Last month I was on a family vacation in Minesotta and I was sitting on a dock with my family just chit chatting, I looked down and saw a HUGE beatle crawling up my arm! I jumped up and freaked out, almost falling into the lake. My family is still teasing me about it!

Thanks for the chance :) chocoa16@yahoo.com

I was surprised how tiny of a crevice mice can sneak through! Makes you want to go through your house to make sure everything is sealed up

This is embarrassing, but we live in a duplex and they put some really questionable neighbors next to us. One morning I woke up and there was a roach (from those dang neighbors unit) floating in my fish tank. I was so disgusted. We had to have the whole duplex treated. So miserable. I hate bugs! Luckily, they were gone on the first spray.

I had a Malaysian House Gecko jump on my thigh, and it didn't matter how hard I shook my leg the thing wouldn't get off. It was horrible I think the whole neighborhood heard my screams

I liked the tip of tossing the clothes in the dryer to make sure ticks are gone

When we moved into our home now, I would walk down in the basement and see 5 or more spiders each time. Each time I killed them off and they just kept coming back. We have solved the problem now, thank goodness.

I knew that spiders like to eat other insects, but I don't usually think about getting rid of other insects in order to get rid of spiders. That is interesting.

My craziest pest experience would be the insect my cat brought to me in bed. I couldn't sleep at all that night worrying that she might bring me more.
