Pesty situation, literally!

So, as discussed in my last post,

Ryan is coming home, from New Orleans... the south. They grow bugs big down there and couple that with the way college kids/guys keep house...
I am a bit nervous about any "extra" stowaways hidden in his luggage/stuff. 

Especially since the last time I was speaking on the phone with him I heard him say, "Wow! that was a big One!" 
( substitute an expletive for Wow and you will understand my concern.)

My only strategy, as of now, is to make him leave everything in the garage and then wash and air it all out. Any other suggestions?

Yes...leave in the garage and set off a "bomb" - to kill "un-invited guests"... I'd be "freekin" too...
Southern Bugs.... EW!!!

In the garage, but not too close to any cracks where they can scurry and hide--ewwww.

How about making him dump it all in the front yard in a big bucket of soap then hose it all off? ;)

(By the way..we had our state LAX championship yesterday and today...the vendors were making a killing! One told me he waits all year for this weekend, it is his best one of the year...wish you had been there :)

Watch out! Female roaches carry eggs on their backs. If you get just ONE roach in your home - it could turn into a disaster. Is everything in bags? Throw away any cardboard boxes. AND call an exterminator! Make sure they use something called "growth regulator" with their chemicals!

ps. growth regulator sterilizes the female so they cannot reproduce.

Tami- Thanks for the advice, I should have called you right away!
