Animals of Australia

Some people are not at home with animals, especially wildlife, but I believe that this is mostly out of unfamiliarity and fear. When you’re about it a lot, you tend to appreciate the exposure.

Echidna, Spiny Anteater, Tachyglossidae

As a young child, the main types of wildlife I was subjected to, in their natural surroundings, were brown and black snakes, and kangaroos. I loved the roos, watching them in the paddocks, despite them being cursed by the farmers for eating all the crops.

Living on a tropical island in North Queensland for a few years left me regularly exposed to green tree snakes and pythons, neither of which can be life threatening. The tree snakes wound their way up through the forest trees at all kinds of angles. I found them graceful. The pythons were enormous. Walking island paths with friends late at night, it was not unusual to have to await a python to finish crossing the road in front of us, and being unable to see either end. I grew to love them, even though it still always breaks my heart to see them confined as pets.

Nearby on the mainland, a buddy and I were chased one day by a huge goanna as we unknowingly ventured too close to her home. A good reminder that most of us share this Earth.

In the Northern Territory, there was no swimming in the McArthur River near Borroloola because of crocs. It’s wild country up there. One of my tasks at a nearby hotel, which was really more like a bush camp, and a rough one at that, was to remove the green tree frogs from the cistern of the bathrooms every day. After doing this once and seeing them all back the following day, I realised what a futile effort it was, so left them in peace. They simply hung on with their webbed feet when the water was flushed down to the loo.

Perth attracted its sunsets over the Indian Ocean and with that, dolphins galore. Whales were plentiful during the right season. It was understandably beautiful.

While living up in the Gold Coast hinterlands, there were kookaburras landing on the veranda each day, in addition to peacocks roaming freely in the bush down the back.

Backing onto Cooper Park in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, my delights were the golden orb spiders, with webs so strong you could lift them to go under, and the lizards. I enjoy watching lizards.

Among the most prolific homes for wildlife though was from the bush in Northern NSW. Koalas were so abundant that you could walk out the back door and search up in the trees, with a good probability of seeing one, or standing on the front veranda and carrying a photo of one not far away. However while it was quite beautiful and intimate to be able to have koalas living so nearby, there is nothing quiet or gentle about their lovemaking. What a racket they make.

This home also had a surplus of lizards and snakes. After being there for over a year and imagining there was a snake in a little alcove near the door, I came to finally meet this monster one morning as I was heading off to work. Down she slid on the veranda and was enormous, majestically so. We arrived to see her often then.

One of my favourite swimming spots is a river about 30 minutes from Tamworth. This place has saved me a couple of times, during the darkest periods of my life. The platypus is a shy and gentle river swimmer but since I was often out there alone, making Raccoon Sounds if sitting by the lender writing, I managed to watch them a couple of times at close range. I felt quite special for such a gift.

Sadly lots of people only see wildlife in zoos or as road kill, where kangaroos, wallabies or wombats have ventured onto the roads and been hit by a vehicle. Wombats do not stand a chance really, as they slowly waddle across. My uncle once had a wombat. She was known as Wendy the wombat. As an adult Wendy took herself off to live in the nearby bush. But returned a few years later to say hello with her entire family, then toddled off back to the bush. What a gorgeous thing.

This morning while driving up to the nearby village, I was saddened to find a dead wallaby beside the road and the body of her babe that was thrown out of its pouch, while still an embryo actually, no fur yet covering its little body.

I do see a lot of live wallabies here too though thankfully. They are sweet little animals.

Last week while on the phone being interviewed for a vegan magazine, I watched a red-belly black snake slither past me, only a few metres away. They are quite gentle, the red-bellies, though still not to be trifled with because of their venom.

I’ve written more about possums in my article ‘Furry Friends’. I love the cheeky things.

Green frogs leave their droppings on my veranda some nights and as I write this, two baby ones are on the window.

Lizards hang out in the sun on the rickety bridge across the creek and hide underneath whenever we drive it over.

Among the most effective documentaries I’ve ever seen is called Earthlings and is available online. It is incredibly confronting as it seems at man’s dependence on the animal world for food, clothes, entertainment and research. Yet despite the tragic reality of what you may view, it is also a gorgeous film in its own way since it reminds us all of the beauty of animals and of their right to live on the Earth too. I strongly recommend this documentary to anyone.

We share the Earth with each these creatures. It’s their home too. Wildlife is not to be feared, but respected.

