These damn pincher bugs are everywhere! This morning in the shower I drown 3 of them and was severely grossed out.

I know that they are attracted to cool, damp places b/c they love moisture...

Any suggestions on how to kill these mother effers? I was thinking about getting some indoor bug spray and then going on a long car ride to let the house defunkify.

BTW, I just LOVE that pretty much anything you're looking for can be found on the web by typing "www.<thing I want>.com". I mean, "getridofthings.com"? Priceless!

Reminds me when I was working in the yard years ago and when I was done for the day I took my gloves off and set them down in the shade on a tree stump and the next morning when I put them on I got one hell of a surprise!!! I felt something poke my fingers and when I pulled the glove off there were some latched onto my finger tips....nasty bugs!!!

Moral of the story....ALWAYS check your gloves...lol

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine and his baseball mitt. Only, this was Texas and in his case, it was fire ants! His hand swole up like a balloon!

I find the bottom of my shoe is pretty effective for killing them

Get some stuff called Suspend SC, kills EVERYTHING for up to 3 months. I got mine from epestsolutions.com. The guys there are super nice too. Send them an email with your problem and they will hook you up.
For example, I had a large wasp nest some where in my attic but I wasnt sure exactly where it was and I didnt want to go in there looking for it. I sent them an email about it and they recomended these bug bombs. $3 bucks a bomb and they did one hell of a job. It killed everything lurking around in the attic.

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"
