Answer: Ladybugs will eat the bugs called aphids, (pronounced a-fids) off of your rose bushes and leaves. Misqutio hawks will eat misquitos and flys.Misquito hawks look much like misquitos just much bigger in size and wing span. Laybugs can be bought at your local petshop or sometimes even hardware stores or nurserys
Answer: Insects absolutely have nutritious value such as protein. In addition, they also contain iron and loads of calcium and phosphorus -- not to mention vitamins such as that which is found in your daily multivitamin. Eating bugs is actually very common; there is an endless amount of bugs that it is perfectly okay to eat. In many countries, people continue to eat them to this day. Some examples are grasshoppers, field crickets, grubs and cicadas.Many people do not realize that they eat a small amount of bugs each day. There are bugs that very easily get into bread and, in fact, bugs continually get into the flour that is milled in granaries. The black specks in your bread could actually be bugs in the grain
Answer: Bugs are very contaminated but have you heard of the candy covered bugs. Bugs in different parts of the word are very nutritious. Actually I read in a national geographic that bugs are one of the healthiest foods on earth. I think it really depends on your taste buds.
Answer: nothing if its truly just a bug. Bugs are a good source of protien, and are eaten all around the world. ever heard of chocolate grasshoppers?but dont go eating any millipedes, or segmented worms like them, since they are laced with a kind of poison.
Answer: Killing water bugs I am quoting a post in that was in pool problems....
This worked VERY well for me. No more bugs! I used BioGuard Back Up as my algecide. Once I balanced the water, I shocked it that night and poured in one bottle of the algecide and then I am adding 1/4 of the bottle each week.
Here is the quote from Godspeed: To get rid of water bugs. Attack their way of living! I had a problem with water bugs, and no way to get rid of them. Clorine wont kill them because because they breath the air!!! So here are some things you should do to elminate water bugs.
I see alot of posts from people with problems of backswimmers and boatmen
waterboatmen: are oval shaped bugs that do not bite, There food source is alge and minute aquatic organisms, they eat mosquito larvae and tend to eat small aquatic animals.
backswimmers: have a streamlined body shape and DO bite(as painful as a bee sting), the backswimmer is pradacous, they come to the surface for air, a supply of which they carry down with them under their wings and between the fine hairs covering the underside of the body
now I didnt some experimenting, since these bugs come up for water i caught a backswimmer put it in a bucket filled it with some water to swim, and put household lubricating oil in (which floats on the top) when the bug came up for air, it inhaled a bunch of oil dove down real quick swam sideways hit the side of the bucket several times then drowned. that is an effective way of killing them but is not practical to fill your swimming pool up with gasoline or oil just to get rid of them.
both waterboatmen and backswimmers can fly. both lay eggs in underwater vegetation, in a swim pools case, "alge" both can be found in mud at the bottom of streams, pools and ponds. both NEED to come up for air, if you hold them down under water they will drown both for pools, lay eggs in the alge.
The only way to get rid of them is to take away there food supply, for water boatmen its alge, for backswimmers its other water bugs such as waterboatmen or water beetles. the first step is clorination of course, shock the pool several times, scrub the alge off of the sides and bottoms of pool, scrub all alge after shocking. everytime you shock? SCRUB.
fishing them out with a skimmer works, make sure to kill them when you have skimmed them out, leave a bucket of water and oil close teehee!
after the population of the other water bugs has gone down for the backswimmers to live off of, they will start dying off, and/or finding another place to swim "next door neighbors pool"!
make sure the pool is heavily clorinated, make sure your filter is cleaned out DE filters especially, if you have an auto water refiller put a clorine tablet in it to keep the alge from growing in there. every area your pool has contact with water, make sure clorine is passing through.
Now this is the most important part, BUY ALGECIDE! BUY ALGECIDE! BUY ALGECIDE!
With no alge in the pool the bugs cannot and will not lay there eggs!
clorine is not effective unless the pool water is completely balanced Ph, alkalinity, hardness ect, so in case it is not, algecide is most effective of eliminating water bugs
So let me summarize this for you
1. clorinate, SHOCK over SHOCK for the first week everday, it might cost you, but if you want the bugs gone do it. 2. after shocking immediatly scrub the whole pool every corner that has contact with water even the skimmer, get the alge floating so the clorine kills it faster, the clorine no longer has to break through the alge stronghold on the pool serface, with alge free floating the clorine can erradicate it quicker. 3. ALGECIDE, there are some forms of alge that clorine does not kill, if you take away one bugs food supply they die, the predators will die and so on 4. Fish the bugs out, kill em. one less bug to lay a ton of eggs 5. Continue Alegice treatment indefinatly. if you live in an area with irrigation or standing water areas, water bugs can migrate. when they come to your pool and see theres nothing to eat they will leave. if they dont leave and decide to stay the night? fish em out crush them or drown them 6. keep your water balanced afterwords!
Answer: If you have an above ground pool:1. dip out as many of the bugs as you can with the net.2. shock it heavily3. keep the cover on it when not in use. It is a pain, but it will get rid of the bugs eventually. You want the cover of the pool to lightly cover the layer of water, that way the bugs cannot come up for air. If you have an inground pool, I would not know the exact answer, but maybe that would work getting rid of them too.Clarify it, vacuum it, and run the filter 24/7 if possible, changing the filter at least weekly for cartridge pools. You can buy like 3 of them and just alternate them as needed. My advise is to get a sand filter. I know someone who has one on an Intex blow up above ground pool and it works really well. They always have crystal clear water.Just because you have a saltwater system does not mean you can cut out on ALL of the chemicals, as I misunderstood. You still have to keep your levels straight. The only thing you do not have to have is chlorine, which in itself is a big thing. Test your levels regularly for PH & Free Chorine & Alkalinity.
Answer: There is no definite way to keep bugs off of you. My suggestion is to wear a repelant, or if your out hiking in long grass were a hat, and boots. Plus jeans. And maybe a light weight jacket (depending on the weather) Other than that, theres no other way.
