I live in the woods and have never even seen a tick up here before that I can remember. For some reason though, since it warmed up, I have now found three--and what is worse is they were not full grown I don't think. Two of them, I have actually found crawling on my shirt and the third was under a rug in the living room. I'm so freaked! I keep checking my head and my cat and so far (fingers crossed), I can't find anything.
I can't do a bug bomb for several reasons. I need to know where they are coming from. My house is small and really cluttered because it's small and I have so much stuff. Little by little I have been trying to clean up to see if I can find where they are coming from. But so far, nothing.
Does anyone know about them or have experience with them? I don't know how they breed. Should I be looking for some sort of nest? I should probalby just look it up on the web but I am so freaked right now, I am afraid I will type tick into google and get lots of pictures of them. My nerves can't take it!
I'm feeling really queasy right now too because I got stung by the strangest looking wasp-thingy tonight. It got me twice in my right breast! The doc says one actually looks like a bite and the other a sting but they can't figure out what the insect is that bit me. I'm so glad I managed to get the little bugger into a jar!
Then I come home from the doc and am brushing my teeth to go to bed and there is a tick on my sleeve of my shirt. I can't hardly stand this and am really afraid for my health and the health of my cat.
What should I do?
