pest control

Centipedes are hard to kill. You smash them and smash them and they keep on moving. I've actually been told that the only way to kill them is by picking them up and cutting them in half with a pair of scissors! Now, I'm too squeamish to even smash them, so obviously picking one up and cutting it in half is out of the question.

But you know what? It's really not that difficult after all. A while back, Brian told me what to do, and I just did it, and it works. Really well. Dish soap. Squirt it with dish soap. It gets smothered and dies very quickly. Then you can pick it up with 8 layers of paper towel and flush it down the toilet.
