Question For Today- "Creepy Crawlers"
November 21, 2017 5:12pm CST
Have you ever had mice or other varmints in your house? Most of us probably have at one time or other. Maybe you've had problems with skunks or squirrels. Or perhaps insects really freak you out! Crickets and spiders hiding in your home are no fun and are annoying pests. So that leads me to the question for today. What do you think is the worst critter to have in your house? I'm sure there are interesting experiences to share. Photo- mnn.com

On more than 1 occasion I've had Fire Ants (the ones that bite and leave a pus pocket) not only in my cabinets but in my bed @dgobucks226 . Grab the vacuum cleaner and suck the buggers up and then take ant poison and spray it all along the interior walls at the floor and ceiling areas. Plus I have to throw away all the food that was in the cabinets because they can gain entry even into twist-top jars of something.
They are vicious insects. I was attacked by those ants outside my Dad's condo in Florida. They were on his walkway and I was in flip flops and before I realized it the ants started biting my bare feet. They left marks that took a long time to completely heal. Fire ants would definitely be something I would not want in my house.
I've had mice which I do not like. They are so quiet, but I have seen a few sneak into my house in winter. They have startled me, but I'm sure they are more afraid of me. Anyway, rats would be a bigger problem for sure and I would need a bigger trap!

When we bought our first home, the back porch didn't have a secure floor. The first week we lived there, it had to be replaced. A rat came up from underneath the house and was sitting in our back room! I was so frightened, because we had two small children at that time:(

I had rats in one and when I was done it was shut down. when I had mice I went as ar as I could and it was shut down . Everyone had to move out. where I live no that is not an issue. The worst thing for me would be anything that was not paying to live there .
