Flies are filthy. I saw a fly land on someone's food one time, and somebody else made a comment about it, and their response was "Oh well, he won't eat very much." My thought was, why would you want to eat something that a fly has lit on? For all that person knew, the fly had just come from a steaming pile of dungola.

Rats have managed to evolve right along side human civilization, thriving mainly because of us. They are smarter than most pets, quick to learn and easy to train. Rats even know when they don't know something* (which makes them smarter than most people IMO). In fact, rats share many similarities with us. Their social structure, physiology and apparent ability to reason are all traits that we share. Hell, we even eat the same foods and share the same environments. We share similar organs, similar body plans, We both control our body chemistry using similar hormones, we both have nervous systems that work in the same way, and we both react similarly to infection and injury. One of the reasons that scientists perform psychological and medicinal tests on rats is because, as a species we are both so similar. These similarities also bring the ethics of animal testing to greater light.
They do carry many zoonotic diseases and the fleas on them did cause some devastating plagues a few hundred years ago. Thusly, if you see one in the wild-stay the hell away from it. It can carry diseases that will fuck you up.
I rated rats a one because, I honestly don't mind them and I have a lot of respect for animals with higher intelligence. But they are pests and because they are largely dependant on us, they can cause a lot of problems for the unprepared. Specially bred pet ones can make great pets for the right people though.

In New York, you are three times more likely to get bit by a person than by a rat. A statistic that makes me think that rats are more tame. Just wanted to throw that out there.

Over the past few years, many gardeners have had prevalent pest issues in their gardens and lawns. You name it. There are various types of pests which can infest a garden. You can have moles, voles, gophers, and different types of insects like snails and ants. The pest we are focusing on here is the mole.

There is a gardening myth that moles consume the roots of plants and crops. This is not the case. Moles are only destructive to your plants because they destabilize the roots by building mounds and tunnels. Their main source of food is the earthworm. They are not interested in plant roots and such.

If your garden is infested by moles then there is only one great solution to this problem. I decided to have a go with the Sunforce 80001 Solar Mole Repeller after trying out various solutions. I tried using traps and poison but they still failed to keep the moles out. When I first heard about the mole repeller, I was skeptical. How was this miniature tool suppose to scare away all the moles in my garden?

Well guess what? After one week, all the mole activities disappeared! I was never so happy in my life. I can now happily watch my plants grow in the garden. The Sunforce 80001 emits this ultrasonic vibration which is suppose to scary away the moles. The noise can be a little irritating sometimes but it is definitely worth it because there are no moles in the garden!

Let me tell you how well these baits work I left them at my new house in a five gallon bucket on the oven. The next morning there was a bunch of dead ants in the bucket. The climbed a long way to get to the baits and payed dearly.

The reason they only have four stars is I haven't set them yet. So stay tuned and we'll see how they do.

Purchased this machine with the proper liquid to keep our patio area cleared of insect pests, in lieu of screening in the area.

I read and followed the directions. I turned the machine on 30 min before going out into the area and let it run. Then when I went out into the area to sit and enjoy the outdoors, the yellow flys started to bite me. I was about 6 ft. from the machine which was bellowing the mist non-stop. The flys did not see to care. I moved closer to the machine and they still did not care. They had no fear and the area was just as unusable a before. I sent the machine back for a refund, and was very dissapointed as it seemed to make no difference.

A friend of mine keeps one as a pet. I've grown pretty fond of the little guy.
Often in the summer, Gris and I will be out on the deck around dusk, having a beer and enjoying the soft summer night. Usually, we will see a couple of bats come out and start flying around. I'm always happy when that happens, because it means that some bugs are about to be eaten. A single bat can eat a thousand insects an hour. Like snakes and lizards, bats do people a huge favor by eating pests that can cause us serious harm. I'd hate to think how many bugs would be crawling around were it not for these harmless little guys. If bats and lizards did not live in our neighborhood, I would find it necessary to import them. They are far too beneficial to have around.

You have to hate the guts out of those lil' fuckers, even if only for the fact that they are relentless in their attempts to go through a mosquito net. And if one gets in, the best chance of defeating the sucker is to use the meanest, most deadly killing machine ever invented: a nicely rolled newspaper.

"Mosquitoes are estimated to transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually in Africa, South America, Central America, Mexico and much of Asia with millions of resulting deaths." - how could one not hate them?

I have a love/ hate relationship with spiders. I immediately dislike them because they are bugs, but I have a grudging respect for them because without them we would literally be ass-deep in other insects. So if I see one in the house or outside, I will let it live. But if they come close to me I'll run away like a pig-tailed school girl.
