Bugs Really Bug Me

Updated on May 22, 2011

We Find A Surprise We Didn't Expect

I was trying to get things done

Then as I got undressed I found what I thought was a cut on my leg

Like Gomer Pyle use to say "Surprise Surprise Surprise"

There was a tick on my leg

It grossed me out

To know something was on my body and I never even knew it

As I took it off in wonder

Would you believe it fell from my finger tips

Now it was bad enough finding a tick

But loosing it again was even worse

So I began that frantic search

Within minutes the search was over and the little culprit was caught again

It is that time of year and for all those who live near the woods

Check yourself over good

You don't want any unfriendly hitchhikers along for the ride

It is amazing how uncomfortable you feel

So in the shower I went

I think I thought I could scrub any germs away

On the bright side it didn't borrow into my skin

It must of came in on me some how

The only problem is it was early in the morning and I was just getting up from a good nights sleep

That means it must of came in on me yesterday

I wonder where has it been since

I really have very little tolerance for any kind of bugs

I am glad I don't live in Arizona or Nevada where the bugs can be so much worse

So once in a blue moon the craziest things do happen

We learn to live with them and get on with our day

I am sending this creepy crawly message to those who live far away

      That was funny. Cockroaches were my biggest horror when we lived off the coast of West Africa. Even mosquitos paled into insignificance if l encountered a flying cockroach., Aaaaaah!

      Lucky Cats after hearing all that I think the only time I will see SE Kansas is in pictures in your beautiful hubs.I have little worries compared to the fleet of bugs that live near you.Our winter kills everything in the grass dead until the following year.Eiddwen It is amazing how those little bugs can cause such big nightmares.Thank goodness for all those sprays that kill the bad bugs and keep us safe.Charlu Those darn spiders.I am once again so lucky to not have them.I think frogs are the good guys.They eat all the bugs.I tried the plug ins and I still had bugs in the house.I don't know why?I seen them advertised and in stores all the time.The war on bugs continues We have a Mosquito Magnet that is suppose to kill flying bugs up to an acre.It works good but it cost $25.00 a month between the lure and the propane.But worth it if it kills those flying nasty bugs.I use the house bug sprays to keep the bugs out.Thanx everyone for help keeping the bugs out of our lives.

      Eewwww and yuck. Although I've been there and the only thing worse for me is a spider bite. I was bitten by a brown recuse spider once and didn't realize it until the damage already started. In Florida we get all the bugs roaches, ants, frogs, spiders, fleas, ticks, horse flies (big as butterflies and they hurt) wasps, bees, etc. and my favorite love bugs Double Yuck I can't stand those things. Thank goodness for my plug ins which keeps most of them out of the house. OK that's enough about bugs for me. Great hub though and a good reminder to check yourself for bites and bugs and make sure to watch them when you do get bit

I live in SE Kansas out in the prairie land where there are ticks, mosquitos, chiggars, biting "horse" flies, ticks, mosquitos, huge flying helicopter looking things that love to dive bomb!, oh, and, did I mention: chiggars...and more!!! It is chemical warefare at all times or else sudden and permanent scarring. Itching! Burning! Stinging!
