Blessed Are The Antihistamines, For They Shall Relieve Us From Our Allergies

Ouch!

I’ve added a new pest/allergy to my list. I was sitting by the open window in the fancy music room when ZAP! I noticed I was being attacked by bugs. Little, tiny brown bugs, about 1/3 the size of a flea, crawling around the window sill. Ewww!

I did some web crawling (very appropriately) and discovered they are probably clover mites. Makes sense, with all of the clover we have in our yard. And they are so tiny, I think the attic fan is just sucking them in through the window screens.

Country living strikes, so time to strike back. Grabbed my bottle of fly spray (for the ponies, with a lovely citrus-y scent) and went to work. Those little bugs aren’t crawling any more! Yea chemicals!

I hate that creepy, crawly feeling you get after you see fleas or ticks, or in this case clover mites. I’ve been itching and scratching all afternoon. After I spotted the lovely rash on my face and arms caused by the micro-bites, I took a quick shower and some antihistamines. That should put an end to the itch.

June bugs and moths I can handle. You just scoop them up and toss them outside. Guess I’ll have Dear Hubby get his giant spray gun out and attack the house with insect spray again. I ain’t gonna let no pests keep me from having my house open to the fresh air.

Until next time..
