BUGS!

Aargh! I just took my break and I had to kill 2 roaches! One of which was in my bathroom! This makes me SO mad. I hate bugs and in our old place we never had a problem with them. First thing tomorrow I am going to complain and try to get some sort of solution going. I do not want to live in fear that every time I walk into a dark room and turn on the light I will see skittering! I just can't do it! GROSS!!!

You may have to set of a bug bomb and leave it on all day. You have to be so careful because of the kids. Especially Brady won't know that he should leave them alone. I hate those things. You may need to set of more than 1 bomb (put one in the kitchen 1 in the bathroom and 1 in the living room and 1 near the bedrooms. That is one of the reasons I hated living in the South. W@hen we lived in Savanah, GA we would have to set off bug boms periodically. They called them water bugs. In a fancy hotel in Miami we ran across roaches and boy was Mom upset. So be very careful since you have little kids.

I TOLD you not to move into Forest Ridge, now didn't I?? ;) I guess its too late now. We never had bug problems, but you are right there by the water, so maybe thats it. Make management come and solve the problem...b/c its THEIRS not yours!
Water bugs suck...

SarahK must be from the south because only southeners call roaches water bugs!

Haha! I am from TX, too...but I heard my neighbors talking about their waterbug problems....so I looked it up!! It totally makes sense to call them waterbugs! Get rid of the water, get rid of the bugs...ha ha ha!

yeah, the ones that we have are relatively small (not like the 2 in x 1 in ones) and we do think that they are coming from behind the dishwasher. An exterminator is supposed to come and check ithings out soon! Everything else is great about the apt. just the nasty bugs that bother me. They aren't everywhere we just see maybe 2 or 3 a day, but that is still too many for me!
