Bugs. Not cool.


I hate bugs. Seriously. Hate bugs.
Hubby loves them. If he sees one inside he rushes to its rescue before I can stomp on it…if I even have the balls to stomp on a bug that day.
He found a beetle on its back and its leg all messed up and nursed it back to health on our balcony before it flew away. What was I doing during this? Freaking out that he was touching it, while cowardly waiting for it to be gone. I have no idea where this fear of bugs came from but when I was a kid I was TERRIFIED of butterflies. Like, I remember crying because a butterfly flew next to me in our backyard. Who does that? Flying bugs are so much worse.
We have our first outbreak of tiny little fruit flies. I blame Germany and its ‘no garbage disposal’ lameness. No matter how many times I pour a baking soda and white vinegar cocktail down the drain, the flies still come out of it. So now the house has vinegar/lemon soap booby traps all over, catching the little buggers in the act.
Hubby could care less about them which infuriates me.
Especially when I have my coffee cup sitting out for 5 minutes before I find two bugs floating inside. They love coffee. Not as much as I do, so after washing out my mug 25 times to get rid of any bug residue, I now have to cover my cup with a napkin so I dont get roofied by a fruit fly.
Hubby says it was probably coffee grinds. With wings. Real cute.
P.S. our coffee table is permanently covered in Legos now.
End rant.

    I just had the same thing in my house- multiple plastic cups of vinegar and laundry detergent all in the kitchen! It works & the fruit flies are gone, but my house still smells like vinegar! urgh!

    Fruit flies are the worst! You can also drown them in Captain Morgan… we had some last fall, and w had the bartender pour spouts on a few bottles. Our Captain was forever ruined, but we caught a whole bunch in the bottle before we even knew what was happening.

    I put 2 drops of dawn in apple cider vinegar and that seems to kill them prety quick.

    Yuck, I hate bugs too. I am terrified of them and in turn, it has made my daughter terrified of them. I scream and wale my arms around like a weirdo while people stare at me haha. I love the "roofied by a fruit fly" and how your hubby said "coffee grounds with wings" lol! This post was cute especially the graphic.

    Bless your heart! I feel your pain! I'm too much of a wimp to step on bugs too, especially if I'm wearing flip flops. I don't know if I just think they're gonna jump up and give my foot one last bite before they go or what. I have been known to spray them with whatever is closest to me. This includes the day my husband came home our new apartment (that was right next to a huge patch of woods) and found beetles hairsprayed to the wall and floor and me at my mothers house because I couldn't handle waiting on him to get home! HA!

    Bugs are the worse. They are super gross. They all should die. I completely agree with you 100%. End of rant.

    I'm with you! I HATE bugs!! I get creeped out by crickets and grasshoppers because they jump!! AH!
    My husband likes to give them personalities and little voices and then I start to feel all guilty that I want them dead.
