I've been trying really hard to relax and go to sleep. However, I can't. Every time I close my eyes I'm seeing a total house infestation, I'm seeing my children being stung, my dog, my husband....... I'm seeing those damn monsters EVERY WHERE. I can't go down the hallway, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, office, etc without turning on lights and checking to see if it's clear.
I did everything in my power to not be home today with my kids. McD's, park, in-laws house, etc.
My step dad came over, sprayed for the bugs (their food), cocked holes, irrigated holes, and completely covered our house entry ways and under every sink and all around the house foundation with that earth dirt stuff they use in pool filters. Something in that dirt basically dehydrates the scorpions and kills them almost instantly. Yet totally safe for humans, kids and pets.
He armed us with wasp spray because if you soak those suckers with the wasp spray, it effectively kills them.
I'm still not comfortable. I'm terrified to put my feet on the ground. :-(
I went out and bought wide mouth mason jars like poison control suggested and put them on the posts to all of our beds and sofa. :-(
I still feel so terrified!
Could it be PTSD, or what? Yes I plan to call my doc in the AM. I just want to go to sleep and can not. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
