Have You Ever Bugged Out?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Orkin Ecologist for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey Neighbors!

Bugs are not exactly a favorite creature of mine.  As a general rule, I am not afraid of them, but I definitely do not like them, especially when they surprise me.  I did not mind when my children carried bugs to me to look at, it was the ones, I didn't see coming that gave me a scare.  I mean who wants to see a large insect land in their hair and you can hear clicking type noises, but you can't see them.  My husabdn knocked it out of my hair, but I never did find out what it was.

My one daughter used to be terrified of bugs.  I am talking the screaming, shaking, almost hysteria type fear.  It was while she was young.  I can remember taking her to a public restroom when she was about 3 and I was waiting outside the door for her.  She started yelling, "There's a bug!  There's a bug!".  Unfortunately she needed to unlock the door to let me in, and it took several minutes to get her to realize this.  She did get over this and started bringing me bugs to see.  As a matter of fact, about the time she turned 8 a friend (a boy of course) tried to scare her with a bug and she asked to see it closer.  He was very disgusted that she did not holler like his sister did.

What is the scariest bug you have ever seen?  Did you "bug out"?  I read an article about the world’s scariest bugs,.  it was quite interesting and I plan on sharing it during school soon.  I actually think I have read about almost all the bugs in the article, except the bullet ant.  They claim that their sting is like being shot or like being stabbed with a hot nail.  I don't think I ever want to meet one of those.

If you or your children are interested in bugs, you will find the Orkin Ecologist site extremely interesting.  Homeschooling moms, take note and bookmark the page.  You might want to find them on their social media pages also, like Orkin Ecologist on Facebook.  Their Pinterest page The Orkin Ecolgist is simply astounding, with all the bug pictures.  We found some really good science material in these pages.

Take a minute and share your own #BugOut moment in the comments here or on one of your social media. By using the hashtag you will be included in all the buzzzz!  Thanks for stopping by!  See you,At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
