I was in the bush for ten days last week

got bites on the ass
and all over my feet

open sores developed ............ had chills and the sweats for a day then felt better.

A lot of rain - spiders every where ........ I sprayed so much bug killer I may have polluted the area for a decade.

Those are about 5 days old and are well on the way to healing - should have seen them when they were fresh -- ugly indeed.

old farmers trick to keep spiders away 50/50 mixture of turpintine and water in a bug sprayer spray the foundation and if you can spray along the roof line and around windows just be carefull might kill plants and remove paint ,also make sure noone in the house is allergic to turpintine.

About 9pm it broke and i felt a LOT better. 1 am the sweats started and i woke up to a soaking wet mattress. <yes i am sure it was sweat>

This morning i feel pretty good. hopefully that was the worst. this shit SUCKS!



Glad to hear it is breaking up .................... damn bugs

Man you think spiders are bad, I got bit by a bunch of damn fire ants on the leg last week while mowing my lawn. You think the dumb ants would learn that the mower is coming around once a week and it going right over their stupid hill, but no they don't get it do they?

Those things itched so bad and swelled up fairly large and looked almost just like the spider bite pics you posted cy. I think I'm going to have to find something to get rid of the ants with. Hmmmmmm.....tannerite maybe?

hose the mound with water.
then pour about a pint of unleaded gas on the mound (don't light it)
wait an hour and check the mound. the area around the will be coated with dead fire ants.
hit the yard with amdro
