How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Use Epsom Salt on an Insect Bite

How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Use Epsom Salt on an Insect Bite


Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now, in
this clip, I am going to show you another way where you can relieve the pain and symptoms
from insect bites and bee stings. Now, the use of Epsom salt has been shown to actually
have some temporary effect in relieving some of the symptoms. Now, the thing about Epsom
salt is that you have to add 1 teaspoon Epsom salt with hot water to dissolve the Epsom
salt, then once you’ve dissolved it in the hot water, you put the solution to chill in
the fridge and then for about 10 or 20 minutes. Then you take it out and apply this nice cold,
chilly, chilled solution on the affected area for about 20 minutes. So, what I have here
is I’ve already got some Epsom salt and I’ve made a paste out of it. You know, I’ve chilled
in the refrigerator, so it?s nice and chilled and I’m going to apply it to the skin. So
for example, say this is the area that was bitten or stung by the bee or bitten by the
mosquito. I need to clean this area very well first before I apply anything. So, this is
a bowl of soapy water. I’m going to clean the whole area around and then I’m going to
pat it dry because you want the paste or the solution to stay on and have direct contact
with the skin itself, the affected area itself. So then, what I do is with this solution,
I can, if its too watery, then you can actually, if it’s too watery, then I guess you could
dab a very clean pad into the solution and then you could just apply over the infected
or affected area on your skin. But if the paste is thick enough, if the consistency
is thick enough, like this, then you can just apply a little bit of it to cover the whole
area with the Epsom salt solution. And then, it would help you relieve the symptoms and
the itchiness as well, because the coldness, if you chill it, also will give you additional
relief from the symptoms from the bites or the stings.

Shevron Window Sox Review – Ventilation & Insect Protection for Sleeping in Your Car

Shevron Window Sox Review – Ventilation & Insect Protection for Sleeping in Your Car


after four years of ownership and twelve
months of solid daily use while touring Australia it’s time to review my window
socks which are made by Chevron now window sox are a simple device which fit over
your windows and they’re normally made so that you can shade the inside of the
car while you’re driving around and have your windows down but as I sleep inside
my car I have a bed inside for when I’m touring they let me wind the windows
down so I can get some airflow into the car and yet not let any mosquitoes or
midges inside the mesh it’s made from is extremely fine there’s almost no insect
I can think of that can get past two layers of this mesh and in the time I’ve
been using it I’ve had virtually nothing inside the car get in so as far as
protection from mosquitoes and midges they are excellent now when I fit these
I typically pull up in camp at night put them on wind the window down and then
I’ll take them off again during the day while I’m driving around so wear and
tear wise is fairly minimal that stops some fluffing around and a lot of UV
damage so I can’t really talk about how long that lasts with a lot of
a sun exposure because typically I’ll take them off again during the day once
I’m driving like I said so they’re not getting hit by the Sun all day long but
these two have both held up very well there’s a few little nicks here and
there in them but otherwise they’re solid
so window sox work simply just pulling off it’s just basically like a
sock now every one of them is custom made to a different model of car so I
bought these ones specifically for the rear doors of a Defender you just pull it
open put it over the top and you just gotta be careful because of the sharp edges of
the door of a Defender it could rip just put it down wind your window down and it’s
fitted that stays in place perfectly it’s a very simple device but absolutely
brilliant for when you are needing to stay inside a car and get
some ventilation in saying that they’ll have noticed that
because the mesh is so fine actually in some ways stops air getting in and unless
it’s a big breeze blowing through even with both socks one on each side I can
still feel the temperature inside the car stays warmer with the air then it
does outside so it is still a bit of a thermal barrier but the condensation in
the car is virtually non-existent while wearing the window sox on my doors so
it’s been a brilliant device you just buy them directly from from Chevron or
you buy them on eBay or some auto parts stores as far as build quality very
happy but in saying that the very first pair I purchased they were custom-made
for me because there were none in stock they’re actually cut incorrectly so I
contacted the seller and they contacted Chevron and they sent me out a
brand new pair which fitted perfectly so customer service is there which is great
and I believe they are made in Australia as well. They’re fairly simply
designed it’s really just the mesh and on the base it has elastic which pulls
it in as well as these two tabs for velcroing down on the sides of the
door but I never needed to use these because once the doors shut it stays
in place just fine but like I said each individual sock is made for a specific
door so you just need to search around for the correct fit and it would be a
perfect fit without any folds and stuff like you see some really poorly made
ones it’s a beautiful thing so if you intend to sleep inside your car for
touring then getting a pair of window sox will really help with the
condensation issues and stop getting all the mosquitoes midges and other
creatures crawl inside your car at night so definitely recommend it very happy

