    That's what I like, a motivated individual.
    If everybody squishes a spider twice a day, the world should be free of them in about 2 billion years.

    I just saw these advertised on TV the other night, very interesting. But you do wonder about long term safety.

    Caution-Hazards to humans and domestic animals:

    * Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
    * Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing.
    * Avoid breathing vapor.
    * Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum or using tobacco.
    * Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
    * Store away from food, beverages and pet food.
    * Do not use indoors or in enclosed spaces............ Etc, Etc

    So if this is being put into the air all around you, how do you avoid breathing it? What would the long term risk be of this being in the air that( you are breathing) surrounds you for 12 hours compared to, say, fabric that has been sprayed with Permethrin on the outside, and allowed to dry before using?

    Not trying to be negative, this device is very interesting, and I may try one. Just saying- and asking.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    When I was in Vietnam I was using a bug net to sleep under. Before getting in we'd spray inside the net to get the critters that had managed to wiggle in during the night (I worked nights and slept days) We'd still end up getting bit.
