Bad Omens in New Home??

To explain the paranoia some if it is helpful:
It is like I am hyper-vigilant about my hair touching me being an ant crawling on me, or one falling onto me while I sleep, or that there are more in my sheets (one got into my pants and managed to bite my butt when I rolled over!). Now I'm having a hard time calming down enough to feel "safe enough" to relax in my room.
Lol...more likely you have an ant colony under or close to the the foundation...and finding their way into the house same as the mice...it's nice and warm in the house after all...the wasps the same...hive some where...where there's a hole say under the eaves or a hole in the siding...there's no omen...once the holes are plugged...the ant hill found and destroyed...just pour hot water down the hole...and keep an eye on the wasp situaion...those are the only things I have a phobia for...lol....it should be ok...lol...everone gets those kinds of problems...my cats take care of my own mouse problems...lol
For me, I wouldn't call any of these problems bad omens. They're all natural occurrences in a home. I wouldn't feel badly for having to call the landlord either, you have every right as a tenant to live in a pest free home. You just had three pest problems in a row, it's enough to freak out anyone!
We have to spray our foundation every spring for the ants, (the little tiny ones). There's always some type of wasp nest or some other type of bee infestation around our property. I send hubby out to take care of those and my cats take care of the field mice in the house. Now those things I can't stand!
Meanwhile, good on you for getting yourself out of that abusive living situation!
One's nervous system is in hyperdrive after such a move, and things take a while to settle down, so be gentle with yourself in every way for as long as it takes.
(I once had a plague of slugs in the bathroom the night after a house move... freaked me right out. It was like a horror movie... They just went away. It was so weird!)
My favourite calming place is the bathtub. Stake your claim to wherever yours is, and take yourself there often; it's your house now! And if you freak out again, be nice to yourself and know it will pass, and that the problem will be solvable, in time, with some help.
(Ants don't like lemon oil, or lemons? I guess, or eucalyptus oil, from memory. I can't remember what I do when they decide to march into my kitchen once every three or four years, so I have to google it each time. Think it involved cottonwool balls and lemon oil!)
Lol...freaked me out when I was bitten by a spider that found it's way into my bed...ewe....bought a brand new matress and was talked into buying a used box spring...to save money and recycle...won't ever do THAT again...turned out the box spring had bed bugs...I ran out and bought a steamer so fast and steamed the crap out of my brand new matress and threw out the box spring that I spent money on...so your not the only one who doesn't like to find insects in your bed....lol...took me awhile to get over that one....I still get the heebie jeebies...lol
