Be Careful Stepping Out of the Shower

I pulled a muscle in my lower back and am now sitting bolt upright at my desk trying to think of ways to get my mind off the throbbing pain………….well this isn’t working…………….It would not be so sad a tale if I could claim to have hurt my back while scoring a try or bungee jumping or some other manly extreme sport. But I hurt it leaning over to dry my foot on leaving the shower. Violins please!

I have over the last few weeks answered questions from several people concerned with the control or eradication of hide and other dermestid beetles. These are beetles whose larvae bore into a variety of materials. Hide or larder beetle bore into hides, leathers, dried larder goods. Carpet beetle larvae feed on wools, silk, fur and other natural animal fibres. The damaging larvae of these beetles are often referred to as woolly bears because of their hairy look.

Treatments with NO Bugs Super or similar synthetic pyrethroid products with a good long term action of three months or more is sufficient to get rid of these pests. The life cycle is approximately 2-3 months so larvae or adult beetle are likely to contact active areas of treatment and be controlled. NO Fleas Total containing insect growth regulator (IGR) can help break the life cycle by preventing eggs, larvae and pupae reaching adult maturity.
