Oh, Oh the Simpson’s get Bed Bugs…
Video from Youtube:
As always if you encounter these pesky little bugs, call ProBest right away – don’t use bug bombs and don’t spread Diatomaceous Earth like its snowing within the home.
You never know where bug activity will spring up, I believe this is Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico
I love hanging out in New Mexico and of course you all know I love my bugs, so its wonderful when they just happen to be active and nearby. Carpenter ants are my nemesis and should not be dismissed as just another set of bugs. While not eating wood, they can damage it by making their home inside of it. I have run across these ants only one time so far in Phoenix and that is OK by me.
Do you know what’s going on here? Post Tension or not?
Honestly I have no idea, it is stamped with Post Tension but there appears to be an expansion joint visible in both garages. There is also evidence of termites coming up the expansion joint. So I’m guessing but I think its a combination of Post Tension and Floating Slab.
What do I do? Do I drill the slab or not? Well if you hear screaming coming from Arizona it’s me!
What do you know about the Gila Monster?
Gila monsters are found in the SouthWestern United States. The states include Arizona, California, New Mexico, Utah and Nevada. There are several deserts that span this region and these include the Mojave and Sonora. Gila monsters are lizards and are often called beaded lizards that prefer rocky areas & tend to avoid large, open areas. In these rocky areas they will find burrows & spend large amounts of their life in them. Living in a burrow helps them avoid the extreme heat during the daytime & the cold night. They will eat whatever they can when they can in an effort to store up fat for when it is harder to get food. These lizards just like snakes need to be left alone and relocated if possible.
This little piece of artwork is on exhibit at the Chandler Environmental Education Center. Check the schedule calendar on the left side of blog for dates for the Bug Zoo – 3 – 6 year olds.
Messy pigeons and birds
I understand that we build our homes out of wood right on top of the termites and that we design houses without thinking about pests. Sometimes I wish more would think about creating perfect habitats which can cause us pains and aggravations.
There are fixes to these issues but sometimes they look messy no matter what you do, there are some products that can be used like repellents which can be hidden. You can be a Do It Yourselfer but think about the after pictures and will it look professional and nice.
As always you can always call ProBest Pest Management for advice – 480-831-9328 or 623-414-0176
