When I lived in Savannah I had to tolerate Palmetto Bugs... gigantic cockroachy things that sneak in your house no matter how diligent you are about cleaning, no matter how much money you had, no matter where you lived. They were just there and you had to live with it (or do like me, get a dog whose greatest pleasure was killing them).
Here in Maryland we have Sprickets a/k/a Camel Crickets. I realize they are just weird looking crickets, but I was told they were part spider and that was enough for me.
They live in your house and there is nothing NOTHING that you can do about it. I was also told they bite, which makes it even creepier.
BUGS ARE TAKING OVER! And cats. Cats are taking over too. I think I shall go hide in my bedroom now.
