    Cockroaches of course. "Tenacious" makes me think of squid, octopi, and barnacles. In this context, I think you mean "insidious." Poison them, and they will die, but more will be back even before you have forgotten about them. Leeches can be quite tenacious.

      I do mean tenacious - as in determined.  They amaze me.  I almost feel bad for poisoning the little sugar ants that KEEP returning.  They disappear for about 2-3 days, and then, they come back!

    A Jack Russell Terrier? Dachshund? Some other kind of terrier?

    None that I know of.  I have some huge black ants wandering in my kitchen right now that are resisting everything!  I may just turn the place over to them.

    Cockroaches and rats (wild) can be very difficult to get rid of as well, plus the cockroach can survive an atomic bomb. Fortunately I have never experienced any of those infestations, though we are currently dealing with an invasion of small black ants- even after having an exterminator treat our house.

    Termites and bedbugs! Termites are terrible destroyers.  Bedbugs are holiday blood-suckers especially if they share your hotel bed with you.

      Thankfully, I have not had to deal with these two pests.  We have a termite bond on our home and receive annual prevention treatment. I've heard bedbugs are difficult to eliminate.

    The cockroach is the most tenacious creature on earth. It has been on earth since the time of the dinosaurs. It can eat anything and can nibble at plastic too. Also it can survive in very extreme climates and go without food for very long times.
