    diffusing eucalyptus and lavender oil
    nothing seems to offer a permanent solution
    i am overwhelmed by information its all too much to process
    i pray anyway but i'm desperately praying
    i am utterly overwhelmed

    I'm sorry

    It's rough.

    I've read the oils don't do much. Did the exterminator find where they were living outside of the chair? If you list what they did there are some great people in the forum that can tell you if it's enough/standard.

    Make sure your talking to someone be it a counselor or a good friend who won't judge.

    diffusing eucalyptus and lavender oil

    If you're doing that with the goal of repelling them, it's a bad idea. You don't want to repel them, you want to kill them. Repellents will just make them hide in harder to find locations.

    What's your PCO doing for treatment?

    I'm DIY like you. From reading this blog and other things from universities and the EPA I couldn't find any evidence those things did much.
