I am not brave when it comes to pests around the house. My cat, dog, and husband are in charge of extermination. They all three do a great job taking care of me and our house. Recently in a blog I shared that I review products. One product I found that helps immensely is an ultrasonic pest repeller. It is effective for rodents, insects, mice, cockroach, spiders, rats, ants, flies, fleas, bugs, lizards, and snakes. The one I reviewed was sold by T & T Company. It works like a charm. No more stink bugs, flies, or wasps. Spiders are all outside, too. Love it!
As good as the ultrasonic pest repeller is, there are some problems with it. The path in front of it needs to be clear so that the ways get out into the room. Chairs, appliances, purses and such block the waves.
Occasionally we have mice here in our little home. Recently our cat was on duty in the kitchen by the dishwasher. Diligently he sat for hours watching and waiting. No mouse. Historically if a mouse is coming inside it makes its way in through a small top kitchen drawer. (Ewww, I know.) I learned long ago to use that as a junk drawer. My hubby decided since the cat had no luck it was time to call in the big guns, him. A mousetrap was baited with peanut butter and placed in that notorious drawer. Every morning before coffee I would squeamishly check to see if there was an executed mouse. Nope. After a few weeks I got lax and the every day slipped to every other or so. Still no mouse. My cat obviously was stalking an imaginary one.
This week after coffee I decided the mouse check was long overdue. I opened the drawer and…no mouse. Guess what?! No mouse trap either. Immediately I woke up my hubby to ask if he had spared me the sight and thrown “the body,” mousetrap and all, away. Confused doesn’t even begin to describe the look he gave me.
We have a mouse conundrum. Do we have a Mighty Mouse running amuck with a mousetrap joined to his foot or tail? Perhaps our rescued cat opened the drawer and disposed of the dead mouse for me. He is extremely grateful that we saved him. A dear friend of mine recently had her rescued cat bring her a mouse, and he is declawed and only has three legs. Maybe rescue furbabies have super powers because they are so thankful. They turn all of their energy and gratitude into loving and caring for the humans that saved them.
What would you do if you were saved? If someone set you free from a caged in life and gave you a life of total safety, nurture, and love? Would you use all of your strength and energy for them? Well, guess what…we have been saved by the precious blood of Jesus. We might not have super powers but He does. His blood frees us from sin and gives us life after death, eternal life.
If you haven’t already prayed the prayer to accept Him, you should seriously think about it. Talk to someone about it. Send me a note and I will pray with you. Let Him rescue you. I’m so happy that I did.
