How Safe is Diatomaceous Earth for Household Use?

You’ve probably never heard of the “magic sand” that is known for its wide range of uses from pest control to weight loss, but you will be today and boy, will you be glad you did.

Today we’re talking all about diatomaceous earth, the abundant naturally occurring “dirt” that is viewed by many as a miracle for non-chemical pest control, but guess what- some people eat it too.

a big juicy bowl of diatomaceous earth, ok so it’s not juicy and it’s more like dirt, but still

Many claim that this natural powder derived from the fossilized remains of microscopic algae is not only good enough to kill your bed bug, flea or tick problem around the house, but you can also eat it to cleanse your gut from harmful parasites.

Is Diatomaceous Earth Really Safe Enough to Eat?

First off, there’s 2 main types of diatomaceous earth classified by the amount of crystalline silica it contains. One is food grade, which is edible, and the other is filter, which is toxic to mammals and found in solutions that clean swimming pools.

We’re going to be talking about food grade diatomaceous earth here.

While many sites on the internet like say yes, it’s safe and many people eat the food grade version as a health supplement, other sites have said that you should never ingest diatomaceous earth because it can bind to your intestinal track and prevent the absorption of trace minerals.

My opinion is that since there has not been any testing done to see just what constitutes a dangerous amount of how much diatomaceous earth, or even dirt, that you can eat, it might be best to do it minimally, if at all. However, as far as short-term safety is concerned, on several occasions I have eaten a spoonful of the food grade diatomaceous earth myself and still live to tell the tale.

Is Diatomaceous Earth Safe for People to Breathe?

One of the best and most common applications for diatomaceous earth is in the use of pest control against crawling insects around the home and garden. However, just because many people know about it, there are even more people who don’t, and there’s a good reason for that- government over-regulation.

But before I get into that, the general procedure for using diatomaceous earth as a bug killer involves dusting crawlspaces and hiding places of the insect pest in question. This usually means an extensive application and a lot of exposed areas which would now contain the dust, so it will become airborne and the possibility of breathing it in, even in tiny amounts, is a likely occurrence.

And this is the reason that the government has made it a regulated market for pest control use, and with it, all the inherent complications and bloat that government intervention entails, which is exactly why you may have never heard of the stuff, though it’s incredibly effective against all types of crawling bugs and parasites.

The Dangers of Breathing Diatomaceous Earth

The dangers of breathing in diatomaceous earth are usually short-lived if done in small amounts, but acute exposure to large amounts or regular exposure over long periods of time can potentially lead to cancer and chronic respiratory issues like silicosis.

I have also breathed in large amounts of food grade diatomaceous earth by accident, and I thought I was going to die because I could not breathe clearly for about 10 minutes and I was gasping for air, but I was being pretty careless.

Due to the risks involved in handling diatomaceous earth, the EPA has created standards for pest control products like bed bug killers that require they show efficacy and are usually less likely to become airborne than their food grade version.

Safety Precautions for Using Diatomaceous Earth to Protect Yourself- and the Bees!

The Final Word on Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is cheap, we’re never going to run out of it, and it works. To top it off, it’s a great alternative to chemical pesticides and insecticides and when used sparingly, many report the food grade to provide a host of benefits from better looking skin and nails to just feeling cleansed from detoxing their gut.

I recommend you take a look at this little-known natural wonder and see for yourself if it’s the best thing you’ve never heard of.

Governments around the Globe are Being Taken Over- by Bed Bugs

bed bugs taking over your government

In the latest “too strange to not be true” news story to drop this week, 2 Dallas TX area police stations were attacked by bed bugs.

Upon finding bed bugs in a squad car at a southeast location, the station commander had the place fumigated, but alas, the bed bugs overcame a single bed bug exterminator treatment. This is why it typically takes 2 – 3 treatments when trying to get rid of bed bugs.

Dallas was ranked the #3 city in the USA for bed bugs according to Terminex’s latest survey, and it’s clear there’s a problem when they’re attacking the police.

Bed Bugs Turning Up for Class at Your Child’s School

bed bug infestation in child's school

In Rome, NY the school superintendent opted to close down the school during the mid-winter break to fumigate the entire Rome Free Academy in order to safeguard against bed bugs.

Pest control actions taken included vacuuming, shampooing, and spraying/powdering to kill bed bugs and their eggs.

