If i spray insect repellent, will wasps stay away from me?
So im a lifeguard and at my pool there is a wasps nest in the girls locker room, and the tower that is farthest from the girl locker room always has like 5 wasps flying around... so do you think maybe there is another nest in the trees that are around the pool or are those wasp from the girls locker room? well anyways, im deathly afraid of wasps, mostly cuz i had a traumatizing experience when i was little, and one of the lifeguards is also allergic so for both of us its especially difficult to pay attention to the pool, and do our job when there are wasps flying around and landing on our tower... so i bought some OFF deep woods insect repellent, and im planning to spray it on the umbrella on tower, and on the tower chair itself, and myself.... do you think that will keep the wasps away?????? if not what should i do? ? ?? im going crazy with the wasps i dont know how much longer i can sit there and not fall into the pool from freaking out

Very small black bugs (insects) on kitchen floor and countertop?
I have a problem with very small black bugs at first thought they were mouse turds but they are a little smaller than that on my counter top near window seal and sink in my kitchen plus on top of hot water heater and on floor near hot water heater. I clean them up everyday but the next day there will be more and they seem to be dead. Before someone even says it, my kitchen and house is kept very clean which is another reason this is driving me nuts. I was told to look for open for as they might be some kind of wheat beetle but I have went through all of my cabinets and everything with no luck finding the source or where they are coming from.Any ideas on what these are? Treatments?
