“Above you’ll notice that inside the bowl is some water and that water represents the content of the bowl. Your content is your experience and knowledge that you will share with your audiences.

Do you live in an older home that is somewhat drafty? If you do, it is possible that the critters you are finding may be getting into the house via a loose door jamb or a window that is not sealed around the edges. Check your doors and windows, especially in the parts of the house where you see the bugs. A Rat Control agent can get rid of the unwanted critters, but you still need to do what you can to prevent them from returning. You may have to have some of these openings sealed. This will keep bugs outside where they belong, and it will also save you a lot of money on your future energy bills. You won’t be sending your cool air out the door so quickly.

Wire dog crates are as popular as plastic for other reasons. They are versatile, foldable and many come with a handle for portability. They give your dog 360 degree visibility, which is important to some dogs, and in turn lets you keep a better eye on your dog. They are not as den-like as plastic crates, but again, some dogs prefer the open environment with lots of light to that of the enclosed, darker plastic crate.
In the old days, DDT was used for bed bugs. People used that liberally, and it was found to be not safe to use around people. Science has grown by leaps and bounds in the last 50 years, and most of the products on the market today are natural products that are safe to use.
