Bug free leaves harmless for the most part in Columbus Ohio

Bug free Leaves harmless for the most part in Columbus Ohio

Do you ever think there are bugs underneath all those beautiful leaves?
How about pests like ticks? Rustic moth caterpillars? Wasps?
Rustic moth caterpillars are hibernating, wasps and other bees are gone with the lower temperatures.
The only concern may be ticks. However, they do not even create a true threat because nothing is attracting ticks to the leaf piles.
Deer ticks that may carry Lyme disease could be found where your yard meets the woods.

Fall is here and it is beautiful to watch leaves turn into different colors like yellow, orange and red.
However, as leaves fall off the tree and onto our yard and turn into a big play ground for kids of all ages.
It is still sunny and warm during the day so we rake and play together with our kids in leave piles.

If you are concerned about ticks, rake leaves in temperatures below 40 degrees.
Ticks hibernate in temperatures below 40 degrees, so your leaf piles may already be tick-free.
If you’re still on the fence, stay away from the interface between your yard and the woods.
If you still feel uncomfortable and want to be tick free during all four seasons.
Have environmental friendly pest control treat outside of your home.

Who is Ready for Carpenter ants in Columbus Ohio?

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Ants In Columbus Ohio

“I get scared when I see ants around the house during spring. I keep spraying and they keep coming back. What should I do in this situation?
There are so many ants out there how can I tell which one is which.”

If you are a housewife with kids and see big black and red ants crawling around the house what do you do?
Do you scream with kids and evacute or do you identify the ant and call professional?
We need to be proacitive to identify. As spring approach, carpenter ants will mate and start destroying our home to build their nest.

If you see large black or red ants ranges from 1/4-1/2 inch, it is carpenter ants.
They are able to fly to establish new colony. Most people mix up carpenter ants and termites because of this fact.
Unlike termite, carpenter ants do not eat wood as food, they burrow into woods to expand their nest.

Bug Bites Cause Health Scare Aboard Plane at Midway

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

bedbugs-img-adult

Written By Staff Report, from the Orlando Sentinel

A Minnesota woman who caused a health scare aboard a Delta Airlines flight from Detroit — causing the plane to be kept on the tarmac at Midway International Airport Thursday for three hours — says it was all a misunderstanding over bug bites.

Lise Sievers of Red Wing was one of 43 passengers aboard Delta flight 3163 to Midway when it touched down and the captain announced the plane would be briefly quarantined. Men with surgical masks over their faces boarded the plane, and rumors flew as passengers tried to figure out what sort of contagion might be spreading through the cabin.

Sievers said she had been in Uganda, where she is adopting two special needs children and “stayed at a hotel the other night and I think it left friends on my body. My son, who’s four and a half, had pustules on him.”

Before she left Detroit, she told her mother that she had a rash, apparently from bed bugs, and that the boy had pustules. But her mother misunderstood and “conflicting information” was passed on to health officials, who feared Sievers might have monkeypox.

Sievers, 50, who was on the tail end of a 20-plus hour trip that began in Uganda, where she had spent more than three months trying to finalize the adoption of two special needs children, wondered as well, said her son, Roger Sievers.

During a layover in Detroit, she had called her mother in LaPorte, Ind., and mentioned one of the children she was trying to adopt had broken out in pustules-small, pimple-like sores– during her visit, and that the boy had to be taken to the hospital in Uganda. Sievers also mentioned to her mother that she had suffered an unrelated case of itchy bites she believed had been inflicted by bedbugs.

While Sievers’ flight was en route to Midway, her mother confused Sievers’ bug bites and the boy’s pustules, and called her local hospital to ask what she should do to prepare to treat her daughter’s symptoms.

“Any time you mention you’ve been in a tropical country like Uganda and you’ve developed what sounds like an infectious disease, well, they call the CDC (Center for Disease Control) right away,” said Roger Sievers.

Indeed, according to a press release from the CDC issued Thursday, authorities suspected she may have come down with monkey pox, a contagious disease that occurs mostly in western Africa that causes victims to break out in small, crusty bumps. Sievers, however, was as surprised as anyone when her plane was surrounded by ambulances and fire vehicles when it landed at Midway, her son said.

Aboard the plane, health crews took pictures of her rash. Experts determined they were bug bites and let Sievers and her fellow passengers off the plane. Sievers went to a hospital for additional tests-which turned up nothing, her son said-and was resting at a relative’s house in Indiana Thursday night.

Sievers will head back to Uganda in a month to finalize the adoption of the two children who will be the latest of more than 10 children she has adopted over more than 20 years, her son said. The adoption process had dragged on so long, the extra few hours on the tarmac at Midway didn’t seem to faze her, Roger Sievers said. Her fellow passengers were polite, even the ones seated close to her, he said.
