5 Disgusting Facts About Cockroaches

5 Disgusting Facts About Cockroaches


five disgusting facts about cockroaches the cockroaches one annoying and
troublesome insects that we humans still aren’t used to and probably never will
be this is even though roaches have adapted
to hang around us since forever and seems to be enjoying the relationship
there are lots of interesting and disgusting facts about roaches that many
of us do not know for example they are super bugs that can survive for weeks
with vital parts missing they love our ears and they can bite us when we
stopped leaving food for them cockroaches are tough survivors and getting rid of
them is ridiculously difficult cutting of a roach head does not even count as
death sentence because the pest can survive for weeks without it the roach
only does later because it doesn’t have a mouth with which to eat or drink
cockroaches can live without their hands because they do not use their heads the
same we do we humans died soon after decapitation because our bodies lose lots
of blood and blood pressure cockroaches do not have much blood or
blood pressure to begin with so their necks just clot and they continue
roaming around as if nothing happened even if we humans managed to find a way
around the massive loss of blood and blood pressure we would still be finished
because the nerves in our bodies need to be connected to our brains to survive we
also need our noses and mouths to breathe the bodies of roaches work
independently of their tiny brains they also breathe through small holes on
their bodies all these features allow cockroaches to
live for weeks without their heads they only succumb to hunger and thirst
because they have not figured out a way to eat and drink with their skin
interestingly the head of cockroach remains alive for hours after decapitation as evidenced by its moving antennae in
fact the head can remain alive for longer if it is refrigerated and given
enough nutrients according to one common cockroach fact
that has been appearing on the Internet this creatures hated when human touch
them so much that they often flee to start cleaning themselves of disgusting
human contact but it’s not what you think
cockroaches hate humans or anything else touching them because that simple
contact can be dangerous for their existence to be clear
cockroaches hate being around humans as much as humans hate being around this
disgusting insects cockroaches naturally flee from larger creatures human or not
because they know that any contact with larger creatures will often lead to
death in fact contact with almost any organism could have some residue on the
roach that could be detrimental to its survival in the case of humans it is the
natural oils that we unwittingly leave on anything we touch that oil can also
disrupt how the cockroach body works most affected are the antennae they seem
unremarkable to us but they are crucial to the cockroach survival they work as
the creatures nose and are required for smelling food and finding potential mate
those oils will reduce the pest ability to smell which is bad for the roach cockroaches are smarter than we think
they can even make decisions in groups just like many other insects and animals
several years back Dr. Jose Halloy of the free university of brussels belgium
conducted a study to observe how roaches think he put several of them inside a
dish with three homes and waited to see how they will divide themselves Dr.
Halloy observed that the roaches first came together touching each other with
their antennae after some time they divided themselves into the homes
equally for example 50 roaches split into two groups of 25 each when they
were given three homes with a capacity of 40 roaches each one grouped lived in
the first home and the other group lived in the second the third home was
abandoned all 50 roaches also opted to live in a single home when they were
given three homes that would accommodate over 50 roaches each termites and cockroaches belong to
the same order Blattodea so termites are technically cockroaches
interestingly termites were not considered cockroaches until 2018 before
then termites belong to the order I Isoptera
studies into the similarities between both creatures began in 1934 when
researchers observed that their guts contains similar microbes a research
paper published in 2007 finally confirmed that they were relatives and
recommended that the taxonomic rank be adjusted to put them under the same
family actually the paper suggested that the order Blattodea for cockroaches
and Isoptera for termites should be considered sub families under a new
family called Termitidae several scientists with entomological Society of
America refused this suggestion at the time because they did not want termites
to be considered cockroaches besides another termitidae family already
existed in the taxonomic rank and could cause confusion with the new suggested
termitidae family the ESA later backtrack and agreed to categorize
termites as cockroach under putting it to a vote in 2018 ESA reclassified the
termite order. Isoptera as a sub order and place it under the
cockroach Blattodea order instead of creating a new family as the 2007
paper suggested that does not mean you should call
termites cockroach though termites should be called termites and cockroaches
cockroaches remember that saying about knowing a tomato is a fruit but not
putting it into fruit salad a similar idea applies here knowledge is knowing
that a termite is a cockroach wisdom is not calling it a cockroach cockroaches love sugar they will give
you a thumbs up if you leave candy cakes fruits and juice with high sugar content
lying uncovered around your home leave raw sugar lying around and they will love
you forever pest control businesses discovered this in 1980s they observed
that sprinkling sugar in a location would leave roach milling around in no
time the businesses use that to their advantage and started to bait roaches with
glucose laced with insecticide the meal killed the roaches when they returned to
their homes other roaches who opened eat the remains of the dead which is not
surprising because these creatures will eat almost anything the scavenging
roaches also died as the body of the dead roaches still contain the poison
this went on for some time until the cockroach learned that sugar was
killing them cockroaches later began to resist this sugar their senses quickly
adjusted to detect sweet sugar as bitter many pest control businesses
discovered that too and replaced the glucose with fructose a different sugar
the roaches quickly caught on and started avoiding fructose as well
scientists traced this surprising switch to millions of years ago when roaches
first developed the ability to detect sweet but poisonous parts of certain
plants they ate as bitter that scale was genetically suppressed when they started
to live around humans and only returned when humans started to poison their food you

