Well, technically WE didn't have bugs...our house did! :( Termites to be exact. Thankfully, we have AWESOME landlords and they took care of it right away by having the house tented.
It was quite the experience. We had to double bag, in these special bags, all of our food, move Lil' Miss's mattress out, find a place for our kitty to stay, transport our fish, move out our plants and, oh yeah...live somewhere else for three days. Now, when I say all of our food, I mean everything in the pantry, the refrigerator, the freezer, the spices, as well as all oils and other sauces. Basically, the goal was to bag anything and everything that you ingest. Food, medicines, mouth wash, toothpaste, etc.
As with most things we do, we waited 'til 10:30 the night before to get busy. But...it was a fun "date" with Daddy Goose. We chatted, joked at the "insanity" of it all and bagged and bagged and bagged. Finally, two hours later we were done.
Funny enough, after all that prep work, we read that there is no need to wash your sheets, dishes or wipe down any surfaces once the fumigation is complete. Soooo....you have to double bag all of your food and medicines, but the surfaces you eat off of and sleep on are perfectly fine? OOOOkay!?
At the end of the week, we had a fun adventure packing our life up, staying at Grammie & Grandpy Goose's house, watching the pest control company tent our house and coming back home!
