Product Endorsement of the Week: Mortein


This is a product that you cannot afford to live without. Luckily it can be had from any local faleoloa and at a reasonable price.

According to Wikipedia:
Mortein is an Australian brand of household insecticide. Together with its sister product Aerogard, a popular insect repellent, Mortein has become something of a household name in Australia, owing much in this regard to its cartoon antagonist, Louie the Fly.
I know nothing about Louie the fly, but I can tell you that Mortein is a household name in the Fale o Reeves and I am sure in fales across the country. Are you taking a shower without your contacts in and realize the wall is moving on its own? Oh, it is hundreds of ants? You are gonna want to Mortein the mess out of that. In fact, to be on the safe side, you are gonna want to Mortein the mess out of your house about once a month. Cuts down on the cockroach and centipede sightings.

Speaking of centipedes, the Mortein does not kill them, it only makes the angry. And an angry centipede is the last thing you want. Even though Mortein is an indispensable product that you will use on countless bugs, countless times. You are still going to need to keep some sort of menacing, heavy or sharp object handy that you can use to bludgeon or cut the centipedes to death. 'Cause that is the only thing that will kill the bastards.

thank goodness for mortein!!! sounds like you could literally be carried off by crawly things...
i you mix some boric acid with water and spray around the baseboards of your house, this seems to create a barrier for crawly creepies, according to an exterminator that milton talked to.
good luck
