I was having some problems with the wildlife since I was leaving the bathroom window open to prevent mould. "Operation: Fuck Bugs" is in its first stage and the Combat baits I bought this morning seem to be doing their job- haven't spotted one cockroach so far and I saw tons of them yesterday.
What I want to know is how do I keep the leeches out? I seriously found annelids in my bathroom, 0.5mm wide, 5mm long, brown/grey, doing the leech walk (think the dance move 'the worm', from tail to head) in the puddles after I got out of the shower. I found a bunch of dead ones in little blood smears tonight so I can assume they come to eat the arthropods and died from borax ingestion thanks to the Combat. Next is ants and those stupid little clear-winged mini-fly looking things that seem to be harmlessly (but numerously) chilling on the walls in there.... I hope the ants go for the Combat traps too, but if not I'm sure there's specialised ones.
