Forestry Experts Urging Property Owners to Protect Themselves from Douglas Fir Beetle
As the number of Douglas fir beetles is on the rise in British Columbia, forestry service is urging property owners in the country to take necessary measures to protect their trees from the insect. Experts suggest that property owners spray their trees with MCH repellent so that they won’t be attacked by the invasive insect. Even though Douglas fir beetles only attack dying trees in most cases, for instance, trees that have been affected by drought or wildfires, their increasing number is likely to drive them to attack even perfectly healthy trees. Generally, the insects start eating and attacking the trees during early summer, so it is highly suggested that you call professionals to start applying the necessary repellents now.
Court Forced to be Adjourned After Bed Bugs Crawl Out of Lawyer’s Suit
An Oklahoma courthouse had to be adjourned after a lawyer reportedly arrived with bed bugs crawling out of his suit. According to County Sheriff Scott Walton, a large number of bugs were just “falling out” of the lawyer’s suit. Apparently, a courthouse user first noticed the bugs crawling on the lawyer’s neck. The lawyer had also placed his coat over a few file folders, which were crawling with bed bugs too in no time. After this discovery, it was decided that the courthouse must be evacuated since inmates were present at the time, which increased the risk of a bug infestation in prison. The courthouse was shut down and decontaminated soon after.
Bed bugs can be found everywhere, and they travel from one place to another easily. Public places especially need to be careful since the chances of infestation are higher. If you have any bed bugs in your home or in your workplace, make sure to call professional pest exterminators.
Students at Riddell Centre alarmed by the presence of cockroaches in university
For the second time within the school year, cockroaches were found at Riddell Centre, worrying the students about their safety and hygiene. The management quickly took action, closing down the school for a night to carry out extermination works.
Even though a huge number of the cockroaches were removed by professionals, some students are still concerned about finding cockroaches in the campus. Some students said that this is an even bigger issue for those who relied heavily on the food in the campus since the cockroaches were found so close to where the food was cooked and served.
Management has announced that they will do what they can to continue monitoring the infestation because pest control is an “ongoing issue.” They added that such kind of incidents isn’t uncommon in such a large campus.
If your school, workplace or home has any kinds of bugs, make sure to get in touch with the best exterminators in Canada.
