Down south we have the WORST problem with what we call "palmetto bugs"... which doesn't sound too bad! Actually, the proper term is "American Cockroach" - which sounds disgusting, and they are. Lately, I've been experiencing at least one of these pesky
little big guys in my apartment. You would think you only get these pests if you live in an old, nasty, dirty, cluttered space. I am VERY clean! and it's nice! How do they get in and what attracts them?! I have a lot of trees around me, and live by the water, so I feel that is one reason. But I really cannot stand them, they are disgusting, ugly, flying bugs that do no good for anyone! What is their purpose?! And how can I eliminate these nasty pests?! Suggestions? Does anyone else have these too? I'm so scared I'm going to see one when Brice isn't there to kill them for me. I typically run squealing to my room and close the door until he's successfully flushed them down the toilet! HELP!
