Whose coming to your picnic?
So you spend all day planning this picnic, you spend all day making sandwiches and all that goes with it – you don’t want pests showing up uninvited. So what can you except in the way of pests?
Ants – well we all know what happens when you spill some food, the ants come marching in to steal your picnic food.
Bees, wasps and hornets – one lone bee or wasp finds the source of the food and they go back home to tell everyone else.
Flies – nothing more disgusting than flies, trust me on this one.
Before you replace the floor, treat for termites. (Yesterdays answer on picture – magnified picture of wasp nest….)
So you decide its time to replace that old flooring in your home and as you take up the old floor you discover damage and concrete cracks. Now is the time to call your termite experts because and trust me on this one you don’t want to put down the floor and then discover you need it treated. This will destroy or at the very least make the new flooring look terrible. Here is some damage from termites and some water damage, I don’t know which came first but my guess is the termites.
Nothing worse in my mind than having to drill grout lines in stone tile, because no matter how good you are it will never look as good as new. So please take a moment and think it through, treat the concrete and then lay the new floor. It will save you money in the long run and more importantly the aggravation of knowing where those drill holes are. Because your mind will focus on those marks, trust me.
A Battle to the Death, who shall win?
Thanks to Bryan for passing this along, its not often that you get to witness a fight to the death, who shall win – take a guess (comment) and then watch the pictures.
300 million years old fossil (just for the record I wasn’t around then) Jerry from www.pestcemetery.com was around then I think, you might want to ask him.
Some type of flying insect (mayfly) probably stayed in the mud long enough to leave the impression.

Thanks to National Geographic for these great articles.
