We love crazy correspondence from landlords pretty much more than we love anything, so we're indebted to the tipster who passes along this email from a landlord to one of her tenant at a building in Tribeca. Seems the tenant complained about bugs in the apartment, and requested an exterminator. Reasonable, no? Here's the landlord's response:
I will use an exterminator but also what about this: I would get a bunch of Gecos and let them loose to eat all the bugs, leaving a sm plate of water on the floor in a dark corner cause they hide in case they don't find water. Gecos can be found on Houston St at John's pet shop, he keeps a glass tank of Gecos.Anyone found success with the Loose Gecko Gambit? Do let us know. Please.
