Answer: Sow your seeds of arugula and cilantro in earliest fall, while the ground is still warm but the air temps have dropped (not to freezing, mind you). You can even try a spring crop, next year, if you think you have 60 days of temps under 80 after your last frost. I'm not a therapist, so I can't help you with your phobia but there is another alternative besides killing the little sap suckers . Try a plastic owl or snake in the vine, or tie up some brightly colored flags (strips of cloth) that will flap in the breeze.
