I just love the way they fumigate houses around here (and elsewhere, I assume). They get rid of those creepy, crawly, usually hidden critters by putting a big tent over the house and pumping it full of some toxic gas that kills the little invaders. It seems this is usually done when the house is sold and the buyers want assurance that termites and other pests are not part of the reception committee when they move in.
On my morning walk a few days ago I spotted a house being readied for fumigation.
Now that's a tent! It probably has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