When I look out the window here in a wallaby on the drive, frogs on the window and lizards down on the bridge, I’m in great company.

Yes, I am blessed. All of us are.

Indoor or outdoor

There are two ways to find a real tan – you can do outside in sunlight, or you can do inside of a tanning booth at a salon. Each method of tanning has its own benefits and weaknesses:

Indoor Tanning -It allows you to control the amount of time you spend in sunlight, ideally to reduce burning. Additionally, it lets you tan during winter when it is too cold to do outdoors. Tanning booths however can be more dangerous, especially when they’re used too often.
Outdoor Tanning – It is arguably more enjoyable. You can play sports or enjoy the water, tanning in the process. It also may not be quite as dangerous on a UV basis, in terms of how much UV exposure you receive in a similar quantity of time. But outdoor tanning is also inexact, since your whole body isn’t exposed to UV rays at any given time. Additionally, it is very easy to spend too long in the sun and get a severe burn, since there is less control when you are tanning.
Clearly there are many different differences between these two tanning procedures. However, there are an assortment of similarities as well.

Perhaps the most apparently similarity is that both provide you the identical tanning ability. Both use UV rays that allow your body to promote melanin production and change the color of your skin.


Naturally, another similarity is that with both systems it is possible to burn and burn harshly. In tanning booths at tanning salons you have a far better chance of controlling your own time in the machine so that burning is less likely, but just because it is less likely does not mean it’s impossible. Burning remains always possible, particularly if you misjudge the length of time you ought to be in the booth.

3. Tanning Difficulty

If you have an issue tanning outdoors because of mild skin, etc., you will also have the identical problem tanning indoors. Similarly, if you’re someone that freckles rather than tans, you are still going to freckle rather than tan in the tanning booth. The UV rays provided by tanning booths are identical to the UV rays provided by the sun.

Overall Differences

The reality is that tanning booths and the sun are both exactly the same concerning their effects on your skin and body. The differences lie in convenience and enjoyment, as well as degree of control. Sun tanning may be more fun, as well as free, but you have less control over your tan. Tanning booths provide you with a great deal of control which can help reduce your likelihood of burning, but it costs money and has the exact same health risks. Overall they are both decent options for the ones that want a tan and which you choose is based largely on your personal preference.

Which is Safer – Indoor or Outdoor Tanning?

Tanning can not be considered safe. Tans themselves are due to skin damage, and as such you can’t get a tan unless you’re damaging your skin. Clearly then there isn’t any such thing as a safe tan, as a tan is the result of your skin being unsafe.

Yet there is no denying that people like to tan, although it may be causing your skin damage, the results make you seem much healthier. As a result, tanning will always continue to be a popular procedure for improving one’s beauty. So the next step is to figure out which method of tanning is safer, so at the very least you can reduce the amount of damage you receive to your skin. There are two ways to get a real tan on your body:

Outdoors in Sunlight
Inside in a Tanning Booth
Both of these subject your skin to UV rays, causing the damage necessary to give yourself a tan. So which one of both of these options is safest?

Tanning beds provide you with a variety of benefits that you don’t get from the sun. The simplest benefit is control. When you are in sunlight, the amount of UV rays and the time spent tanning your body are in constant flux. You’re probably moving around, there are people walking by (creating shadows), there are clouds – there is not any way to measure just how much sun you’ve received.

Tanning beds give you total control over your tan. There are no shadows, and there is no guesswork. If you place the tanning bed to 10 minutes, then you are getting UV rays throughout your body for exactly 10 minutes. That control can certainly help you ensure you burn less and reduce any unnecessary sun damage.

But, that control also has a price tag. The UV rays that tanning beds shower on your body are worse for your skin than the sun. Your skin receives a lot more harm in the 10 minutes you’re in a tanning booth than it would during an equal 10 minutes in sunlight. Similarly, while you can control your UV exposure in the tanning booth, you will still have to spend time outdoors, and as you are outside you are going to receive additional damage to the beams you obtained in the tanning bed. Unless you’re constantly slathering a very higher SPF in your body, there will be times where tanning isn’t in your control.

Overall Thoughts

Tanning beds offer greater control, but at the risk of harsher UV exposure, while time in the sun is not as harmful, but is prone to error. The safer method is going to be the method that you believe you can control the best in order to reduce unnecessary sun exposure. If you believe you could avoid the sun’s damage, a tanning booth might be better. If you believe that you won’t overdo your sun exposure, including leaving the sun even before you have received as much as required, sun tanning is a better option.

