These stories will make your skin crawl
Some people love them, but most people can’t stand little crawling creatures that can bite you or even just touch you a little bit. It’s so much worse when you find one of them in your house, and it’s absolutely terrifying when your home is infested with them. Luckily, there are people to call to clear them out, but even they can be shaken, depending on how many bugs are in your place.
Spent the summer between high school and college working for a local, family run, exterminating company. Nice gig, residential treatments during the day, mosquito fogging at night, and the occasional dairy farm treated for flies and rats. One day I’m at one of these dairy farms and enter the milking parlor to spray and set up traps. See a rather large cat across the parlor from the front door. Good for him, I think, growing fat eating rodents and whatever else he’s caught over the years.
I enter the parlor and the cat moves, and I realize the cat is not a cat, but a rat; easily the size of a 12-15 pound feline, and running down a drainage pipe. Decided that I did not want to be a sacrifice to the Rat King that day and noped out of there fast. (Montgojs)
Pulled back insulation in a crawlspace to track termite damage. About 100 + baby/juvenile cotton mouths came out from where the dryer vent wasn’t hooked up properly keeping them nice and warm and moist in the insulation as fall approached. I’m only a termite exterminator. Got out that crawlspace quicker than lightning. To this day I’m sure the termites and snakes are living under there happily ever after. (Trex252)
Got called out to a house that had a roach problem. So I walk in the house and I shit you not you could barely see the color of the walls and ceiling for all the roaches. It was literally raining roaches from the ceiling. The people inside just sitting around like its just a normal Monday and laughing about catching roaches falling from the ceiling. Without a doubt the most disgusting thing I’ve encountered. (lcodemanl)
