These are the kinds of bugs you may see around San Antonio this summer – San Antonio Express-News

Posted: May 28, 2020 at 1:45 am

Mosquitoes, cockroaches and black widows, oh my!

A Lone Star summer usually means creepy crawlies will make an appearance like a bug called a chigger, which can leave humans with red, itchy bites.

While Texas has its share of bugs year-round, the high heats will start to drive a lot of bugs indoors searching for a cool place just like humans. And the summer months is when most bugs thrive, giving them a chance to breed or feed.

But, there are plenty of ways to keep yourself and your home bug-free without expensive extermination costs. Many times, simple acts such as cutting off their food and water supply will do the trick.

Scroll down to see some of the bugs you should watch out for this summer and how you can keep bug-free.

Twitter wants to target conservatives — with none of a publisher’s responsibilities – New York Post

Posted: at 1:45 am

If Twitter is going to fact check the leader of the Free World, with a hard leftist as part of the team doing so, then it should be treated as the publisher that it is with all the liabilities that entails.

On Tuesday, Twitter appended a fact-check label to a presidential tweet about the fraud risk associated with mail-in voting. The exclamation urged users to get the facts about mail-in ballots.

The link took users to a CNN story with the headline: Trump makes unsubstantiated claim that mail-in ballots will lead to voter fraud. It was the kind of opinion-masquerading-as-reportage that CNN, and too many other mainstream outlets, specialize in. Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud, the story tsk-tskd the experts apparently having forgotten the debacle of thousands of lost, missing and uncounted mail-in ballots reported by The New York Times last month.

Just in case CNNs experts-say pabulum wasnt enough to convince you that Orange Man Bad, Twitter also curated a number of tweets from the blue-check Twitterati slamming the president, with one even hysterically accusing Trump of planning voter suppression.

None of this comes as a surprise to conservatives on Twitter. For years, Twitter has censored conservative voices, increasingly without even bothering with the pretense of platform neutrality. This is the same firm that suspended actor and right-wing firebrand James Woods for tweeting a blurred, and publicly available, photo of Andrew Gillum, the failed Florida gubernatorial candidate, appearing to be high. Meanwhile, Twitter has consistently refused to suspend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan even after the left-wing darling compared Jews to termites.

And now we know why: A key actor in Twitters censorship operation turns out to be Yoel Roth, a fellow with an ideology so hard left it would scare Nation magazines editorial board and blessed with a Silicon Valley sinecure (head of site integrity) that allows him to decisively slant the national conversation on the Web.

It was Roth who along with a co-worker introduced Twitters new fact-checking policy. In serving the public conversation, the pair wrote a couple of weeks ago, our goal is to make it easy to find credible information on Twitter and to limit the spread of potentially harmful and misleading content (read: conservative ideas).

Starting today, Roth and his comrade went on, were introducing new labels and warning messages that will provide additional context and information on some Tweets containing disputed or misleading information related to COVID-19. But apparently the fact-checking now extends far beyond the pandemic, to include countering the opinions of the commander in chief with left-wing opinion, er, expertise.

Roth also happens to be a rabid hater of Trump and the 63 million Americans who voted for him.

Im just saying, he tweeted in November 2016, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason.

In January 2017: Today on Meet the Press, were speaking with Joseph Goebbels about the first 100 days. . .what I hear when [Trump aide] Kellyanne [Conway] is on a news show.

In July 2017: How does a personality-free bag of farts like [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell actually win elections?

And so on. But it turns out Twitter is playing with fire. Lawmakers could call for revoking the companys legal immunity under an obscure federal law that allows Big Tech companies to eat their cake and have it, too, acting as censors, editors and publishers while incurring none of the liability.

Heres the deal: If I publish libelous claims in The Post, my victims can hold The Post liable in court. But Twitter is immune to such suits under the 1996 Communications Decency Act. Section 230 of the law provides that no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.

But note the underlying assumption: that online bulletin boards and thats what Twitter is, a glorified bulletin board dont act as publishers. But by policing conservatives and fact-checking the Republican president of the United States, Twitter is acting exactly like a publisher. So why should one class of publishers, such as The Post, be held liable, while another gets to escape liability merely because its editors are hard-left California geeks?

Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri had the right idea last year, when he introduced legislation that would remove Section 230 immunity from tech companies unless they could prove that their algorithms and content-removal practices are politically neutral. Amen.

Meanwhile, as of this writing, Twitter had yet to fact-check Mayor Bill de Blasios tweet encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives and get out on the town despite coronavirus. Countless accusations of Russian collusion remain. What a joke.

DOST-FPRDI studies the use of heat to treat wood and bamboo – Philippine Canadian Inquirer

Posted: at 1:45 am

Researchers have studied the effect of thermal modification (TM) on the strength of giant bamboo using spent engine oil as medium. Initial findings showed that TM made the bamboo more stable less prone to swelling and shrinking. However, higher heat also made the material darker. (Supplied photo)

Around the world, people in these modern times have always relied on synthetic chemicals to treat wood. Many of these chemicals, however, are known to be toxic and can cause serious health problems and can harm the environment, if not used properly.

Researchers at the Los Baos-based Forest Products Research and Development Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-FPRDI) are currently looking into a process called thermal modification or TM as a more ecofriendly way of protecting wood and bamboo from insect pests and fungi.

According to DOST-FPRDI Assistant Scientist Juanito P. Jimenez, Thermal modification uses high heat to change the kind of chemicals present in a piece of wood. With the right amount of heat and time of exposure, the right chemical changes take place. These usually make the wood more durable as it becomes more stable [more weather-proof, less prone to swelling and shrinking] and less appetizing to termites.

The downside of TM is that extremely high heat can affect the strength of the material and give it a darker color. The trick, according to Jimenez, is to find the right mix of temperature and treatment time that will not cause much change in wood or bamboo strength.

TM is already being used in Europe, the US and Canada, as well as some Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia and Indonesia, and its about time we check how we can apply it in the Philippines, says Jimenez who is currently verifying the gluing and finishing traits of thermally modified bamboo in a project funded by the DOST-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD).

He and his team have also recently finished determining the physical and mechanical properties of three thermally modified bamboo species using spent engine oil as medium and they got promising results.

According to Jimenez, he is excited about the possible applications of TM in the countrys wood-based sector.

Although this is already a mature technology in some countries, the process needs to be studied locally since our small and medium enterprises cant afford to buy imported TM equipment from say, Finland. And even if we can buy equipment from them, we would still need to check how various wood/ bamboo species respond to the procedure. Just like in kiln-drying, since each species is unique, we need to develop the right heat treatment protocol for each one, he explains.

Right now, Jimenez says, the technology seems ideal for wood and bamboo meant for furniture and architectural moldings. The use of toxic chemical preservatives is usually not preferred for these products and they need the dimensional stability which the TM process can give.

How to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants Before the Damage Is Done – Yahoo Lifestyle

Posted: at 7:49 pm

From Country Living

Though there are over 12,000 known species of ants, you can ultimately divide them into two categories: annoying but harmless and seriously destructive. In the warmer months, your indoor and outdoor spaces can end up hosting critters in both categories, and you may be desperate to find out how to get rid of ants. There are the impromptu cities of tiny pavement ants that pop up on your paths, driveway, and sidewalk (harmless but the opposite of curb appeal).

There are also the little black sugar ants that magically make their way into your home to find that one minuscule crumb you dropped on the floor (relatively harmless, though they can carry bacteria). Then, there are the large carpenter ants who have picked up the summer job of destroying your home from the inside out. Not goodand they also bite. If you're wondering how to get rid of carpenter ants, here's everything you need to know.

Carpenter ants have gotten their name because of the way they damage the wood that makes up your home and furniture. While they don't consume wood the way termites do, they chew and excrete it in order to make pathways for themselves and their thousands of friends and family. If you start seeing random piles of particles that look like wood shavings, that's a sign you have carpenter ants. (Fun fact: Insect experts call that stuff "frass.")

You can identify a carpenter ant from other types by their size. They are big: About 1/2" to 5/8". Carpenter ants also are usually red-black, or all-red, all-black, or all-brown.

Carpenter ants love wet and/or moldy wood, so if there is a moisture issue in any part of your home, they'll be attracted to those areas. However, carpenter ants don't always get into your home by chewing their way through wood. They can enter your home through any crack or tiny opening, even if it is high above the ground (carpenter ants will simply use a branch or climb up pipes and wires to get there).