Mating frenzies, sperm hoards, and brood raids: the life of a fire ant queen – Walter R. Tschinkel


It’s June, just after a heavy rainfall, and the sky is filling with creatures
we wouldn’t normally expect to find there. At first glance,
this might be a disturbing sight. But for the lucky males and females
of Solenopsis invicta, otherwise known as fire ants,
it’s a day of romance. This is the nuptial flight, when thousands of reproduction-capable
male and female ants, called alates,
take wing for the first and last time. But even for successful males
who manage to avoid winged predators, this mating frenzy will prove lethal. And for a successfully mated female,
her work is only beginning. Having secured a lifetime supply of sperm
from her departed mate, our new queen must now single-handedly
start an entire colony. Descending to the ground, she searches for a suitable spot
to build her nest. Ideally, she can find somewhere
with loose, easy-to-dig soil— like farmland
already disturbed by human activity. Once she finds the perfect spot,
she breaks off her wings— creating the stubs
that establish her royal status. Then, she starts digging
a descending tunnel ending in a chamber. Here the queen begins laying her eggs,
about ten per day, and the first larvae hatch within a week. Over the next three weeks, the new queen relies on a separate batch
of unfertilized eggs to nourish both herself and her brood, losing half her body weight
in the process. Thankfully, after about 20 days, these larvae grow
into the first generation of workers, ready to forage for food
and sustain their shrunken queen. Her daughters
will have to work quickly though— returning their mother
to good health is urgent. In the surrounding area, dozens of neighboring queens
are building their own ant armies. These colonies
have peacefully coexisted so far, but once workers appear, a phenomenon known as brood-raiding
begins. Workers from nests
up to several meters away begin to steal offspring
from our queen. Our colony retaliates, but new waves of raiders
from even further away overwhelm the workers. Within hours, the raiders have taken
our queen’s entire brood supply to the largest nearby nest— and the queen’s surviving daughters
abandon her. Chasing her last chance of survival, the queen follows the raiding trail
to the winning nest. She fends off other losing queens
and the defending nest’s workers, fighting her way
to the top of the brood pile. Her daughters help their mother succeed
where other queens fail— defeating the reigning monarch,
and usurping the brood pile. Eventually,
all the remaining challengers fail, until only one queen—
and one brood pile— remains. Now presiding over several hundred workers
in the neighborhood’s largest nest, our victorious queen begins
aiding her colony in its primary goal: reproduction. For the next several years,
the colony only produces sterile workers. But once their population
exceeds about 23,000, it changes course. From now on, every spring, the colony will produce
fertile alate males and females. The colony spawns these larger ants
throughout the early summer, and returns to worker production
in the fall. After heavy rainfalls,
these alates take to the skies, and spread their queen’s genes
up to a couple hundred meters downwind. But to contribute
to this annual mating frenzy, the colony must continue to thrive
as one massive super-organism. Every day, younger ants feed the queen
and tend to the brood, while older workers
forage for food and defend the nest. When intruders strike, these older warriors fend them off
using poisonous venom. After rainfalls,
the colony comes together, using the wet dirt to expand their nest. And when a disastrous flood
drowns their home, the sisters band together
into a massive living raft— carrying their queen to safety. But no matter how resilient, the life of a colony must come to an end. After about 8 years,
our queen runs out of sperm and can no longer replace dying workers. The nest’s population dwindles,
and eventually, they’re taken over
by a neighboring colony. Our queen’s reign is over,
but her genetic legacy lives on.

