I would have given my first cats hyde if I could have caught a mouse or rat a year ago on "anything". we tried the glue strips, no such luck.

now about the words not meaning the same, my hairdresser friend from London used to say, "Knock me up would ya" meaning to call me up..............

I haven't read all the responses so I don't know if this has come up yet, but we encountered chiggers when I was young and we were on vacation in the south. The treatment the "locals" used was Fels Naptha soap. Its not always easy to find, but it does work very well. You just wet it and rub it over the affected area. It killed the chiggers and was also soothing to the area as far as the itching was concerned.

I thank you for this.

I do think our idea of moving to Tennessee is out the window now, we just can't get over the bugs living on us, in our bed, in our car, on our clothes, etc. I felt something on my skin yesterday, took it off, laid it on a white sheet of paper to see if it had 'legs'. very scary, but no, it was a hardened tiny little ball of thread. Still, I think we're done here.
