Toronto, ON – GTA Toronto Pest Control one of the leading pest control companies in Toronto is today advising that this is the time of year when mice are looking to move indoors as the temperatures begin to drop. Consequently, as prevention is better than cure they are strongly advising that now is the time to evaluate and implement your anti-mice solutions stopping the problem happening before it even starts. GTA Toronto Pest Control has many loyal and satisfied customers, which can be verified by reading all of the reviews for GTA Toronto Pest Control.

The key thing to remember with mice is that they are like weeds. Once established, they breed rapidly, they can live virtually anywhere, and can be very difficult to eradicate once established. They can enter a home through a space as small as of an inch across, so the first part of the process should be to examine your property for any small holes that mice could take advantage of, and then where possible seal those holes.

The amount of damage and destruction that a family of mice can cause to a property can be huge, said Mubashir Vance of GTA Toronto Pest Control. That does not include the risks to the health of the occupants, which is why we are always keen to help our clients prevent mice getting into the home in the first place. As the colder weather approaches, thats when the mice start to move indoors, which is why we are determined to get this message out there. As a pest control company, we take great pride in providing excellent customer service, and we want to prevent our customers from having to deal with the hassle and stress of a mouse infestation.

Leading Pest Control Company Advises That Fall Is The Perfect Time To Implement Mouse Prevention Procedures – Digital Journal

Halifax North Memorial Public Library has closed twice in the last week after staff discovered bed bugs on a piece of library furniture and on CDs and DVDs that had been returned.

The Gottingen Street library was closed for spraying last week and again on Thursday morning.

“This is a very rare occurrence for the library but any public space is vulnerable to these types of pests,” Terry Gallagher,facilities director atHalifax Public Libraries, toldCBC’sMaritime Noon.”They hitchhike very easily on people or other things.”

Gallagher said the library has since reopened and professionals found no sign of any bed bugs.

“We’ve identified that this is not a facility issue, these are things coming to us,” he said.

Gallagher said they have a “very rigorousprotocol” when it comes to dealing with insects or pests. He said all staff are trained at detecting various pests and recognizing the signs.

If an insect is found, Gallagher said theprotocol isto trap it using clear tape. It’s then sent away to pest control professionals, andif it’s a bed bug, the library is then closed and sprayed.

“We’re very vigilant on examining materials that come into the library,” he said. “We really care. We want to make sure the community is coming in and visiting the library.”

Dave Holland, owner ofHolland’s Pest Control Services in Halifax, told Maritime Noonit’s not uncommon for bed bugs to pop upin public places.

“Any place where there’s more people coming or going you have a higher risk of getting bed bugs. So yes, you can pick them up at a mall, you can pick them up on a bus, you can pick them up just about anywhere,” he said.

Holland said bed bugs, which are nocturnal, typically bite at night. Once they feed, he said, they tend to hide somewhere”relatively close to their meal” and rest and do so in places like book bindings.

He said if they aren’t spotted early on and a pregnant female gets into the picture, it could lead to a public outbreak.

“Sometimes people don’t realize they have those bed bugs,” he said.”About 30 per cent of the population has no effect from a bug bite, so they’re the ultimate nemesis when it comes to bugs.”

Q. Do spiders bite people out of fear, hunger or curiosity?

A. It is a misconception that spiders are habitually out to bite human beings. Spiders prefer to feed on invertebrates, often paralyzed with venom evolved for that purpose. Bites to humans, when they do occur, are most likely defensive.

Usually spiders are not even able to chomp on people, partly because the arachnids fangs are too small and weak. What victims take to be spider bites often are caused by something else entirely, like wasps, ants, bedbugs, an infection or even thorn pricks.

The brown recluse is one of the few species capable of a harmful, tissue-killing bite. But after reviewing case reports, Canadian researchers found that in no instance has a brown recluse actually been caught in the act of biting; none was captured or identified afterward.

Despite the persistent diagnoses, the scientists noted, brown recluse spiders are not even found in Canada.

Even if brown recluse spiders occasionally found their way into Canada, the statistical probability of people being bitten by immigrant spiders is effectively zero, the study concluded.

In a review article in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2005, the authors also found that many reports of brown recluse spider bites in humans were poorly supported by evidence. question@nytimes.com

That ‘Spider Bite’? Blame It on Something Else – New York Times

York Regions charitable organizations arent being stuck up when they refuse the donation of certain items.

Each organization that accepts donations, from Vaughan to Georgina, has policies surrounding acceptable items. While donors might feel slighted by these organizations refusing donations of certain things, there are reasons behind the rules.

Some people donate items because they love them and want that item to be continued to be loved, Rose of Sharons development director Rachel Agnoluzzi said.

The organization that supports young mothers across the region primarily relies on monetary donations to improve lives going forward, however, it does have Roseys Closet for gently used donations.

Often people try to donate car seats, cribs and more with the best of intentions but with those items comes liability because the safety standards of such items changes so often, according to Agnoluzzi.

Those who wish to donate items should check online or call the organization before doing so because any items left on the front stoop cost money and resources to dispose of.

Salvation Army Thrift Stores accept donations daily through the Donor Welcome Centres. Donations are reviewed on site and while some get a second chance in the store, some do not, according to a Salvation Army spokesperson.

