Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

What Happens if I Don't Take Advantage of Ant Exterminator Services?

Have you ever had your house overrun by ants? Not only is it creepy to have tiny little bugs invading your space but they can create issues you may be unaware of. Depending on just how bad your ant infestation is and what types of ants are running a muck in your home it may be your best option to seek professional help of an ant exterminator

Certain types of ants can cause significant structural damage to your home. Carpenter ants are a huge cause of home damage and they can be very hard to get rid of. These little buggers chew up wood and build their homes and nests within your walls, pillars, framing and more. These ants need to be stopped quickly before they spread and multiply to other areas of your home. 

Black ants aren’t very harmful but they can multiply quickly and start to get into your food. The best way to avoid a black ant infestation is to ensure your food, sweets, and snacks aren’t laying around create crumby bait stations. Black ants will keep coming back in swarms when they find a solid food source. Ant exterminators will be able to advise you on the best types of treatments to use, which ones are safe around pets and children and they can help you create a deterrent plan that will ant proof your home. 

Red ants or Fire ants are some of the nastiest of them all and all because of the level of pain they provide when they bite. Other ants bite as well but the red ant has a very strong and painful pinch that brings tears to even the strongest eyes. The pain from bites is something nobody wants to endure so if you see them lingering around your home it’s best to start a plan to destroy their existence. 

All ants will attract predators like spiders and bats as they are a very easy to catch and eat food source. Keeping your home free of these tiny pests will also help to keep out the larger more terrifying ant eating ones as well. 

So when your sitting there thinking “oh it’s just a few ants” think about your home and your families safety because ants may be tiny but they can pack a serious punch.
