Termites can just be the worst thing that could happen to anyone’s property. Structural and financial damage are definitely imminent when a home or an establishment gets infested.

Green Ply Plywood Blog shared some tips on how to prevent termites from damaging a property.

“Wooden furniture bring a lot of natural warmth to any home, and also look great for ages to come. Unfortunately, they also attract termites. Even if you take good care of your furniture – once you hear that familiar scraping noise, it means all that effort is moot. You have two solutions – to replace the furniture, or to fumigate them to kill the termites. The second one isn’t too safe either, if you consider a recent CNN news item, where it was shown how a 10-year old had to be hospitalized and lost most of his motor skills after suffering from poisoning caused by fumigation.”

Tick-free Yard

Tree Hugger also posted its techniques on tick prevention and eradication. San Marcos CA

They bring us Lyme disease, the bacterial infection anaplasmosis, the parasitic infection babesiosis and the Powassan virus, all of which can be serious (and even fatal) at times. And in general, tick populations are expanding their turf.”
