A little fun at Valentine’s Day

A zoo in San Francisco has a weird way to say I Love You to spurned ex-someone’s – “Zoo offers creepy way to get even with exes

What about the feelings of the Hissing Cockroaches or Giant Scorpion?

OK so maybe they don’t have feelings, but if you get one (you can always send it to ProBest) send it my way.

I LOVE YOU, right….

I really like this idea, send in the cockroaches.

Backpack-toting can explore disaster areas

No more reason to send in humans or dogs, this idea is fine by me.

Does it get cold enough to kill pest/bugs?

Over the last few years it certainly hasn’t been cold enough in Arizona to freeze out the bugs. Some insects actually have a type of antifreeze or so called blood within their bodies. They crawl into a nook or hiding spot and if it is cold they just don’t come out. If it warms out they will come out and possible go in search of food.

  • If it rains and they get flooded they search for drier land, that might be your house.
  • If it is really hot, they might be more active and search for food.
  • If its cold for only a few days, that might not be enough to kill them, Especially scorpions or the hardier of the insects.

Filling in those cracks or holes around your home will help to keep them out and also keep the cool or warm in. Caulking is an excellent tool in keeping those bugs out – buy and use the clear caulk. It really works well.

Interesting morphing among insects, what actually happens?

Butterfly is half male and half female

“Gynandromorphism is most frequently noticed in bird and butterfly species where the two sexes have very different coloration. It can result from non-disjunction of sex chromosomes, an error that sometimes occurs during the division of chromosomes at a very early stage of development,”

 

Beware the venomous spiders, DANGER!

I’m not a big fan of spiders, so when I’m doing work around the outside of my house I always wears gloves. I suggest anytime you do work around the yard, attic, outside or in the garage wear gloves. It’s been a long time that a death has occurred in Arizona but you really don’t need the aggravation or pain of a bite. What do you look for with Black Widow Spiders?

  1. Irregular webbing, sticky.
  2. A spider hanging upside down.
  3. A Black spider with a red hour mark on its belly, or we have the Brown Widow and it has spots sometimes.
  4. They like dark and quiet areas.
