Sorry to hear about your dilemma! Being from N.C., I've had them several times over. They are quiet the nuisance. This is what I do; I wash with hot water and soap then after I dry off I use the RAID. That's right RAID. The one in the purple can for pets. I figured if it wouldn't hurt Fidoe it wouldn't hurt me. It did get rid of the pest and gave me some relief. "Haw, knock 'im out John".
I sprayed it on the itchy parts (legs/ankles) and then in my hand and rubbed in places I probably shouldn't have (private
) and went to work. Bout 10:30 "things" got mighty hot. Thought I was going to have to drag my arse across the carpet like Fidoe does! Gets hotter than Bengay!
I talked with my buddy who gave me the remedy and after he got through crying with laughter said "you were supposed to wash it off after 20-30 minutes, then go to work!" I called it the Apache treatment....burn 'em out. Good luck. JohnnyK.