Indoors, carpenter ants usually like to set up their homes near water sources. The areas near air-conditioning units, dishwashers, sinks, and bathtubs are all popular places for carpenter ants.

It's not as easy as killing any ant you happen to see. Like all ants, carpenter ant colonies start with scout ants that forage your home for the best places to eat or hang out. Then, their buddies (the "workers") follow the trail once they've hit a good food source, building a nest nearby in your wall. If you've spotted a few stray carpenters, congrats, you've probably found these little explorers. Here's what to do next:

Make a bait to find the nest. Pest experts advise setting out a bait for the ant to take back to the nest, so you can actually find the nest just by watching them. They're attracted to sweets, so a little bit of jam or jelly can work. You can also mix equal parts sugar and baking soda, then place the mixture in a shallow dish. The sugar attracts the ants, but the baking soda will kill them naturally.

Eliminate scent trails. Carpenter ants rely on pheromone trails to find food sources and to travel. By cleaning surfaces where ants have traveled, you've destroyed this treasure map to your home. You can use essential oils like tea tree, lemon, orange, or cedarwood on a cotton ball to wipe down surfaces to interrupt these trails. Or, make a solution of one part dish soap to two parts water and pour into a spray bottle. (You can also use this to kill ants, after you've found their nest.) You could also use a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water.

Destroy the nest. Once you've found the nest by following ants, by spotting "frass" near a wall, or can detect a faint rustling sound in the wall, you'll need to get into the wall to destroy it. Terminix recommends drilling 1/8" holes every six inches in the area where you suspect the nest might be. Then, use a bulb duster to "puff" boric acid through the holes. (The boric acid will kill the ants.) You might have to repeat treatments multiple times in order to destroy the nest.

If this sounds like more work or more of a mess than you're willing to make, then call in a professional. Even if you successfully get rid of the carpenter ant nest, there still might be more in your home. Call an exterminator to check that the nest is destroyed and to look for possible other nests. You should also call a pro if you haven't been able to find the nest, but still see carpenter ants.

JP McHale Offers COVID-19 Protection and Seasonal Pest Control Services for Long Islanders; ViroClean COVID-19 Disinfecting-Sanitizing and SMART Remote Rodent Detection

Most Long Islanders are eager to get back to work and resume their normal daily activities as the COVID-19 outbreak shows signs of slowing. However, without a vaccine and with still so much unknown about this easily transmitted virus, there remains a pervasive fear of getting sick and a need for solutions to fight off the coronavirus.

Our residential clients have been asking us how they can protect themselves and their families at home, and our business clients have been expressing deep concerns about the health and reassurance of their employees and customers. As restrictions loosen, weve been working with our residential and commercial clients to deliver services that can best protect all against risk, says Jim McHale, president of JP McHale Pest Management, located on Long Island, serving homes and businesses throughout the New York region for over 50 years. JP McHale is an Anticimex company, which serves more than three million customers worldwide.

Eliminate COVID-19 and other Viruses: ViroClean Disinfecting JP McHale Pest Management is now offering ViroClean Disinfecting Service, designed to kill COVID-19 and other viruses on inanimate environmental surfaces such as floors, walls, structures, ventilation, and other equipment. This powerful new disinfecting misting procedure can sanitize large areas in short periods of time, achieving maximum effectiveness and minimal downtime. ViroClean disinfecting services include biofogging and hard surface wipe-down for heavily contacted surfaces and high traffic areas. Various options for frequency of treatment, phased treatment and afterhours availability are available. All ViroClean materials have been approved by the EPA as effective for viral elimination.

Current CDC guidelines for reopening address issues, such as physical distancing, protective equipment, cleaning and hygiene, employee screening, and communications planning. Most people are seeking additional ways to protect their families and businesses and ease concerns as they plan for their future lives and the new normal. Were here to help our residential and business clients navigate through these uncertain times in any way that we can by offering the most progressive, scientifically-tested and proven treatments and solutions, says Jim McHale.

Mice Seek Shelter in Empty Offices/Restaurants and Homes Filled with Food

McHale reports that mice and rats have emerged as a particular issue for offices and restaurants that have been empty for a while, as well as for homes with families quarantining together with well-stocked food supplies.

