Hi guys, what are the household pests that you fear or hate most? for me its lizards and cockroaches, especially flying cockroaches and i guess it quite common household pests in my country mainly because of the hot weather. I remember once there is a flying cockroach flying around in my house and me and my sis got freaked out by it, and it the end my father caught it and laugh at us for being so timid.

For me, it has to be bedbugs! I am not afraid of them, but they are the most annoying when they are in the house, because if not done right or professionally, they stay forever. Also, they don't just eat leftovers or things left out like a respectable roach or rat, they come to eat on me!!! Leave me with welts and swollen bumps all over the place just because they have to eat. They are also my most hated pest, because either home or professional, they are the most expensive to get rid of. To call a professional exterminator to treat the entire home costs $500, and the home treatments that you can get are expensive as well. Plus you have to buy those over and over again, because there are re-treatments that have to be made, and trust me, one bottle of whatever you have gotten will not do it.

ohh i hate most of the household pet that i see inside the house sometimes. Im not so afraid or scared of cockroach or small lizzards but what i see spider in the house too ..i dont know how it got in here because we always keep the house clean. and im scared of worms too... but we do have one problem here in the house.the worst pet that we cannot really avoid here is ants.they are everywhere even when theres no food.we already put the killing chalk in places where they are but they arent afraid of it.do you have an idea how we can avoid this ants because they are the ones who dangerously bite also and its very painful.My husband is very affected with it ...can you give me advise what to do to eliminate them?

For me the most problematic house hold pest is my neighbours. They come to our house any time and just sit and talk about things that don't interest me and refuse to leave even when I try to indicate to them that it is getting late or I need to go out. Any idea how to get rid of these?

I hate, hate, hate cockroaches because they are so small they can get anywhere and they reproduce so fast that it's so hard to get rid of them. They also leave this stinky smell that reminds you they have owned you! Ugh! You end up living in terror, knowing that they could have gotten into your food and other containers! I am not scared of them but I know they are dirty and them contaminating the food can be a next ticket to the ER.
