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!
