One clearly says HOME INSECT CONTROL and the other says WEED B GONE. Can you tell the difference? Megan couldn't.

No weeds in our basement
I'm sure this story will totally embarrass Megan but I'm going to tell it anyway. Since Kristin and her kids were coming to spend the week and they were going to be sleeping in the basement I decided we should spray for bugs. We never even use the downstairs because there is plenty of room upstairs for Megan, Tanner and me. I have to give Megan a lot of credit because she worked really hard to make the downstairs look perfect. She put clean sheets on the beds, dusted and vacuumed. The last job was to spray for bugs. Now we don't just buy cans of bug spray we get the gallon size industrial strength. Megan was like a professional bug sprayer and worked until every room was adequately sprayed. She was really exhausted at this point from all her hard work. She came upstairs very proud of her accomplishments and then realized, with a look of disbelief and horror, that she had sprayed the entire basement with weed killer, not bug spray. She was very frustrated and upset with herself. But I told her that now we would not have to worry about finding a single weed in the basement all spring. She was not amused at this point. Well we had to let the weed killer dry and then the next morning the bug spray was used. When Kristin arrived that evening I told her that I had very good news for her: She would not have to worry about finding any bugs or WEEDS in the basement. So if anyone is needing to get rid of weeds in their basement just give Megan a call. She's fast, efficient and very thorough.