They’re actually shutting down school for a few days due to bed bugs in Southern Michigan at one school, with the administrator encouraging parents to wash their children’s clothes thoroughly and dry them on high heat. It’s no surprise the city of Morenci has a bed bug problem as it is located right near Ohio, another regular on the list of top destinations for bedbugs.

It’s Always Bed Buggy in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is a regular on the Top 10 List of Cities for Bedbugs in America, and in one area of the town the city council has teamed up with a pest control company to provide bed and mattress liners for residents in low-income housing areas intended to counteract bed bugs.

Claimed to be the first of its kind, the program plans to offer comprehensive approaches to bed bugs and to promote active participation by residents in the community.

New York, New York – and of course bed bugs too

And yes, New York did shut down a large part of their underground rail system recently to attempt to deal with bed bugs at its Queens terminal, leaving many train riders stranded.

One blogger in NY describes her ordeal of bed bugs moving in with her and her boyfriend, and from her account it seems that bedbugs are as common to New York as the Yankees baseball team.

All Over But the Shouting: How the Federal Reserve Failed to Avoid a Recession in 2020

Why the Next Recession Has Just Been Proven Unavoidable

A traditionally reliable indicator of an impending recession was set off on Friday as the Dow Jones closed down 460 points, and the 3 month T bill interest rate exceeded that of the 10-year Treasury bond. This shows that limited term government bonds are producing more cash outflows than longer term instruments, proving that investors have a declining view of the economy long-term.

Every time the, the yield curve has inverted, a recession has followed just a year later, from 1929 to 1989, 2000 to 2007, and now, 2019.

Insane Over-Valuations of Current Stocks Spell Trouble

The Federal Reserve Bank recently acknowledged they had no real plan to increase interest rates any more for 2019, casually admitting a reverse in course from the plan to raise rates at least 4 times in 2019. After lifting up interest rates in 2018 a few times to a nominal rate of only 2.5%, the stock market began a major dive starting in October, and had a significant price drop on Christmas Eve in 2018.

This says that the Federal Reserve System is admitting that the economy once hailed as the best ever is not that strong after all, and devoid near-zero % interest rates to ensure more free money is injected into the stock and bond markets, the Dow Jones, Nasdaq and S&P 500 don’t have much room to go up any longer.

The Federal Reserve is Running Out of Tools

After doing a 180 during the Christmas holidays on future plans for rate hikes, the Fed Reserve has revealed the true weakness in the economy, and if you pick up the silent message you can see that they’re not ruling out pulling rates back to zero, if not going into new territory of negative interest rates- charging you money for simply holding your money in a private commercial bank.

But this is what happens after 10 years of quantitative easing and keynesian economics, money printing, tax cuts for the corporations which in turn resulted in no more than their own stock share buybacks- events which have transpired in a time where personal, corporate, government, and worldwide debt have risen to a total of $250 trillion which at this point, everyone says can never be paid off.

It’s inevitable and all over but the shouting concerning the global debt default, and this occurs simultaneously as housing markets around the world continue to slump, the student loan bubble traverses to new highs and defaults, and now retail store closures with people missing their auto payments for 3 months straight- all record misses on the hottest economy since the 90’s, if you believe the mainstream media.

Gold and Silver are About to Have a Breakout in Price

While the MSM tells you to buy more stocks, the central banks around the world are quietly buying up and hoarding more and more gold. Gold and silver assets are at all-time historical lows, and many think metals are the last opportune investment since nothing else is anything but extremely over-valued right now.

The advantage is you can invest in gold and silver by simply buying some here and there online. If you have a 401K, Roth or traditional IRA and want to take out a larger position in precious metals, a Roth IRA Rollover to Gold could be advantageous to your overall investments, providing tax benefits, allowing for physical possession and ownership of real gold, and giving investors the chance to take delivery at a time of their choosing.

Appareil à pression positive continue pour le ronflement et l’apnée du sommeil

La solution que la plupart des gens rencontrent est le PPC, ou appareil à pression positive continue, qui, lorsqu’il est utilisé, est souvent la solution la plus efficace contre le ronflement et l’apnée du sommeil. Cependant, le coût et l’engagement sont élevés.

