Quit bugging me!

Jeeze Louise! This sounds like an episode straight out of House, M.D.

That poor baby and family. Couldn't Momma read and follow the instructions?

I never thought foggers would be useful against roaches, who many believe would survive a nuclear war.

Bug spray likely killed infant, injured 2 in SC

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Bug spray that produces a fog to kill insects is likely to blame for the death of a 10-month-old South Carolina boy, and his 2-year-old brother was critically injured by the fumes, authorities said Monday.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown said the boys' mother had been using foggers in their single-wide mobile home in Williamston, in the northwest part of the state, because of an insect problem. Elizabeth Whitfield, 25, called 911 on Sunday afternoon to report her youngest son was having trouble breathing.

Paramedics took all three to a hospital, and Jacob Whitfield was pronounced dead. His brother, Kenneth, was flown to another hospital about 20 minutes north to Greenville, where he remained Monday on a respirator, but was starting to stabilize, McCown said.
