Many Midwesterners are fed up with the annoying gypsy moth population. Gypsy moths start life as tree eating caterpillars. These caterpillars have destroyed thousands of trees in Ohio alone, and one of Ohio’s most popular public parks, Minerva Park, has seen its trees ravaged on a scale as large as a city block. Gypsy moths are believed to have migrated west from Pennsylvania several years ago, while leaving a trail of destruction in their path that has left the state of Ohio particularly afflicted. In response to this worsening gypsy moth problem, the Ohio Department of Agriculture has started is annual moth control treatment program.
There is currently a mad rush to save trees in the Midwestern and mid Atlantic states that have been damaged by moth activity, but can still be saved with aerial insecticide spraying. According to Ohio State University Entomologist, Dr. David Shetlar, the agricultural departments slow spreading of insecticides over particular targets by plane has proven to be a highly useful method of keeping these devastating bugs at bay.
Have you ever worked on a farm and witnessed aerial insecticide spraying for yourself?

Does Slime From Snails Really Work As A Beautifying Skin Product
You may or may not have heard of the snail-slime trend involving the use of snail-slime as a skin care product. This trend is increasing dramatically in popularity. The demand for snail-slime as a skin care agent has caused a three hundred and twenty five percent increase in snail farming over the last two decades. In just the last ten months the cosmetics industry has seen a forty six percent increase in snail slime demand.
Snail-slime has been used to beautify human skin since the times of the ancient Greeks. The Greeks took snails and crushed them into an ointment that they could rub onto their faces. During more recent times snail-slime has been marketed for its alleged effectiveness at treating acne and reducing wrinkles.
Some spas around the world allow for customers to choose to have snails crawl around on their faces for their skin-care effects. There are also cosmetic products within some stores that contain pure mollusk-slime. Whatever works, I guess.
Have you ever tried applying snail slime to your face for skin care purposes?

Although you may not hear too many stories about people falling victim to the rabies virus, there are still plenty of rabies cases reported around the United States, and elsewhere, today. Researchers from the University of Georgia’s Ecology department are attempting to eradicate the virus entirely.
The researchers, as you would expect, have seen their share of raccoons while out in the field. Around ninety percent of rabies cases reported in the United States were transmitted by wild animals, and thirty percent of those wild animals are raccoons. In fact, there have been efforts to eradicate the rabies virus for years now. Some of these efforts include lobbying lawmakers to create laws that make the spread of rabies more improbable, such as requiring domestic dogs and cats to receive the rabies. There are, luckily, very few confirmed cases of rabies in the US relative to other countries, but according to the World Health Organization you should definitely visit the hospital if you have recently sustained a bite from a bat or raccoon.
Have you ever been worried that you may have had rabies?
