(upbeat music) – This is Brandie with
the Mathison-Klein Group at Keller Williams Realty. And today, we are here
with Tom Kleinschnitz from All American Home Services. And we are going to be
talking all about termites. – Termites, my favorite bug. (laughing) – Tom, thank you so much
for joining us today. – It’s my pleasure to be here. My pleasure. – So, you know so much about termites, and so many people don’t
know anything about termites. – Correct. – So, can you share with us–
– Yes. – All the details that we
need to know about termites. – Alright, great. Well, first of all, the one thing you need to know about termites is they eat wood and they
eat it very ferociously. So, it’s a big, billion dollar industry right now in America. So, if you’re having a
home inspection done, you should also have a
termite inspection done. – Definitely. – Make sure that you
don’t have any termites, alive or previous damage in the home, so. – And so, from my understanding, there’s two different types of termites. Is that correct? – On a general scale, yes. Well, there’s more than
two, but generally, we look at termites as either subterranean or dry wood termites. – And explain the
difference between those. – Okay, so subterranean
termites live in the ground, and then they come up
through, from the ground, into your home, and forge around for any cellulose-type material. So, it doesn’t always
have to be wood either. It can be, you know, drywall paper or anything like that, so.
– Okay. – Any kind of cellulose-type material. – Dry woods tend to fly in. They tend to like hardwoods. So, you’ll find them
more in older buildings. – Okay. – Like, downtown Clermont,
there’s a quite a few of them down there. So they like hardwoods as preferred, subterraneans like softer wood. – Okay. And so, how can you tell if
there’s evidence of termites? Well there’s several ways that we use. First of all, visually,
your eyes and a flashlight is the best thing. So, we’re gonna be looking
for gallery damage, exit holes, ways they come
in and out of the home. Those type of issues
show up pretty readily. – [Brandie] Okay.
– Yeah. – [Brandie] And so,
what do they look like? – [Tom] Well, they look
like little white bugs. They really do.
– Do they, okay. – [Tom] They’re about, maybe
a quarter of an inch long, depending on the species. And it depends what type, they have, they have workers and they have soldiers. And soldiers look quite a bit different. – [Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] They look like
those big, red-headed ants. They got big mandibles on the front. – [Brandie] Kinda like
a big carpenter ant? – [Tom] Kinda like a carpenter ant, yeah. – [Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] But with a lighter colored body. – [ Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] And they defend
their colonies very well, so. – So, what happens if someone thinks that they might have termites, or– – Well, the first thing is not to panic. – Okay. – Termites, they’re easy to kill. So, the treatments we have
nowadays are extremely good. – Okay. – So, unless the home
is extensively damaged, it takes a long time for a
home to be extensively damaged. So, termites can be in
your home for five years before you’ll even see any
signs of termite activity whatsoever. – Really?
Okay. – Yeah, so. – So, let’s say you’re
doing a home inspection, and you find termite
damage that’s on a home, and it’s not super extensive. Is that something that should
necessarily be a deal breaker? Or is that something that could
be remediated pretty easily? – Uh, it’s actually can be
remediated pretty easily. We don’t know the extent of damage unless you’re actually
gonna take the drywall off and inspect the interior wood. But if we have minor damage shown, there’s a good chance that’s a good sale, ’cause the house is in good structural, it’s a good structurally sound home. – Okay. – I personally bought a home
that had termite damage. – Okay. – Yeah, so, once we treat the home, then we know the home doesn’t have any, is not gonna have any live termites, and you should be good to go. – Okay.
– Yeah. – And I know that you really
know your termite stuff. You also happen to own a
pest control company as well. – Yes we do.
– Is that correct? – That’s correct.
– Okay. And you offer termite, termite warr– – Termite treatment.
– Yes. – So we offer the treatment,
and we warranty the home. – Okay.
