Termites – Why Love to Hate Them?

Termites are perhaps one of the most hated bugs in the planet. Yes, they sting bit this isn’t the reason why people hate termites. It is because of the fact that termites cause damage to property. A single colony of thousands can easily level down a house and people who live in it would have no idea what’s happening. They would only realize the threat once the damage has been done.

An infrastructure such as a house or a building will have its structural integrity easily compromised if there’s a colony of termites nesting there. Moreover, its livability would drop if considerable damage to beams and foundation is present. Termite infestation in infrastructures is a serious issue because one structural integrity is compromised the structure would become brittle and weak. Because of the damage they pose to structures, considering pest control Huntington Beach has become very important.

Termites can also electrical wirings. The jaws of termites are strong, especially with damp wood termites. Their jaws are so strong that they can chew through cables or electrical wiring in search for cellulose. If cables and wires are damage, the structure and the people inside it are at risk from fire and other sorts of electrical accidents.

Termites not only compromise the structural integrity of buildings and homes but also compromise the health of those who stay inside them. Termites can spread molds that can cause serious illnesses. The dark and damp environment termites make becomes an ideal growth environment for molds. When termites chew through wood and increase the size of their colony, they also end up dispersing mold spores. Once the spores are on the air they can be inhaled which may trigger fungal infections, allergies, skin and pulmonary diseases.

Termites Do Not Bite

Termites are indeed frightening little bugs because of the danger they pose to our homes and infrastructures. But there are people who are afraid of termites because they are thought to produce painful bites and that they are harmful to humans. So do termites really produce painful bites? Are they directly harmful to us?

Termites have mandibles or pincer type mouth appendages that you might believe they bite or pinch but the truth is termites almost don’t bite at all… except for certain species and types of termite as well as members of the colony. These tiny insects may indeed have strong mandibles to bite through wood but it is not strong enough to cause a lot of pain when their tiny mandibles pinch your skin. In fact, the bite of a mosquito is more stinging than the bite of a termite. However, there are termites that secrete formic acid just like ants and this acid can cause a stinging and blistering sensation when in contact with the skin.

So if you feel pain when termite bites you, it is not the bite that is causing you pain. It is the formic acid they secrete. Formic acid is a defensive weapon used by termites when they know the enemy is overwhelming for them.

When it comes to direct harm, termites do not pose any health risk. They are not carriers of bacteria or viruses that can cause sicknesses. However, the formic acid they have can cause allergic reaction to some people. The only direct harm termites can bring is their ability to consume wood and destroy structures. The difficulty to control these bugs can bring a huge damage to homes and infrastructure that can be costly to repair. So before they can do any damage that would cost a lot to repair call a pest control in Los Angeles right away.

Blondes Fishing

Three blondes were sitting by the side of a river holding fishing poles with the lines in the water. A game warden came up behind them, tapped one on the shoulder and said, “Excuse me, ladies, I’d like to see your fishing licenses.”

“We don’t have any.” replied the first blonde.

“Well, if you’re going to fish, you need fishing licenses,” he said.

“But officer,” replied the second blonde, “we aren’t fishing. We all have magnets at the end of our lines blondefishingmagnetand we’re collecting debris off the bottom of the river.”

The warden lifted up all the lines and, sure enough, there were magnets tied on the end of each line.

“Well, I know of no law against it,” said the warden, “take all the debris you want.” And with that, he left. As soon as he was out of sight, the three blondes started laughing hysterically.

“What a dumb cop,” the third blonde said to the other two, “doesn’t he know that there are steelhead trout in this river?!”

Getting A Legit Loan

Nowadays, it is not easy to get a loan, even if you have a decent credit and if you provide collateral. But sometimes, the difficulty of getting a loan is not because loan companies won’t accept your application. It is because there are many unscrupulous fellows who would take advantage on poor individuals who are having a difficult time getting a loan. For them, such individuals are perfect cash cow that they wouldn’t want to slip out of their reach.

So what is a legit lender? Well, Banks and Credit or Financial Unions are legitimate lenders. But so do other lending companies that are listed on the business bureau. Even online lending companie and payday loan lender can be legit so long as they are certified.

But be careful when you receive marketing emails from various companies which contains offer for credit. These fellows are the ones you should look out for. Then again, this does not mean they are illegitimate lenders. Many legitimate companies use this tactic in order to get customers. However, because it is a known tactic, some illegitimate and unscrupulous companies would also employ the same tactic to catch possible victims.

So, what should you do? Simple. Do some research! Using the internet will help you get all the information you would need to know whether one company is a legitimate lender or not. If you cannot find information about the company and cannot find testimonials and reviews from customers, then you should not waste your time with them. Furthermore, if you see a lot of negative reviews or complaints, then this is a sign that you have to consider a different company instead.

In addition to research, go check the Better Business Bureau. Legitimate lenders are registered with BBB and they would have all the information regarding the business as well as the complaints and reports filed against them. Check if the company has a local office address and try to check on the company personally.

Envy Of People Is Unsightly

Why are some people envious of others? Why would they hate the idea of other people being happy? Why would they feel down if one is doing well? Why would they be happy if one is hurting? Why would they wish for the downfall of other people? Why would they try to drag others down the rut they are in?

I am asking these questions because I am surrounded by folks who has eyes green with envy. I don’t like the sight of it. I admit, I am not a saint because I too would feel envious at times but not to a certain degree that would make me wish for the sadness of other people. If they are doing well, then I can be happy for them. I might just wish to be as happy as them or be like them.

It feels terrible here you know. While I am writing this blog I can hear folks here talking bad about someone we know, who is actually doing well in her life. I don’t like the things that are coming from their mouth, most of it are just their accusations and assumptions. If she would hear what they are saying, she would be hurt – badly.

I know her and as far as I know, their accusations and assumptions about her are far from the truth. I can’t afford to tell her what the folks here are saying about her. I don’t want to cause any trouble. For now, I have to shut my mouth and endure the bad things I am hearing about her.

Purpose of My Blog

Every blog has a purpose. Some are meant as an outlet for someone’s hobbies and interests. Some people use blogs to share stories about themselves, their lives, the people around them and what happened to their lives. You can call it some sort of personal documentation. A diary in short. There are also some people who use blogs differently. Like for example using it to make money. Now that is really something interesting. You talk about various and make money at the same time.

How about my blog? What purpose do I have in making this blog?

JE NE SAIS PAS! That’s I don’t know in French. Great! Finally, I was able to use it where it would make sense to other people.

I have no idea what’s the exact purpose why I am writing this blog. I don’t see any direction from here on. I will just write and write anything that I want and see where it might take me. I am such a clueless guy you know.

Why not check my blog again next time. Who knows I might post something that would be of interest to you.