Même si un PPC peut coûter des milliers de dollars en plus des coûts des visites chez le médecin et des factures d’assurance, beaucoup de personnes ne se rendent pas compte que son taux de réussite varie entre 46% et 83% de toutes les personnes traitées avec l’appareil ne parvient pas à utiliser les 4 heures recommandées par nuit. Cela pose donc la question suivante: “Le PPC est-il la meilleure option pour les personnes qui ronflent?”

La prochaine option commune est la chirurgie corrective. Il existe au moins 25 interventions chirurgicales différentes pour le ronflement et l’apnée du sommeil, mais les plus courantes sont l’uvulectomie, la réduction du cornet, la septoplastie, les implants et l’avancement maxillomandibulaire.

Ces interventions peuvent être effectuées dans un cabinet médical ou une clinique sous anesthésie locale uniquement. Vous serez libéré le jour même. Cependant, le taux de réussite de ces procédures mérite un examen minutieux car, ensemble, elles permettent en moyenne moins de 50% de réussir à éliminer le ronflement et à améliorer l’apnée du sommeil des patients.

Si cette information vous semble décourageante, vous pouvez être agréablement surpris de savoir ce que Lawrence Epstein, médecin de Harvard, a dit à propos de l’apnée du sommeil: “Si nous pouvons amener les gens à perdre du poids, cela provoquerait à la fois une apnée du sommeil et d’autres problèmes de santé ] allez-vous en.”

La vérité est que la plupart des Américains ont un excès de poids et beaucoup sont techniquement obèses. Plus de la moitié des adultes américains sont considérés en surpoids et plus du tiers sont considérés comme obèses.

Arrêter le ronflement embout buccal

En plus de perdre un peu de poids, d’ajouter de l’exercice à la routine hebdomadaire et de chercher des moyens de réduire les choix d’aliments malsains, les ronfleurs peuvent également investir un peu de temps et effectuer des recherches pour mettre fin aux ronflements disponibles en vente libre et toujours éliminés par le médecin FDA. Vous pouvez vous procurer un embout buccal qui vous aide à arrêter de ronfler. Ces embouts peuvent fonctionner immédiatement et coûtent généralement moins de 100 dollars. Beaucoup d’entre eux viennent avec des essais sans risque afin que vous puissiez essayer avant d’acheter, en fin de compte.

Peu importe ce que vous faites, veuillez faire quelque chose à propos de votre problème de ronflement ou de l’apnée du sommeil. À long terme, le ronflement peut nuire gravement à votre santé et à votre longévité, se faisant passer pour une gêne.

Bonne chance et beaucoup de nuits reposantes et reposantes.

How to Stop Your Dog from Peeing Inside the House, on the Furniture, Carpet or Couch

how to stop your dog from peeing inside your house while you are goneYou love your dog but maybe you’re overlooking some of the finer and less enjoyable points of dog ownership, like how and why your dog is peeing or pooping indoors.

Today we’re gonna take a look at how to stop your dog peeing inside the house, on the floor, furniture, carpet, and even ceiling fan (ok that last one would be genuinely impressive and treat-worthy).

To be honest, there could be many reasons why Fido is choosing to go potty indoors, so let’s start by eliminating the most common potential factors first.

Top Reasons Your Dog Is Peeing on Your Floor In Your House

The 2 main reasons your dog is peeing inside is either it has been cooped up too long inside waiting for someone to come home and let it out to do its business, or the dog has a potentially serious health problem. Additionally, if your dog is still a puppy and potty training, then it may just take time to learn when and where not to go.

If you are away from home for long periods of time, sometimes your solution is as easy as getting some super absorbent doggy pee pads, or for a more environmentally friendly and all-weather solution, install a dog door.

Remember, your dog does not actually want to pee on the floor. It would much rather pee on a large patch of grass or a tree outside.

Why does my dog pee indoors or on the couch?

With all that said, let’s troubleshoot and rule out all potential serious medical conditions. Here’s how…

If your dog was previously potty trained to go outdoors and everything was fine, be aware that this could signify a health problem that could merit a visit to the veterinarian.

reward your dog for peeing outside during potty timeA quick and easy way to determine this is to use your weekend (or ideally 2 consecutive days off from work) and take your dog outside on a leash every 2 hours throughout the day. Take them to their usual pee spot and verbally (gently) encourage them to go potty, or whatever codeword you typically use. Then heavily reward with treats, praise, patting, hugs, kisses, etc.

