I moved into an apartment in June 2009 and I started having obsessive thoughts about cockroaches. To make myself clear, I've never seen a real, live cockroach and I've never seen one in my apartment either. I have been having severe anxiety over this, to the point where I will not sleep with my lights off or leave dishes in the sink or garbage in the garbage can. To make it even more clear, I've never even seen a spider in my apartment. To add to my anxiety, my landlord put gel in all the apartments in order to kill off bugs on Wednesday (specifically cockroaches) and now I'm really freaking out. My parents are coming on the weekend to use caulking on all the nooks and crannies in my apartment; this is what other family members have done when they lived in buildings where other people were having cockroach issues and they never got them. I am to the point where I want to break my lease and move even though I've never seen a bug! What are other ways besides the gel and caulking to keep them out? If anyone has any advice please help me. I would look stuff up online myself, but I can't even stand to look at pictures of the bastards.

I've been using peppermint essential oil like you would a smelling salt, and that does give me temporary relief, but only...
