That is incredibly gross I am hoping they were dead by the time they got to you....live ones are worse!!!

Unfortunately, they are a fact of life down here. They call the big ones palmetto bugs and those nasty buggers can fly! I used to freak out every time I saw one, now I just squish it and move on...the price you pay for sunshine and warm weather down here during wintertime up north.. But, I would think that someone would check that out before mailing out a box...geez.....

Do they get in the house ? I would not be able to live with them in the house. We moved from one of the rentals, just because I sow a water bug. They are big and ugly and when I see them, my body gets numb and I even trow up sometimes it would be big shock to me to find that monster in the box

On occasion you will see one in the house. We spray for bugs so it's usually not a problem....but after living down here over 20 years you realize they are part of the territory. Like suntan lotion and sand....NOT

I used to really freak out, too. The first one I ever saw I had to kill because hubby was out of town and kids were screaming.. used to give me a heart attack, but now, its like....oh...a cockroach...and I kill it.
But I do feel your pain. I REALLY hate spiders, and they grow those big down here, too.

OMG!!!! That's awful!!!!!!!!!!!!

You wouldn't think they would survive the trip. I am thinking whoever shipped the parts may have an infestation problem.... I have shipped many things out of Florida without that kind of problem.
