What is an inexpensive way to get rid of bed bugs.
I just got married and we don’t have a lot of money. Everything we read tells us to call a professional to get rid of bed bugs but we can’t afford it. I just wanted to know inexpensive but effective ways to get rid of them.
You have to call a professional I’m afraid. The sooner the better because they breed like crazy and the problem will just get worse and more expensive. If you are renting just move and make sure you wash everything, take apart furniture and clean every crook and cranny of it that you can possibly get into. One pregnant female in your stuff could bring back your problem.DDT was the answer and still is the answer, but thanks to some environmentalist named Rachel Carson who wrote a book called “Silent Spring” (and none of the things she wrote about were even factual btw) DDT was banned in 1972. Bedbugs were virtually wiped out by then thanks to DDT. They were actually very common back in the day it was a normal thing to have bedbugs…people just learned to live with them! (How they did that is beyond me!) Since DDT has been banned they have come back in hordes. They’re in hotel rooms, airplanes, hostels, everywhere, and it’s all hush hush.I know this because my mother used to run a hostel and it was diagnosed with bedbugs and no matter how many times it was sprayed with insecticides the problem still came back. If your job requires you to sleep in hotels I suggest using their bedding only and washing everything when you get home, clothes, the bag you carry them in etc. Even if you think it’s overkill it’s the only way to prevent them. Watch the news…they are everywhere.Anyways one of the best way you can contain the problem is with cardboard. Apparently Native Americans used to do this. Lots of bedbugs end up in your walls in the insulation and everything, so they would stick cardboard against the walls overnight. The bedbugs would crawl into the cardboard when they were done their bloodsucking for the night and the next morning the cardboard would be burned.Some other ideas which I got from the website below are to :1. Inspect your mattress and bed frame, particularly the folds, crevices and the underside, and other locations where bedbugs like to hide.2. Use a nozzle attachment on the vacuum to capture the bedbugs and their eggs. Vacuum all crevices on your mattress, bed frame, baseboards and any objects close to the bed. It’s essential to vacuum daily and empty the vacuum immediately.3. Wash all your linens and place them in a hot dryer for 20 minutes. Consider covering your pillows and mattress with a plastic cover.4. Remove all unnecessary clutter.5. Seal cracks and crevices between baseboards, on wood bed frames, floors and walls with caulking. Repair or remove peeling wallpaper, tighten loose light switch covers, and seal any openings where pipes, wires or other utilities come into your home (pay special attention to walls that are shared between apartments).6. Monitor daily by setting out glue boards or sticky tape (carpet tape works well) to catch the bedbugs. Closely examine any items that you’re bringing into your home.7. Consult professional pest control services and discuss options that pose the least risk to humans and the environment.The Health Department warns you could still see a few of the pests up to ten days after you take all the steps, but they call this normal. If you’re still seeing the insects after two weeks, your best bet is to call in a professional to ensure they’ve been completely eliminated.Where bedbugs can be found* Seams, creases, tufts and folds of mattresses and box springs* Cracks in the bed frame and head board* Under chairs, couches, beds, dust covers* Between the cushions of couches and chairs* Under area rugs and the edges of carpets* Between the folds of curtains* In drawers* Behind baseboards, and around window and door casings* Behind electrical plates and under loose wallpaper, paintings and posters* In cracks in plaster* In telephones, radios, and clocksBedbugs can also travel along pipes, electrical wiring and other openings and come in from other apartments or dwellings.Make sure you throw out your mattress and if you move…I really just wouldn’t risk taking the couches, throw them out!Hope this helps.

Quotes about reception of Silent spring.
Does anyone know of any quotes about how the public, government, and chemical companies responded to Silent Spring by Rachel Carson? I know there are many who disliked her ideas, especially the chemical companies, but I cant find any concrete quotes for my paper!Thanks!
