And why is that? Is it because people with better teeth are better people? Not a chance (you ever meet a CEO for some of the businesses near you? Plenty of jerks. Plenty of great guys, too, but that doesn’t mean that being a CEO automatically makes you some sort of saint come down from above to lead your company to profit and what have you). It is because when someone has a symmetrical face and a well-aligned smile, you are going to be a lot more likely to trust them, no matter who they are. The fact is that such people are going to be able to convince others to follow them with a lot greater ease, and this is something that you should be looking to do if you are looking to be able to bring in a lot more money as an individual.

Residential Electricians Advice

With the onset of winter it is an alarming fact that the incidence of fires in our homes increases. Some fires are caused by defects in appliances as well as old household wiring, improper use of extension cords or overloaded circuits. If a few simple precautions are taken with the seasonal electrical appliances we use, so many of these fires could be prevented. Electric blankets and room heaters are both appliances that are stored away for most of the year and are only brought out during the cooler months.Electricians

There is nothing like the cosy warmth of an electric blanket in the winter but there are a few things to be aware of to ensure they remain safe to use.

Before the first use in winter carefully run your hands over the unfolded blanket to check for anything sharp (e.g. a wire that may have broken during storage).

Check the plug and cord for any visible signs of wear or damage and never use an electric blanket with scorch marks or exposed wires.To confirm your electric blanket is safe to use have it checked by a licensed electrical contractor. The dangers are too high to risk the safety of your family! electricians residential

If an electric blanket is older than 10 years consider throwing it away and buying a new one.

Never use an electric blanket if it is wet or creased and do not switch it on to dry it out.

Never use an electric blanket folded; always spread it out fully.

Always read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, and follow them.

Electric heaters are also the cause of many fires during winter, and it has been documented that almost one-third of Australians say they do not check the safety of their heating appliances at the beginning of winter. After many months in storage it is important to ensure any build-up of dust is removed before use. Once again, cords and plug tops need to be checked for damage or fraying. It is also concerning that many Australians choose to leave electrical appliances running while the home is unattended!

General Information about Ants-

Ant Control

General Information about Ants-

Ants are much more than a possible biting nuisance. They can cause millions of dollars in damage to structures each year. They can tunnel through wood, bite, strip insulation from electrical wires; causes short-circuits or fires, and also contaminate food. Because there are countless varieties of ants, we will discuss the common ones in Central Texas. Baits are generally the most effective treatment for getting rid of ants.ant control

Carpenter Ants:
General Information about Carpenter Ants-

The carpenter ant does not eat wood. They eat protein and sugar like most ants. Their only interest in wood is to tunnel and live in it.
They are foragers and farmers. They get live Aphids and milk them for honeydew. Once an aphid doesn’t produce anymore, they eat them.
There is only one queen per colony. She lays 15-20 eggs every 15 days.
At our company, we normally find them by their food sources (substance kicked out of tunnels including wood shavings and feces).
You will not see them during daylight hours generally

Treatment-

As with most ants, carpenter ants are most easily eradicated with bait treatments. Since the mound cannot be located, generally treatment requires the ants to take the bait and feed the colony and the queen. After the queen dies, the colony dies also. It usually requires two treatments two weeks apart to rid a structure of carpenter ants.
Red Imported Fire Ants:
General Information about Red Imported Fire Ants-

Red Imported Fire Ants nest in the soil and build a mound nests.
They can infest buildings through garages, doorways, weep holes, and cracks on the slab.
They build large mound nests and can sting humans.
They can eat dead animals, insects, earthworms, and sweets.
They can survive in extreme conditions and temperatures as low as 16 degrees. During droughts they dig to the water table. During floods, they gather on a raft, with the queen in the middle, and find dry land.
Treatment –
As with most ants, baits made specifically for the species of ants that it is intended for, are the most effective. The worker ants take the bait to the queen and the colony quickly dies. Contact sprays and granules only offer temporary reprieve, as the queen continues to churn out eggs.pest control

Acrobatic Ants:

The habitat, generally, under rocks or in logs, firewood, trees where wood decay allows them to create tunnels. They also build their nests in the eaves of homes. They often trail from tree limbs and utility lines and enter through cracks, holes, window frames, soffits, door thresholds and wood areas softened by water damage.
They can bite and pose risks to prosperities.
Treatments-

Specific Acrobatic bait products are the most effective. If the nest is originating from outside, but they are trailing into a property. A repellent spray can be used in conjunction with bait products.exterminators
