Bug suprise

I went to change the litter today, and there was a small beetle looking bug.... very creepy!! I was expecting smell but not bugs!

*jibblies*

there is currently still a bottle on it. i cant do the whole cleaning the guts thing... and my cats arent cats in that regard. my mom found a centipede today too.... i hate bugs! The only bad part of summer!

I hear you! We have a real ant problem in May-June every year. This year they discovered they like S*WHEAT Scoop, I guess because it has wheat in it, and were carrying it off to form hills in the corner of the powder room.

I couldn't agree with you more! I especially hate the summer spiders! I found a big one the other day. It was about the size of a daddy long leg, except it's body area was about the size of the tip of my pinky finger! It was black with bright red dots all over it. Ok, that grossed me out.......and thank goodness it was at least outside!

I think if that wasnt outside i would be calling an exterminator!! lol. Sounds too creepy.

I think the worst are centipedes though... nearly tied with spiders. Centipedes are so easy to lose track of... and i hate not knowing where they are... just creeps me right out.

that happened the other night.. the cats were actually playful, and were playing with something... which was a centipede... but it escaped into vent-land before i could get to it... quite creepy. its also odd that i seem to never see them outside.... so how do they get in??

Get some Ortho Home Defense and spray it around the inside and outside of your house and you won't have bugs! I do this about once a month in the summer and the occasional bug I do find is dead.

I just saw the big ready to use jug for around $10 at Home Depot Monday. Here is what it looks like: http://www.idealtruevalue.com/servlet/the-57051/Detail
