Remember last week on the 18th July Arizona termites – sneaky and they will get in

Once termites find their way in they will continue to seek out cellulose and if they find it in a painting they will attack and eat. So if you notice anything unusual on a wall or painting please check it out. Sometimes those hidden areas can surprise you.

Insects make nests in unusual places.

Sorry for the blurriness of the picture put it is a fire alarm sprinkler head and a Mud Dauber wasp has decided to create a nest in the head itself. We decided to alert maintenance because I didn’t want the alarm triggering.

 

What is the weirdest place you have seen a nests?

Again with the spiders…

 

It is bad enough that I really hate spiders but “Scientists find a fish-eating spiders around the world“. (Thanks to Todd for sharing the article). Its actually somewhat cool when you think about it, some spiders make diving bells with air and many live on the water surface just waiting to catch small prey. So why not eat what you can catch?

The bug world is a complex little mini version of ours and inhabited by some unique OK maybe strange critters. I’m sure you have seen pictures of the scary ones but did you ever notice the colorful and intense characteristics of a few of them. How about the art involved in making a web? So don’t just panic the next time you spot one outside ponder for a minute the beauty and don’t stomp it to death – they eat other bugs.  Another critter out for my business….

Sometimes nature just re-imagines itself..

So every once in awhile you come across something unique. This wreath was nice as it was but then this dove decided to add a little touch of class by building  a nest right on top.The only problem was the lack of hygiene by Mama bird and the poo on the welcome mat.

So a little upgrade to an existing wreath, looks fine to me. Have you seen anything like this?

 

 

Shedding another process of growing…

I never named my Tarantula and I have had her for about 5 years now, she sheds every 6 months or so and frequently goes on field trips with me. She is on exhibit at our office and while the kids do like looking at her the other critters usually get a better look.

We do have tarantulas out here in the desert and often the males will be seen wondering about in search of a mate, females for the most part tend to stay near their burrows.