The company offers the SMART remote rodent detection and elimination system. SMART devices use heat and motion sensors to track activity and catch rodents without the use of toxic baits. Each type of device is engineered to prevent infiltrations with around-the-clock monitoring and control.

Mice will inevitably begin to populate inside since the traditional rodent feeding areas (garbage containers) have been cut off, McHale said. Empty buildings become a welcome haven for rodents who prefer to run in dark spaces, free of vibrations. They become more aggressive in their pursuit for food.

McHale reports that with SMART, there is no need for a pest control company to even enter your home or business during the detection phase and extra precautionary measures are taken for any rodent removal needed. The SMART devices speak to each other via the built-in cellular network technology -- without using cameras to send critical information regarding activity and catches to a central data hub where a pest professional will be alerted; there is no need to contact us, he said.

For more information about ViroClean, SMART rodent detection-elimination, as well as a full menu of seasonal pest, bedbug and termite solutions, call (800) 479-2284;

CDC Issues ‘Aggressive Rodents’ Warning as Coronavirus Lockdown Orders Begin to Lift – PopCulture.com

Posted: at 6:42 am

Coronavirus-related lockdowns may be starting to lift in cities across the country, but Americans have something else to be worried about as they venture back out into society. Over the weekend, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned in a new advisory of "aggressive rodent behavior" as they scramble to find new food sources after shuttered businesses meant fewer food scraps for them to scavenge.

Noting in the advisory that "rodents rely on the food and waste generated by these establishments," the CDC warned that "community-wide closures have led to a decrease in food available to rodents, especially in dense commercial areas." As a result, some areas have seen an increase in rodent activity as they search for new food sources. Environmental and health officials may witness an increase in service requests amid reports of "unusual or aggressive rodent behavior," the CDC added.

Although the CDC did not specify what "unusual or aggressive" behavior these rodents may be exhibiting, Bobby Corrigan, an urban rodentologist, told NBC News in mid-April that as a result of the lack of food, rats "only have a couple of choices." The grim realities they face, he said, include cannibalism, rat battles and infanticide.

"It's just like we've seen in the history of mankind, where people try to take over lands and they come in with militaries and armies and fight to the death, literally, for who's going to conquer that land. And that's what happens with rats. A new 'army' of rats come in, and whichever army has the strongest rats is going to conquer that area," he said. "They're mammals just like you and I (sic), and so when you're really, really hungry, you're not going to act the same you're going to act very bad, usually. So these rats are fighting with one another, now the adults are killing the young in the nest and cannibalizing the pups."

To thwart the problem, the CDC urged residents and restaurant owners to take a number of preventative actions to "eliminate conditions that may attract and support rodent presence." Those preventative measures include "sealing up access into homes and businesses, removing debris and heavy vegetation, keeping garbage in tightly covered bins, and removing pet and bird food from their yards."

In some areas, action has already been taken. Speaking to The Times-Picayune newspaper, Claudia Riegel, director of the New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board said the city is preparing aggressive pest control measures, explaining that New Orleans was "going to put a lot of pressure for at least the next month" until the population decreases.

How are businesses operating safely these days? This company wants to show you – KPRC Click2Houston

Posted: at 6:42 am

The threat surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is affecting businesses across the world.

We are navigating through maintaining running our business efficiently and effectively as we hold our employees and our customers health with highest regard, said officials from ABC Home & Commercial Services, the largest independently owned pest control company in Texas.

For many businesses, its safe to say, it really does all come down to employees health and customers health.

But more specifically, what measures are companies actively taking? How have changes been implemented?

ABC Home & Commercial Services pulled back the curtain for us, to give readers a peek at how things have been operating in this new age of coronavirus.

Considering the fact that everyones degree of comfort varies, ABC is making sure that each employee is protected and safe. So that means the majority of the companys employees are working remotely or from home.

Our office staff, and technicians who have to stop by between servicing homes and businesses -- each person entering the building has to wash their hands in a mobilized station we have set up outside our doors, a company spokesperson said. Once they enter, we take the temperature of each person and record it. If they dont have a high temperature, they wear a wristband that helps provide peace to those working in the office.

