The windows in my apartment are old wooden windows with wooden casings. The A/C in my apartment is a window unit that doesn’t QUITE sit flush with the wall. The heat OUTSIDE my apartment has driven the palmetto bugs/American roaches INTO my apartment via said window space.
Did I mention that said window is IN MY BEDROOM? No? Well, it is. IN. MY. BEDROOM. Nothing like a giant flying roachified bug greeting you after work while you’re changing your clothes.
I’ve actually never had roaches in my apartment. EVER. In ANY apartment. (It’s one of the advantages to being compulsively clean.) So I called my landlord, who basically said, just spray some bug killer on them.
Um, no. HELL to the no, even.
So I’m going home to my mom’s this weekend so I can fog my damn place. And I bought some industrial strength bug-killer to follow up as necessary. I already called my landlord, explained that the bugs are not coming in via “normal” routes, but through the DAMN WINDOW, and that if the owner doesn’t want to spray the outside of the building for bugs, then my windows need to be replaced SO THAT THEY FUCKING SEAL PROPERLY.
There may not be a post on Monday; it depends ENTIRELY on how much cleaning I have to do in order to clean up the poison fog.
That is all.
