ok, so ive decided to get out of the city and move to a mountain close to the city. problem is, i’m petrified of bugs. all bugs except ants. i don’t mind ants. i’m especially afraid of anything that flies and generates a wing flapping sound; anything that looks like it has fur, like bees and moths. i don’t even like butterflies because they all seem to be black and hairy in taiwan. i really hate bugs that make any kind of noise… especially cockroaches that sqeek when you’re in the process of dousing them with roach spray or whacking them with a shoe. i can handle mosquitos.
so, my question is this: what can i expect living in the moutains? are there tons of bugs? how can i seal off my home so they don’t come inside? any tips or tricks to repell them? some kind of machine i can plug in that sends anti-bug sonar telling them to stay away?
i want to maintain a zero bug policy in my home.
last night i was up there (have yet to move in) and a big black buzzing thing came in. i locked myself in the bedroom for half an hour before i had enough guts to come out. when i did come out i ran to the door and it chased me. my new neigbor saw this and went inside and killed it for me. that’s how much of a sissy i am… made a complete ass out of myself in front of a new neighbor over a bumble bee.