Wax hair removal

Our bodies are covered with hair which grows in different cycles. Some may be dark and course, while some may be so nice that you can’t see them visibly. There are many ways of removing the hair from various parts of our body and waxing is but 1 way.

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes unwanted hair from the root. The new hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks depending on our hair growth and cycles. Some must be performed by a licensed cosmetologist or esthetician. If waxing is done regularly for many years, permanent hair reduction might be achieved. The different types of waxing that can be performed are:

Eyebrow Wax

Bikini Wax

Male Genital Wax

Leg Wax

Abdomen Wax

Back Wax

Foot Wax

Chest Wax

Entire Body Wax

Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a fast movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair. Another method utilizes hard wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is used somewhat thickly and without a fabric or paper strips. The wax then hardens as it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a tech without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is quite beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.

These areas are of particular concern because of sensitive skin that can be severely damaged if waxed. Regions of the body that should just be waxed by a licensed professional comprise the genitals as well as the nipples. The bikini zone, eyebrows and lip area are popular with the girls for waxing.

Pros and Cons

There are numerous benefits of waxing compared to other forms of baldness. It’s an effective method to remove considerable amounts of hair at one time. This method is long-lasting. Hair in darkened areas will take between two to eight weeks to return. When hair is removed or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be observed at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.

There are also many disadvantages to waxing too. Even though the pain does not last long, it can be very uncomfortable. Another drawback of waxing is that the cost: waxing is generally performed by a licensed cosmetology, and it can be quite expensive. You can purchase do-it-yourself waxing equipment, but they may be tricky to use on yourself on some parts of your body. Hair removal is not permanent. This could also lead to the hair growth to be more noticeable and make different techniques of hair removal more challenging. Fortunately, this risk is minimal when the waxing is done properly. Another problem with waxing is that some folks experience ingrown hairs, red bumps, and minor bleeding. This is more likely to happen when waxing areas where the hair is thick, especially the first couple of times when the follicles are strongest. While usually impossible to eliminate, regular exfoliating can reduce ingrown hairs together with an application of astringent or a combination of astringent and oil (typically azulene or baby oil).

Unless you have very sensitive skin, waxing is a fast and relatively easy alternative to tweezing your eyebrows. Even though it’s generally better to get eyebrows waxed professionally it can be expensive – up to about $15 as a rule of thumb, although salons do vary.

Bikini Waxing

A Regular Bikini Wax removes the hair beyond the panty line. A Full Bikini Wax takes the sides of the bikini line deeper than a Regular Bikini Wax, and can also include waxing some hair on top to generate a more defined ‘triangle’ area, or trimming down the hair left briefer. A French Bikini Wax takes all the hair off in the front (except a small strip) and continues to right before the trunk. It doesn’t take hair off from the back like a Brazilian.

Brazilian or Hollywood Waxing

Most of the time a “landing strip” is left at the front (which is a tiny strip of closely-shorn hair), but many clients have all the hair removed. Costs at Beauty Salons may range anywhere from $25 to $100 or more.

The hair must be a certain length before it can be successfully waxed. It needs to be a quarter of an inch if it’s fine, and a half inch if it’s coarse. A down side is, you might encounter red bumps or ingrown hairs, which can be caused when hairs grow curled under the skin. As stated earlier you can avoid ingrown hairs with regular exfoliation and a scrub which has salicylic or glycolic acid.

It is now common for men as well as women to ask for Brazilian Waxing, so bikini waxing is no more gender-specific. The “Brazilian Wax” has recently been in the media because the state of New Jersey announced in the spring of 2007 it may prohibit “genital waxing” after a few residents were hospitalized with infections.

Male Body Waxing

Lots of people think that waxing any part of the male body is just for homosexual men, yet this isn’t correct. Heterosexual men in addition to homosexual men utilize some sort of body waxing service. There’s the possibility of bruising them, rupturing blood vessels, or you can actually tear their genitals! Male body waxing is properly done by two people — an expert licensed technician and the customer (the client usually helps by holding the skin taunt). However, the popular area for male waxing is the trunk and torso.

