Birds

I’m often amused at how people attempt to fix pest issues, but as you can see it usually doesn’t work. Chicken wires look terrible and plastic spikes don’t bend and usually turn brown. The birds often find way to nest in the plastic and again it looks bad, really bad. I really dislike pigeons, they poop in their nest and if a baby chick dies they build right on top and continue raising new chicks. Spend the money and hire a¬† Pest Management¬†Professional, it will look good and be done right. We usually have seen it all before and can make recommendations on the work. Also a quick note, don’t put rocks or brick up there they might work for a time but will fail.

Where did we get our big brains from?

 

There is new research that may indicate it was from hunting insects – “Insect diet may have resulted in humans big brains.”

The study provides support for an evolutionary theory that links the development of sensorimotor (SMI) skills, such as increased manual dexterity, tool use, and innovative problem solving, to the creative challenges of foraging for insects and other foods that are buried, embedded or otherwise hard to procure.

Do you know how bugs sneak into your home or business?

Given the space or lack thereof Рbugs will make their way into your home or business. Pests have adapted to us, just look at German Roaches they will use exploit our weaknesses and hitch a ride home to our kitchens or businesses.  Bed Bugs are very much the same, they will hide in luggage or shoes and boom they are in our house ready to feed off any family member they can find.

Home-sealing is by far the best way to keep out those pests. Caulking, door sweeps and fixing screens are an excellent way to keep pests out. IPM or Integrated Pest Management is the way to think when it comes to protecting your family.
