Gah!Filter: Today I woke up, and there were bugs.
I live in the basement of an old house and I guess there are cracks in the walls, but I don't know where.
For the last couple of days, I've been catching spiders every time I wake up from a nap/nights sleep or return home from being out for a while. Typically, I turn on the lights to find 4 or 6 or so hiding on the ceiling or in cracks. Sometimes I'll find the odd ant or potato bug meandering about on the walls, but nothing really too gross.
But today... today when I woke up from what is likely to be the last nap I ever take in this room, I found about 5 of these delightful fellows
camped out on the walls by my head. They were big one's, too. Apparently they react to light, because when I turned on a lamp, they scattered. I managed to nail one with a book, but the others are somewhere under my bed. I know they're there. I can feel them. Watching me
But I doubt these will be the last I see of these things. Have any of you guys ever dealt with an infestation like this? Is it going to get worse, or better, as the weather becomes warmer? And what am I going to do, save from sleeping will all the lights on? Do I have to move?
