“Mommy, Why Does Our Home Have Cockroaches?” – And Other Curious Inquiries About Infestations

I remember the day my mom called me into her bedroom. She was on the phone with a friend, and as soon as I walked in, I knew something was wrong. “What’s up?” I asked, trying to sound casual. “Our home has cockroaches,” she said, looking defeated. “I don’t know what to do.”

If you’ve ever had a pest infestation, you know that it’s one of the most frustrating things imaginable. Our clients at Classic Pest Control Operators, Inc. have shared some horrid accounts of pest infestations that leave you fearful of a full-blown invasion by these creepy crawlers. Here are some stories that show how people battled this invasion.

Rodent in the Attic

Rodent infestation is the worst; they are dangerous and can cause a lot of damage. One family we worked with had a rat in the attic. They could hear it running around and gnawing on the insulation. The family was terrified, especially the kids. After a while, the family discovered a family of rats scurrying inside the attic and ready to fight anyone that intervened. Although we set up traps and caught the rats, it was a close call.

Don’t Let the Bedbugs Ruin Your Night.

Bedbugs are the stuff of nightmares. Unfortunately, they are also a reality for some people. One person we spoke to had bedbugs, and it was a total nightmare. They said, “I would-be lying-in bed, and all of the sudden I would feel something crawling on me. It was so creepy.” They tried everything, but nothing worked. Finally, they had to call in an exterminator who used heat to kill the bedbugs.

Bedbugs are especially dangerous if you have kids at home because they can easily pick them up at school or on playgrounds. Check your child’s backpack for bedbugs when they come home from school.

Pests Can Ruin Your Party

You don’t want pests to show up uninvited if you’re throwing a party. Unfortunately for one family, that’s precisely what happened. The family was hosting a fourth of July BBQ when, to their surprise, a rat showed up. Although they managed to shoo off the lone ranger, the event left the hosts red in the cheeks and the guests scurrying to keep their collectibles out of harm’s way.
