In the United States, there are three spiders that are dangerous to humans. These are the black widow, brown recluse and the hobo spider.

Most spiders are harmless and will eat other types of bugs. In general, their fangs are too weak to pierce human flesh.

However, the presence of the three above spiders can be a serious risk. Have our pest control technicians visit your home and help you determine the type of spider and the treatment options.

Contact us today to get started with safe and friendly pest control. Ask us any questions you have and we will be happy to help.

Bit of a palate cleanser from all the bird videos. Here's a bug. I think it's a yellow-collared scape moth. Those antenna are just going, going, going! Also, the video I mentioned a few days ago about making your entire yard a birdfeeder is up on my YouTube page. It's not really a guide on how to make your yard bird-friendly, but meant more to hopefully inspire people to reconsider their yards. If you're looking for ways to make your yard more bird friendly, there are lots of great books out there. #bugsofinstagram #insectphotography #insect_perfection #insectogram #macroinsect #goblincore #naturecore #pollinators #nativeplants #insects #insect #bugs #nature #wildlife #gardening

I took my gorgeous Spiny Flower Mantis out to sit on my desk while I worked yesterday... He seemed pretty happy about it and stretched his beautiful wings a few times 😍 he is just so darn pretty!!

Last summer I was at Zackenberg research station in Greenland and did a bioart project that involved using fluorescent pigment. The aim was to visualise the effects of pollinator decline. The pigment was used to dye the pollen of mountain avens which is a flowering plant and a keystone species in Greenland.

I'm currently editing the photographs I took and also planning what to do with some of the pollinators I collected. These were used for the experiment, and I'm thinking of using them for an installation at the photographic gallery Hippolyte. The works will be displayed in Hippolyte Studio in January/February.

After my previous post I got a message from @eddimage_photography. He asked me for a sample of these beautiful ants and after I sent him 2 workers he took these amazing photos! Thank you @eddimage_photography for these great photos (and sorry that the legs were damaged) The ant pictured is Colobopsis truncata that uses its flat head to block off intruders from its nest. They can be found throughout Southern and Central Europe. •

A clumsy fall or a graceful leap? I guess only this Common Buckeye Butterfly (Junonia coenia) will really know.
The spots on the wings of these butterflies mimic eyes, which can help scare away potential predators!

🔴Speckled wood butterfly, Pararge aegeria.
Not all the butterflies feed of the nectar of the flowers. Is the case of this beauty, it prefers to feed of salts of the ground and droppings. 🔴Bruna boscana, Pararge aegeria. No totes les papallones s'alimenten del nèctar de les flors. És el cas d'aquesta papallona, que prefereix alimentar-se de sals que hi troba al sòl i d'excrements.

What do you see? In a strikingly specific instance of mimicry, the patterns on the wings of this moth (Macrocilix maia) appear to resemble two flies feeding at a glistening bird dropping. This, coupled with a pungent odor that the moth emits, may be enough to dissuade a predator from considering a meal. Although flies are certainly edible, they nevertheless sometimes serve as models for mimicry because they are so quick and agile that most birds won't bother pursuing them. @chienleephotography

Photo Tip ☝️ Capturing insects in flight is no doubt the pinnacle of macro photography 🙌🏻 The secret is patience, persistence and manual focus. Hold the lens with your left hand underneath the focal ring so you can make small adjustments as needed. It seems hard at first but the results are nothing short of amazing!

So here it is, my no.1 personal favourite shot of 2019, and probably overall favourite shot I've taken so far, now with a well needed new crop and edit. 😁
I took this way back at the start of the spring and although I think my lighting has hugely improved since then, I'm still really very fond of it.
It was one of those rare sessions where everything seemed to go my way, there were insects everywhere.. oil beetles, bloody nose beetles, weevils and of course bees, and the weather was still cool enough that the insects were far from the peak of their mobility.. allowing me to return home with an absolute bag full of keeper shots, with this I feel being the crown jewel.
I was buzzing more than the bee and it was a really exciting start to what's been a really great season.
So I'm ending it here for this year, the macro lens is being swapped for the nifty-fifty for family photos until the spring 2020.
I'll probably post my top 9 collage at the end of the year to see what photos you guys loved the most, but until then have the best Christmas and I hope Santa brings you everything you wished for! Peace! ❤
