Be nice to your basil and maybe you'll be able to make several fresh pestos from it.

I have a ladybug problem at this time of year... :( They somehow sneak in through the window in the bathroom, which opens to a massive tree. we never leave it open... we usually have this problem until the tree is completely full of leaves.

They are SO NASTY. I know people like them and all, but have you EVER heard the nasty crunch of a cat trying to eat one.

*shudder*

There are chemicals you can buy on line. We had to do it few years ago. It helped. I cannot remeber what it was now. But they can live in your drain. They are very hard to get rid off. try to google it. It's all I can tell you.

OMG, I wouldn't want a Tokay gecko running loose in my house. I had one and he wanted to bite everything. His mouth was bigger than his head

The vet was afraid of him, and he was a specialist in unusual animals. Those buggers are mean. And they bark.

No idea, I know Dad had to buy a pair after he killed the ones that lived there. Mom wanted them gone. I was 4 years old and I just remember the scream that was heard in Hawaii the night one dropped on Mom in the dark.
