Subject: RE: BS: Natural Insect Repellents
I came home yesterday to 5 in the livingroom. That was just 1 day. I have only been in the apartment since Fall so I don't know what is normal, but I did find them regularly (1 or 2 at a time) all winter.
The size, shape and color vary (it's Maine so I don't suspect any of them are dangerous) and they mostly hang out in the corners, though once in awhile they get bolder.
My cats have no interest whatever in chasing or eating them. They are also up too high for me to reach to squash reasonably. I also have a fairly significant phobia. This is a house built in 1895 and split at some point into 3 apartments. As far as I'm concerned, they can go hang out with my neighbors, I just don't want them in my living space.
