Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice

The picture doesn’t begin to describe how many Asian beetles have infested the bedroom. The best way I’ve found to manage the problem is to vacuum them up. I then take them out immediately because they stink.

Additionally, when I turn on the outside faucet it floods into the kitchen. The house is built on a concrete slab so there’s not crawl space. We’ll have to decide if we cap that faucet or have it repaired by tearing into the wall. I need that faucet for the rose garden, not so much for watering the roses but for keeping the deer away with the motion sensor sprinkler I have out there.

There goes out tax refund, and more. Ah, the joys of home ownership.

  1. We have the same infestation here in Illinois, except it’s in every room! You can vacuum them and 10 minutes later you have just as many! Evidently when they are stressed they pee and can leave yellow stains on the wall and windows. I haven’t had them do that, so I guess I haven’t stressed them out! I guess they are harmless. I’m just tired of vacuuming them every day! If you find a way to get rid of them permanently, let me know!
    Good luck with the water issue!