Charlie Hunnam Sprinted Naked Through a Forest to Escape a Wasp Attack

Charlie Hunnam Sprinted Naked Through a Forest to Escape a Wasp Attack


-You just got back
from traveling. Where were you? -I was all over the place,
but for the last few months, few months leading up to the
holidays, I was in India. -Yeah, you were in India.
-Whoo! -What were you doing there?
Can we say what you were doing? -I was —
I’m shooting a TV show, a new TV show for Apple.
-Oh. -An adaptation of the novel
“Shantaram.” -Ah. And how —
It didn’t really go — I mean, the shooting went well,
and the project is great, but you didn’t have
the best time in India. -No, there were some challenges. I had a series of pretty
significant health issues that, as they went on,
seemed like a series of
assassination attempts. I got a — I got
a lung infection which turns into
a sinus infection. And then I got conjunctivitis
in both my eyes. [ Audience groans ]
Then I got an ear infection. Then I got strep throat,
then a bacterial gut infection. And then I got bitten
by a mosquito and contracted dengue fever. [ Audience exclaims ] -It is —
[ Laughter ] -Thank you.
[ Applause ] -They should have
put you in a box, and I had to touch you.
I mean, wow. -It was kind of confounding,
’cause I kind of pride myself on having impeccable
personal hygiene, but I think some of those things
sometimes go against you. I think my immune system
was too delicate because I’m too clean. -You’re too clean, so you got to
get out there and just start — -You got to roll around
in the mud a little bit. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -But you have a weird kind of
history of almost dying. -I do. I do. This year particularly. It was a strange year. -Hopefully it’s over with. -Well, we’ll see. I mean, I had a mosquito
in my room last night. -That doesn’t count.
That doesn’t count. -But it’s New York,
and it’s January, and I was on the eighth floor. -Think he’s, like,
a super mutant mosquito? -You know, I was worried,
because I don’t — I don’t know the ins and outs
of dengue fever. You have it for a period of
time, but then the antibodies
stay in your body, obviously, ’cause you have to get tested, and that’s the way
antibodies work. And I wondered,
if that mosquito bit me, does then that mosquito
contract dengue fever, and then the next person
who checks into that hotel — These are the things
you got to ask yourself. These are the things that I stay
up late night worrying about. -You’re trying to save lives
out here. -I am. You know, I’m doing
what I can for the people. -[ Laughs ] Wow. -It was a weird year.
It started off getting a — I went camping, and I got a deer
tick that burrowed into my leg, and I did not contract
Lyme disease, ’cause I once
had gotten a deer tick in the highlands of Scotland, which I didn’t even know
had Lyme disease, and I got Lyme disease. But I didn’t get Lyme disease. But a very strange thing
happened to me when I went camping
a few months later. I went out looking
for firewood one day, and it was end of the season.
It was kind of picked dry. And so I was pretty far
from my camp. And I was just wearing
some sweatpants and a t-shirt. And there were three trees
fallen into a triangle, and in those trees
was a mother lode of firewood. So I said,
“Alright, here we go.” And I got up, and I was… crouched down like this
picking up firewood, and all of a sudden, wham, like, a snakebite
in the perineum. -Where’s — The perineum,
where is that? -The perineum is that sweet
piece of no man’s land between the anus
and the scrotum. -Okay.
[ Applause ] -Alright, so —
-That is a suboptimal place to get bitten by a snake. -Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So, a snake jumped out and — -So, I —
That’s what it felt like. And I look down,
and there was no snake. So I was trying to process
what could have happened, and, bam, another shrill pain
in my ass cheek. -Okay. -Then one
in the back of my head, and then one under my armpit, and I realized I was under siege
from yellow jackets. I’d kicked over
a nest of yellow jackets. And as I was processing
this angry swarm coming at me — Sorry. I’m very bad
at microphone etiquette. As I was processing
this swarm coming at me, I got stung about another
10 times in about 5 seconds. So I took off running, as any,
you know, heroic figure would. I took off sprinting
through the forest and ran for about
a minute and a half and stopped to see
what was happening and immediately bam, bam, bam, got stung about
another five times. Now I’m starting
to get really worried, you know? I don’t know much
about yellow jackets. But I assume 20 bites
is probably — or stings is probably reaching
the threshold. -[ Laughing ] Oh, my God. -So, I ripped
all of my clothes off. I kicked my shoes off,
and I took all my clothes off. -Yeah.
-And then — And then put my shoes back on
and continued sprinting completely naked. [ Women cheering ] And this is all true. I realized at that moment I was
actually inside a nightmare, a recurring nightmare. I for many years had had this
recurring dream that I was — a nightmare that I was sprinting
for my life naked in a forest. In that moment, I was literally inside —
-Living — -I was living
my recurring nightmare. -Oh, my goodness. -And I haven’t had
that dream since. So it was something of
a prophecy or something, right? So I’m going to start — I’m going to start taking —
[ Cheers and applause ] I’m gonna start taking these
dreams a little more seriously. -That is unbelievable.
-Yeah. -So it was not a snake at all. -No.
-But, gosh, that’s awful. Did you have to go
to the hospital? -I did, but I —
Well, you know, it’s funny. I was very sick that day. And
my — I was with my girlfriend, and she went and got the park
ranger. I mean, we were way out. And she went and got a ranger,
and he came and looked at me. He said, “You’re probably
going to be okay.” And I was sort of okay that day, and then two days later,
I got very, very sick. And I spoke to my doctor,
and he said, “You had probably so much venom
in your system that your body starts to create
antibodies to fight the venom.” And then if I got stung again, because I have those antibodies
in my system now, I could have a bad reaction. So I’m supposed to carry
an EpiPen, but of course,
I’m an idiot, and I don’t. -Maybe you got superpowers
for a day. -Maybe.
-Like, maybe you — -They didn’t do me much good
in India, let me tell you. -No, that’s true.
[ Laughs ] I forgot about India.
Never mind. Yeah. -So it was a strange year, 20– But we’re in a new decade now. -Here we are. Yeah.
-We’ll see. -Oh, please. It’s going to be
the best year for you yet.

