There are bugs and insects in your
home. Yeah, I'm talking to you! It stinks, but there's hardly a
way around this. Bugs are just so small; they tend to squeeze
through any cracks or openings. Imagine what comes in every
time you open the door. It's sort of a free-for-all for the
flying insects. It takes them a half of a second to dart in.
This of course can lead to more bugs if eggs are laid. YUCK.
I'm always annoyed with the ants and spiders. These irksome
little pests are always getting in somehow. Well, you know what
this means. It's time to break out the ant spray and bug
killer. Unfortunately they won't be bargained with.
So my seven year old daughter approached me the other day
with a dismal look on her face. She said, "Dad, my leg is
bugging me." Naturally I sat her down to take a look at it. To
my surprise there was a small puss-filled bump on her inner
thigh. It was surrounded by a patchy redness. My immediate
thought was that she had been bitten by some spider or insect.
She said that it itched and was a bit sore. I then showed it to
my wife and she thought the same thing. We decided to wait
until the next day to check it again. In the meanwhile, my wife
used insect and ant spray around the house. She sprayed in all
the corners. Hey, you can never be too safe about what it
sneaking in and building nests in your home. Anyway, the
following day, I examined the bump again. Now it looked worse
to me. The redness around it was more severe and it appeared
streaky. This makes me think INFECTION. That's a bit scary as a
parent. I then conversed with my wife and we set up a doctor's
appointment for the following morning. Once the doctor had
examined it for about two seconds, she said, "Eww, that's a bug
or spider bite. The infection is spreading down her leg." She
ensured us that it wasn't a huge deal and some simple
Amoxicillin would remedy the infection. She then advised us to
take some spider, bug and ant spray, and use it under all the
beds, in all the corners, and in all the closets. We were way
ahead of her.
Go ahead and pick up some spider or ant spray at any home
store. I purchased mine from Lowe's. This is a good way to keep
those nasty little insects and bugs out of your home and away
from your children. They can sneak in year-round, so be
