Alright guys, i've discovered and killed the second wasp in my room (with dawn dish soap no less). Those bloody bugs keep crawling under my door. All sweet things like honey have been stashed in the fridge.

Do you think i could tape some cardboard on the bottom of my front door, enough to keep them out? I looked around at king soopers when i was there last and found nothing that could help.

I also sent an email to housing telling them about this madness.

You have masking or duct tape? You could hang it at the bottom of the door, sticky side hanging lower than door. If they tried to get in, they would stick. You could use a double sided tape or tape in a circle (like you put on the back of a poster to hang up) & put it on the floor under the door, too.

Or try a rolled up bath towel.

Does housing pay your heating bill? If so you might email them to suggest they install a gasket on the bottom of your door or threshold which will keep bugs out and save energy :)

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

I've been doing the towel, but i can't do anything with it when i leave as it moves. I did however find some double sticky side tape and some cardboard and taped it at the bottom of the door so its flush with the floor. It opens and closes more slowly.. but if it works...

Yeah, they do. I used their email this time. I know for a fact that the head of housing often answers the emails.... so maybe this'll get them to do something about it?

I would have sent an emailing discussing the wasps I had found, then stated that I was allergic to wasps and demanded to know what precautions they would be taking to get me to the ER if I were stung.....

maybe. Oh well (I swell really bad at the sight, it has yet become bad enough for epi pens apperently), I'ma get a can of hairspray next time i go to the store. Probably something cheap to make it easier to kill them, as lysol ticks them off.

I got myself into another delima... lets just say never leave dishsoap on something thats going in the dishwasher to be ran. Don't do it!

There was one family who we have not heard from since before the storm and we could not reach all day. So I put out an all call on Facebook to track them down and someone saw it and called someone else who drove out to their house and found them stuck with out power or food! Now they have dinner and are safe! Yay! Internet+Smart phones rock at a time like this! *insert snoopy dancing here*

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!
