"We know that fur has to be ancient. The evolutionary tree of modern mammals is a very furry one, and the last time the three major lineages of today’s beasts – the monotremes, marsupials, and placentals – shared a common ancestor was in the Triassic, over 220 million years ago. There’s no indication that hair evolved more than once, so fur has to be at least that old."
When did our ancestors first get furry?

DIYers, you are going to want to read this article.
"Diatomaceous earth and other abrasive dusts have been used as insecticides for millennia. Our ancestors coated themselves with earthen dusts to rid themselves of external parasites. Early civilizations also used them to protect grain from pests during storage. Of all insecticide powders, diatomaceous earth (DE) has probably received the most public attention. Do-it-yourself pest control outlets have been marketing diatomaceous earth as a non-toxic, “eco-friendly” alternative for years. The material’s purported effectiveness against bed bugs, however, is what really put it in the spotlight. Frequently cited as an effective, reduced-risk tool for managing bed bugs, the compound has become a favorite of bed bug blogs and advocacy groups."
Diatomaceous earth is often touted as a do-it-yourself remedy for bed bugs. In this study, University of Kentucky researchers and pest professionals put it to the test under real-world conditions.

What scares you about spiders?
Scientists hope to learn whether arachnophobes' perception of spiders as larger than actual size causes their fear—or whether it is the fearfulness itself that causes their visual misperception.

#SaveTheBees in your very own yard.
Attract bees by planting blue, purple, violet, white, and yellow flowers. We’ll show you the best flower varieties to get your gardening buzzing. Butterflies, bees, and flower-feeding birds all have a sweet tooth. They need pollen and nectar from flowers to power their flight and nourish offspring.

Have you ever seen an Oak Hairstreak? If not, you may not be looking in the right places. You can find them in the leaves and branches of your tree's canopy.
By Ed Ricciuti In an era when reports proliferate about species careening towards extinction, field research by two University of Connecticut (UCONN) entomologists has turned up refreshing news: a …

"Apparently, way back when Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, a group of insects called lacewings produced butterflies. Not the butterflies we see flitting around today from the Order Lepidoptera, but floating, flapping, nectar-sucking flibbertigibbits nonetheless, with wings adorned with eyespots, veins, and scales."
Jurassic butterflies disappeared a full 45 million years before the first caterpillar decided to grow up and become a beautiful butterfly—again

"Until recently, only one bacterium in North America was known to cause the disease: Borrelia burgdorferi. (In Europe, two other species are more common.)This year, researchers at Mayo Clinic testing blood and synovial fluid samples from people infected with Lyme disease discovered six infections that did not trace to B. burgdorferi. In addition to a rash, fever and other classic Lyme symptoms, those patients also experienced confusion, nausea and vomiting. “Not so typical for Lyme disease,” Mead observed."
Camping? Don’t forget the bug spray. Lyme disease covers new ground.

Ray has been servicing my home as long as I can remember - probably over 15 years. He checks for what fits my schedule; arrives on time; is courteous and thorough; and works for a fair price. I have no bug problems thanks to Ray and Roberts Pest Control!

Robert's pest control is a friendly and professional service we've been using for years. I love their customer service and consistent attention to timely execution. I'm not one to rave often, but they are definitely the best pest control service I've come across, and highly recommend them!

I have the service every three months and I never have had a problem. Josh, the service guy is very nice and sees that the chemical is spray in each corner of the house. Also, outside on the yard. The receptionist calls you on time to set up your appointments.
