Controlling Office Pests (the Human Ones)
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a can of spray solution that would keep the office pest from bothering you? You know the kind; they invade your space, talk right in your face, always ask for favors, and want to tell you story after story about everything and anything that somehow you find particularly annoying.
These pests are not the bullies that are all over the news; they are the harmless time wasters who are yearning for uninvited friendship. They may take surveys about what you like the most for lunch or should there be three kinds of sweeteners near the coffee. Mostly, they are bland and boring when they talk.
The problem is they talk and talk and talk and talk. You get the drift.
There is a natural pest control that is highly effective and does not create a toxic environment. However, it takes some time for the effect to show up. And it takes a conscious effort for you to participate in a positive way.
The best way to alleviate the annoyance of the office pest is to talk with them. Please note they are usually insecure individuals who never learned the art and craft of relationship. They were usually on the sidelines in high school and were the wannabes hoping to get some recognition from the queen bees.

Since they are looking for attention, the best pest control is...bet you guessed it: to give them some attention. Here is how it works; take a few minutes and talk to them. I mean really talk to them. Ask them their opinion on anything at all. Now, if you tell them you have oh, maybe five minutes to chat, and then let them have the floor, it will make a difference. Yes, they will talk a lot; so what? You are in the business of pest control in the most humane and non-toxic way possible.
