    should i toss it? seriously disgusted right now, no idea where they came from. the chair was sitting by a sliding glass door, which i've had open the last few days, as it's been hot. FWIW i live in a 2 year old building on the 10th floor. there aren't any grubby people in the building (the smallest units sell for 450k, the bigger ones for well into the millions.)

    i freaked out, vacuumed every crevice of my place (its now 4:58 in the morning, i've been at it the last 4 hours) and put the chair in the garbage area, locked to a recycle bin. anyway, as i understand it - and according to google - they can lay eggs inside furniture, which leads me to believe my chair is fucked and i need to get the place fumigated.

    Cockroaches are going to be everywhere regardless of how much money you spent on your place. It's just a part of living. I would keep the chair or I'll pay to have it sent to me:)

    So someone found a couple of roaches in their chair....and it's OMG!!!!! game over man! GAME OVER!!!!

    Just put them down the toilet or something.

    BTW you'll have to burn everything now.

    OP FYI the average cockroach doesn't really care about real-estate values, they're not fussy.

    not OCD, well.., but did purchase the chair recently, and used, hence the concern.

    Did you get the apt free with your welfare check? It would appear one grubby peasant lives in the building, I hope they evict you by defenestration.
