A few weeks ago in Everett, an article came out about an apartment with maggot infestation:

‘Nightmare’ infestation leaves Everett family in debt, battling landlord | HeraldNet.com

Here are some of the quotes from tenants about the problems they experienced:

It was “like death,” said (person), whose kids were 1½ and 3 years old at the time.

“There was dead maggots all over the floor. There was live maggots on the floor.”

The couple had to throw away their bed, kids’ cribs and many other belongings…… Of the financial burden, (person) said, “there’s no way I will ever be able to compute that.”

The couple filed a claim with their own insurance, but the policy didn’t cover infestations.

The couple’s 1-year-old son “wakes up screaming” because “he’s been in so many different places this past few weeks,” (Person) said at the end of September. The 3-year-old started talking less.

While this is an extreme example, it shows real-world emotions around pests such as maggots and fleas in recent weeks. In addition to the impact on adults and kids, maggots and fleas also impact one’s neighbors and even your own pets.
