A reader to my blog sent me a picture of of a parasite coming out of a mouses toosh. It was nasty.. Now everytime think of mice my mind wanders to pests or bugs. I remember all the times I had to deal with pantry pests, now I know why I might have had them. Upon seeing this picture my reader sent me, I thought about the article I read last year, which stated, that if you suddenly have pantry bugs, or blowflys coming out of your vents, you could have a mice infestation. I had never thought of that before as a reason for pantry bugs. Back to the parasite coming out of mouse rear, a giant blowfly larve.

Bugs can spread diseases in human body therefore we should finish live away from bugs.

In my opinion bugs are more than just part of the eco-system, they are vitally important to our health. It seems to me that these days more and more people are developing complaints and allergies than ever before.
We are becoming more susceptible to many common things because we live in sterile environments, where we spray on disinfectants to eliminate all bugs and bacteria, but surely we need these in our life to build up our immunes systems. These sprays kill of the good bacteria as well as the bad. Not all bugs and bacteria are bad for us.

David

Most pest control agencies now use products that are not toxic to your environment. Despite your reservations, it is important to have a professional treat the area periodically.

It isn’t harmful to kids or pets, so when you get infested with bugs- use something that isn’t dangerous!! :)

Had never heard of those concoctions. In terms of the potato mush, make sure you keep the small ball of mash away from pets AND children.

You make very important points. I do mention that bugs play a vital role in the ecosystem. I’m talking about my personal feelings towards bugs. Even when I mention eliminating them from the home, I recommend IPM as the best preventive measure. Thank you for your comments.

Against mice:one pound of dry fly-agaric to flood with one pint of whisky and to draw 14 days in warm place. Than two table-spoon to add to one pint of water and to wet the groats. Since two weeks mice will disappear.
Against cockroaches: to make potato mash. To add the yolk and boric acid. To make small ball. For cockroaches the baric acid is the poison. The balls to place in inaccessible places for domestic animals.

Bugs are vitally important parts of all ecosystems…decomposers, predators, pollinators, etc. We’re the only species who has created homes that do their best to exclude nature and when any does manage to sneak inside we feel compelled to poison it. Is this really a view that something called ‘Greenversations’ should be promoting?

I too am an environmental educator and a high school science/environmental science/biology teacher, and do wrestle with what to do about insects that serve as disease vectors–but, in the end, that too is one of their most important environmental niches.
