Why am I seeing mosquitoes in Arizona?

 

I have noticed lately especially after the rains that we have had numerous calls about flying biting mosquitoes. With all the monsoon rains, a lot of the things that hold water have had the chance to really set things in motion for the issues with biting pests.

Water can accumulate in any container that can hold water, fountains that aren’t working and any indention in the ground. So again I will mention surveying your property monthly or at the very least when the rains occur.

Remember the 3 things that most living things need:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Water

Some mosquitoes are well suited for inhabiting local areas but some can travel up to mile just to feed. So tip over those devices that can hold water, don’t forget saucers for planters.

A great idea to prevent pests

Stored product pest include such pests as Beetle, Moths and Weevils. Another pests that deserves a distinction of menace also includes rodents like mice and rats. I really like the idea of using glass bottles to store products away from the pests that might try to get to them. You get the benefit of reducing pests and you can see what the product is.

Just another great idea that incorporates IPM or Integrated Pest Management.

How about some new facts about Honeybees?

 

A recent article from Entomology Today – “Honey Bee hive population of 4,000 triggers rearing of male reproductives“.

A team of experts from the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University, led by Michael Smith, studied what starts the reproductive cycle of honey bee colonies. The results are published in the journal Naturwissenschaften.

I recently found the Twitter site – @Uberfacts and on FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/UberFacts

 

They listed a few facts that are amazing  – There are 14 billion insects for every human on Earth. That equals 980,000,000,000,000,000,000 total on the planet. So if you are concerned about a few how about calling ProBest Pest Management 480-831-9328