5 Infectious Facts About Leprosy | What the Stuff?!

5 Infectious Facts About Leprosy | What the Stuff?!


“Try this one…” Leprosy gets a bad rap. Sure, it’s preferable to not have leprosy,
but people who have it are neither victims of their own sins – as was
believed in the past – nor highly contagious and doomed. DOOMED! Leprosy is still a serious health
concern in a few populations around the world, but it’s actually very treatable
these days, especially if it’s caught early, and it has a low transmission rate.
But the true facts about leprosy are still fascinating – some morbidly so. Here are five of them. Armadillos are the only known carrier of
leprosy other than humans in the entirety of the
animal kingdom. The disease is caused by infection with
the bacteria mycobacterium leprae and it’s been genetically proven that
armadillos carry the exact same strain that we do. But digging deeper than that it’s humanities fault that armadillos
have leprosy to begin with! This is surprising, because many zoonotic
diseases – that is, diseases that can be passed between humans and other animals –
originated in other animals and only started infecting us when we encroached on
their natural habitats – like the flu or Ebola but not so with leprosy. Researchers think that the disease
wasn’t present at all in the western hemisphere before Christopher Columbus
spearheaded Europe’s lasting contact with the Americas in the late 1400s and armadillos are only indigenous to
the Western Hemisphere. So it looks like they got it from us. Susceptibility to infection with M. leprae
is genetic and rare. Science hasn’t identified exactly what genes or more
specifically what variants of genes allow the bacteria to take hold but at least a dozen have been
implicated. All of them are responsible for some
aspect of immune system function on a cellular level, meaning they affect how
your immune system cells target and respond to bodily invaders. Most of our immune systems can identify
and destroy leprosy bacteria without a problem. One of the premier questions in genetics
is how we can encourage specialized cells to act like generalized stem cells. Mycobacterium leprae do exactly that –
they target your nervous system’s Schwann cells. These cells are part of the
support system that insulates your peripheral nerves – the ones that aren’t
in your brain and spine. Schwann cells help those nerves grow, regenerate, and
function. Leprosy reprograms the Schwann cells.
No one is entirely sure how, but M. leprae bacteria take those cells and make them
revert to a stem cell-esque state. That is, they allow the cells
to convert into other types of cells. The converted cells then migrate through the
body to join up with tissue of their new type. The hijacked Schwann cells bring
the M. leprae bacteria along with them spreading the infection. If we could
figure out how leprosy bacteria do that we could potentially cure the disease
and use the mechanism to create treatments for degenerative diseases
like Alzheimer’s. Written records of leprosy
stretch back to 1500 BCE. That’s when it’s first mentioned in the
Egyptian Ebers papyrus it’s also mentioned in other ancient
writings including asian area texts dating back to 600 BCE. But researchers have found even older
evidence of the disease. Skeletal remains found in modern day
India indicate that leprosy was active in at least 2000 BCE. That places
it as one of the top ten oldest diseases known today. Medieval images of people with leprosy
involved deformed features sunken noses, shriveled hands and feet that’s not because those extremities
just fell off. Without treatment, leprosy bacteria caused damage to tissues
throughout the body including lesions on the skin, cysts on the bones, and
destruction of the peripheral nerves. As this damage continues, the body’s
resources for healing wounds becomes seriously taxed. It doesn’t help that
with nerve damage you’re not always aware of minor injuries so you might not
take steps to protect and heal hurts as they happen. Eventually, the body begins mining its own tissues
for resources to fix the damage. Cartilage becomes particularly valuable.
The body steals it from everywhere, but the effects are the most obvious in your
extremities: fingers, toes, and nose. So, what diseases morbidly fascinate you?

