Jingles' happy place


Warm winter, wet spring has left me with some buggy problems around here.  blech.  I decided to fight back with a natural approach and bough a big box of DE.  DE stands for Diatomaceous Earth.  It's the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called DIATOMS. Diatomaceous Earth kills by physical action, not chemical, by puncturing the insects' exoskeleton and absorbing its body fluids, thus posing no harm to warm-blooded life.

Essentially, death by a thousand cuts - for bugs.

Plus you can eat it if you wanted to.  No really, some people do.  Just get food grade ONLY.  Not pool grade.

Anway, so this big box comes in the mail.  Gene sits it by my desk and it's been Jingle's happy place ever since.  It's not only the solution to bugs and critters in my house, but it's also the solution to that annoying critter that won't stay off my desk.

The box hasn't been opened yet. :/  I'm thinking I'll open it, take out the DE and stuff it full of magazines and put it back for the cat.

When you look at that theory on paper, it's kind of crazy cat lady type stuff.

Don't worry Jingles, a pile of amazon boxes is my "happy place" too.
Guess I AM the crazy cat lady after all.

Don't feel bad - I'd totally do the same thing. (Also treatment for ants is baby powder in window and door areas. For some reason it kills them!)

No, you're doing something to keep the cat happy AND off your desk which makes YOU happy. It's a win-win situation. :-)

I must be a crazy cat lady as well, as I was thinking you should leave that box for the cat, lol.
Ya, don't think I will be buying the bug killer as a meal replacement anytime soon :(

I love seeing pics of your animal life. I'm not much of a cat person but the antics of your kitties makes me smirk.
