u go to open your blinds in the living room and see a big light brown spider? and when u look a bit closer you see a bunch of light brown BABY SPIDERS!!!!!

i was pissed when i saw this!!

my daughter stands on our chair and playing in the window sill right there!!

i went in and waited about 15 min because they never help u right away... and i told them i need someone to come in my house TODAY and do something about the family of spiders that are living in my window. Because ive been here TWICE in the past 1 1/2 months about the ants and the ONE spider i saw and its now a FAMILY. she said

"sorry but u just missed the exterminators its going to be another week!"
and put her hands out like its out of her hands.

i told her "im going to be pissed if my daughter *who i was holding* gets bit or stung or something by these spiders, someone maintenence WHOEVER needs to come out here and kill them or spray SOMETHING"... CONT

  • I think you need to exterminate them yourself for the safety of your daughter. Just because your landlord provides extermination services, that does not mean that they are responsible or held liable for bugs entering your apartment. Bugs can enter a place of residence many different ways. Just because they are there does not mean that they were put there by your landlord's company.

  • she said "we don't carry any bug spray and im not going to have you talk to me like that" and started walking away!! WTF?! thats how u treat your tenants?? im concerned and pissed because your office ppl screwed up.

    (bullshit they dont) because when i started getting pissed... and yes i get teary eyed when im arguing LOL but i stuck to being stern!)
    and she realized the family that was in there that she was writing a new lease with heard, she said well come in my office and ill have maintenence come out and do something. sure enough

    they said they will and they should be out here in 30 minutes.....if not she told me to go back inside...

    *might i add that i ahve major problems with this apt complex....i cant wait to move when our lease is up! ***

  • Ummm,just spray them with a household cleaner or something. You don't need an exterminator for that,it isn't an infestation of roaches or something. Get all primal on em momma! Smack em with your broom!

  • Why don't you go buy or borrow a can of raid and kill them? After they are dead use windex to clean up. Then vaccum that window sill when its dry.

  • oh, and find a new complex! i wouldn't want my daughter living with spiders that they obviously aren't actually taking care of.

  • go get a caulk that has borex in it, line the outside of the windows and doors!

  • Sounds like that was just a pregnant spider that somehow entered your apartment and gave birth, lol.. Not an infestation.. Simply a female spider trying to find a home for her young.. It is mid summer. Bugs come in all the time.. Your apartment complex can not guarantee that bugs will not somehow enter your home.. All they can do is provide extermination services, which is not required, and try to control the pest problems. I rent a home, and we have bugs enter our home from time to time.. We simply kill them and move on with our lives.