Woman Lived With Cockroach In Her Ear For 9 Days

Woman Lived With Cockroach In Her Ear For 9 Days


Is this real life right now these things just
freak me out. Just imagine if you found out you had one
in your ear and doctors cant take it out for 9 days. I would be freaking out and would for sure
need medication to calm down. Hows it going Youtube I am landon Dowlatsingh
and this is where I talk about the news or anything else trending in the world. And make sure to stay till the end of this
video because I will be replying to all of your questions from the last video. Ok this right here is Katie Holley who woke
up one day with strange pain in her ear. So she investigated it to see if she can find
something and she actually discovered two coachroach legs poking out from her ear. Her husband tried to remove it with tweezers
but the cochroach would just wiggle deeper in the ear canal. Katie was taken to the hospital to have the
coachroach removed from her ear canal. Later that day an ear, nose, and throat specialist
managed to removed the cochroachs entire head, upper tose and ramining limbs and its antennae
in pieces. When everyone thought it was all removed Katie
still felt something in her ear and guess what 9 days later she had 6 more pieces of
coachroach still stuck in her ear. This next story is pretty messed up and its
becoming to common. A woman in her 20s in London was doused by
acid. Police and Fire fighters were called onto
the scene and you can see fire fighters hoseing down this woman and trying to stop her from
burning. Police right now are hunting for a man who
is believed to have carried out the targeted attack and fled. People took it to twitter to say this. Feel physically sick after walking past a
poor innocent person getting hosed down by firefighters after being caught in the middle
of an acid fight in Brixton. So scary that this can happen on our doorstep. Hope they are okay. Moving on to 13 yr old Trenton McKinley who
was involved in a very serious accident. Trenton was playing with his friends in March
in a trailer being pulled by a dune buggy. Well his friend suddenly slammed on the breaks
and the trailer Trenton was in flipped over and slammed his head into the concrete. He was rushed to the emergency room at USA
Medical Centre where doctors told his parents that he had seven skull fractures and he would
most likely be in a vegetative state where he can be kept alive by machines. Imagine this happens, someone you know or
love goes into a vegtable state what do you do. Do you keep that person alive or do you pull
the plug I would feel like I am killing that person if I pull that plug it’s a very taught
situation. Trentons parents were in this predicament. Trenton was declared brain dead, and was barley
breathing. His parents actually made theheart-breaking
decision to donate his organs to children in need of transplants. 5 kids actually needed organs that matched
him. The parents also said it was unfair to keep
bringing him back because it was just damaging his organs even more. So the parents were thinking about the kids
there son can save. The day before Trenton was meant to be taken
off of life support he began to show signs of brain activity. A miracle happens and Trenton woke up from
his coma. He has had 3 brain surgeries so far and was
finally allowed to go home. His life is for sure different now but its
insane this kid was just a day away from getting his power pulled and all the machines turned
off. Right now Tesla has been having a ton of problem. They are so backed up in production and by
the time every get there self driving cars all the other car companies will catch up
to Tesla. I mean they are already catching up with self
parking vechiles and lane assistance where you don’t need your hands completely on
the wheel. People are predicting that Tesla wont be the
innovators anymore. Well Elon Musk the CEo of Tesla believes in
his company so much he just bought shared worth close to 10 million dollars. That’s about 33,000 Tesla shares. I think these days its hard to bet into the
car industry. If Tesla doesn’t work out maybe we should
be investing in Uber. They seem to be the innovative ones. Nasa has been working with Uber to create
Uber in the Sky which is a Taxi and delivery service. Nasa is ensuring they will be the first ones
to dominate the air. So imagine ordering Uber Eats and it takes
just seconds to be delivered to you. There might soon be thousands of drones flying
in the sky delivering food, or packages. And also Uber has been working for a long
time on uber self driving cars or helicopters that can transport people to destinations
very quickly. The future seems to be here right now. A huge fortnite update, Thanas has just arrived
in the game. I have more updates on the Team 10 situation. Team 10 was a team create by Jake Paul and
has grown to become one of the most successful youtube squads. Well it seems to be un-folding under Jake
and his empire seems to be fading away. We all know CEO England is my city Nick Crompton
has stepped down. Chance & Anthony has also decide to quit team
10. These were Jake Pauls best friend. Tessa Brooks has also left and I might have
the reason why this is all happening. There has been a management shift in the company
and everyone is hating it. Apparently Jake Pauls dad Greg Paul has taken
over Jakes business and Logans business and for the past month Greg Paul audited both
companies and realize a lot of money is being spent in the company so Greg decide to cut
a ton of expenses. He fired some editors and other employees
in the company. CEO Nick Crompton doesn’t like this direction
of the business, and it seems to be rubbing people the wrong way. There are other reports saying that Greg Paul
might be fusing Jake & Logans businesses together to just make one super company. I am not sure that would be the best deicison. Well it seems like the Youtubers who quit
team 10 might have another job working with another massive Youtuber Faze banks. He took it to twitter to say this. Got open rooms for all you guys @TheNickCrompton
@imchancesutton @ImTessaBrooks Right now Jake paul has been losing a ton
of views. Hes still making millions but his company
seems to be going into the wrong direction. Instead gaining 6-7 million views a day on
Youtube he is gaining 2-3 million. I really hope Jake figures his company out
and hopefully hiring his dad can work out for him if not I hope he has the guts to fire
his dad. As soon as they hired him things seem to quickly fall apart.

