There are billions of ‘em — those blood sucking parasites that feed on your cats and dogs and you, too, if all else fails. The female of the species routinely consumes 15 times her body weight in blood (the flea’s favorite meal) every day. This very high protein diet enables her to lay about 25 eggs every 24 hours or so, or between 600 and 800 eggs in her lifetime.
Fleas are amazing little critters. They can jump seven or eight inches up in the air, and jump more than a foot horizontally. Fleas don’t eat only when they are hungry. In fact, they are absolute gluttons, and will continue to bite its host until they can’t eat any more. There is a reason they do this and it is critical to the survival of a flea’s life cycle. Here’s how it works.
If you see a flock of fleas on your ...

Can I just plug up the hole and suffocate them?
If the entrance hole is plugged, the bees will look for another exit. They may find another crack or opening or they could follow light and enter your living quarters instead through gaps in baseboard, electrical outlets, or vents. However, if you do succeed in trapping the bees in the wall, expect to have a stench from the hive in the wall, and it is very probable that honey will seep out of the structure.
Will the bee’s just leave on there own if I don’t do anything about it?
No, if left alone the bees will just continue working, building more and more honey and laying more and more eggs. Eventually, your beehive can grow to be hundreds of pounds and up to forty thousand bees...

A Little Info On Roach Treatments to help Eliminate Infestations | Part 2
If it is low, then cockroaches have abundant food sources and they will not be feeding on any type of baits. While this doesn’t happen often, it does occur and other steps should be taken to eliminate the infestation before switching to baits. For example, we want to use a traditional pest elimination approach using directed contact applications of very mild and low toxicity material applied with an applicator designed to inject these materials deeply into cracks, crevices and voids were the roaches like to hide. A micro-injector or an Actisol unit can perform this task...

Bed Bugs do not have wings and don’t fly, they do not migrate outdoors, and they do not just show up in our homes.

A Little Info On Roach Treatments to help Eliminate Infestations
In the home:
Evaluate housekeeping and repair issues as they arise. A good treatment isn’t just about the application; it’s also about identifying and correcting sanitation and repair problems. Inspection of each account carefully is required. Sanitation is more important when using baits, because baits lose their effectiveness when they have to compete with the food scraps, grease, sugars, etc., that are available because of poor housekeeping. In addition, holes in walls, broken tiles, open cracks, leaks and drips, cardboard boxes and other clutter make cockroach control difficult, no matter how effective the tools we use. Also check to see whether cockroaches are being reintroduced in the account.
The cockroaches may cros...