Health Concerns

Some doctors do not recommend waxing for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation because they are more prone to infection. Users of Retin-A, Renova, Diferin or Isotretinoin are advised not to have waxing done; these medications tend to irritate skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed. Never use wax to cracked or peeling skin or varicose veins. A womans tolerance to pain may be different at different times of their menstrual cycle. Women may experience increased sensitivity to pain during the week before menstruation. Because of this, many experienced estheticians urge that girls schedule waxing appointments for the week after menstruation, when pain tolerance is generally at its highest. Waxing rips the hair out of the skin and frequently causes pain. The pain is more intense in areas such as the genitals, especially for individuals that haven’t waxed before or that do not wax often. Redness and swelling also often occurs at the waxing site. Waxing in itself is a safe thing, but there are times when it is not safe to get waxed. When skin is sunburned it is bad to get a wax therapy. People with medical problems such as diabetes, chronic kidney or liver disease, skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, or weakened immune systems are advised not to get wax treatments at all. Notwithstanding, body waxing can be a great source of income for any salon or spa!

Avoiding the friend zone

Free stock photo of restaurant, businessman, man, people
How often have you spent weeks, or even months talking to that particular girl you like, then working up the courage to ask her out, just to hear those horrible words:

“Oh, you’re so sweet, but I don’t really see you in that manner.

If you hear that, it is like she has reached deep inside of your chest and ripped out your heart!

Hurts, does not it?

Here are the biggest mistakes that guys make and that you should avoid doing:

1 – They never tell the women their true intentions!

This is the most common reason why guys eventually get buddy zoned.

They like the woman; they want to go on a date with her, have fun, sleep with her, and eventually begin a relationship. But they’re so afraid of rejection that they always skirt around the problem, never clearly stating what they need and letting the girl know that they really like her romantically!

That is why it’s always best to allow the girl know that you’re interested in her romantically, and that you’d like to go on a date with her.

2 – They treat her like a princess!

If you never disagree with the woman, never express your own opinion, always feign interest in the topics she brings up, even if they don’t interest you – that the woman will notice this and won’t honor you.

If you’re constantly afraid of offending the girl or making her mad, always “walking on eggshells” so to speak – she’ll see that you are a spineless man and lose all attraction towards you.

Bad Boys don’t fear rejection, are not afraid of offending people, of living life, of judgment from others. They don’t give a rat’s behind about what anyone thinks of them and they don’t filter their ideas when they talk – they tell it like it is.

That is incredibly attractive to the vast majority of girls, and exactly the reason why most women fall for these so-called “rebels”.

3 – They always doubt themselves!

Self-doubt is one of the most unattractive qualities that a person can possess.

If you can’t make decisions, question your every move, hesitate when speaking to the woman, touching her, leading her, and other similar matters – you are not going to get anywhere!

Women don’t like guys who are wracked with insecurities and self-esteem difficulties. It’s best that you learn how to get those things handled!

4 – They bore women half to death!

This is another enormous mistake that most men make.

When talking to girls, they start asking all of the boring, and uninspired questions like “Where are you from?” , “Where did you study?”

You are there to flirt, have a fun, interesting, and exciting conversation with her and not to run an interview!

Refrain from asking the things that a thousand other guys have asked her and learn some much-needed social skills that spice up a dialog.

Don’t bore her to death and demonstrate that you’re both going to have a fun time when she accepts your invitation!

If you follow this advice and always make your goals clear, you are never going to land in the friend zone!

At worst, you will get rejected and know where you stand with her. Then you can quickly move on to another girl and stop wasting time!

Good luck!

I don’t like Keurig

All of us get awesome wedding gifts. One of mine forty years back was a Farberware coffee pot. It was a 8 cup perk and it cranked out wonderful coffee for a year or so. It met its’ passing through Babcie, my mother-in-law. She was a devoted immediate coffee drinker. So, the weekend that my parents came to visit, she filled the Farberware with water and set it on the stove to warm the water. She wanted us to have fresh coffee when we got up, but confused the two ways of making it.

Coffee, Maker, Pot, Drip, Auto, Caffeine

My dad was first up. He hit the top of the staircase and smelled the acrid odor of the burning pot, flew down to the kitchen, grabbed the kettle and flung it out the back door before it burst into flames. The pot got replaced until the weekend ended, but Babcie never attempted to use it.

We continued to use this pot for years. Morning coffee together was a ritual and significant to the start of our day. However, my husband was an aficionado of new products. Finally, the Mr. Coffee came out. I received one as a birthday present, but before I could return/exchange a thing that I really did not want, he started it, tossed the box, and proceeded to make the initial pot. However, you understand about these pots. The first cup is good, but the successive cups get bitter and the pot doesn’t hold the heat. I put up with it for as long as I could before the Farberware came back from the closet.

