Quoting rojastarr:

Quoting jenna30:

With fly swatter?;-)





Quoting rojastarr:

Yes...between Orkin and me...they are terminated...sorry arachnid lovers out there




Quoting jenna30:

Do u kill spiders?








Quoting rojastarr:

I do have the old fashioned kind but they are not so good with the fruit flies and I read reviews that these work with them so I thought it would be worth it to give it a try.





Quoting jenna30:

Bv you have a good old fashioned one too? Its more satisfying to swat them dead!;-)











Quoting rojastarr:

I had to buy one of the electric ones after reading this...I hate fllies and if can facilitate their destruction then I am all for it lol.

That is a big no ... I am not afraid of them ... but my whimpy children are. So to save them all I have to smoosh them.

where we live we have no need.  

our biggest pest are ants... and a swatter wont help with that.  we have a service for the ants.

Ill go in with ya... but no electric fences.  has to be free range mosqurkey.  We can keep them in one area by spraying skin-so-soft around the perimeter of the yard.

I use hair spray on them to stun the "pest" and then swat the hell outta them.  Kills them every time!!!
