husband OR those green worms handing from the tree branches…the list goes on and on.

I feel bad walking around with my can of BUG SPRAY spray but I just can’t stand it so I researched the web like all homemakers do and found this really nice list from on natural repellents and seeing as though it is gardening season, this list might just come in handy.
