In the wild, it’s about survival of the fittest, or in the case of insects, the craftiest. They can fall prey to various predators and being small they have to up their game and use clever insect defense mechanisms to survive. We had a look at these interesting methods insects use to help them guard themselves against their enemies. #Insects #NaturalWorld #DefenseMechanisms #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica
There are a staggering 120,000 types of flies documented by scientists, but there might be a lot more. On the surface, most flies are harmless, even though extremely irritating, but due to their unsanitary nature, they can spread various dangerous diseases, including malaria, salmonella, tuberculosis, cholera and even anthrax!

Service Master takes all the necessary steps when administering our pest control solutions, but keeping your home or business pest free does not stop there! Pest Management really is a partnership between pest control companies and clients, who also have to do their part, or the problems will persist. The photo below illustrates a situation where a client had a huge fly problem and even though we set a temporary fly trap, their staff kept opening the window above it where the flies came in.
BE(E) MINDFUL OF BE(E)UTIFUL BEES! Not all insects are harmful to you or your environment. We NEVER kill bees. They aren’t pests...they are super pollinators!

#DidYouKnow Flies, like butterflies, taste their food using their feet! A study of fly taste receptors at UC Berkeley by neuroscientist Kristin Scott and her colleagues showed that fruit flies also have receptors devoted to sweet and bitter tastes just like humans. The receptors in flies are mounted on bristles scattered all over the body, including the legs, the wings, the food-sucking proboscis and the egg-laying ovipositor. Now you know some new big words - go on - impress your friends!
The first animals sent into space were fruit flies aboard a U.S.-launched V-2 rocket on 20 February 1947. The purpose of the experiment was to explore the effects of radiation exposure at high altitudes. The rocket reached 109 km in 3 minutes and 10 seconds, past both the U.S. Air Force 50-mile and the international 100 km definitions of the boundary of space. The Blossom capsule was ejected and successfully deployed its parachute. The fruit flies were recovered alive.
