The National Forest Service shuts down a National Forest in Northern New Mexico and this little mouse also lives in the White Mountains of Arizona. “Forest Lands closed to protect Mouse”
Critical areas include portions of the Apache Sitgreaves National Forests in both New Mexico and Arizona.
The first thing I noticed beside the number of pigeons was all the mess on the garage door. I was sure what was going on but they were pretty content just hanging out in this community. What can you do to keep the population of pigeons down in your neighborhood?
- Obviously #1 would be not to feed or encourage them.
- Keep nesting sites unavailable to them, this would include hardware cloth and spikes if necessary.
- Stationary owls don’t work, they become accustom to the devices.
- Poisoning is not the answer. I’ve heard of people throwing mothballs into their nesting areas, this could be extremely dangerous to other critters and children.
Yep it’s termites, not surprising to anyone in the business. If there is a crack in the foundation slab then it is probable that you might get termites breaching the slab. That slab crack serves at a gateway right into your home and very little except termiticide will stop them for good. I suggest Termidor HE,
State-of-the-art molecular technology dramatically improves the transport of the Termidor HE Copack active ingredient into the soil creating an Enhanced Protection Zone.
It utilizes an advanced nonrepellent, or “undetectable,” liquid technology that termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid.
Well the heat is finally going away and the cooler weather is right around the corner. Thank goodness – I’m not sure it was the heat or that humidity but whatever I’m thankful it is getting cooler.
Termites continue to pop up around the valley and if the weather doesn’t get real cold the pests will continue. So now would be a great time to tackle those little chores around the house to prevent pests from getting in. What can you do?
- Home seal.
- Check sheds or other structures.
- Repair window screens or door screens.
- Install door thresholds or sweeps.
- Install garage door seals.
- Trim trees away from home.
- Repair drip or flood irrigation systems.
Damn BedBugs, they are sneaky and will hide in any hole or crevice. Click on the picture and see if you can find the bedbugs in the hole. What should you look for if you think you have an infestation:
- Red or black spots on bedding material.
- Adult Bedbugs are the size of a apple seed, babies are much smaller and see through.
- Smell of iron (result of blood).
- Don’t just look at the bed check the cracked paint, wallpaper, any crevices in wood or holes in computer desk.
If you’re not sure, don’t waste time. The longer you wait the faster the problem can get out of hand. Check the following site http://www.pestworld.org for more information.
