Hey Katz! My 90 y.-o. entomologist Grandpa fought malaria in WWII by killing mosquito populations in Brazil. He talks about how a tiny droplet of DDT in a room-size aquatic tank exterminated everything within inside within hours. ouch. not what you want to spray around a house.

Dunno, Else, maybe a little DDT wouldn't be such a bad thing here. Did wonders for malaria ....

Nasty indeed...

Another way to avoid those nasty critters is with a latex mattress. 100% latex rubber is naturally antimicrobial and eaily cleanable.

Will you sleep tight tonight?
