Lessons I learned about bugs:
+ Stay stocked with DOOM (insect spray) and keep it near you at all times.
+ Shake out your clothes before putting them on (a spider about the size of the palm of my hand came out of my jacket one day).
+ Check the floor @ night before putting your feet down.
+ Mosquito nets will be your saving grace.
+ Lizards are your friends (they eat spiders and mosquitos).
+ Trust your gut. After a movie night in Gogo’s house, I asked my host sister to walk back with me to my hut because I had a bad feeling about something. Lo and behold, I open the door and turn on the light and a bat is flying around!
