We have used an exterminator on a regular basis since moving to this house, surrounded by towering pine trees, which bring with them great big Wood Roaches.
It's about time for a visit, but then I realized ...
The exterminator sprays outside the house, too.
He sprays in the garden where Ariadne and Cassandra live.
No, no, that won't do! They are still spinning gorgeous webs everyday, thrilling us with their brilliance.
So, we're holding off. And I'm looking for better ways to not have roaches roaming the house. Will take suggestions, IF you've tried them yourself. Don't just google a recipe for roach cookies.
