What do you know about daddy-long-leg spiders?
- Remember the story about Daddy-Long-legs being extremely venomous. For true daddy-long-legs, the opilionids, the myth is certainly false, and for the daddy-long-legs spiders it is certainly not based on known facts. I found a site that has all the facts UCR Spider Site.
- In fact, the Daddy Longlegs is not technically a spider, although it is an arachnid.
They are among the most widely found spiders in any household.
- Most spiders mate by use of pedipalps but this one has a penis, which makes it different from spiders.
Though they prefer to live in damp climates, they can survive in deserts as well.
- Commonly known as cellar spiders or harvestman.
I love this little place Cave Creek, its mainly one road but it is action packed with some unique places. From the Horny Toad to the Buffalo Chip Saloon and many places with shopping for one and all. There are so many places to see it would take all day, so plan a day trip and enjoy the
Try the fried chicken at the Horny Toad oh and by the way check out the El Encanto Mexican Restaurant (they have a pond in the middle of the place with ducks and turtles) – these are the few I’ve tried so far but all have been right up there with some great food and drink.
Subterranean termites going up a small electrical wiring on the side of a home. I’m always amazed at how much they will go through to gain access into a structure. This is the time of the year to be on the lookout for termites here in Arizona.
Termites use these tunnels to gain access into your home both as a defense against ants and a way to keep moisture within their bodies. These tubes are often the first sign that you have termites.
You’ve seen those hoarder shows and you know the reason why your home or business shouldn’t be cluttered. But why do people collect or let their homes become a cluttered mess? There are many factors in that equation but let’s just talk about those conducive conditions that let pest occupy or inhabit our homes or lives.
- Holes or opening in walls – patch those holes
- Picking up fruit from ground or better yet donate it a charity
- Eliminate water sources
- Don’t allow dog or pet food to set around
- Clean trash can or dumpsters
- Trim weeds
- Don’t allow trees or bushes to touch the home or business
- Install or make sure screens are in place
Do you know of any others?
From almost the dawn of man, rodents and bugs have been trying to stay close to us. Why you ask, I think the main reason is that we tend to want to stay dry and we collect things like food. Animals, bugs and us want the same things:
So when we moved into caves, they followed. When we moved into houses, they followed. So as we became smarter so did they. Bed Bugs probably were Bat Bugs to begin with, they moved into caves because we did. When we moved into houses they followed.
With that movement came pest control, OK a version of it somewhat. When early man found Bat Bugs they might have thought of moving or washing the antelope skin they were sleeping on. Da da pest control, we might never really know who was the first to step on a bug but Pest Control it is!
