Cupboards Full of Nothing

After the pest control man came and sprayed my house for cockroaches, he said there are a lot of eggs around.  I need to get rid of all the eggs, because each one contains another 30 cockroaches.  Getting any housework done with a 4-year-old and 3-month-old who both need little sleep and a lot of attention from mummy is a task and a half to start with, let alone trying to clean out cupboards as well!

But, I'm trying my hardest to get it done before he comes back for a re-inspection tomorrow.

I'd not actually noticed the eggs before.  I've seen the cockroaches, but not the eggs.  And, after cleaning out the cupboards, I know why.  The cockroaches are living in, and laying eggs in, the cupboards I don't access regularly. Why don't I access those cupboards?  Mostly because the stuff in them is stuff that I don't use.

I just found a platter full of dead cockroach bits that I didn't remember I had, don't remember where I got it from, and don't remember having used.  I'm not disgusted easily, but I am this week.

Here's to a less cluttered and more clean house!

  1. The same thing happened in my apartment with pantry moths and their larva! Unfortunately, I do get disgusted easily when it's in my living space. But I cleaned it all out and it even led me to find plates and bowls buried deep in the cabinets that we don't use. Great post!


Say something!

(But if you have nothing nice to say, you're best saying nothing at all.)
