I have lived in my apartment less than a week and I already have ants! I haven't seen bugs for like three years so i was really creeped out by them. When I used to live in Ahwatukee (suburb of Phoenix) our apartment was backed up into a foothill so there were always cockroaches and scorpions around. But since I moved from there I haven't seen any bugs inside.
A few days ago I saw two ants crawling on the wall, killed them and thought, eh? But then two days ago, Brad poured a bowl of cereal and they were covered in ants. Thankfully I was still sleeping and didn't have to witness that. Still, I had not seen any during the day time. Then last night after going to bed, I got up to get a glass of water, turned on the kitchen light and there were like 15 ants crawling on the kitchen wall.
They startedd scattering, I grabbed some spray cleaner and paper towels and proceeded to kill as many as possible. I think they are coming in/living behind the cabinets. Of course the cabinets that I decided to keep our FOOD IN! I had dreams about this last night, it was not fun. My skin is crawling just thinking about this. Thankfully a sprayer guy is coming today to get rid of them.
I don't like killing insects, but for a really crazy reason. I am always scared that their friends are going to stalk me and attack me while I'm sleeping.
This is similar to the fear I had as a child when it came to my dolls and stuffed animals. I always kept them upright, face up, and talked nice to them. I didn't want them to be mad at me and come to life at night and attack me. I still can't sleep with the closet door open. Seriously. Crazy.