Fast forward through those forty years. The husband is gone, the house cleared of children and I am home with my Farberware merchandise. I replaced the 8 cup somewhere along the line with a four cup version. But my tastes have changed. I no longer need that 2-3 cup jolt of caffeine to start my day. I cut down the amount of water to just those two cups and even then tossed half a cup. Maybe it was time to proceed.

I have an awesome sister. She knows what I need or want before I do. She gifted me with a Keurig K40 for Christmas. With its’ single cup dispenser and no reservoir to the water to get stale in, it seemed ideal. I could make a cup and ignore the second. No fuss, muss or waste. I purchased reusable pods so I could use my usual coffee brand, and might control how strong to make the coffee. It was excellent. It was perfect for about three months. After a time, the coffee seemed poorer so I just added more reasons to the pod. I then noticed that I could slug it down in one gulp without burning myself. So I started putting it in the microwave to heat it up to the right temperature. Now, this was wrong. Three weeks use and it was running out of steam. So I called the Keurig help line. The trouble was that the water wasn’t heating up enough to run it through the grounds. I was getting weak cold coffee. Their answer was to send them the jigger that holds the pod, which makes it unusable, and they replaced the K40.

While awaiting the new arrival, the trusty Farberware made it back to the counter. K40 number two arrived about a week later. It had the exact same problem, only it happened much sooner than it did with number one. I made the call to the help line, went through the process of cleaning the pot together with the representative though it had hardly been used. I sent back the jigger that holds the bunny, they sent me three. Wouldn’t you figure the problem would be solved? Three times is the charm, right? Well in just a week, K40 number three developed the same issue. I called the help line again. This time he wanted me to buy and clean the machine with their distinctive coffee pot cleaner and get back to them. It took a day or two to get some, but I did as requested, even though the pot was less than a week old. It didn’t help. As this was the third K40 that went south, the agent authorized upgrading my coffee pot to the K45. It’s a reservoir on the side, but still has an interior reservoir which you cannot empty. It just seems nasty to have that there, but I had control of the external reservoir. I had a friend visiting who loved his coffee, so we made up a few single cups to enjoy that afternoon. I had it programmed to shut off when not in use. As we sat and visited, a peculiar acrid odor came to the room. Investigating the kitchen, I found the K45 was now smoking. The auto shut off had not worked and the home could have gone up in flames had I not been right there. I found no reason to clean a system that was burning up and had been used just the one time. He saw the reason to my objection and had me return the entire thing this time. Have you ever attempted to put one of those odd shaped items back in their packaging? It took both of us the rest of the day to figure that out.

So, now Keurig number five has arrived. It’s another brand new K45. It works perfectly, giving cup after cup of freshly brewed coffee. And you know what? I really don’t like it. There is something about the taste that’s different. I attempted to get used to it, but I guess at my age, change is sometimes tough. The K45 has gone back into the box and the Farberware perks my morning coffee. I guess the K45 will end up on a lawn sale table daily.

Want curly hair?

There are so many people in the world who want to curl their hair in a different yet unique manner but keep in mind that in case you want to do it quick then there are numerous ways of doing this. But all you will have to do is find the one which suits you and your needs.

So if you want to learn a way to get curly hair without worrying too much then you will need to read the rest of the article below.

Steps on making your hair curled

White and Blue Hair Curlier

First step- If you’ve a big event coming up or a big occasion then what you can do is a curl your hair. So first what you will have to do is wet your hair a little and apply on a little bit of gel.

Iphone or Galaxy?

When it comes to communicating and obtaining information, these have replaced the background that necessitates the use of CPU and has been commonly used before. Well, we have both of the most popular mobile operating systems, Android and iOS, which are bringing competition to the market and making people go crazy about them with the highest expectations on point.

Android is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and was created by Google. Perhaps a difference that’s widely known between both of these mobile operating systems has something to do with hardware choices. IOS only runs with Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad. Meanwhile, Android is available in different mobile devices that are made by various companies. As a result of this, Android appears to be more accessible than iOS due to the fact that it supplies a whole lot better flexibility. Another difference is that, IOS-manufactured devices are limited to share photographs, and other multimedia files with a fellow iOS device only. But, you could still use its built-in Bluetooth function to wirelessly connect your iPhone to other compatible devices, like you pc and laptop. Android does not have such restrictions as iOS has. One thing which iOS is more advantageous of is that it enables its users to upgrade to a newer version. Every time that the operating system has released new versions, users will be notified and are provided with the latest version.