When the normal week resumes, see if this has had any positive effect or lasting change on the dog.

If the dog still pees indoors and on the couch during this 2-hour outside pee pee field trip weekend, then there could be a chance your dog has a serious medical condition ranging anywhere from UTI (urinary tract infection), diabetes, or even internal parasites.

In addition to this, the other things you can do is clean the previously peed upon indoor area with an enzymatic cleaner to remove the dog urine enzymes and scent (which cause the dog to want to continue going there), check to see if your dog has been neutered, continue to take the dog outside more and on walks, or try crate training.

If your dog is marking territory, is it because you brought a new dog into the home? Or are you doing some dog sitting yourself which makes your dog want to claim certain areas with his urine?

Natural Way to Remove Dog Urine Enzymes from Furniture

Citrus juice diluted with water can create a scent that repels your dog from peeing in certain areas, and you can make it easily yourself. The citric acid in lemons will also naturally break down the dog’s enzymes from previous “uh-ohs”, so this method works great on carpets as well as furniture. Just make sure you dilute it substantially to prevent staining.

To supercharge this natural solution, consider adding chili pepper powder or even the squeezed juice of a hot pepper (because it is colorless and won’t stain). A dog’s nose is highly sensitive and irritated by capsacin, the natural ingredient which gives peppers their spicy quality.

Conclusion on Doggy Incontinence and Accidental Urination

Your dog loves you and looks up to you. Remember that next time your dog makes a “whoopsy” on the couch or floor, and if it becomes a regularly occurring thing, make sure to thoroughly monitor your dog with some training and treats before deciding if a trip to the vet is necessary.

Good luck and here’s to you and your pup.

Could This One Mineral Change Your Snoring for the Better, Overnight?

magnesium could help you stop snoring and sleep better at nightMagnesium- it’s not just for bones any more. While it’s possible to get magnesium from your everyday diet, people who snore are going to want to listen up, especially when women are statistically found to have a lower intake of magnesium in their diets.

GABA in the brain is known to help induce relaxation and sleep, which is increased by magnesium. In fact, magnesium deficiency is often recognized as being a cause of increased stress and anxiety, which wreaks havoc on your overall well being as well as central nervous and immune systems. Lowered GABA levels can also make it hard for people to wind down and relax at the end of the day.

Can magnesium cause sleep apnea and snoring?

Anyone who understands sleep apnea knows the mechanism for an apnea episode. The jaw slips back and depresses the airway, causing a blockage in the airway which leads to the body failing to breathe during sleep. Less severe sleep apnea is often marked by regular snoring, which is a common sign of obstructive sleep apnea as well and can be an alarm bell for those who just think it’s something annoying or funny, and the stuff that embarrassing facebook posts are made of.

Fortunately, magnesium relieves cramping and relaxes the neck muscles so that the airway actually becomes less blocked, thus reducing sleep apnea. 5-HTP is recommended to add with magnesium to get the full benefit.

How much magnesium should I take for sleep?

The recommended daily allowance for mg is 310–420 mg for adults depending on your age and gender. Some added benefits of taking magnesium are improved regularity, better sleep, stopping muscle cramps and alleviating depression.

Don’t stop at just magnesium or HTP! Consider the following vitamins and minerals that will help your overall sleep at night:

*Valerian Root
*Vitamin D
*Vitamin E
*B vitamins

Surprising Foods that Can Help You Sleep at Night

Sometimes it’s ok to go bananas. Eating a banana before bedtime means getting a shot of potassium as well s L-tryptophan, an amino acid which turns to 5-HTP (reinforcing the magneisum) and releases serotonin, the feel-good relaxation chemical in the brain.

Another great food to have before bed is olive oil. Taking a teaspoon of olive oil mixe with honey is going to supercharge your body, while also lessening the vibrations in your throat which will reduce snoring. Other great oils to consider treating your snoring with are Eucalyptus, Valor Essential Oil, Marjoram, and Thyme– though you would be sniffing them or applying them under your toes before bed, not eating them!

