I never heard that it smells nice here. Maybe it's because I'm used to it. How does it smell?

In addition to pine needles, it smells like whatever is in bloom at the moment. I remember when I lived there during 03-04 that there was a time when everything everywhere smelled like honeysuckle, then other times it would smell like dogwood... I definitely remember the wonderful smells in the air while I lived there!

I have honeysuckle, jasmine and gardenias around my place. When they are all blooming at once, it's almost surreal.

If I could find scented candles with that aroma combination, I would be in heaven!

Another thing I've noticed about ATL area: not many minivans. Where I'm from, it is minivan-city.

I still can't smell it. Must be my allergies

They found some American roach poop in the attic and they found evidence of some silverfish and some spiders. I was told that their findings were perfectly normal and what one could expect for the area. The inspector said that the roaches get into the attic and poop there and die.

Detest isn't a strong enough word for what I feel about bugs. I really wanted to escape the cold weather of up north, and when I did my research online, I came to the conclusion that Georgia was about as far south as I could potentially stand bug-wise. Florida is off the chain with its bugs and snakes. After a full year here, I should know whether or not I can handle Georgia bug levels. I hope I can deal with it, 'cause I think otherwise I'm going to be really happy here. Nice people, great weather, lots to do, easy day trips to other states, etc.
I have a good friend from Rochester who pointed out that there are fewer bugs in cooler temps. I also have a good friend in Miami who has added iguanas to the list of common vermin - now, that just want won't do. I'm not afraid of lizards but if you could see what her back yard looks like sometimes then you'd understand it's totally unacceptable.

Good luck with you and your exterminator. It's better to have one than not so as long as he gets the job done then that's all that really counts.
