Don't let bugs ruin your summer fun! Save your plans with Combat!


Over the last year I have kept it no secret that it is a constant battle to keep away the bugs! Between roaches and ants I think I am about to lose my mind! Aside from the obvious factor that having bugs crawling around the house is just creepy and gross there are also many health concerns involved. Recently I was given the chance to review some new Combat products. Since we struggle with both roaches and ants the great people at Combat gave me the chance to review both Combat Roach Killing Bait Strips and Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips.
When I got them I was a little surprised by how small they were, but since there was ten in each package I figured that was ok since I would be able to spread them around. As you probably know by now we spent the last 8 days away from the house, and what a better time to rid my house of pests then now!

wow his wall need painting lol
 I discovered that reading the directions meant I popped them off the walls so before trying to stick I removed the front cover and the back sticky :) placing the small strips in my heaviest problem areas I stuck down 5 ant strips and 5 roach strips. It was really fast and easy, and what I liked best is they could be placed out of sight from my cats, because after all I would not want them getting sick while I was gone :(. Coming back into the house I was so eager to see how well this little strips worked. I noticed many things. First I did still have bugs, but they were not adults and for the most part I have not seen adults. My conclusion is I have killed off one generation! So I am cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and replace the obviously eaten strips with fresh ones! I am really excited to know that this may finally be a solution to my ever constant roach problems. Now as far as the ants go, that is a battle I may never win :( the numbers are so great outside that I may always have a couple inside my house, but if I have to chose between roaches and ants I will deal with my pesky ants any day! And who knows, maybe these strips are working on them to, only time will tell!
**The above products were received in order to conduct this review, regardless all views expressed are those of my own and were in no way influenced.**

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
