A couple were sued after four children were found in an & # 39; unlivable & # 39; house with thousands of cockroaches and hundreds of spiders.
Eugene Bergener, 50, and Moranda Young, 32, were arrested after the authorities found the plague that, according to police, was the worst they had ever seen, KIVITV reported.
Officers carried out a welfare check when they first performed a & # 39; very sharp & # 39; odor from the property in Nampa, Idaho.
Inside they claim & # 39; thousands of cockroaches & # 39; having seen officers' heads, crawling over couches and feeling the floors up to the ceilings in some rooms.
Cobwebs were found in & # 39; every corner and wall & # 39; of the house, which they estimate could contain hundreds of spiders that feasted on the insects.

The couple lived in 400 blocks from North Bailey Ave, in Nampa, Idaho, where the police claim to have found thousands of cockroaches and hundreds of spiders
The four girls between one and 13 years old were housed temporarily. Their relationship with the couple has not been revealed.
Officer Matt Richardson said: “In my many years of law enforcement experience, I have never seen a house (contaminated).
& # 39; The house is unlivable for children, let alone for everyone. & # 39;
Officers found cockroaches crawling over grain and dirty dishes, KIVITV reported, and one table was stacked up to six feet high with items.
They claimed they saw dirty laundry stacked two feet high in a bathtub and about 100 cigarette butts on a table.
The smell of urine in the building, which the couple shared with pets, was so strong that it burned the nose of one of the officers & # 39;
The insect plague was initially noticed by officers after they looked in through the window of the house and saw them crawl on the benches.
Once within 400 blocks of North Bailey Avenue they were shocked at what they found.
Richardson said: & # 39; The number of cockroaches in the house must be in the thousands and possibly hundreds of spiders in the house, partying on the cockroaches.
& # 39; In a corner of the living room there were cockroaches from floor to ceiling and cobwebs.
& While officer Burgoyne and I were standing in the house, cockroaches fell on our heads. & # 39;

The couple revealed that Young (left) and the three youngest children shared a bed, while the oldest girl, 13, slept on the floor with the insects. Bergener (right) claimed that he slept on a sofa in the building
The girls, who are one, three, four and thirteen years old, are being cared for by the Health and Welfare Department of Idaho, KIVITV reported.
After interrogation, it was reportedly revealed that Young shared the bed with the three youngest children, and meanwhile the eldest & # 39; slept on the floor with the roaches & # 39 ;.
It is claimed that Bergener told the researchers that he slept on the couch.
Young said the landlord had attempted to bomb the site in an effort to reduce the contamination, KIVITV wrote.
Since their arrest, the couple have each been charged with four violations of a child.
They both argued not guilty of the graves and are booked in Canyon County Jail.
Bergener is scheduled for a pre-trial conference on September 16 and Young & # 39; s is scheduled for October 28.
She has also been instructed not to have contact with the children.
