Sometimes they just won’t move and the second part of the battle begins. May I suggest a tube of PIGNX, designed to get on their feet and they won’t like it much.
I think of it similar to when we get Super Glue on our fingers, that stuff won’t come off and it is very annoying. Isn’t it?
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?
Laurel Hansen Ph. D. is an Instructor in Biology from Spokane Falls Community College and is in my opinion one of the USA top research experts on Carpenter ants or probably ants in general. Some new words from this last weeks PestWorld conference in Phoenix, AZ.
Polygyne – many Queens or describing a hive or colony (social insects) that has more than one active queen.
Polydomus – many homes or living in more than one nest, as certain ant colonies.
She presented a very instructional PowerPoint on Tramp Ants – a diverse group of invasive ant species which have become established widely across the globe. As we travel, move or just transport certain things across the country we may accidentally transport certain bugs or other stuff into an Eco-system which might not do to well with a new species. One of those species has created some real problems in various places in the U.S. like the Crazy ants or Rasberry crazy ants
Africanized honeybees have become the dominant type of honey bee for beekeeping in Central America and in tropical areas of South America due to them outcompeting the European subspecies, and there are claims that they have improved productivity.
Tends to swarm more frequently and go farther than other types of honey bees. The swarm above was very limited maybe 50 bees.
Defends its nest agressively, very defensive. May sence a threat from 50 – 100 feet away from nest.
Respond more quickly to a threat, sending more bees if necessary – more bees = the more stings. May chase up to 1/4 mile or more.
Will move nest if food becomes scarce.
