omg that happend to me once, I went to cook a box of mac n cheese and didnt notice anything until I poured the noodles into the boiling water and noticed stuff floating at the top, I looked closer and noticed they were little bugs, I freaked and refused to eat anything that night, I threw out the rest of the mac n cheese boxes I had in there as well, I already keep my rice in plastic containers because I buy it in bulk, its MUCH easier to pull out a plastic container instead of a 20lb bag LOL. My flour and sugar are also kept in plastic containers, luckly I go through it fast enough. Once I found a roach in my powder sugar. I cleaned the entire kitchen and house that night, bought roach motels had my apt complex spray and bait. I hate living in apartments because of dirty people. I use hospital strength wipes that my sister gets for me to clean everything in my house. Seriously these are some bad ass wipes they kill aids virus as well as all the other icky stuff hospitals are exposed to. I sweep and mop my floors every night and still find critters, makes me so angry and grossed out.

The last apartment I lived in had BAD ant problems. The day after the first time I cooked in there I came home from work to find about 10 million tiny ants on my wall and in my trash can. I don't kid! It was amazing. At the top of the can there were about 10 lines of them going in and out, but it branched into a huge funnel shape and the top was about 3 feet wide, the whole thing was 5 feet tall up the wall, all solid ants. Inside the can was black with them, and the outside of the can was covered on one side similar to the wall. I sprayed pure bleach on them and it killed them instantly but that night I woke up to them crawling all over me, tickling, not biting! And I co-slept with my 6 month old, and they were all over her as well. I called the emergency number to the office, crying and they sprayed a caulked and I put diatomacious earth in all the sills and at the base of the walls and around the doors I still found them all the time, for 3 years, but never as bad as the first times. They ate holes out of the front of 3 of my nursing bras (peek-a-boo!), so I assume they were sugar ants. I only bought cake mix, and sugar and powdered sugar as I needed it, and kept it in the fridge.

My husband had a similar problem with roaches at an apartment he had after I threw him out one time. I won't get into it, it was horrible!!! He even kept his dishes, pots and pans in the refrigerater.

Bay Leaves!?! That's BRILLIANT! All natural, and if one of my kids were to get a hold of it and chomp on it, who cares!?! What bugs does that work for? In the summer I have to work my butt off to keep ants away. And of course, everyone in this state has problems with Boxelder bugs and Asian beetles. ERGH!

Last fall my wife started to complain that she kept getting faint urine-like smells from the kitchen, but I could never smell anything. We passed it off as the cat's litter box that was in the basement. A few weeks pass and I start noticing it...we also start to notice that our cat would spend HOURS laying in front of the stove staring at it like she was ready to pounce.

Finally, the day before my daughter's birthday party, my wife turned on the oven to bake her birthday cake and the kitchen filled with the most god-awful funk you have ever smelled in your life. We figured that a mouse had gotten into the oven door and died. So I took the door off and dismantled it....no mouse.

The next step was to pull the range away from the wall and pop the back. I noticed that some of the fiberglass insulation around where the power cable ran up to the range top was disturbed, so we pulled the top off the range.

Turns out a mouse decided to use the insulation around the oven as a home (he actually poked his head out to say hi when we pulled the top)...and he decided to put his 'bathroom' right next to a heating element. So when the oven got hot....

5 minutes later that stove was on the curb and we were in the car racing to the store to buy a new one....and yes, the cake was done on time.

I read somewhere (can't remember where!) that placing spearmint gum sticks (still in the wrappers) in your drawers and around where you have rice, noodles, flour, sugar, etc., would prevent bugs. I have placed spearmint gum every where in my kitchen and I don't have bugs of any kind. Of course I change the gum out about every couple of months, but I haven't had bugs since I started doing it. Can't remember why it's supposed to work so well, though, but it does.

Gerle that is too funny... I couldn't do that because my 5 year old is a gum freak! He would find and chew EVERY piece! icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gif

My 7 year old would do the same thing. She even chews rock hard bazooka left over from Halloween a year later. She figured out how to get it wet, then rewrap it and nuke it in the microwave for 12 seconds. icon_rolleyes.gif

HaHaHaHa! Melvira and Anna, THAT is too funny. My boys are older and only the youngest (26) still lives at home so I don't have that problem. It's amazing what kids can figure out when they want something bad enough!

I thought I had it bad with the f#@*&+ spiders that pop up all over my kitchen. From teeny babies to biggies with the legs you can actually see the hairs on!! icon_eek.gif But we have a ravine in our backyard and there is no shortage of any kind of critters! But those spiders "bug" me the most...just can't get rid of them! icon_cry.gif

I once scraped a web out of a corner behind my TV and when I did, I had about 100 tiny, clear spiders run up my hand and arm. I am so glad there wasn't video, because I FREAKED OUT!!! I was spinning and jumping and flailing, and smacking at them while tearing my shirt off, lol!

HAHAHAHA! Oh em gee, Annabakescakes! Something similar happened to me once when I accidentally stepped on a spider and it was carrying an egg sac! I don't mind spiders that aren't venomous, I've even had a Pink-Toed Tarantula for a pet...but when I realized what had happened and that there were hundreds of little spider infants crawling up my leg (surely en route to eat my face), I FUH-REAKED! I'm sure if anyone saw me I would have looked ridiculous, seeing as how I couldn't even scream, I was just making these weird noises and flailing about!
"Cake or death?" "Eh, cake please." "Very well! Give him cake!" "Oh, thanks very much. It's very nice."
"You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate."
