Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know


Or, the things I find in my old house. This is for the regulars at Ye Olde Stoat Y Weasel Bar and Grill who have professed shock and amazement when I revealed my Dark Secret. Yes, there is still DDT in the bottle. It was with some trepidation that I cleared out the huge shed attached to my property. It took me nearly a year, and I was giddy with relief when I didn't find any bodies. Because, you know, there could have been.

Whooo! Miller's is the *good* stuff -- it'll drop an Aedes aegypti dead as a doornail from fifty feet!
