Apple, the Cupertino tech giant is rumored to arrive with three best tech devices this year. iPhone X, Pencil 2 and 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12.9-inch iPad tablets.
Even though insecticides work great for farmers, they may have a new tool at their disposal for ridding their crops of damaging slug life. You may not have realized that slugs have been known to cause problems for many a farmer, and although we hear more about spider and insect pests, slugs are still a force to be reckoned with on just about every farm.
A certain type of nematode has been proven to infect and kill crop damaging slugs. This nematode has been available to farmers in Europe for the past twenty years. However, the nematode is not yet approved for use by farmers in the United States.
Although the nematodes have proven useful on many different types of crops in the past, researchers are specifically interested in how well nematodes kill slugs that infest maize crops. It was determined that using nematodes as anti-slug remedy was highly effective, but other chemicals would have to be added to the crops along with the slugs in order to obtain optimal results.
Have you ever heard of people using live organisms as insecticides?

There is a common belief, especially in the Midwest, that hedge apples from the Osage orange tree can successfully ward off spiders. Although the practice differs, most people put these hedge apples around their walls during the fall in order to ward off spiders. So does this method actually work?
It turns out that hedge apples don’t work to ward off spiders even in the slightest. First of all, most, if not all, of the spiders that you encounter inside of your home actually live in your home full time, and outdoor spiders stay outdoors, so there are not even any spiders that invade your home to begin with. Second of all, spiders rarely show any signs of being able to detect airborne odors, and that includes the supposed anti-spider aroma of hedge apples. Some people who practice this silly method claim that it is not spiders but actually roaches that die near hedge balls. Save yourself the time and stick with the raid.
Have you ever resorted to any method of killing spiders that is similar to the hedge apple method?

Ynsect is one of the world’s biggest farmers if insects, and is planning on increasing their output in the coming year. The new approval of using insects for fish feed by the EU has come at the perfect time for Ynsect. The company has raised a total of $37 million over the last three years from public and private sources, which they are now planning to use to increase their capacity at their pilot center in Jura, France. They are planning on building the largest insect farming unit in the world. This monstrous facility will have the ability to produce a minimum of 20,000 metric tons of insect protein in a single year.
Ynsect is best known for their product “TMP” (Tenebrio molitor protein), which is an insect protein meal made out of mealworm larvae. TMP is not just any ordinary animal feed made out of insect protein. It is actually the only insect protein produced that considerably improves the animal’s growth and health. Not only does Ynsect’s insect protein meal actually improve the health of the animals consuming it, but the company also uses special software connected to sensors that ensure that the insects they are farming have the highest possible welfare standards. I don’t know about you, but this is the first I’ve heard of an insect farmer actually caring about the living conditions and welfare of the insects they are farming.
Would you support buying from an insect farming company like Ynsect, that has such high standards for the welfare of it’s insects, as well as the quality of it’s insect meal? Would you feed your fish with their insect protein meal?
According to the new Microsoft patent, which was approved on Tuesday, the company envisions a mobile device with a continuous viewing area that extends across the foldable region.
When you hear the word “spider” there is a good possibility that an image of a spider web pops into your head. However, web spinning may not be as common as you assume, as only about half of all known spider species create webs to catch prey.
The spiders that don’t spin webs instead feed themselves by actively hunting for their prey, instead of sitting around lazily by a web. Among those spiders that hunt for prey are the jumping spiders, ground spiders, sac spiders and some species of wolf spider. Other non-web spinning spiders don’t hunt their prey, but instead sit in wait for their prey, and these types of spiders include crab spiders and trapdoor spiders.
Hunting spiders do, in fact, use silk, but not to make webs. Instead hunting spiders use silk to nourish the egg sac or, in some cases, to build a shelter.
Have you ever seen a spider shelter made from spider silk in the wild?
