Gone with the Windshield

 My buddy Jerry from www.pestcemetery,com did an article a while  back on Identifying Bugs that people bring in and it reminded me of the Readers Digest article by Dan Reynolds on “Know your Insects at 65 mph”. I saw this comic in Reader’s Digest (unknown date) and thought of the many times someone would bring in a bug squished beyond any recognizable shape and would want me the “Bug Expert” to tell them what it was.

10 Most Alien-Like Insects on Earth..

Read the entire story here: Check out the pictures

A common mistake when searching for alien life forms is to look up into the sky for something big. But alien life is right here, at our feet, in our backyards. Millions of tiny but frightening aliens, many just a few millimetres long. We’ve convinced the most cheerful of the lot to give us a tour…

Useless knowledge again.. Our ongoing effort for Trivia – Pests

  1. During World War II, the free-tailed bat caves near San Antonio were guarded closely as part of top-secret Operation X-ray. The U.S. military attempted to train the bats to carry small incendiary bombs and release them in Japanese buildings. During one test, bat bomb carriers escaped and set fire to barracks and a general’s car. The project was later scrapped.
  2. Ten thousand insects are required to feed a single toad during the course of a typical summer.
  3. Cockroaches have quite a capacity for survival. If the head of one is removed carefully, so as to prevent it from bleeding to death, the cockroach can survive for several weeks. When it dies, it is from starvation.
  4. The hardiest and most deadly of all the world’s insects is the mosquito. It has been found in the coldest regions of northern Canada and Siberia, and can live quite comfortably at the North Pole. It is equally at home in equatorial jungles.
  5. Ten thousand insects are required to feed a single toad during the course of a typical summer.
  6. The common housefly is faster—in one sense—than a jet airplane. The fly moves 300 times its body length in one second, while the jet, at the speed of sound, travels 100 times its body length in one second.
  7. Slime molds are 1/2 fungus and 1/2 bacteria. They live on the floor of South American rain forests and slither around like animals in search of food while, like a plant, they scatter spores that will become more slime molds.
  8. A bumblebee uses 22 muscles to sting, but it does not die when it stings—it can sting again and again. In bumblebee hives, the entire colony, except for the queen, dies at the end of each summer. The intense fear of bees is called apiphobia.
  9. It is difficult to drown an ant because water doesn’t penetrate their minuscule breathing tube; the ants will suffer, however, from too much carbon dioxide, which knocks them out. It takes a while, but they will eventually die.
  10. Bat droppings in caves support whole ecosystems of unique organisms, including bacteria useful in detoxifying wastes, improving detergents, and producing gasohol and antibiotics