Pro:One was nature writer Edwin Way Teale, who warned, “A spray as indiscriminate as DDT can upset the economy of nature as much as a revolution upsets social economy. Ninety percent of all insects are good, and if they are killed, things go out of kilter right away.”Con”If man were to faithfully follow the teachings of Miss Carson,” complained an executive of the American Cyanamid Company, “we would return to the Dark Ages, and the insects and diseases and vermin would once again inherit the earth.”Con:Edwin Diamond stated, “Thanks to a emotional, alarmist book called ‘Silent Spring,’ Americans mistakenly believe their world is being poisoned”Pro:LaMont Cole, professor of ecology at Cornell, wrote in the Scientific American: “Errors of fact (within ‘Silent Spring’) are so infrequent, trivial, and irrelevant to the main theme that it would be ungallant to dwell on them.”Con:She was labeled a “bird lover,” “cat lover,” “fish lover,” “nun of nature,” and “priestess of nature” (Graham, 1970).Con:She was accused of “worrying about the death of cats but not caring about the 10,000 people who die daily from malnutrition and starvation in the world” (Diamond, 1963).Pro:That she was a scientist as well as an author was acknowledged in the citation on the Audubon medal (Vosburgh, 1964):Distinguished scientist, gifted writer, Sensitive and perceptive interpreter of the ways of nature, Who authored a book called SILENT SPRING; Through it she alerted and aroused the public about needless and dangerous chemical pollution of our environment And sounded a timely warning that technology, run away from science, can be a threat to man.Con:The New York Times book review stated, “Silent Spring is so one-sided that it encourages argument, although little can be done to refute Miss Carson’s carefully documented statements”Con:Life magazine said, “there is no doubt that she has overstated her case” (Life, 1962),Con:Parodies of Silent Spring were written and released in an effect to counter or soften the message. One such parody was entitled “The Desolate Year” and described a bleak future without pesticides. Another called “Quiet Summer” depicted a boy and his grandfather eating acorns-as a result of lack of pesticides they had been forced to “live naturally” (Brooks, 1972). Fact kits were distributed to members of the medical profession (Brooks, 1970; Graham, 1970); one developed by the Nutrition Foundation contained copies of critical book reviews, a defense of chemical pesticides, and a letter from the president of the foundation indicating that the “book was distorted”Pro:Public attitudes and perceptions at that time are reflected in political cartoons that appeared in various newspapers and magazines, and Brooks’ biography of Carson (1972) has an excellent collection. One that appeared in the New Yorker in 1963 depicts a woman standing in front of a display of pesticides in a garden store saying to the salesperson, “Now, don’t sell me anything Rachel Carson wouldn’t buy” (Newsweek, 1963).Etc…
What did these people want to change and how did they do it.
If u kno one post it upi’m not looking for all of them at oncebut please help with as many as you canif u can tell me where i might be able to find the answeror if u straight up kno the answerdo tell=]]Following people i’d like to kno of:-Rachel Carson-Cesar Chavez-Betty…
Rachel Carson wanted pesticides banned because she thought they caused all kinds of illness. DDT was banned as a result of her book ‘Silent Spring’. The consequence of this is that malaria once again flourishes in countries where it was virtually extinct, hundreds of thousands of people must have died because of that woman. Possibly millions.Caesar Chavez founded the National Farm Workers Association, which sought to unionise migrant workers. He used strikes, pickedt and marches in the struggle to win contracts from growers an dhimself undertook long fasts to publicise the movement. In 1968 he promoted a nationwide boycott of California grapes, which led to the table-grape growers recognition of the union in 1970. In 1972 the United Farm Workers (UFW) with Chavez as its president, became a member union of the AFL-CIO.Betty Friedan wote a book called ‘The Feminine Mystique’ which said that being a housewife was a miserable and pointless existence, and that women who were at home were wasting their time and should all be in the office all day instead. So now that’s what married women do, and they’re all much happier, so I gather.Samuel Gompers was a founder and long-time president of the American Federation of Labor (AFL) and believed in non-political trade unionism.Jesse Jackson founded PUSH (People United to Save Humanity) in 1971, to promote the economic advancement of black people. He was a candidate for the Democratic 1984 presidential nomination, being tghe first black American to mount a serious campaign for the office. He came second to Michael dukakis in the Democrats 1988 presidential nomination, doubling his 1984 vote share.Martin Luther King was a great civil rights leader who wanted equality for black people. He was an immensely eloquent and charismatic speaker. He was tragically assasinated in 1968.Upton Sinclair was a novelist whose novel ‘The Jungle’ (1906)horrified the world with its exposure of meat-packing conditions in chicago. His later novels were more and more moulded by his socialist beliefs, and he attempted to found a communistic colony in Englewood, New Jersey.Elizabeth Cady Stanton was one of the founders of the Women’s rights movement in America. In 1848 , with her friend Lucretia Mott, she organised the first women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls. She teamed up with Susan b. Anthony in 1850, and together they founded the National Women’s Suffrage Movement in 1869, which they ran until the end of the century.Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote the powerful anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which was published in 1850. It was one of the most influential novels ever published, and had a profound effect on the attitude towards slavery of northerners.
Fictional Books About Environmental Issues.
I have to do a project about an environmental issue or an endangered species. My problem is that we have to read a real legit novel. It can be non-fiction, but I can’t really find any novels that are nonfiction that are long enough. I also want to do something interesting. My friend is reading “The Last…
‘I can’t really find any novels that are non-fiction that are long enough’There is no such thing as a novel that is non-fiction. If it’s non-fiction, it’s not a novel – a novel, by definition, has to be fiction. Also, how long is ‘long enough’? So I’m a bit confused about what it is you need to read.Assuming that it really is a novel you’re looking for and not non-fiction, I would suggest The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch, which is a novel about a young boy obsessed with marine conservation who finds a giant squid washed up on his favourite beach.If you’re able to choose a non-fiction book, try ‘Silent Spring’ by Rachel Carson. It was written in the 1960s and it’s a classic non-fiction book that, in many ways, really started the conservation movement as we know it. It’s very well-written. It’s all about the damage that pesticides can do to the environment. The title refers to the possibility of a spring where no birds sing, because they’ve all been killed off by pesticides.A brilliant (and very funny) book about endangered species is ‘Last Chance To See’ by Douglas Adams & Mark Carwardine. They travelled the word making a radio programme about all the most endangered species in the world. It’s fascinating, but it’s also really very readable and highly entertaining.
