lioness, looks like you used all the tricks to try and keep the pesky insects away.

I wouldn't use anything plastic in the bottom of beds or pots but stick with something natural. I don't know what that might be for beds but for my pots, I just pick up a few small rocks or used pieces of broken terra-cotta pots. Never been a huge fan of Roundup and have used it very sparingly but this year I decided to try the vinegar, salt , dish soap mixture and am surprised at just how well it works.
I assume that you have had the presence of gallstones confirmed by test/scans. If that is correct, I'd go ahead with the surgery. I've had 2 ultrasounds in the past 2 years because of pain in the gallbladder area but both didn't show any stones. Like you, it's a problem that I could live with. I did decide to change my diet to be more like how I'd have to eat if I didn't have a gallbladder at all. I did learn a lot about gallbladder diseases by doing online research. Now after all this time, my digestive system seems to be working perfectly normal with no pain at all…..if I don't eat something that doesn't agree with it.
