If you’ve ever been infested with pantry moths you KNOW it. They are nearly impossible to get rid of once they’ve moved in. At our house it happened because a bag of pistachios was forgotten and pushed behind stuff in the pantry. When we began seeing moths we dug around until we came upon the pistachios. They were CRAWLING! Eww.
This is when I realized that for some odd reason they like me. Before we got them under control, if one would be in the living room, I knew it, because it was flying at me, so gross. Not just at home though, oh no, at the grocery store and usually around the nut aisles they will find me and chase me down.
Not too long ago we were at one of those steak houses that have buckets of peanuts on the table. I have pretty much quit going to these restaurants, but we had a gift card. The place was packed. Everyone was eating and drinking normally. I no sooner sat down that here came a pantry moth. I kid you not. No one else in the whole place even knew they existed, but they have to come and attack me. My husband was across from me, and they didn’t bother him at all.
I shewed them away, but pretty soon, they started flying at my girls sitting beside me and diving for my purse. Can you picture it? Here was this completely packed happy restaurant until my girls started shrieking, and I couldn’t blame them. I HATE those things flying at me. Before I knew it all of us girls were practically running around the place. That couldn’t have been good for business! I have to kill them, or they won’t leave me alone. Do we have to cause a scene everywhere we go? Grief!
Someday someone must give me a logical explanation for why these yucky things follow me around, but for now I’ve banned our family from patronizing these types of restaurants–for crying out loud!
