Night butterflies are insects closely related to butterflies. Both belong to the order Lepidoptera. The differences between butterflies and night butterflies/moths is more than just taxonomy. Scientists have identified some 200,000 species of moths worldwide and suspect there may be as many as five times that amount.
Information about Wood Wasps
The names wood wasp and horntail describe several kinds of wood-boring insects in the order Hymenoptera, family Siricidae. Of greatest concern are the large, non-stinging wasps that normally are attracted to and complete their life cycles in newly dead or dying conifer trees.
Information about Nutria Coypu
The nutria, Myocastor coypus, is a large semi-aquatic rodent. The generic name is derived from two Greek words (mys, for mouse, and kastor, for beaver) that translate as mouse beaver. The specific name coypus is the Latinized form of coypu, a name in the language of the Araucanian Indians of south-central Chile and adjacent parts of Argentina for an aquatic mammal that was possibly this species.
Prevent infestation with Nutria Coypu
The nutria (Myocastor coypus) is a large, dark-colored, semiaquatic rodent that is native to southern South America. It can be easily mistaken with beaver (Castor canadensis) or a muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus), especially when it is swimming.
Prevent infestation with Night Butterfly
If you suspect that your home and its surroundings might be infested by the night butterfly and its caterpillars, you just need to take a close look at your plants. If you notice that your plants have irregular chew bites, then you might be infested.
Prevent infestation with Scarlet Fever
Scarlet fever is a bacterial infection that most commonly affects children between the ages of 5 and 15. The bacteria group A Streptococcus causes the condition. This is the same bacteria that causes strep throat.
Information about Scarlet Fever
Scarlet fever, or scarlatina as some might know it, is a bacterial illness, a group A Streptococcus (group A Strep) infection that can develop in some people who have strep throat. Scarlet fever mainly affects children between the ages of 5 and 15 and it features a bright red rash that covers most of the body, accompanied by a high fever, a sore throat, headaches and swollen lymph nodes.
Information about Clothes Moths
The moth of clothes are insects also known as the common clothes moth, webbing clothes moth, or simply as the clothing moth. When it comes to the damage it does as a pest, the moth itself is not the one doing the most damage, but its larvae are the ones that take nourishment from clothing, thus leaving behind the specific holes that warn you of their presence.
Information about Moles
Moles are small mammals that belong to the Talpidae in Soricomorpha family. They are most often found in North America, Asia and Europe. With a cylindrical shaped body, they have soft fur, small eyes and ears that are basically invisible, short legs that are really strong, and really large paws that are adapted for digging.
Information about Mole Crickets
Mole crickets, also known as cricket moles, lawn crickets, or flying moles, are insects that belong to the family Gryllotalpidae of the order Orthoptera, along with grasshoppers, locusts, and normal crickets.
Information about Lice
Lice are parasites members of the order Phthiraptera, that live off of blood and are the most known parasites of humans, living in their hair, really close to the scalp. They can also easily infest birds and other mammals, and can be vectors of diseases, such as typhus. Out of almost 5,000 identified species, 4,000 of them affect mostly birds, and 800 usually infest mammals.
Information about Mold
A mold/mould is actually a fungus. Contrary to popular opinion, the term ‘mold’ is actually used to refer to a large number of fungal species. However, because they are considered to be microbes, molds do not form a specific taxonomic or phylogenetic group.