– Yeah. – Wonderful. – So, if we’re gonna
do the home inspection, we can do a good inspection on it. And then if there is
some type of evidence, we can treat is as a discount. We always discount our
homes (mumbles) clients. – Okay. And so, if someone has an interest in utilizing your services, for either their home inspection or pest control, how would they reach out to you? – Same way as before, you
can go to our website, AmericanHomeServicesFL.com,
or call us at 352-429-7062. – Wonderful. Alright guys. Well that’s a wrap for today. Thank you so much for joining us. And remember, when it
comes to your real estate, remember BrandieSells.com. (upbeat music)
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath with another
frequently asked question regarding yeast infections. Can somebody have a yeast infection with no
symptoms? Well, they can, but it’s highly unlikely,
more likely that they are experience symptoms but not really noticing that they actually
have the symptom themselves. The symptoms may be noticed by those around them. It could
be digestive noises or it could be body odor. And it could be likely that this person has
had these symptoms for so long that they’ve actually grown used to them, which is quite
common. Many people are used to having odd bowel motions,
lots of gas and burping, particularly men will find this most amusing and a normal part
of being a male. And some women may experience recurring vaginal infections and find this
a normal part of being a woman. It’s not until they talk to friends or family or their doctor
that they realize that these are not a normal part of being male or female. In fact, they
are symptoms of an underlying yeast infection. Yes, somebody usually has got a symptom or
a sign with having a yeast infection that will be apparent, maybe not to them, but may
be to other people. If you’ve got family or friends and you’re concerned about something
that you think could be Candida, perhaps talk to your health care professional or a trusted
friend, and they may be able to tell you whether they believe it’s a normal occurring thing
or not. So I hope that answers your question.

While they may not physically be the most
dangerous creatures in the wild, insects certainly hold their ground when it comes to danger
to us vulnerable humans. Today, we count 10 of the deadliest insects out in the wild. 10. Kissing Bug The kissing bug received it’s appropriate
name, because they’re known to kiss people near or in the mouth during the night while
you sleep – and by kiss, I mean they suck your blood. These little blood suckers are
responsible for spreading the deadly Chagas disease, which results in over 14,000 deaths
every year. 9. Giant Japanese/Asian Hornet
These giant hornets can achieve lengths of up to 3 inches full grown, and fly in small
numbers compared to their bee relatives. A group as little as 20 hornets can destroy
an entire hive of honeybees. They have a very painful string which in some cases can be
lethal, and can trigger allergic reactions, it even has an enzyme in its venom that can
dissolve human tissue. 8. Siafu, also known as Safari Ants
Imagine a colony of ants, so large, it can tear through the African countryside and obliterate
everything in it’s path. Sounds crazy right? But it’s real, these ants have up to 20
million ants in a singly colony. When there’s a food shortage, the colony as a group will
march through the lands to find food. While they’re not technically difficult to avoid,
the very young or elderly can quickly find themselves victims of asphyxiation and it’s
estimated that between 15-60 people die each year.
7. Black Spitting Thick Tail Scorpion Try saying that 3 times quickly..While they’re
not technically insects, I’ve included them in this list because they’re among the most
dangerous species of scorpions. Most of them live in South Africa, specifically in the
deserts. They’re most known for their massive tails which can end up as much as the rest
of the scorpion. They can spit venom from their tails, and their stings can cause severe
pain, paralysis and even death. You do NOT want to find one of these guys in your shoe.
6. Locusts This may seem a strange pick for number 6,
as Locusts do not directly harm humans at all.. However, they’re relentless when it comes to consuming
plants. Every year, swarms of locusts decimate thousands of acres of crops in a short period
of time which causes starvation and this indirectly results in many deaths each year.
5. Fire Ants These pesky little bugs tend to build large
mounds in sand or soil. They feed on plant life, and occasionally crickets and smaller
insects. Sounds innocent you say? Wrong. When fire ants are bothered, they sting with a
venomous prick that feels like it’s burning with fire, hence the name, and the skin swells
up into a painful pustule. A couple of stings can be treated quickly but when the ant’s
swarm, you’re in trouble. 4. TseTse Fly
These insects are large biting flies that inhabit much of mid-continental Africa, between
the Sahara and the Kalahari deserts. They feed on the blood animals and they carry a
deadly disease called the sleeping sickness. This disease starts out with fevers, headaches,
itchiness and joint pains. Eventually this moves on to confusion, poor coordination,
numbeness and trouble sleeping, and if left untreated it can eventually lead to death.
As of 2010 it caused around 9,000 deaths per year, down from 34,000 in 1990.