Other things you can do to overcome a snoring tendency

Lastly, here’s some hard and fast recommendations to beat snoring without a CPAP or surgery:

*Switch up your sleeping position
*Drop some weight through exercise and diet
*Clear your sinuses and open the nasal airways
*Get a stop snoring pillow
*Drink plenty of water
*Reduce alcohol and quit smoking
*Watch the pills and prescription meds

The Top 7 Restaurant Complaints that Waiters and Servers Should Pay Attention To

rude restaurant servers top the list of consumer complaints when eating outIt might seem a little silly, that a restaurant guest would ask their waiter “Did you just say something under your breath?”, thinking they may have heard a barely audible insult from someone they were paying to simply bring them something to eat. But it’s exactly what WikiHow’s website advises in a whole list of “How to deal with a rude restaurant server” tips, surprisingly enough.

How sad is it that people whose job requires so little expertise, effort, and skills, would actually even risk coming across as rude and potentially lose the opportunity to earn more money. From a solely selfish perspective, it is still completely illogical. But when considering mere professionalism or human kindness which we’d hope might grace the most basic of social or commercial transactions, it’s downright despicable.

And perhaps not shockingly, rude waiters and servers at restaurants tops the list of guest and consumer complaints during a survey taken just 4 years ago, and it’s probably only gotten worse since then. As a former upscale casual dining server myself, I find it to be downright deplorable.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common gripes from guests when out attempting to enjoy a meal.

The Top 7 Restaurant Complaints that Waiters and Servers Should Pay Attention To


-Dirty forks, spoons, knives, glasses, or table (76%)
-Unsanitary or inadequate restroom facilities (73%)
-Impolite or condescending waiters and waitresses (72%)
-Servers and waitstaff with a sloppy appearance or bad hygiene (67%)
-Food and drinks served at the wrong temperature (66%)
-Meals are not what you ordered (62%)
-Feeling pressured to hurry up and finish or leave by the restaurant server (61%)

I want you to notice something. Out of the 7 top complaints, notice how the restaurant waiter/server is occupying 3 slots of disgust from guests dining out.

These things are totally preventable, but it takes conscious thought and action, as well as a sincere heart and underlying, fundamental motivation and purpose by restaurant servers, to ensure that they are at least providing the minimum satisfactory guest dining experience, much less going above and beyond, which I explain in great detail in my Waiting Tables Video Master Class.

It all starts with first impressions, like how a guest is treated upon immediately entering the restaurant and assessing the basics- where to sit, do they perceive a positive dining experience when eating out, and is the restaurant a good value.

How to Be a Great Restaurant Host or Hostess


When looking at the results of the 1003 people surveyed by Consumer Reports as to what their biggest complaints were when dining out at restaurants, you might be surprised if you are a restaurant employee to see so many basic, fundamental issues that really should simply never be.

Now, while in some cases waiters and servers are actually paid to be rude, because it is the theme of the restaurant, most diners and restaurant patrons usually seek out positive and friendly service, and tip accordingly.

Rude Restaurant Servers Are Also a Burden on Co-Workers

Aside from filling up your business’s Yelp page with a litany of negative customer reviews, bad waiters are also losing themselves money, and creating a toxic environment for the actual good waiters and waitresses who show up ready to do the job every shift.

This is one of the reasons I ultimately quit working in restaurants. I was an above-average server with a good heart. I suffered from the same financial issues as other staff members in the place of business, but the difference was I always attempted to make money outside of the restaurant, and I never complained at work unless it was just disastrously slow, which was rare by the time I left my last serving assignment a mere 10 yards from the famous Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.

I was consistently in the upper half of the waitstaff in terms of selling gift and loyalty cards, I made good tips, and notwithstanding a long drive to and from work and finding parking which was usually a big chore, I did not mind serving, and saw it as my opportunity to bring a small amount of joy and ease into hard working people’s lives for an hour or 2.

But even I had to move on, and being good at waiting tables as well as side hustling is what helped me eventually get out of that environment, and it came at the exact right time, because our best All-American college educated employee got his bike stolen and his life threatened by an illegal immigrant/Obama easy-issue VISA border hopper who was working in the kitchen, and that was the last straw.

Conclusion on the Biggest Beef with Restaurants that is Not Expressly Cow Related

If you are a restaurant general manager, supervisor, bartender, server, waiter, waitress, bus boy, food runner, host or hostess, that is trying to improve both your own financial situation and the world around you, then consider checking out the Waiting Tables Video Master Class. It’s only 20 bucks and also comes with a free gift that’s perfect for helping restaurant staff make money even when they’re not at their primary occupation, because no one can control consumer demand or how many hours you get on the schedule.

