Fleas: The Common Enemy To Your Furry Friends

This past Summer, one of my good friends adopted a beautiful German Shepherd puppy. The problem with buying dogs from people on the Internet though, is that sometimes the sellers don’t tell the whole truth. A prime example of this is when you’re on your way back from an hour [...]

Fast, Furious, and Ferociously Gross

It’s the beginning of August, which means new leases are starting and lots of moving in and out of homes and apartments. While this can be very exciting, it can also be stressful. Why stressful? Imagine being a new tenant, going around and filling out the move-in problems form, when [...]

Ants In Your Pants

I’ve been living in my new house in Waco, Texas for the past couple months, and I haven’t ran into many indoor bug problems. Only an occasional threatening spider here and there, but nothing more. This past week my third roommate finally moved in, and after a couple of days [...]

Bites: What’s Eating You This Summer?

Feeling extra itchy lately? Well that’s because summer is the season where the human become the prey of awful outdoor bugs. Bites are pretty common during the summer since we spend so much time soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful weather. While most bites seem more annoying than [...]

Shoo Fly, Don’t Bother Me!

A couple days ago I went a visited with some of my friends who live down the street, and I ran into an unpleasant surprise upon entry into their home: flies. So Many. Flies. Prior to this incident, I had no idea that homes were capable of having fly invasions. [...]

Get the Scoop, Don’t Be Confused! (Termites vs. Carpenter Ants)

Now that it’s summer, both Termites and Carpenter Ants have come out of hiding to menace homes across the nation. These two insects are not one and the same though; it is true that both Carpenter Ants and Termites swarm and are similar in size, but it’s extremely important to [...]

Spiders: Friend or Foe?

This summer is easily one of the wettest summers of Texas in years, and with more rain means more summer pests than usual.   Last week was a particularly rainy week in Waco, which brought my house quite the few unwarranted creatures. Out of all the different bugs that harbored [...]

The Housewarming Committee You Never Wanted

A couple weeks ago I moved into a new house, and with a new house comes new responsibility.   As I went through the standard leasing checklist to make sure nothing was broken, I discovered a slew of house warming pests. There were spiders, yellow jackets and wasps (oh my!) [...]

The Roach Apocalypse

Today I was brought to tears. The source? No, it wasn’t heartbreak, or a major tragedy, I wasn’t injured, and I am still perfectly healthy. So what inspired these drops of sadness? None other than a big-no, a huge- black, awful looking, bug. It had been a good day, a [...]
