I just filled the vaccuum bag with a ton of spiders. And their webs. And the carcasses of dozens of little fruit flies and a few big moths and lots of dust. And lots of spiders. I had to vaccuum the ceiling too, and I had to be careful that the spiders didn't drop on me. The webs were really visible because of all the carcasses all over them. So now from the front door down to my apartment door is all clean and free of webs. I took the vaccuum outside so I could take the bag out and throw it away, even though it wasn't completely full. There was no way I was going to leave it in the apartment with all those spiders in there, just dying to come out and eat me up for ruining their egg sacs and houses.

Gross. Where were they all from?

We leave the main door open when it's nice out, so I'm assuming they waltzed in the front door! And nobody has cleaned since I did it in the spring, so they had lots of time to look around for the perfect piece of real estate.

How's your eye, by the way?

Spiders, I can live with. (I don't prefer to live with them, but I can live with them.
What I cannot stand are those cockroaches that live in our sewer system. They come out at night and if we leave our doors open (even with the screen), they'll come right into the house. They're an inch or more in size and black. I think they might be Oriental cockroaches. ick!
I spent $45 bucks two weeks ago to spray my porch and our apartment walkway with every chemical combination commercially available for roach killing. I will not have those buggers in my house. yuck.

I've seen ONE cockroach in here, on the kitchen floor one morning. He didn't run away when we walked around him to get a glass to trap him in. He got flushed. (We had to flush him like four times because he wouldn't go down!) For some reason spiders are ickier to me than cockroaches.

Do you get earwigs? We've had four or five this spring/summer.

We used to get earwigs when we lived in California. I hadn't thought about it much, but we really don't get them here. We usually just have a few spiders, moths, flies, and those darn roaches.
The roaches just make my legs weak. I cannot get over it. Fortunately, they are slow and easy to catch.

The only time I got freaked out by one was in Portland, when I woke up and opened my eyes and there was one on my ceiling right above my head. Eek!

It is a good year for spiders because they are all over the place!! Seriously, I have never seen so many before!

Yeah, I usually see them in late summer, and once it starts cooling down they start moving inside where it's warmer. So I'm expecting to have to have another vaccuum session in a couple of months.