Malaria kills millions of people in 3rd world countries every year, our Govt hands out nets. Why won’t our.
Govt just spray for the mosquitoes with DDT (that’s how modern countries eliminate them) Wouldn’t it be cheaper to do this than giving out nets? What do you think the politics behind refusing to do this is?http://www.21stcenturysciencetech.com/articles/Fall02/DDT.htmlLittle bit of trivia, did you…
Obviously its the politics of eco-correctness. Rachel Carson was the envirinmentalist who wrote “Silent Spring”, a book about how DDT affected lots of things other than mosquitoes, and would kill off so many birds that we would have a “Silent Spring”. And it was arguable that we overused DDT, but perhaps banning it altogether was a major overreaction. After all, there was a reason we wanted to control the mosquito population.Sadly, DDT could save the lives of millions of people, especially children, in Africa. If it were happening in the U.S. and we knew that we could save our children this way, we wouldn’t hesitate. It’s the same thing with condoms (the pope had a valid point. If you lived in a country with a 20% infection rate for H.I.V., would you teach your children to abstain from the threat of H.I.V. or just hand them an unlimited supply of condoms? (There’s a one in five chance their partner will be H.I.V. positive in a country with a 20% infection rate, and condoms are 90% effective in preventing AIDS. Those odds may be more steep than say, playing Russian Roulette, but they’re still totally unacceptable.) The value of abstinence goes beyond preventing H.I.V. transmission anyway, it is in line with teaching children self-discipline and personal responsibility.It takes real compassion and a “people first” approach to solve many of the most pressing issues in Africa, instead of acting like an enormous bureaucracy trying to manage the enormous problems of an enormous continent.
What well known person do you admire and why.
Rachel Carson, since died, who proved with scientific research the inevitable poisoning of flora, fauna, the air and water by indiscriminate use of pesticides, and how the effects spread naturally. Her book Silent Spring caused uproar around the world, but she persisted. She was given tribute by Congress, wrote many more books, and researched until she died, forewarning of the largely quiet march toward what is now global warming.
Rachel Carson and her impact on history.
I need help finding sources about Rachel Carson and the impact she made on history. Information such as what she was going through the time she wrote her then famous book Silent Spring, what events happened because of her book, and how we live now because she wrote Silent Spring.I very much appreciate your help,ZZK
Rachel Carson brought back to modern consciousness the interconnectedness of human beings and the natural environment.”Her book, Silent Spring, published in 1962, awakened society to its responsibility to other forms of life. Carson had long been aware of the dangers of chemical pesticides and also the controversy within the agricultural community. She had long hoped someone else would publish an expose’ on DDT but eventually realized that only she had the background as well as the economic freedom to do it.”Silent Spring provoked a firestorm of controversy as well as attacks on Carson’s professional integrity. The pesticide industry mounted a massive campaign to discredit Carson even though she did not urge the complete banning of pesticides but called for research to ensure pesticides were used safely and to find alternatives to dangerous chemicals such as DDT.”The federal government, however, ordered a complete review of pesticide policy and Carson was asked to testify before a Congressional committee. As a direct result of that review, DDT was banned. With the publication of Silent Spring, Carson is credited with launching the contemporary environmental movement and awakening concern by Americans about the environment.” [U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service]The Environmental Protection Agency was established in 1970, in large part because of the concerns and the consciousness that Rachel Carson raised in her book, Silent Spring.The sources below will give you further information, as well as links to additional primary sources. Good luck.
Why does Rachel Carson begin with “there was once a town…” as though she were writing a fairy tale.
Silent Spring by Rachel CarsonAdditional Question:1. Is this a fairy tale of sorts?2. How does Carson present the town in paragraphs 1 and 2?
Most definitely not a fairy tale, Silent Spring was the foundation of modern environmentalism. That opening chapter was called “A Fable for Tomorrow” and what Carson was doing in those early paragraphs was describing not one place but a combined memory – somewhat idealized – of the way things were in small-town America before the beginnings of ecologically disruptive mass-scale agriculture. Because it is not one particular place but a realistic amalgamation of many places, she calls it a fable, which means a tale composed to teach a lesson. And, of course, that is what the book did. The language is chosen , as you recognize, is chosen to be like that most common way of opening fairy tales “once upon a time”.
