While we all like to think that our baby’s room is the safest in the house, even I, the mom that’s supposed to be the pest detective, have had a few unexpected visitors. Just the other day, I was catching up on chores -- finally getting to the baby clothes that had been sitting in a pile -- when I almost jumped through the ceiling. I picked up a onesie and found a large spider staring at me.
I know it's said that spiders are more afraid of us than we are of them -- but in that moment I wasn’t so sure. Unfortunately, for other bug-dreading mothers like myself, spiders are not the only pests you will find in a nursery.
