Words cannot describe some of these shows…

Entertainment is entertainment! Not so, you say! Well how about entertainment is in the eye of the beholder? Some of these shows just border on absurd and I realize that the show must be entertaining but really!

I guess what amazes me the most is that people are willing to go on television and spread their dirty laundry in public. I just couldn’t do it, not for any price – sorry. Shows like “Strange Addiction“, “Addicted“, “Hoarders“, “Billy the Exterminator“, “Call of the Wildman” and “Honey Boo Boo” concern me and prove to me either that people are willing to do anything for money or just don’t care what people may be thinking about them. To me these shows are reminiscent of “Jerry Springer” genre and only prove that we will demoralize our culture to absurd-om.

In my opinion these shows are not entertaining, these shows are ridiculing and mean spirited to the so called stars.. I prefer to watch shows that are informative and educational rather than shows that debase their stars…

Come on – what say you? Comments… (by the way I was called by two of the shows in this genre and chose not to participate).

Pest Control – bed bugs, scorpions,black widow spiders, rattlesnakes – we have it all

Pest Control –¬† bed bugs, scorpions,black widow spiders, rattlesnakes – we have it all!

 

I know I have probably said this before but I love my job, every day is new and exciting and you never know from one day to the next what you will be doing. A typical day in the life of Dr. Bug may consist of inspections for bedbugs, termites and wildlife issues.

  • Today for example I started out investigating the root cause of where the termites were entering the building, this is a unique example of building construction allowing gaps and possible entry points for termites into that structure. This coming week I’ll have a chance to look at the problem via the roof and use a brand-new termiticide called Termidor dry. Typically when treating for subterranean termites it is essential to get the material into the ground where they live, this product allows for the introduction of a dry formula into tubes and galleries with the potential for distribution into the colony.
  • I have been working with Channel 3 for a bedbug story and we finally have located a family deserving of some special care, stay tuned for an update from both Channel 3 and progress on some bedbug work.
  • The next stop was another bedbug dilemma, I really feel bad because in most cases the family or person who has the bedbugs wasn’t the one who brought them into their home. The problem with bedbug work is that it is time-consuming and labor extensive.
  • I may get two e-mails from people supplying me with pictures of various bugs, or I may get several calls asking for my opinion about various pest situations. it may be spiders on a tower, or what type of spider is in my home. It’s all in the day of the Dr. Bug.

Now my everyday may not be as exciting as “Billy the Exterminator” or that guy from “Call of the wild” but I’m dealing with everyday people with everyday lives with everyday problems and trying to solve them one day at a time in an efficient manner to the benefit of that customer. So all I can tell you is stay tuned because everyday isn’t boring in the life of the bug guy.