Watch: the Stop Snoring Video that has the Internet Triggered

web search sleep apnea and snoringThe Internet is a great place to research and obtain new information on a variety of topics, especially common ills and symptoms of health issues before they get out of hand. No longer do you have to rely solely upon the town doctor or your best friend’s cousin for “expert” advice on matters of health and medicine.

Now you can get info about topics like snoring and sleep apnea online.

So when I made a video about snoring, it got positive responses, and also a lot of negative ones too. Actually, some of the comments were nothing less than pure outrage.

News anchors on MSNBC tell you to buy a dying stock market everyday before the entire economy tanks, people lose their houses and retirement, their life savings- and nobody bats an eye.

A guy gets on the internet and tells people not to trust the medical establishment regarding surgery to correct sleep apnea or the CPAP device for a lifelong dependency to a potentially temporary condition, to exercise and diet to reduce sleep apnea and snoring- and the whole world loses its mind.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea Video

Oh boy. Some guy expresses an opinion and people go crazy. “Are you a doctor?”. “I’m reporting you to the [insert alphabet soup agency name here]!”. “Do you even HAVE sleep apnea, PAL/BUD/IDIOT?”

You get the idea.

So today, in the interest of coming to a better understanding of these topics, I’ve decided to research this even more to answer what should be the obvious questions in hopes of everyone learning more.

Because you Snore, does it mean you have Sleep Apnea?

About 90 million Americans snore, and about half or more of those people may have OSA or obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type of sleep apnea. The other form of sleep apnea is CSA, or central sleep apnea, which has more to do with the central nervous’s system having an inability to control the involuntary impulse that humans have to breathe without consciously thinking about it.

Just because you snore does not mean you have sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea are usually known to snore and wake themselves up throughout the night, while regular mild snorers can go a whole night without waking themselves up. Sleep apnea sufferers are also known to be very sleep throughout the day, and sleep with their mouths open. Also, sleep apnea patients may snore more loudly than the typical person who snores.

Risk factors for snoring and sleep apnea within your control

The risk factors for sleep apnea that you can control yourself to reduce snoring and sleep apnea alike are diet, exercise, medications, alcohol and cigarette consumption, and the position in which you sleep at night.

Other risk factors for sleep apnea that may or may not be within your direct control are: your genetics, your age and gender (as males age they are at higher risk), as well as your sinuses and ability to breathe through your nose.

Regardless of which category you might belong to, just remember that people who snore and have sleep apnea often incur a 40% greater chance of premature death than their peers. So it will behoove you proactively find a solution to either problem. Additionally, anyone with common sense can see that snoring is a sort of gateway into sleep apnea, though not a guarantee for the condition.

But since snoring and sleep apnea are most often occurring due to some type of blockage in the airway, you can see how they both belong together in the discussion. Just remember that about 38,000 people die annually from sleep apnea related heart disease. It is putting a major stress on your health and your vital organs.

One thing is for sure: Oxygen is essential.

If you are sure of your snoring problem, but unsure whether you have sleep apnea or not, you can start off by trying out some lower level remedies while simultaneously seeking out expert certified medical care and a sleep study to determine if you have obstructive or even central sleep apnea.

cpap alternatives and an oral appliance to treat snoringSome low level solutions for snoring that are not too expensive for trying out include stop snoring mouthpieces, nasal dilators, taking an honest look at your current weight, exercise, and diet regime, and trying a different sleep position or even a stop snoring pillow.

Once You Start CPAP, is it Forever?

This is an important question to answer, and why I recommend people start out small and eliminate all the risk factors within their own control first before moving onto the heavy duty equipment which could require a life-long commitment.

To answer the question though, once you start CPAP, you only get the benefits of the device with continued use. So in other words, once you start, yes, you are required to keep using it. While some people note residual benefits of CPAP even on days they skip using the machine, these benefits usually go away after a few days as the throat goes back to normal positioning outside of other structural or major bodily changes.

Conclusion on Stop Snoring and Sleep Apnea Videos Online

Newfound knowledge these days is often readily available and at our fingertips in a matter of seconds…

And with this trend comes a digital jungle that you will have to machete your way through in hopes of gleaning useful (and hopefully true) tidbits of information as you compile your own understanding of what’s going on in the world, and with your own health.