3. African Honey Bee The Afrizanized Honey Bee, also known as the
Killer Bee, are a hybrid species created by cross-breeding the African honey bees with
various European honey bees such as the Italian bee. They were first introduced to Brazil
in the 1950s to increase honey production. However, in 1957, 26 swarms accidentally escaped
quarantine and since then have spread throughout South and Central America. They arrived in
North America in 1985. They will attack with the slightest provocation in large numbers
and will chase the victim much further than other types of honey bees and cause thousands
of deaths every year. 2. Fleas
Fleas may look like pesky, harmless critters. But they are actually directly responsible
for the spread of the Bubonic Plague from their rat hosts to humans. Without treatment,
the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within four days. The Bubonic
plague, among a couple of other plagues, Is believed to be the cause of the Black Death
that swept through Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated 25 million people,
or between 30-60% of the European population at that time.
1. Anopheles Mosquito The Anopheles mosquito is a sub-species of mosquito most known for the transmission
of malaria. The female mosquito carries a parasite, which doesn’t harm the mosquito.
When the mosquito bits a human to feed on blood, it injects this parasite into the human’s
blood stream. The parasites then travel to the liver where they mature and reproduce.
Symptoms of Malaria begin 10 to 15 days after being bitten, and can cause fever, fatigue,
vomiting, headaches, yellow skin, seizures, coma or even death. In 2012, it’s estimated
that there were over 200 million cases of malaria, killing over half a million of those
who were infected, many of them children.
I hate insects. Especially, I really really really hate cockroaches. They are dirty, right? But they’re so creepy. And they are too fast. They disappear so quick. When it happens I go crazy thinking that they run all around my room. I really hate cockroaches. When you see a hive, don’t, no. Never touch it. Bees are really aggressive and they might have some poison. Bees are scary. Where is the fly? I can’t stand this non-stop buzzing sound
around my ears. You know what I’m talking about, right? Flies are very annoying. It is so itchy. I knew it. I was bitten by a mosquito. Yeah, I know some insects don’t hurt me, but… Hey, insects! Please don’t come around me. Please~
Hi! I am Dr. Adrienne Mulligan. I am the owner
of Camp Verde Veterinary Clinic. I am here today on behalf of expertvillage.com, and
I am here to talk to you about taking care of cats with critical conditions, critical
emergencies and health issues. So one of the most common diseases that kittens and cats
get, that looks pretty ugly, are some upper respiratory infections. And there are few
bacteria that cause these. One of them is a herpes virus. The herpes virus is a virus
that they get usually from their mother, or from other cats, where they are born. It is
not anything that we can get from them. It is not a human herpes virus, but because of
some herpes virus family, it does the same thing as people herpes virus, it stays in
the nerves, and it is brought about by stress. And so when they are young, and their immune
system is not very good, then they get really sick with it. They get yellow discharge from
their nose and their eyes, and they can get pretty bad serious things with their eyes,
corneal ulcers, and their eyes can get ruined, actually, if not treated. So it is a pretty
nasty little virus in the beginning, but then they grow into it and grow out of it so to
speak, but it hides in their nerves, and when they are older and they get stressed, like
a new cat in a household, or new people, or new baby in the household, or new cat wandering
around the outside, they can have outbreaks of sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, things
that have to do with upper respiratory system, and it will usually run its course. But one
of the things you cannot do for cats that seem to have this problem is, when they have
an outbreak, they do well if you give them L-lysine. An L-lysine is an amino acid that
you can buy at the store, and people take it for cold sores. And it is a very natural
product, it comes in 500 mg tablets. And you break it in half, it is crumbly, you can usually
crumble it into some cat food; and they will eat it, and it helps to chase away the herpes
virus a little bit, just like people with cold sores. So that is something we can help
cats with those sort of symptoms.
Termites are fascinating creatures. They build
complex, structurally sound hills metres high, despite having no real idea on an individual
level what the thing will look like, and not being able to follow complex orders. they operate by a system known as Stigmergy
– or environmental command. Essentially, the drone termite knows to pick up a clod of soil
and transport it to the construction site. If the first spot at the site is already filled,
they will move on to the next construction zone using a system of chemical trails left
by termites ahead to navigate. Eventually, a coherent structure will emerge. And that’s the principle being used by a team
from Harvard University’s Wyss (Veese) Institute for biologically inspired engineering. They’ve
designed a squad of small drone bricklaying robots, which operate based on similar principles
to build coherent structures with very little outside input or information. A design is
input into the controlling programme, but no more than that is specified. The drones
then set to, building the structure themselves with no outside control. The droids are simple,
easy to build and tough, allowing them to keep on working. They have just four sensors,
infrared, ultrasound, an accelerometer to help them climb and pressure sensitive push
buttons, which allow them to sense the location of bricks locate other droids, and navigate
their structures. The major advantage of systems like this is
that the drones can simply be left to run, making them extremely useful in situations
where human intervention is difficult, dangerous or overly menial – such as building structures
in space, or in disaster zones. Although I have to say, they might look amazing, but
there is something a little sinister about an army of robots being left to build stuff
on their own.