Meetings are mostly being held on Zoom.

The company said people actually prefer teleconferencing, and employees feel more engaged than before.

Some meetings are still being held in the office, but business leaders make sure workers maintain 6 feet of social distance -- and give even a little extra space to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable.

Our technicians servicing the city of Houston are also sanitizing before and after (visiting) every home or business, the ABC spokesperson said. They are wearing masks and maintaining space from any homeowner or individual they come across. We also treat outside only, which creates a huge level of safety.

Businesses have had to adjust the way they conduct day-to-day operations, both temporarily and permanently.

One of the things ABC Home & Commercial has adjusted permanently, is the addition of a service line.

ABC serves businesses, restaurants and hospitals around the Houston metroplex with pest control, pool and lawn services. They have now added another on their lineup due to COVID-19: Sanitization/Disinfectant Service.

The Disinfectant Program is intended to give families and businesses peace of mind.

We will be applying a topical on surfaces of conducive regions where coronavirus may be active inside homes and businesses, the company spokesperson said. The product we use kills 100% of the organisms on the surface being treated, and specifically human coronavirus is on the label as a target organism.

This treatment is recommended to be performed weekly.

ABC said it wants to keep the economy and society thriving. Thats a top priority.

Together as we adjust temporarily and permanently due to COVID-19, we can make sure that this pandemic doesnt worsen or even return, the company spokesperson said. ABC is ready to serve Houstonians and protect them from this virus.

Finally, beyond coronavirus, we now have termites to think about. Formosan termites started swarming around the coast of Houston -- and have now migrated inland. They have been spotted all over Houston and even at ABC Home and Commercials office in Cypress.

You might not think of termites as aggressive, but Formosans are setting off alarms throughout the state. Their nocturnal swarms during late spring establish huge underground colonies with populations that grow to hundreds of thousands. The timing has been pushed into late May, and Houston needs to be prepared, the experts at ABC Home and Commercial said.

If youve seen these termites or think you might have an infestation, officials at ABC recommend that you call a professional to inspect your home and landscaping. Termite colonies can live up to 20 years and produce millions of termites, so you dont want to take chances with do-it-yourself solutions, the experts added.

CWC works on disinfecting airports, PSUs to fight virus – Daily Pioneer

Posted: at 6:42 am

The Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC), a PSU, which also offers pest control services besides storage and handling, is busy making its contribution in the fight against Covid-19.

Its technical staff comprising 700 personnel are working round the clock, majorly engaged in disinfecting the domestic and international flights every time its takes off as well as PSU offices and airports and hospitals to keep the Covid-19 at bay.

A senior official at the CWC, an organisation under the Union Consumer Affairs Ministry said that they are regularly getting calls for disinfections on daily basis and they have to keep a slot for every organisations depending on the emergency as well as the staff availability.

And as the domestic flight operations have resumed in the country, their major focus is on disinfecting and sanitising terminal building of the Airports in cities. The Corporation has core competency in executing these kind of operations.

We are following the protocol prepared by the Union Health Ministry. We ensure that our staff has proper PPE kits and all necessary precautions are adopted so that they do not get infected with the virus while carrying out their routine job, said the official.

As Covid-19 pandemic has swept the world as also India, the CWCs staff for the first time since the organisations inception in 1957 is now focussed more on combating Coronavirus infection than what it was previously ie termite treatment, rodent, mosquitoes, flies, termites, rodents, weed control, etc.

It has a range of clients of which prominent locations are ministries, PSUs, State/Central Government. offices, railway station and coach, workshop, ships, container, national museum, science center, aircraft, hanger, airlines, airports of Airport Authority of India, AIIMS, hospitals, banks, Universities, MSTC, HAL, HCL, GAIL, RBI, UTI among others.

To keep an edge over the private operators, we are also providing corona disinfection services in residential area at an economical rate, said the official as in light of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the importance of disinfection against communicable disease and vector/pest control has become an urgency.

He explained that disinfection services should be taken from the trained operator. As per the Insecticide Act1968, the accreditation & PCS license is a must for disinfestation works.

The recommended frequency of disinfection may be daily or thrice or twice a week, as per the Communicable Disease & Control guidelines, the official added.
