About 3 months ago, my downstairs neighbors moved out. Since then, no one else has moved in. Not that I minded much, since the new people who moved in on the other end of the building have like 16 cars and there's never any parking here anyway.

Until a couple weeks ago.

My electric bill nearly doubling should have been the first clue, but I didn't think too much of it, since it has been awfully hot lately... But one day I noticed some large ants swarming all over the cat's food. The pest control guy was coming in a few days anyway, so when he came I told him about them, and I haven't seen them since. That was a month ago.

About 2 weeks ago, I started getting eaten alive by mosquitoes every time I came home. Within 30 minutes, I'd have around 15 bites on my forearms alone. It wasn't just bothering me, but the cat as well. So this evening, since my sister was taking the cat for a few days, since there's a cheap vet close to where she lives, I bought some flying-insect spray, and I sprayed the entire apartment. That was about 3 hours ago, and I have maybe one or two mosquito bites, but I can live with that.

Then a couple hours ago I was getting some more bites that were definitely NOT caused by mosquitoes... About 10 minutes ago I was able to confirm it -- fleas!

My conclusion? They've completely turned off the a/c downstairs (generally in the summer apartment complexes leave it on 80 in vacant units as a balance between saving energy and having the place smell funny when somebody finally does move in), and the fleas from the former tenants' dogs, and the mosquitoes that have been breeding in the toilet, have finally worked their way into my apartment.

They'll be getting a rather angry note with my rent check tomorrow, as well as a phone call.

And I'll be fumigating on Friday.
