D-Day at Nellie Mae

Just to make sure that all living insects on the property were taken care of…. I did some self-extermination. There is no way I am taking any chances with my family of four + dog having “visitors” enter the house ūüėČ

So, Step 1.  we took care of any general pests/bugs/ ants with Spectricide Granules that covered the whole yard.

Step. 2 I sprayed the entire exterior and interior perimter of the home with Home Defense Extermination for all pests.

Step. 3. We put out “De-con” in the crawl-space to take care of any mice that might ever be brave enough to enter my personal boundaries.

Step 4. I will repeat all of these in 6 weeks.

Tim thinks it’s a bit overboard and that one of our kids might grow a third arm from all these chemicals, but did you read the first post i ever did on this blog?!!!! There was a HUGE dead rat inside the property when we found it.

Anyway, these products are completely safe and¬†you can buy them at Home Depot. I also haven’t seen one bug on that property. That’s just the way I like it!

We have all the light fixtures, chandeliers, fans, ect installed in the house and the¬†bathroom is almost complete!!¬†We are shooting to move in next Sat, but it might be a stretch. We may pull a mid week move in that Wednesday…

We have the floors to sand down,¬†baseboards to go in, still finish painting those¬†darn windows,¬†all interior doors to go in,¬†cabinets to paint, appliances¬†to go in, and finish tiling the kitchen. We just might be able to pull this thing off….

    I feel more normal after reading this post. I don’t trust any bug man to spray my house well enough, so I do it myself (and treat outside, as well). I hate, hate bugs, and never see them alive in my house.

    I’m loving the progress you’re writing about! Y’all have worked hard and have a beautiful home to show for it!
