My apartment is actually a condominium that I’m renting. The condo association does periodic exterminator visits. I missed the one right after I moved in, and I think I saw an increase in bug activity because of it.
Over Christmas, the exterminators came again, and this time I didn’t miss it. The bug activity is almost completely zero. Except for these tiny, tiny ants that plague me. I see them in my kitchen and in my bathroom. I’ve tried Terro, but it doesn’t seem to work on them. Dang. Now I just squish them whenever I see them.
