Kings of Pain tv show, you have got to watch this show. These two guys inflect pain upon themselves and then rate the pain on 3 levels – intensity, duration and damage 1 -10. They expand on the work of Justin O. Smith 1-4 with his pain scale. Now just so you know, I’m a wimp when it comes to pain. I think by now you should realize that men are babies, I can be a home sick and continue to moan as if there was someone home to hear me.
So I hear about these stings, I have been stung a few times by bees or hornets but nothing serious. Now I’m not downplaying the issues some people have with one sting but apparently I can get through several.
Now look at the stinger on this Tarantula Hawk, wowzers. This menacing bug ambushes tarantulas, lays an egg on it after stinging it and paralyzing it and the baby grows up on tarantula meat. This flying little bugs rarely mess with us, but if you provoke them watch out for that stinger. So give the Kings of Pain a look and see what you think?
Cockroaches can be real scary if they are in your home. Do you know some can actually fly or at least glide somewhat. If the one in your home is this BIG, you need to call ProBest right away 480-831-9328 or 623-414-0176.
OK they ever get that big, well maybe in prehistoric time but not anymore. By the way if they were that big a show wouldn’t do it and they would be easier to find and get rid of. By the way, I’m kidding but if you have German Cockroaches you really need us. The longer you put it off the more they breed and reproduce. How about a few facts?
One female can can produce thousands in just one year.
They tend to gather together after birth.
Egg cases are not susceptible to insecticides.
German Roaches can and do change their normal behavior.
Roaches along with Bed bugs are the nattiest of bugs, except for flies in my book. Flies fly and then vomit on your food, they can be in your back yard and fly in and land right on that beautiful steak. Yuuuuck. But anyway back to roaches, everyone thinks they have the silver bullet. In my professional opinion it is a combination of protocols and knowledge is what it takes to combat these invaders. Any house, yes I said any house can get them, clean to dirty it doesn’t matter. They like to hang in box lids, touching top and bottom of their bodies and make their way into your home.
So some advice.
Check boxes before putting them in cupboards.
If it is pasta or rice, freeze box then place in sealable containers.
Even dog/cat food can have pests, check it out.
At the first sign of cockroaches/roaches call a Professional. 480-831-9328
Roaches hide so once inside, they will go the far away hidden areas. Don’t install those motels in the bottom cabinets, that isn’t where they are going to be.
What’s the best time to KILL mosquitoes, when they’re in the water phase? Any other time you are swatting them and they’re out for blood. Mosquitoes can be tricky, some are known to be in your area and others may fly in from over a mile away. I have seen mosquitoes in tires and in beer bottles with only 1/2 inch of water present. We all know what an absolute nuisance they can be.
There are some innovative products available including this one from www.in2care.org and I also recommend Flyweb for inside the house.
Monsoon rain & dust will start soon and we all know what that will bring? Termites and more bugs including more mosquitoes and flies. It’s time to store your outdoor equipment before the winds grab it. Check your windows for gaps and repair, keeps the Monsoon rain & dust out. What should you do, now to avoid the mess. Remember the Boy Scout motto “Be Prepared”.
Check your yard for containers that may hold water.
Fill in potholes that may hold water.
Double check drip irrigation and flood irrigation for issues.
Repair screens, make sure they are in place.
Check door sweeps and gaskets.
Remember stagnant water is the enemy, flowing water good.
Best time to treat for mosquitoes is when they are in the water.
It’s the time of year, Monsoon is on its way and water in any crack or crevice imaginable. Guess what, the mosquito Mom’s will lay eggs anywhere there is water? Water grates, catch basins or cisterns will hold water longer since they are deeper.
When is the best time to attack those littler biters, IN THE WATER, of course? Captive audience, when they’re flying it’s to late.
So what do you do?
No freestanding water on you’re property, if it’s stagnant it can cause issue.
If you are in charge of a HOA, check water grates and storm drains. Things can be done to prevent mosquitoes from using those.
I’ve seen them in beer bottles along a roadside, so get rid of trash and no tires.
Mosquitoes cause disease from Malaria to Equine encephalitis.
Repair or replace window screens.
Keep doors shut and repair door sweeps and door seals.
Even gutters can hold a small amount of water, I know what’s a gutter in AZ. But I have seen some, so make sure they are free and clear.
GAS REALLY STINKS for property managers,
facility engineers, Realtors and business owners because it:
Bad smells = lost revenue from failed home sales, new leases and lease renewals
Smells Bad = lost revenue due to bad social media reviews from customers
Bad smells = lost revenue from time wasted fielding complaints by staff and customers alike
Irritates mucousa of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs,
Irritated mucosal membranes = Lost revenue from absenteeism and presentism due to infirm staff with headaches, eye irritation, sneezing, coughing and general malaise
Corroded metal = malfunctioning smoke alarms and fire panels
Metals Corrode = Reduces lifespans for electronics like computers and televisions
Corroded metal = displeasing aesthetics for building finishes and contents
Build-up of combustible gasses can lead to fires and explosions and the associated loss of life and property.
Smells like the additive to natural gas,
Methyl mercaptan from sewers in the living space = false claims of a natural gas leak, unnecessary building evacuations and eventually a “cry wolf” culture, where people will not take an actual natural gas leak seriously.
Means there’s unrestricted access for sewer critters,
Dry traps = unhindered access to the living space for cockroaches, sewer flies, etc.
Simple dry plumbing
traps are the #1 cause of sewer gas infiltration.
