yoshimi vs. the 3-inch flying cockroaches
according to the kil-mor lady, i have woods cockroaches.
i'm guessing my perpetually wet basement, into which i've carried old firewood, where i keep lights on all the time, might have something to do with this problem. guess it's time to start turning off the lights and burning that firewood! too bad it's a little warm...
given the seemingly huge extent of the invasion, i'm going to go forward with the nasty toxic chemicals in addition to other abatement activities. there's just no way i can get that basement to stop leaking any time soon.
i've also got an appointment for the roofers to come out, though not any time soon. and i'm getting a termite inspection. and i left a messsage for the tree guy. i am the yoshimi of house care.

what's the name of the tree guy again? I was just looking in my back yard and realized that one of our trees is looking kind of dead. it's in a bad position too -- really close to the shed and cars, and too close to the house.

Yoshimi! Very nice. We've used Kil-Mor too. If I hadn't been so annoyed at the ant invasion that prompted me to call them, I would have been amused at how they spell their name.
(although "Killo" in Raleigh is a little funnier, I think)
