Lady bugs have been very numerous in the East the last few years also. And stink bugs.

Many bugs are attracted to lights at night, just like moths. So leaving a light on isa good idea if it draws them into a trap. They make sticky glue fly strips you can hang from a ceiling also. Maybe a light and a few of the glue strips would do the trick. For fleas they say to put out a pan of water with some beer and a little dish soap in it and a light above. They jump in the water and drown. The soap keeps the water surface tension low so they sink.

What's the beer do?

good news, I might have gotten the wasp. I had the door open to the hallway and it landed in the jam and i slammed the door. I'll go check in a bit if i got it or not (hope so), but yay!

Still have one beetle bug thing, but i'd take that any day over a wasp.

It's all about the strategy! Hope you get a break from the bug bashing soon.

What's the beer do?

Beer helps attract the fleas. Probably anything sweet or fragrant would work. Or even a nice bowl of red hot blood would work great, since that's what they eat. Yes, that's right, they eat blood! Purfect for Halloween! Thousands of little blood eaters swarming around the place. All of them attracted to your night time reading light. Eww.

So, the wasp is back. Somehow, the towel i placed under the edge of my entryway got moved.

Gues who got woke up by buzzing? <_<

After being chased around for a while, I remembered something.

Up in montana, we would make these homemade bee traps. You take a disposable water bottle, cut it in two, invert it, staple it, and put something like a sweet liquid inside of it (didn't have soda, so i used honey water).

So, now i wait. Hopefully, it kills the bugger. They can fly in, but not back out and eventually die in there.

Success! I have eliminated the wasp officially this time. It was flying around my kitchen and i was able to grab my lysol spray. Sprayed it, ticked it off but its flying wasn't the best, it tryed to climb on my fan and fell, thats when i swooped in with the spray and a shoe. :D

Glad you finally got the little bugger! Another thing that works well with flying foes is hairspray. Glues their little wings and drops them quickly.

    • So here's my adderall report.... I take it in the am, after my other melds and coffee. It's the XR version so it lasts all day for me, but the most helpful part is the first 4 hours. It takes a little while to kick in, and then I notice a calming effect. I'm usually very anxious so this is nice. I notice I'm more positive, and feel actually pretty happy, although I've got some major things pressing down on me I feel like I can think about them straight and get them taken care of, instead of panicking. I'm not starving all the time like I usually am. I felt hungry since I started taking my thyroid med and am worried I started gaining a bit of weight due to eating more. Now I don't feel like I need to eat between meals. I'm back to making every bite count towards nutrition. I've been better at taking care of more adult type duties. I'm happy to say that it's been a very good experience so far and I don't feel like I'm taking so much that I get a high from it. A decade or more ago I took double the dose I'm at now and I can tell you I was feeling that super happy high when it first kicked in, and although it felt great, it scared me as that is so on the path to some major addiction issues, you know? I can tell you that the current dose makes me feel like I did in my 20's, and I was pretty kick a$$ then, lol!
    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
