Take a second and think to yourself: what would be the worst type of bug infestation?...... got it yet?
Well we have what I think is the worst: Black widow spiders. We have killed 7 of them in the past 2 days (I did 6 of the 7) and I get the worst case of the heebie jeebies whenever I see them or think about them. I don't like spiders anyway, but I've taken care of one too many patients who have been bit by them and get massive wounds and things. So, the day after I get back from Utah I'm paying $115 to have pest control spray. The bad news is that they have to be directly sprayed in order for them to die so they recommend spraying monthly. Bla.
Christa, you no longer have to be jelous that we are living in a house.

Yuck. Black Widows are yucky to be sure, but a sad fact of (my) life is that wherever I've lived, we've had black widow spiders inside and outside of the house. I've killed about 3 a year since we've lived in Cedar Hills. Spraying once may not be a bad idea, but once a month is overkill IMHO (especially at that price! sheesh!). Get spider traps and put by your doors and in dark corners, keep things clean and neat and don't pile stuff with spaces between. Stomp any spiders you find and soon you'll find you don't have any worse problem than anyone else in the world.

If you live on the moon, you won't have black widows.
