Finally I Poke around and find the angoumois grain moth cocoons in a cabinet. Start looking for the infested product and I find a confused flour beetle also. Anyone else have these days? Just can’t get away from work.”

Jerry shared a story, where he didn’t have the heart to kill a captured mouse.
Bryan admitted to “bringing work home” on several occasions.