POLICE ARE PROMISING THEY WILL BE BACK. IN CLEARWATER, 8 ON YOUR SIDE. TONIGHT, TINY BUT MIGHTY TERMITES ARE CHEWING THEIR WAY THROUGH SOUTH FLORIDA.

IT IS ONE OF YOUR MOST IMPORTANT POSSESSIONS AND YOUR MOST IMPORTANT INVESTMENT AND THEY SAY IT’S NOT A MATTER OF IF THIS THING IS COMING BUT A MATTER OF WHEN.
The 48 Laws of Power … by Robert Greene
Law number ten… Infection: Avoid the unhappy and unlucky
You can die from someone else’s misery—emotional states are as infectious as diseases. You
may feel you are helping the drowning man but you are only precipitating your own disaster.
The unfortunate sometimes draw misfortune on themselves; they will also draw it on you.
Associate with the happy and fortunate instead. The infector possesses an inward instability
that radiates outward drawing disaster to all that they touch. Marie Gilbert A.K.A Lola
Montez of Ireland was one such person. Lola found herself in the role of a courtesan (prostitute
of the royal court). In today’s society Lola would be considered a gold-digger. She
only sought out men with high social standing in the community that she could use for her
own gain. Once she would have her hooks in these men,
their slow demise began. One of her victims was king Ludwig of Bavaria, who felt compelled
to help Lola yet once he was warned of the dangers of his affair with her, he could not
seem to resist Lola’s aura and almost found his once peaceful country in a state of civil
war. It was not until then that the king finally ordered Lola to leave but a month after she
left King Ludwig was forced to relinquish his throne.
There are many men who suffered because of their association with Lola Montez.
King Ludwig said that he was “bewitched” by Lola. Lola was an unstable, incurable and
infectious character type. This is not to say that these characteristics are only restricted
to women, this is to say that there are some people whose emotions are so powerful that
they infect the very soul of the people that they touch.
How to Recognize an Infector 1. They draw misfortune upon themselves.
2. They have a turbulent past. 3. They have a long line of broken relationships.
4. They have an unstable career. 5. They have a forceful character that sweeps
you up and makes you lose reason. 6. They have a desire to destroy and unsettle
and is chronically dissatisfied. 7. Look at the effect that they have on the
world around them. What to Do When You Meet an Infector
1. Don’t argue with them, this is part of how they trap you.
2. Don’t try to help them no matter what they say.
3. Don’t pass the person onto your friends or you will become enmeshed.
4. Flee the infector’s presence or suffer the consequences.
Learn To Fear the Power of Infection The risk of associating with infectors is
that you will waste valuable time and energy trying to free yourself. Through a kind of
guilt by association, you will also suffer in the eyes of others.
On the other side of the spectrum of infectors are those people who attract happiness through
their good cheer, natural buoyancy, and intelligence. They are a source of plea-sure, and you must
associate with them to share in the prosperity they draw upon themselves. All positive qualities
can infect us, but taking advantage of the emotional side of this osmosis may be difficult.
5 Ways to Affect Positive Change through Your Associations
1. If you are miserly by nature, associate with the generous and they will infect you,
opening up everything that is tight and restricted in you. Only generous souls attain greatness.
2. If you are gloomy, gravitate to the cheerful. 3. If you are prone to isolation, force yourself
to befriend the gregarious. 4. Never associate with those who share your
defects—they will reinforce everything that holds you back.
5. Only create associations with positive affinities.
Your rule for life… Recognize the fortunate so that you may choose
their company and the unfortunate so that you may avoid them. Misfortune is usually
the crime of folly, and among those who suffer from it there is no malady more contagious:
Never open your door to the least of misfortunes, for, if you do, many others will follow in
its train… Do not die of another’s misery. (Baltasar Gracian, 1601-1658)
