Pest control is a harrowing business. While many common insects are relatively simple to control, there are far more pests that can pose an imminent danger to pest control professionals. We scoured the internet for some of the most chilling, laughable and downright outrageous pest control stories we could find. Here are a few of our faves:
From Reddit user swearinjoe – “…Worked in crawlspace renovation (mold removal) and I found a wasp nest over five feet high and just as wide. It was like a swarm from a movie – millions of wasps. The interior of the building was so well sealed only a few had made it inside, (but) did I mention this monstrosity was under a retirement home?”
From Reddit user outrider567 – “The TV show Infestation once had a 20 story stand alone building in Ottawa Canada that had like millions of roaches, the apartment building was fully occupied with tenants but some tenants refused to let the exterminators in because their live and let live attitude extended to the roaches”
From Reddit user obsessedwithhippos – “I had an old buddy from school called me up one time and asked if I would help him move. I didn’t know what to expect but when I went in, the place was a wreck. The mess I didn’t mind, but the bugs were horrible. Anything you moved and at least 50 roaches would come running out. We loaded the UHaul up and stopped at a store and I got a bug bomb and threw it in the back of the truck. Finally, I head home that night and after vigorously shaking off all my clothes before getting in my truck I called my wife and had her meet me outside with a towel and a trash bag. Got naked in the driveway and promptly threw out the clothes.”
