Man Burned Trying to Kill Bedbugs Inside Rental Car.

Police say a Long Island man set his rental car ablaze while trying to kill bedbugs inside the vehicle. Scott Kemery suffered first- and second-degree burns in the incident Tuesday outside an Eastport supermarket.

Police say the Bridgehampton resident poured alcohol over the insects, then sat in the car and lit a cigarette, setting off the blaze.  He fled the vehicle on his own.  Detective Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald said someone told Kemery that if he saturated the bedbugs with alcohol it would kill them. Two other cars were heavily damaged from the intense heat of the fire.


 Man uses gasoline to exterminate bed bugs. House explodes and burns.

An attempt to kill bedbugs with gasoline led to an explosion and house fire Sunday, according to the Omaha Fire Department. Firefighters said only one person was taken to the hospital with burns. Officials said the injured man was trying to use gasoline to kill a bedbugs infestation. They said the vapors were likely ignited by the pilot light on the water heater, causing the explosion.  Two other people made it out of the home uninjured. The fire department said the house was severely damaged by the pressure of the blast.
 


Chilliwack City Council takes action to control European Fire Ant invasion.

European Fire Ants (EFAs) are a nuisance that can deliver painful stings and are known to exist in Chilliwack. They are most likely spread through the movement of infested soil/mulch products and potted plants. European Fire Ants can negatively impact the use of yards, gardens, lawns, parks and other green spaces. Once established on a property, they are difficult to control so preventing their
spread is key. An understanding of EFAs is important for property owners and businesses  such as:  Garden centresPest control companies, Landscaping companies, Property managers, Nurseries, Realtors

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Health Canada Reminds Pet Owners of Risks Using Flea and Tick Product

OTTAWA, April 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Health Canada continues to receive reports of cats and dogs becoming ill from flea and tick treatments. As flea and tick season approaches, Health Canada would like to remind Canadians about how to safely use these pesticide products on family pets, especially those applied directly to the pets' skin. Improper use of these products can potentially lead to adverse reactions in cats and dogs. Skin irritation is the most common symptom. Other reactions can be neuromuscular, such as tremors, or gastrointestinal, such as vomiting.

What you should do

Pet owners using flea and tick control products should:

  • Carefully read and follow the label directions.

  • Use flea and tick control products only on the animal specified on the product label – dog products for dogs and cat products for cats.

  • Use only the amount of product specified in the instructions based on the size and weight of your pet. Do not apply products to animals younger than the minimum age stated on the label.

  • Discuss any concerns about the use of flea and tick products with a veterinarian or the product's manufacturer.


On February 23, Health Canada was made aware of the death of an infant and the serious injury of other family members from exposure to what appears to be a phosphine pesticide. A second child has since died as a result of this incident. This pesticide, which is highly toxic to humans and animals, was imported for personal use from abroad and was being used in the residence for the control of bedbugs. In Canada, phosphine pesticides can only be sold to individuals holding an appropriate pesticide applicator certificate or licence and are not approved for use on bedbugs. Health effects from exposure to phosphine can include severe injury or death.

Health Canada is also aware of other incidents involving the use of ozone generators (machines that produce ozone gas) for the control of bedbugs. Ozone generating devices are not safe to use and can cause respiratory problems including coughing, chest pain, shortness of breath, and irritation of eyes, nose and throat.

Health Canada is warning Canadians of the extreme danger of using unregistered pest control products, including those imported from other countries or obtained when travelling abroad. The department also reminds Canadians that pesticides should only be used according to the directions outlined on product labels.

What you should do
Bedbugs are very hard to get rid of. Health Canada strongly recommends hiring a licensed professional pest control operator to deal with a bedbug infestation. Contact information for exterminators or pest control operators can be found

Canadian scientists discover a breakthrough bait-and-trap for bed bugsToronto bed bug

Simon Fraser University scientists have announced that they have discovered the chemical attractants needed to create the world’s first effective and affordable bait-and-trap for bed bugs. The traps, which they hope will be commercially available next year, might be able to capture enough of the bugs to eliminate a small outbreak, said SFU biology professor Gerhard Gries.

How Safe Are The Pesticides Available in Canada?

This is one of many questions posted on the "What is this pest" page

1513  This bug was found in Rosedale, Chilliwack, BC.  Angela..
This is a giant water bug (Hemiptera: Belostomatidae), a.k.a. toe biter or electric light bug. They are voracious predators on aquatic invertebrates as well as the occasional tadpole or small fish, and can deliver quite a painful ‘bite’ if mishandled. See nos. 1498, 1457, and 1378 for other examples. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
