Hi all, So I moved from the city( San Francisco) to the mountians and so I do not know what to do and I HATE bugs!!! they freak me out!!!! We went for a walk yesterday and later last night while our dog was sleeping on top of our bed I noticed something on his ear. It was a TICK!!!! yuck!!!!! Anyways my boyfriend picked 5 Ticks off the dog and we were both totally grossed out. I took a small comb and searched the dog again. I thought we got them all. Well this morning I was reaching for my laptop on the floor next to the bed and guess what I saw???? Yes, A tick on the carpet!!!!! I picked it up and threw it in the toilet. I looked around the carpet and found 1 more. I then looked at the dog who is on my bed again and there was a big Tick in his belly. Freaking out!!! I got it out! :cry: I'm going to the vet today to get this tick collar for the dog, but I'm totally freaked right now about the house. The dog is an inside dog and was all over the house lastnight b4 we saw the ticks. What should I do???? I guess I'm going to have to strip down our bed and wash everything but what about the carpet???? I think people up her think I'm a freak b/c they are used to this stuff but I'm not. Also do I need to take the dog to the groomers to get bathed? I asked the vet and they said just use the collar and leave the dog outside and if any more ticks are on him they will fall off. Oh this is all so gross. Now I'm afraid there are Ticks in my hair and I have long dark hair. Also there was the BIGGEST spider yesterday on our wall when we got home. Even my dear sweet, tough, manly, boyfriend was freaked out!!!! I have called Clark pest control and thank god they are coming out today!!!! I will love them forever!!!! I'm totally scared to go downstairs now where the spider was. This house seems to have a lot of bugs. We are even now thinking of moving. I am totally scared of bugs and spiders the most. They make me cry. I just don't know what to do. I love the country but I swear I like my concrete jungle. Thanks.
