Pest News:

 It's Spider Season
Arachnophobia spreading like a virus

  As summer days get shorter, and dusk brings dampness that clings to every surface by dawn, natures most prolific insect predator is showing up for photo opportunities.

  More than half the recent photos sent to this web site for identification include some of the thousands of species of Arachnids. We receive so many spider photos we can publish only the best and most unusual.

    Most submissions include the question: "Are they Dangerous"?  The most common example of an animal-based phobia is fear of spiders, or Arachnophobia. This fear prompts many to scurry for their digital cameras and snap a picture before the little creature bites them and runs away.  Most of these fears are unfounded. Humans are not a food source for spiders.
More information on spiders can be found at the links below:

New Pesticide Tested for Medical Marijuana Grow Ops.

Matica Enterprises Inc. has announced they have approval to commence testing of GlobalEx effervescent chlorine dioxide tablets for use in the Canadian and U.S. horticultural and agricultural industries. Matica intends to utilize these cutting-edge chlorine dioxide tablets in the quickly expanding medical marijuana and industrial hemp industries for the elimination of mold, bio-film and pests in controlled growing facilities, eliminating the need for harmful or Health restricted pesticides. According to Health Canada (MMPR) guidelines, medical marijuana must not be treated before, during or after the drying process with a pest control product that has not been approved. Matica and ChroniCare Canada Corp. have acquired medical marijuana plants that have been specifically infected with spider mites, a common pest associated with marijuana plants, for the purposes of conducting controlled trials using the chlorine dioxide tablets.
 


Canada's Bed Bug Problem Worsening, Experts Say

Bed bugs are multiplying in record numbers in cities and smaller communities across Canada, CTV News reports. Pest control experts say the frequency of bed bug reports has shot up 20 per cent since last year, as the blood-sucking, rapidly-reproducing insects have continued to spread.

 

  Quebec mayor, stung by wasps, dies

The mayor of a Montreal bedroom community has died after being stung by wasps.
Lucie F. Roussel, the mayor of La Prairie, was out for a walk at her cottage in the Eastern Townships Sunday when she stepped on a wasps’ nest, according to a statement by the city.   Ms. Roussel, 51, was transported to hospital in Thetford-Mines, Que., where she was pronounced dead. It was not immediately clear if Ms. Roussel suffered from allergies.


  Woman arrested after spraying child in face with pesticide

A Grover Beach woman is facing felony battery and child cruelty charges after police say she sprayed a 7-year-old neighbor in the face with a poisonous pesticide.  Julie Wilhelmina Rodenhuis, 60, was booked into the County Jail on Wednesday night on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery with serious injury and child endangerment.  Officers responded to a condominium complex following a report of an assault on a child. Investigators later determined the child was approached by Rodenhuis and sprayed in the face with a poisonous weed killer. The child was immediately treated by family members and emergency personnel who responded to the scene, taken to a local hospital and later released.


Warning:  Pet Collars may be a risk to children

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has canceled flea and tick pet collars containing an insecticide. This decision was reached as a result of EPA’s risk assessment showing risks to children from exposure to pet collars containing propoxur,  an insecticide registered for use to control ticks, fleas and a variety of insects and is used in industrial, commercial and residential facilities. “This action is another example of EPA’s efforts to protect children from pesticide risks,” said Jim Jones, assistant administrator of the EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. The action represents the solution to most quickly remove the pet collars from the market. EPA’s risk assessment found, in some but not all use scenarios, unacceptable risks to children from exposure to propoxur pet collars

The pet collars are marketed by Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc. and Wellmark International under the trade names including Bansect, Sentry, Zodiac and Biospot. Flea and tick collars work by leaving a pesticide residue on dogs' and cats' fur, which can be transferred to people by hugging, petting or coming into contact with the pets. The major source of exposure to these chemicals is from absorption through the skin after directly touching the treated pet. Small children may ingest pesticide residues when they touch a treated cat or dog and subsequently put their hands in their mouth.

If you purchase a propoxur pet collar, read the label carefully and follow all directions on the label to protect your family from exposure. Do not allow children to play with the collar, and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling.

New Garlic-Based Mosquito Repellent Registered for Use in Canada

TORONTO - Upper Canada Organic Products,  Toronto, Ont., Canada announced the issuance of the Canadian Pesticide Registration for Mosquito Barrier. The active ingredient is 100% garlic juice. Mosquito Barrier is labeled to repel mosquitoes from outside areas such as backyards, parks and campgrounds. 

Mosquito Barrier is made from the strongest non-GMO garlic commercially available. The juice for this product is made by pressing hundreds of pounds of garlic and extracting the juice. Adding less than one percent of preservative, that comes from corn and citrus, makes Mosquito Barrier as close to coming out of the garden as anything on the market today. Mosquito Barrier also has a patent in Canada and the USA relating to the method of repelling mosquitoes from recreational locations using a garlic extract. 


One Pregnant Bed Bug Could Produce a Family of Thousands

Genetic analysis has shown that a single pregnant bed bug that escapes detection can be responsible for an entire infestation, rapidly producing generations of offspring.

It could create a colony of thousands of bed bugs, feeding on a single human. The study was based on London, which has seen a resurgence in bed bugs. A DNA study showed that colonies of bed bugs in a house or hotel could all come from a common ancestor or a handful of female bed bugs. The rapid expansion in numbers could take place over a matter of weeks - at which point there is usually human intervention to destroy the bugs.  Researchers say bed bugs' ability to generate a new colony from such small numbers might be a "clue to their recent success".   If a single pregnant bed bug manages to hide away, getting into a traveler's luggage for example, it is enough to begin a new infestation.
 


 Tasty Automotive Wiring Attracting Rodents

Several years ago, automakers started using biodegradable, soy-based wiring insulation. This was the manufacturers’ concession to going “green” because the soy-based wiring degrades in landfills, unlike the older petroleum-based, plastic-covered wiring. Unfortunately, the manufacturers didn’t consider possible ramifications. Soy is food-based; rodents are attracted to it, so they are even more likely to chew on wiring that has a soy-based covering. Even worse, automakers are starting to make other car parts, like seat padding, with soy-based materials. It's great for the environment but even better for hungry mice and squirrels. They are drawn to it, therefore they are chewing and eating it, And mechanics  are also finding nests created in the upper plenums (fresh air intakes).
What You Can Do

Some automakers are responding.  Honda dealers now sell rolls of anti rodent tape for wires, that can be used on any car, not just Hondas. If you suspect a critter has gotten under the hood of your car, you need to take action immediately, because he will be back. And he may bring his friends and family next time.

How Safe Are The Pesticides Available in Canada?
Pesticides are regulated by Health Canada under the Pest Control Products Act, and are among the most stringently regulated substances in Canada. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency is the branch of Health Canada that administers the Act on behalf of the Minister of Health.

Did you know it's against the law...

- to use pesticides to control any pest that is not listed on the label.

- to use pesticides in a manner that is not in compliance with directions on the label.

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.
