Getting Rid of Pests

I am cleaning the house everyday but still I see mice roaming around. Seem like they are teasing me, saying “Come and get me if you can.” I know they are part of animal kingdom and that they have lives. They may be doing their jobs out in the nature but when they are in our homes and yards, they are pests, right? Pests can do harm to our properties or worst, can pose dangers to our family. Getting rid of them is like killing fire ant nests in your lawn. They keep on coming back when not treated well.I suddenly remember my grandfather struggling with fire ants. He didn’t want to use common pesticides. According to him, these pesticides are made of toxic chemicals which are harmful to humans and poisonous to the environment. He just blanched them with boiling water. It worked but not for so long because the fire ants just moved to a different part of the yard. Then he finally unveiled the secret and found a solution. The best thing to do is to know more about these pests – how they spread into different areas, the extent of the damage they can make to properties and the dangers they pose to people. By knowing how they live and operate you can easily know how to stop and exterminate them.

Hmmm…I think I have to do the same thing to get rid of these mice.

    A very timely post about pest as Bataan and other parts of the country are experiencing massive worm infestations. To me, this is a sign of God's displeasure for the Filipino nation as He promised not to release the devourer to those who religiously tithe (Malachi 3:10). It is not only tithing that is the issue here but complete abandonment of God's cause by most Filipinos whose form of worship is only superficial and outwardly. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
