Very frustrating couple of days spent combatting a scourge of small flying insects in my house and getting very little homework done between bouts of spraying Windex (only nominally non-toxic substance I had that I could use indoors) and soapy water (when the Windex ran out), mopping up insect bodies with masses of soggy paper towels, and vaccuming both the living and the dead off the bedroom carpet. Infestation on the likes of a horror movie; inside and out of window screens in living room and BEDROOM (AAAUUUUUGGGHHHH!) crawling with tiny flying little bastards. Have also been going round the outside of the house pulling up scrub brush and weeds so that I could access and spray Raid into the crevices they appeared to be crawling in and out of. They are either a flying form of sugar ant or are very chummy with the ants, as these flying bastards and the ants are - make that were - coming and going from the same holes near the base of the wall. Oh, and an infestation of sugar ants in the kitchen, too; have been setting baited traps for them in there and trying to make sure that the baits aren't acccesible to the stupider of my two cats.
I had previously made a verbal agreement with all the bugs in my house that as long as I couldn't see them, it was okay for them to be here - these guys violated the agreement and I will KILL THEM ALL.
I am SO SICK OF FUCKING BUGS RIGHT NOW.
