So the house that we’re renting was previously rented by a long chain of frat boys, and needless to say, it was pretty gross. We got rid of the gnat problem, but the roaches! They’re still here! (If you go outside at night, you’ll see a lot of them, especially.) We probably kill an average of one per day. (Which doesn’t seem like a lot, probably, but it’s really gross, still.)
We tried using those foggers that you drop into a little thing of water, and that didn’t work. I’ve sprayed the perimeter of the house (inside and out) twice with that ortho something keep the bugs away spray, and they’re still here.
I’d love to get an exterminator over here for an estimate, but I’m afraid that he’ll be like “ooh, college kids with mommy and daddy’s money, let’s jack up the price!” and I wanted to get an estimate of what it should cost before I call them up.
