Today, I’m going to write about something that adds a great spice to life. It lives in every article I’ve ever written, but I’ve never dared write about it, lest the writing gods strike me dead.
What on earth am I talking about? I’m talking about that sense of mystery—the feeling that you don’t know what’s coming next. Will this article be about pests, or…dogs in India or whatever I write about when I’m on a tangent? Has the mystery of it caught you, like a curious mouse, in the jaws of its snap trap?
Speaking of mysteries, twenty years ago I got a call for a routine bat estimate. Arriving at the home, I heard a chorus of squeaking sounds coming from a wall—a sure sign that dozens of bats were living inside the wall void. To get them out, I needed to find the opening on the outside of the house that the bats use to come and go. Not finding it, I came back at sundown when bats fly outside to feed—but saw no bat fly outside. I returned the next few evenings, but I never saw a bat.
Then, on the third evening, a funny thing happened. When the homeowners answered the door, they said, “Mike, we don’t hear a peep anymore.” I grabbed my handy stethoscope, put it to the wall, and listened intently. The silent verdict: the bats were gone. And they never came back. Weird.
Hey, homeowner, do you have bats, rats, mice or other problem critters? In over thirty years of pest management, I’ve only seen one pest problem solve itself. Just like casinos in Vegas, Mother Nature has stacked the deck in her favor. Call Home Defenders today!
Now, how will I end this article? Will I come up with a witty punchline? An insightful thought? Who knows, just sit back and enjoy the playful mystery of it all.
The afterglow is really good too, huh?