To sum it up, even though the differences are clearly said, we must admit that they’re still and no doubt, making the market on fire for years now. Every corner of the planet is crazy over phones and tablets which are dominated by these two operating systems. And every store is flooding with clients that are cunningly wanting gadgets which are upgraded with these mobile operating systems. Undoubtedly, these two cellular operating systems are both accommodating and user-friendly dependent on the ramifications of the sales and markets. Truly, they have changed the mechanics of this society, from simple to lavish, plain to lively and the like. But the most important thing there is, in every way, people become fulfilled and responsible with all of their endeavors with or without up-to-date systems or machines.

The words dominant and recessive are terms used to describe inheritance patterns of certain characteristics. This is particularly used in humans. Humans have two copies of each chromosome that come from the parents. Due to this, humans have two variations of genes and these diverse kinds of genes are called alleles. These can either be dominant or recessive are used to describe the inheritance patterns of certain characteristics. These terms may also be used to refer to the probability of a trait being inherited to the offspring, such as bronchial disorders. If a person inherits a dominant attribute, it will show up rather than other phenotype.

A dominant trait will only reveal its phenotype on the offspring if dominant alleles reveal more than recessive although it only has one copy of allele. In different conditions, if the alleles are different it is called hybrid. It is referred to as hybrid because of the two unique alleles; it isn’t purebred. When both alleles are there, among them will cover up another one. The one that “masks”, or the more powerful one, is called dominant. If the allele for having brown eyes is dominant over blue eye, then just one copy of this allele is needed for the individual to have blue eyes. This leads the person expressing that trait because this certain gene is being more “dominant” than the other one.

Recessive alleles can only show its phenotype when it is paired, or combined with another allele that’s identical to itself. In simpler terms, recessive alleles can only be visible if the individual has two copies of this allele. Having two alleles to demonstrate a certain gene is referred to as homozygous. As mentioned, if the two alleles are present, the dominant will conceal the weaker the allele, or the recessive. As a result, this trait is not as common as it being dominant.

To conclude, the significance of dominant traits is that an allele is “more powerful” into the recessive allele because it is going to present its phenotype on the offspring. Heterozygous is when a gene has two distinct alleles of a gene. The definition of recessive is that it is allele which phenotype won’t appear on the offspring due to it only having one allele. Homozygous is when the gene has an individual has two of the same alleles.

Florida Bat maternity season

Florida is home to at least thirteen residential species of bats. They’re an awesome creature–the only mammals who can fly! Their wings are extremely like a human hand, with joints that may close and grip. They exert little to no attempt doing this, because gravity keeps their talons closed.They have many useful qualities that humans may overlook. A nocturnal animal, bats will eat tens of thousands of insects in 1 night. If bats are living in your property they could significantly reduce the quantity of mosquitoes and other bothersome insects. The way they find insects and other sources of food is quite unique. When they make a sound, the sound wave goes out and bounces back from the first thing it comes across. The direction of the returning sound wave indicates where an object (like an insect) is and how large it is.

Bat, Australia, Wildlife, Nature, Tree

Another helpful component of bats is their stool (called guano). Guano has an abundant amount of nitrogen, making it a wonderful fertilizer. Certain enzymes can be extracted from bat guano and used in laundry detergent and other cleaning products.Bats contribute greatly to the environment, and it is important for them to have a place to call home. They normally live in trees or trees, but sometimes they become comfortable under the eaves of a persons house, or even inside the house.

It’s dangerous for bats to live inside the house for a few important reasons.The first reason is that bats can carry rabies. Though uncommon, it’s a possibility, and if a rabid bat were to become frightened and bite somebody, the person could contract rabies. A rabid bat is usually signaled by increased aggression and daytime action. Bats should not be handled. The second reason is that if bat guano collects from the home, someone could contract Histoplasmosis. Inhaling the spores of the fungus can cause serious respiratory issues that could be deadly.

Nuisance Wildlife Relocation will do a comprehensive search of the home for any openings or holes where a bat could get through. A one time bat door will be set at every opening so that the bat can get out, but not back in. When dusk hits, the bats will fly out to hunt, and be unable to return. Once all of the bats have left the structure, all openings will be permanently sealed to prevent any further entry.This method is totally humane and no bats are harmed during this procedure. This company prides itself on treating animals with the respect they deserve. If a bat is found indoors, Nuisance Wildlife Relocation is available to solve the problem.
