When Ray from Sawyer Pest Control came to assess our cockroach problem, he told me an interesting story. He said he had recently encountered a similar infestation in a home that was brand new, before the owners had even moved in! Turns out they got cockroach eggs imported in a brand new stove from Lowe’s.
Guess where I just bought a stove 6 weeks ago! 🙁
Ray just finished his work two hours ago and he said there were more roaches in the stove than anyplace else in the house. I asked him to document this on his invoice, and I’ll also take some (disgusting) pictures of this when we get home to clean the massacre up (after the poisons dry).
I’ve googled it, but I can’t find any evidence of a Lowe’s-cockroach outbreak. I’m trying to think of anything else suspicious that came into the house in June or July. Anyone heard of anything like this? Is there anything I can legally do to Lowe’s if I can prove they’re at fault?
