Bugs Bugs Bugs!

They are coming from everywhere! I have tons of dead little bugs by my front door, live ones are popping up from my baseboards.

A couple of nights ago, a HUGE waterbug/palmetto bug/cockroach fell from my ceiling fan onto my floor and freaked me the f*ck out! Seriously, I was almost in tears...

I jumped up from the sofa, put on shoes (but wouldn't step on something this huge) and grabbed the bug spray. I grabbed my phone to call my mom and meanwhile, Monsoon Raid is coming down on the piece of sh*t! Everytime it moved I screamed! Finally, it ran underneath my sofa. I sprayed all around the sofa creating a fog of death around the sucker. I moved the sofa later, used a broom to go under and never found the thing.

Meanwhile, I'm giving my mom the play by play on the phone, panicking. I couldn't find it. I refused to sit on the sofa as I was scared it crawled up in there.

I was scared to go to bed that night as I have a ceiling fan over my bed. I didn't sleep well that night!

I keep my house clean! No food is left out, no dirty dishes, counters are clean, laundry is stored in the hamper, etc. I AM.NOT a dirty person! Where the hell are these things coming from?

I live in a decent apartment. I would hope that the people next to me or above me are not breeding these things!

Mind you, I just had the place sprayed three weeks ago!

Then last night, when I got home from my moms, I went to jump in the shower and saw a regular sized roach between my shower curtain and liner. I jump out of the shower dripping wet, go and put on shoes, grab the spray. I shake the curtain from the outside until he falls out and stomp the hell out of him and then drown him in spray just in case he was trying to take a last breath!

I can't take this! Isn't there something in the lease about living in a bug free environment??? I'm going to have them bomb the place while I'm in Denver this week! If it's not better when I get back, I'm living in my truck!

The palmetto's are just a part of life. Not because of dirt or anything - but the spraying should keep them out. From now on if you buy potato or onion bags - open them outside. Biggest "vehicle" for the buggers to travel in.

As to the other. Maybe coming from the neighbors thru the walls. Make Them Come Spray Again. You should not have to bomb!!!

I'm so sorry - that's like living in hell!!

Where's the pictures? We want pictures...


Seriously, though, just toss a few motels under the sinks and you should be fine...but you might want to get someone ELSE to throw them away in a few months...