What to Do When You See a Spider

What to Do When You See a Spider


Spider. The word alone is enough to make me take pause,
and even make the hairs stand up on my neck. And there are so many kinds! Daddy long legs. Tarantula. Black widow. Peter Parker. Oops too much Marvel there. Anyway, Spiders are spooky and crawly, and
at the same time, also kinda cool. So, what should you do the next time you see
one? You know, besides scream and run out of the
room like I do? Together we’ll try to put our collective
arachnophobia in check and figure it out. If you’re scared of spiders, you’re not
alone. In fact, in the US, 1 in 10 people are affected
by a phobia, and 40% of those phobias are related to bugs. If one of those people is you (I know one
of them is me) here’s the bad news – there are nearly 40,000 different types of spiders
in the world, and almost all of them are venomous. YIKES! Before we freak out together, I should note
that very few of those venomous spiders produce a poison toxic enough to cause harm to humans
at all, and since the use of antivenom became commonplace in 1950’s, the instances of
people falling victim to seriously dangerous spiders are practically non-existent. Which isn’t to say you shouldn’t be careful
if you come across any of those known to be toxic to humans, but it certainly isn’t
something to keep you from enjoying a nice summer camping trip either. Spider bites of any kind aren’t as common
as you would think, considering the countless urban legends and stories on the internet. That’s because, believe it or not, spiders
don’t want to bite you. There are even documented cases where people
have lived in homes that were unknowingly also home to thousands of the infamously dangerous
“brown recluse” spider for years, and were never bitten. And even if a spider wanted to bite a person,
few of them have teeth strong enough to puncture the skin. Most reported “spider bites” turn out
to be caused by something else, like fleas or an allergic reaction to a chemical. In one study from southern California, it
was found that out of almost 200 reported spider bites, less than 8 of them were. The rest turned out to be something else altogether. Does that make you any less likely to scream
when you see one? Yeah… me neither. But it is good to know that while seeing one
may give me goosebumps, the chances of a spider hurting me is somewhere around zero. Even so, it doesn’t do much to change my
initial instinct to squash one the moment after I stop being frozen in fear. But it probably should, and here’s why. Spiders are a vital part of not only the outdoor
ecosystem, but the indoor one as well. I know we like to think of our homes as totally
insulated from the world outside, and I swear I’m not trying to frighten or freak you
out, but inside your house right now there are anywhere from a dozen to 200 species of
arthropods going about their business, and you weren’t even aware of any of them until
right now. If you’re wondering what an arthropod is,
it’s an invertebrate creature with an exoskeleton, segmented body, and jointed appendages. Think of it as fancy talk for “bug”, and
yes, that includes spiders. Most of these spiders live quiet, happy, secretive
lives out of our sight and mind. The most common are “cobweb” and “cellar”
spiders. Cobweb spiders, sometimes called “comb-footed”
spiders, are mostly dark or black in color, while Cellar spiders, or “daddy-long-legs”
are often white or greyish in color. Both build webs, where they then patiently
wait for their prey to get caught. Cellar spiders have even been known to leave
their own webs to hunt for other spiders that may be infringing on their turf, pretending
