Good day, Friends.
Today's blog is short. Grammy is struggling with another critter in the condo. No, not bats in the belfry though we anticipate there could be some in Grammy's belfry.
No. Recently we were treated for ants in the pant-ry but now we have moths and they are giving Grammy ants in her pants. *giggles*
Yes, you heard.... Moths.
Clothing moths. Grammy is keeping them under control with frequent emptying of closets, vacuuming of same and everywhere else they gather, sweeping the bases of baseboards and the feet of furniture where they lay their eggs etc. Unfortunately, with all her attempts she hasn't rid us of them and one or two appear every few days.
Fortunately, from the outset Grammy has placed all knitting supplies into plastic bins with highly scented moth deterrent fabric sheets to keep them safe from the critters. As an extra precaution, before sending something on to a client it gets a two week hiatus in a sealed bag in the freezer - long enough to kill off the critters.
Now, for us, these creatures are great entertainment. They crawl out from under those baseboards or from nooks and crannies, wings flapping as they walk and gain strength. Then they flit and fly giving us something to chase. Wohoo! We love it.
Poor Grammy, though. She's seven years older and twice as wobbly as she was the last time she had to deal with them. Not to worry though. We'll 'help' her. And if all else fails - she can call in the handy-dandy Moth Terminator.
Grammy here! Yes, they 'help', chasing and playing with the critters but not killing them. That part is left to me.
Just so you know... It was moths that started this whole blog thing off. Yes, seven years ago this coming October we had the Moth Terminator visit and do his stuff. Read all about it here.... Moth Day
