I moved into my new apartment October of 2007. Since I moved in during the fall season, I never thought anything of having a marsh literally located within 30 feet of the back of my apartment. Now that it'* spring, there are crickets out and dear lord let me tell you that they are LOUD at night. I kid you not if I walk out my back door onto the patio they're just about deafening. Really hurts the ears. I totally looked over that when moving into an apartment with "protected wetlands" directly behind it.
Ear plugs anyone? haha.
The sad thing is that I'm watching TV when I filmed that. If you turn it up you can hear it in the background. It'* at 1/4 volume, and only about five feet behind me facing TOWARD me. Can barely hear it huh? LOL. I've also gotta get orkin out here because I have ants coming up between the wall and carpet behind my computer desk. I have no idea where they're coming from, but I see probably one scurrying across my desk every half hour or so. Pretty annoying.
