This made me laugh.
When I lived in Alabama, my BF lived for awhile with her boyfriend in a really old house that had been split into 4 apartments. They were on the first floor and at the time the upstairs neighbors had a dog that they left alone for a few days with a big bag of dog food. Of course the dog knocked the bag over and spread the food all over and that drew the horde of cockroaches that literally started falling from the ceiling on us as we tried to watch TV one night.
That did not make me laugh.
EEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I hope she said something to the neighbor when tey got back!

Yeah, the place was disgusting.

But it was nothing compared to the basement. The amount of cockroaches down there was something out of a horror movie.

<quoted text>bug spray
I don't do bug spray. I hate the idea of filling the air in my house with poison. Of course I don't have to deal with cockroaches/palmetto bugs/waterbugs/whatever so there's that. I do have a spider issue though. They come out (and IN) as soon as the weather warms up. I read that spraying WD-40 around the windows and doors outside keep them sour so I tried that. Probably poison too...petroleum product and all, but at least it's OUTside, not inside. So far, so good.:D

I thought she meant it kept the windows and doors sour for the bugs. I never tasted WD40, so it made perfect sense to me!

Yeah, I am very careful what I eat when traveling. Most Asian food (in Asia) scares me. I tend to be a vegetarian when I travel. <shrug>