to be “caught” before turning their neighbor into dinner. Clever girl. Less common are barn spiders, who write messages
in their webs to help the talking pig they’ve befriended win a medal at the state fair. But that sure would be some spider. Spiders will chow down on just about anything
they catch. And most of the bugs they catch are probably
more annoying, or likely to harm you, than it is. Like flies and mosquitos. Just something to keep in mind before you
decide to go smoosh. If you see one of these common, harmless spiders
in your home, and it isn’t near where someone eats or sleeps (and you can stomach it) you
may just want to make friends with your 8-legged roommate. Still, if you want it gone, I totally understand. Consider giving it a new home outside. You can carefully cover it with a container
like a glass jar and slide something under it and bring it outside. Note that I said you can. You know, I did just that the other day, and
it felt good to be kind to another life form, and I felt stronger for it. “B-buh-but what if I DO get bitten by a
spider? Huh? You said it wasn’t likely but you didn’t
say it was impossible either!” Fair enough. If you find yourself in the rare position
where a spider does manage to get a piece of you, here’s what you want to do. First, if you can, don’t slap or squash,
but trap it. Try to isolate it and get it into a container
or baggy. This way you can identify the species and
figure out what treatment, if any, will be needed. Usually, an ice pack is the only treatment
you need – however, if you do experience any symptoms like nausea, sweating, muscle spasms
or increasing pain, go get medical help right away. Despite everything I’ve said so far about
how spiders are mostly harmless to people, and most are downright helpful, let’s be
honest. You’re watching this video because for some
reason, even though they can be scary and the sight of them makes your skin crawl, you
just can’t help but be fascinated by them. The bigger the better. The weirder the story the better. Like when it “rains” spiders in Brazil! You may have seen some videos of this on social
media. And while, in the clips, it looks like spiders
are falling from the sky, they’re hanging in a giant web to catch those “nuisance
insects” I spoke about earlier. This species is a rare type of social spider
that builds a community web that’s so fine, it’s almost imperceptible – which is why
it looks like they’re just flying. So, while it’s unnerving, you don’t need
to fear spider rain. Well, I mean, you probably should, but it’s
not a real thing, so you can relax. And what about those stories you’ll hear
about where someone couldn’t get rid of an itch in their ear and when they went to
the doctor, they found a spider nesting there? Ugh! Here’s the thing – the bad pun I just
made by saying “HEAR’s the thing” after mentioning the spider in the ear story – Ear
aches are a lot more common and painful than any dangerous situation that involves a spider. So next time you see a spider, just remember
this video, stay calm, and know your friendly neighborhood spider is just that. Unless you happen to be a fly that understands
English and watches YouTube videos. And if you are, welcome to the Bright Side
my fly friend. Watch out for spiders! Okay. Still here? Good. Are you still afraid of spiders? Let me know down in the comments. If you learned something new today then give
this video a “like” and share it with a friend. But – hey! We didn’t talk about vacuuming up the little
buggers! That’s okay. We have over 2,000 other cool videos for you
to check out. All you have to do is choose the left or right
video, click on it, and enjoy! Stay on the Bright Side of life!

