The Devil's Bugs

Friday, April 01, 2016


There are certain bugs emoticon out there I consider the Devil's emoticon unlike the lady bug, butterfly, and June bug. emoticon the emoticon and emoticon They are some spiders, fleas, cockroaches, ants, and worst of all the bed bug cause they are the hardest to get rid of. emoticon emoticon The latter is what kept me up on Thursday night cause felt something crawling on my arm when had it out of the covers cause was too hot to completely cover up. Those pests had made a nest in the corner of the sheet behind my pillow and another on the other side behind my fiancé's. That caused me to throw away a fitted sheet and a zippered pillow case. Now will make me do so much unwanted house work when all I wanted to do this weekend was to take it easy and stay off my legs as much as possible. See devil's bugs emoticon that is what they are cause all they do it bite people and pets. Am so frustrated about this cause now we have to call someone to help get rid of them correctly money we really don't have. We thought we had gotten rid of them last year cause they were pretty much under control but now we know that they were just hiding and unseen. Just needed to get this off my chest so now I can hopefully get some sleep and have nice dreams.

My best friend reminded me of one more bug that consider a Devil's one the dreaded head lice. Only thing it's good for is causing someone's head to itch making you use a chemical to kill them and the eggs. Only way ever found that got rid of them completely is cutting your hair so short that you can easily pick them out and their eggs. I found this out the year when me and my fiancé came down with it cause a person living with us at the time passed it on to us both. That made me so angry emoticon cause that was also the year that I had spend close to a 100 dollars on a perm.

    Any time you contract head lice use baby oil, or the creamy baby oil and leave the head covered with a shower cap for 3 - 4 hours. Then rinse your hair after washing out the oil with apple cider vinegar, repeat as necessary. They didn't always have chemicals for lice. Use a fine comb to remove any and all nits in the hair. I recommend doing this over a white sheet of paper to see if you have removed them all. Repeat this in 7 days to make sure they are all dead. Wash and rinse all bedding in hot water. Spray down the mattress with lice killing spray, make sure it kills the eggs. Repeat as necessary.

    Keeping spiders out of the house. It is necessary to move the furniture around weekly when cleaning and dusting, spiders like to nest. If you do this they have no where to nest. I also put out roach proof (found in most Home Depot's or Lowes stores) in any dark space that is hard to reach, every 3 months. I raise up the couch and other furniture and spray under them weekly to keep out insects as I love out in the woods and on farm land.

    I hope this helps. emoticon
