House flies are able to feed on liquids but have the ability to turn many solid foods into liquid for them to eat. House flies taste with their feet which are 10 million times more sensitive to sugar than the human tongue. House flies tend to stay within 1-2 miles of where they were born; however, they have been known to migrate up to 20 miles to find food. These insects have been known to carry over 100 different diseases causing germs which make them very bad house guests.
With these unwanted house guests, they can be controlled through vigilant sanitation, removing trash on a regular basis, and using well sealing garbage receptacles. Cleanup pest waste immediately and use a very fine mesh screen on doors and windows to prevent fly entry.
Bees are an amazing creature – vital to the workings of nature. They pollinate flowers, make honey, providing the necessary component in the circle of life. That be what it may, they also are very dangerous and can cause serious injury – even death. Provoking bees, or trying to treat them yourself, can result in an attack. Though treating them yourself may seem cost effective, it can be very costly to your health. We recommend that you leave this up to the professionals at Protection Termite.
When it comes to Africanized honey bees and European honey bees, there are similarities to both of them: look the same, sting to protect themselves and/or the colony, sting before they die, have the same venom, pollinate flowers, produce honey, and make wax.
They may seem very docile at first but can turn on you at any time. For this reason we strongly recommend that you do not: tease them, throw rocks or spray them with anything– water, gasoline, etc.
Africanized bees can sense a threat from people and animals 50 feet away from their colony. They sense vibration in noise from power equipment 100 feet or more away. They can pursue you up to 1/4 of a mile. They swarm frequently to establish new colonies and will move their entire colony readily if food is scarce. If you are attacked by bees: leave quickly, do not swat at them, cover your head and face with clothing, seek shelter inside an enclosed area, do not jump in water – they will wait for you – always remain calm.
Bees can develop their colonies in many areas such as trees, attics, eaves, play gyms, storage units, patio furniture, etc. If you are seeing any signs of bees, take them very seriously. Call Protection Termite to schedule for any bee or pest problems you may have.