While most people probably inherently understand this, that it’s ultimately up to them to decide if what they are reading/watching/listening to is accurate and makes sense, there are of course the exceptions that expect anyone who films a YouTube video to be a certified expert on the topic to which they speak.

How Can Hostels and Hotel Managers Prevent and Wipe Out Bed Bugs?

how hotel managers and travelers can prevent and get rid of bed bugsWhether you are the manager of a hotel or a frequent traveler who likes to check out reviews online before making your reservations for overnight stays at home or abroad, you know the feeling you get when you see a prior guest write one of those super negative reviews in all CAPS saying “BED BUGS, STAY AWAY!!! WOKE UP WITH RED BITES”.

But before you think there’s something majorly wrong with your hotel or home stay, just remember how common bed bug sightings and outbreaks have become all around the world. Recently in the heartland of America at a public library bed bugs were even found hiding out: “Bartlesville library identifies, isolates and exterminates bed bugs after recent outbreak“. But it’s not because bedbugs enjoy catching up on their favorite classic novelists why they might be at a library.

What Bed Bugs Like the Most

Bed bugs, aka cimex lectularius, love warm, carpeted or clothed areas, are usually but not always active at night, and are often found in high traffic areas, which explains why they’d be at a motel, hotel, library, or even lurking on bus seats in Philadelphia like the video below shows:

Imagine the horror of such a bus trip from bed bug hell. But it’s sadly become an unavoidable reality to discover bedbugs at random places in public when you’d least expect (or like). There is some good news though for people who have been bitten or have caught these hitch-hikers catching rides with humans back to their homes to further breed and infest.

Good News about Bed Bugs

While bed bug bites are extremely nerve-wracking and annoying, especially when you realize what the heck is going on, and while they may itch and burn (wait you said there’s good news?)… the good news is that the bites themselves are usually relatively harmless. The burning and itching from bed bug bites are actually allergic reactions from your skin to the bites, so it doesn’t mean your dying.

Next, the bites don’t contain venom so there’s not an immediate threat of death or passing out. However, people who live in retirement homes should be a little concerned if they themselves are anemic or suffer from blood issues, because obviously you need your blood! And anemia patients may suffer hardest.

Finally, there IS something you can do to fight the nasty creepy crawly bed bug invaders, and it doesn’t have to break the bank either so even if you are on a small budget then you don’t have to worry about a bed bug exterminator being the next pest to bleed you dry!

Positive Steps to Effective Bedbug Removal

As was the case in a local report of Gary Elementary School having a longtime standing feud with bed bugs, the first and most important is to identify and isolate the source, if any, of the bed bugs that are frequently showing up everywhere. This is because, just like at the elementary school, you can regularly fumigate and spray for bedbugs with limited effectiveness- especially if the source of the bed bugs keeps coming back, which in this story was one child the school staff positively recognized, even offering to fumigate the child’s home, with little to no response from parents.

If you are fortunate enough to have identified the location of hiding, potential source and extent of a bed bug presence, the next step is removal and prevention. This can be accomplished by cleaning the affected areas like a 5-Star General was going to visit and inspect tomorrow, as well as removing all bedding materials and going to the laundromat to wash and dry on extremely high heat, which usually kills of the parasitic bedbugs cheaply.

Next, to prevent a recurrence from happening, fortunately you DO NOT HAVE TO GET AN EXTERMINATOR. Exterminator costs for bed bugs can get into the hundreds and thousands of dollars quite quickly, so you’ll want to keep the cost of eliminating bed bugs from getting out of control or becoming a slave to the Orkin company.

This can be accomplished by laying down a preventative measure like a bed bug powder derived from completely natural, non-chemical sources. Believe it or not, they do and have existed for 100’s of years! Over regulation and a pre-existing monopoly on pest control in the Western World have effectively prevented new bed bug remedies and solutions from entering the market, even though this one type of bed bug killer is so safe that I would be comfortable eating it. I’m not joking!

I know it sounds unbelievable, but a $20 dollar dare would make me 20 bucks richer right now for any takers. I have eaten natural freshwater silica based bed bug killers before with zero problem! But, you don’t want to breathe the stuff, because that’s where I goofed once demonstrating this product type and felt like I was going to drown.

Not fun.

The Not-So Scary Conclusion on Bed Bugs