Identifying American Cockroaches Nymph and Adult Roaches


So you zoom in there, this is a nymph the reason why we know its a nymph its wings aren’t fully developed, in fact you can’t see wings in that at all right now it’s fairly good size though it’s a little confusing because it looks like this
nymph looks like certain adults of other species
this nymph actually resembles a little bit the adult of an oriental and
also the adult of a Turkistan but if you look at this nymph it actually
has horizontal lines on the back here which is a tell-tale sign of the American Cockroach so this is the actual adult American Cockroach fully grown and interestingly enough it again this
is actually almost the same size of the nymph we just picked up a moment ago so it’s not much bigger than the other one but, again
you’ll notice the wings on it on the American Cockroach there are full wings they go pass the bottom of the roach and American Cockroaches are a little darker in color then some of the other species that look
similar to this again Turkistan roaches are found in
Phoenix and they look very similar to this the females actually look different so a lot
of times you’ll see an adult male, a Turkistan roach that looks like this and
a female which will look like an Oriental Roach that’s how you identify the Turkistan this one we didn’t find any female to resemble this so we are confident this an
American Roach problem here at this home in Phoenix.

The Hairy Flower Wasp is native to Australia and can be identified by their purple-bluish shinny wings, black body and short antennae. The adult Hairy Flower Wasp often feeds on nectar They are often seen flying just above ground level around compost heaps, wood heaps and decaying tree stumps. Being strong burrowers the female Hairy Flower Wasp searches for beetle larva to lay their eggs. First the beetle larva are stung and paralyze, the female lays her eggs and when the baby wasps are hatched they feeds on the beetle larva. The Hairy Flower Wasp can administer a nasty sting. However they are quit placid and not aggressive, unless provoked.
