Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do

I like protecting nature as much as the next person.  I try to use natural products and stay away from harsh chemicals.  I appreciate we have taken over other species' habitat and so insects and animals may need to share our homes.

It seems I draw the line with all of these things at cockroaches and mosquitoes.  I've tried cohabiting with them and I just cannot.  At school I can easily get 30 bites on just one leg, and recently have been finding little baby cockroaches in the kitchen.   After trying more natural methods of keeping them away from me, I've pulled out the big guns.  Really, they left me no choice (these scientists may be mad at me for my decision).

Now those baby cockroaches are dead (and I haven't seen a big one in the house yet) and the mosquitoes held at bay with bug spray and an electric bug bat.  The ants seem to still be hanging out, but I'm ok with them (unless they start to take over my kitchen!)