Items the stores cannot accept include used mattresses, box springs, carpets, hazardous materials like paint, propane tanks, barbecues, infant gear like car seats, cribs and strollers, tires and auto parts due to health and safety regulations.

Many childrens items such as car seats, have an expiry date and sometimes cribs and strollers are subject to recalls due to safety concerns. Used mattresses are a breeding ground for mould, bacteria and unwanted guests such as bedbugs and dust mites, all of which can lead to a variety of health issues.

The stores also receive clothing that is torn, stained and overly worn. While these textiles cant be resold in the store, funds are generated by selling them to cloth graders who turn them into rags, sell to buyers who make upholstery stuffing and carpet padding.

The buyer is a young woman. She managed to secure a quick closing: shell move in this Friday, just two weeks after the sale.

In part because the building is battling a years-old bedbug rumour, the units are on the affordable side. The seller rejected two bully offers, which were conditional and too low. Five more offers came in on offer day, of which three were competitive. After one round of improvements, the seller accepted the highest one, at $52,000 over asking.

Kindness helps

Regarding the letter It never hurts to help (Aug. 22).

On July 2, I was walking in Springbank Park when I fell hard and broke my elbow and an ankle. Every single person who passed stopped to offer help. One woman placed her white sweater on the ground under my head to make me comfortable. Her husband went off to seek assistance. Two young Hispanic men carried me to a bench and offered to carry me a mile to the car if necessary. Several people remained until the ambulance came for me. While recovering from my injuries, I have had many doors held open for me by caring Londoners.

I hope the couple from Calgary read this letter and see how much I appreciated their kindness. I will always smile at the memory of being carried by muscular, young Latinos.

Thank you to all for your kindness.

Furniture needed

A family of two brothers in their late 50s and a grandchild who have been renting for the last 40 years have been informed by the landlord they must be out by Oct. 1, as the place is being sold. They have found another place for Oct. 1. But in the meantime they found out their current place is infested with bed bugs. So all furniture was thrown out. Both men have bad back problems and cannot work full-time. They will need furniture come Oct. 1. Right now the three are sleeping on air mattresses.

I will store any donated furniture in my garage till the date needed. All kitchen, living room and bedroom furniture is needed. Please contact me at 226-456-7444 or 519-686-4308. Thanks.

Re. Its time to treat rail passengers better than freight, Opinion, Aug. 25

After reading Greg Gormicks guest column on the Via Rail problems, I am inclined to write a note about some of my experiences on the train.

First let me say, it is the most civilized mode of travel ever; the food is excellent, the staff are a blessing and the trip across Canada, which we have done twice, is just wonderful.

However, the delays due to freight trains are really disturbing and inconvenient as well. At one point in a return trip from the Maritimes, we were 12 hours behind schedule. Granted, we were well looked after by the Via staff but timetables are made for a good reason.

Given the cost of travelling by train, passengers should take priority over crude oil and sundries.

Re. Province facing flak on daylight savings bill, Aug. 28

I must agree with the comments regarding the time and money that is being wasted on the debate about scrapping daylight savings time.

There are most definitely more important issues that need our politicians attention. I smile at the way the poll results are presented with the statement that 76 per cent of respondents are in favour of scrapping the twice-yearly time change. However, that is only 76 per cent of 13,600 people that replied which equates to 10,336 Albertans in a population of roughly four million that are influencing this decision.

Rob Pritchard, St. Albert

Re. Maybe Fildebrandt had the right idea, Letters, Aug. 23

The suggestion to rent out the suites used by MLAs seems reasonable enough.

However, when security concerns are considered this may not be a good ideas. Listening devices and hidden cameras are obvious concerns. In terms of health concerns, there are bed bugs and attempted poisonings.

The proposal does not seem worth it considering the risks and ongoing costs of dealing with them.

Richard McFarlane, Edmonton

Hiring a dentist is like hiring most other professionals. No matter what your income level, if you are concerned about prices, (including co-pays) shop around.

Call different dentists and ask what they charge for basic services such as cleaning and and fillings which will give you some idea of their fees for other services. You will find some dentists are cheaper than others. Smaller clinics with less overhead are generally cheaper. I had a dentist once whose fees jumped considerably when she moved a newer, fancier location.

As for seniors on fixed incomes, many qualify for the Alberta Seniors Benefit which covers $5,000 worth of dental work over a five-year period. If you are a senior and unaware of this program, call to see if you qualify.

I hope this helps since it is unlikely the government will act any time soon regarding this issue.

Linda Parker, Edmonton

Re. Sustainable beefpilot aimed at combating criticism, Aug. 17

I applaud the beef industry for its first attempt to take a long hard look at how bad their industry has become.

The greed and ignorance of meat producers has created tainted beef. And over the past decades this has created an attitude of acceptance of poor practice and diminishing quality.

I recently watched the documentary What the Health. I now avoid not only beef, but all meat products. I refuse to eat chemical-laden meat. The callous treatment of animals and pumping up profits by using chemicals that are potentially carcinogenic has turned me off.

But my beef is also with Health Canada. Under their watch, little has been done to educate the consumer of the dangers of consuming the additives in meat. Agriculture ministers have turned a blind eye to the conditions the animals have had to endure before being slaughtered in some of the most inhumane methods possible.

Start to push the meat industry to change; our health depends on it as do the animals subjected to pain and suffering their entire lives.
