Get a gallon sized garden spray bottle, and spray carpets, bedding, furniture and every nook and cranny of your house. Cover the bucket and then repeat spraying daily for a week.
After that, once or twice a week should keep your home and your pets flea-free. Fruit flies are the one downside of delicious summer fruit. Sometimes they just come in with the groceries. If you see even one, give the kitchen a good cleaning, and check your fruit. Get rid of anything that looks super-ripe immediately. Keep a spray bottle of water handy, and just spray them when you see them. The water will make their wings too heavy to fly. Keep the spray up, and they will drown. If you have a lot of fruit flies, pour half a glass of red wine or apple cider vinegar, and cover the glass with plastic wrap.
Poke some holes in the plastic wrap so that the fruit flies can easily dive into the glass. Wait until the fruit is covered with fruit flies, put the cover on, and then take the fruit out and leave it somewhere far from your house! Spiders are among the easiest pests to get rid of. Just spray your home with a mixture of essential peppermint oil and water, or vinegar and water.

It's an easy-going read which inspires kids not to quit the first time things get hard. I could have used a little more fun 'Freaking Out' in the start of the book, but the illustrations are great and so is the friendship with Polly the Ladybug who helps Eensy Weensy overcome her fears one step at a time.
This would be great for kids who are at the age of learning to ride a bike or swim or other activities which take time a resilience to learn. Dec 13, Carrie rated it it was ok.

One fake ending and one that goes on too long. This started out as a cute idea, but the Eensy Weensy Spider is only scared for a couple pages, then spends most of the book outdoing herself. For a better book on getting over fears and failures, try Tiptop Cat. Apr 02, Olivia Slykhuis rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books-to-use. Cute story. I think kids would like the twist on the familiar rhyme. Cute details, like eensy holding two cups of tea and a kettle cause she has so many hands.
I also enjoyed when she climbed the dog. Would use for a facing your fears or bugs storytime. Would display. Feb 21, Mouse rated it really liked it. My lil boy and I are big fans of Troy Cummings! We read all his Notebook of Doom books and other stuff too. This is a good book about teaching kids to overcome their fears. It's a take on the ol eensy weensy spider.
Feb 27, Donna Mork rated it really liked it. Spider gets washed out of the water spout and is scared to climb. Her friend ladybug encourages her to try to climb. So she does, and it's easy, so she climbs everything, taller and taller. At last, she climbs a rocket and it takes off into space, and she has the best view any spider has ever had.

Not overly funny which is a bummer after title that seems to imply otherwise. Sep 27, Brooke rated it it was amazing Shelves: children-s-picture-books , st-prek. This is a different take on the Itsy Bitsy Spider. It is pretty funny and would work well for a pre-k storytime about spiders. You could start with a non-fiction book about spiders, sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider, and then read this book.
Connections: twist on Itsy-Bitsy Spider. Mar 16, SaraKat rated it liked it Shelves: animals , picture-book , juvenile. Cute story about overcoming fears and getting back in the saddle after a set-back.
It was cute that the spider was climbing higher before she even knew it. I was kind of worried at the end.