That’s right They’re the pride lands termite experts. I’ve heard of are wolves, but I’ve never seen one. I’m not surprised They’re very shy they come out only at night and pretty much keep it themselves They love to eat termites even more than you do not possible So the art wolves keep the pride lands termites under control. That’s right At least until now I sure hope nothing happened to them. Yeah, we better talk to the yard wolves and make sure they’re okay Where do they live? Well, they tend to roam around but their favorite places to sleep are empty aardvark dens Empty aardvark dens, that’s funny.

Insect Pest Control : Five Ways to Get Rid of Termites

Insect Pest Control : Five Ways to Get Rid of Termites


Hi, I’m Trevor, with Monster Pest Control.
We’re located in American Fork, Utah. We’re talking about how to rid your home of insects.
The topic, is 5 ways of getting rid of termites, or helping your house be rid of termites.
Most importantly, is an inspection. When you do an inspection, have a professional come
out. Check the house, to make sure any of the wood has not been eaten. Generally, in
areas that are open, such as this, that we can see what’s going on. Another way, is making
sure when you come down, like down to the floor areas, that you’re checking to see if
there’s any frass, or markings from termites, and those markings generally will look like
dirt, brought up along the edge, and they flare out, and that’s where the colony is
basically hanging out, and being inside the wood, wood to earth contact. Here, well basically,
we have wood against concrete, which is fine, which we’ll take outside in just a moment,
to show you about making sure you have no wood to earth contact. Moisture is a killer,
also for homes and termites, is making sure that everything is dry. Utility rooms, washer
and dryer, all your plumbing, make sure you don’t have any drips. Those can cause termites
to come into the house. Now, let’s go outside and take a look out there, to see some other
ways of getting rid of termites. We’re outside now. We’re still talking about the termites,
and a couple of things to watch out for. When you walk around your home, make sure you have
no wood to earth contact, where the wood is basically touching the dirt, right up against
your home. Also, if you notice here, someone has put this piece of wood here, so when the
water doesn’t splash down on to the house, which is another problem too, is as water
gets onto this wood, termites are going to come up and eat this wood, so always make
sure you remove these kinds of items, away from the house, as far away as you can. No
wood piles next to the home. Those can cause termite issues and problems. Water is an issue
on the outside. Make sure you have no pooling water. The earth is dug out right here, that
you can actually get, and pool that water, which can be a real problem. Termites do an
estimated, over what fire, flood, damage, in one year, and one termite colony could
eat this whole piece of wood, in about six to eight months, time frame, so make sure
that you have it always inspected. Treat it if necessary, and when you treat it, make
sure you have a qualified company to come out, treat the house. They’ll use what they
call a trench and rod. They’ll trench along the house, and treat down into those areas.
Slabs, they’ll drill the slabs, put the material down underneath where the slab is, and treat
that. A lot of times you can actually do a partial treatment, which is when you find
termites in one area of your home, you can have just that area treated, and that will
generally take care of any problems or issues, that you have, depending on what state or
what location your home is in.

Insect Pest Control : How to Get Rid of Ants Naturally

Insect Pest Control : How to Get Rid of Ants Naturally


Hello my name is Trevor, I work with Monster
Pest Control. We are located in American Fork, Utah. Today we are talking about how to rid
your home of insects. This topic is talking about how to rid your house naturally from
ants. I’m going to try, do a mixture of vinegar and water. Vinegar, half vinegar, half water.
And what you do is after you’ve mixed your vinegar and water together, you get a fine
mist of your spray and you go around all your doorways and windows. And you spray up and
down all around where they are trailing around all of the areas. Do this around all your
doors and windows around your house including inside, if you need to do it inside the house
where ever it might be. If you find the actual sight of the ants and their nest, you can
take some boiling water and pour it directly into the nest. That will eliminate the colony.
Another way of getting rid of ants naturally on the outside of your home or inside is by
using chili powder. With the chili powder you put it where you find the ants. If you
find a trail of ants that are coming into your house or by a window seal just pour a
little bit of chili powder along the area that you find and they will basically they’ll
come to it, take it back to the nest and they’ll die off.
