Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScary!Spider

Talk about a nightmare!

The Trost family bought a beautiful home in Missouri back in October 2007, but it turned out to be a total nightmare!

They found out quickly that the house was infested by 4,500 to 6,000 brown recluse spiders! And that was considered a conservative estimate because it was taken in the less active winter months.

Creepy!

It got so bad that spiders were coming out of the walls, and one even fell out of the ceiling onto

Man Dies When Emergency Responders Can't Get To Him After Crashing His Car Into Bee Infested Abandoned Home!

Filed under: Sad SadScary!InsectsDanger!Bugs

Man dies after crashing car into bee infested home! The swarm kept first responders at bay!

A man died in St. Charles, Michigan after crashing his car into an abandoned home.

The crazy part is… well, its unsure whether or not the crash killed him or what happened right after the crash.

The home he hit hadn't had human residents for a while, but it technically wasn't fully abandoned… it was infested with bees.

Spider Infestation Causes Air Traffic Controller Evacuation

Filed under: Scary!Attack!Spider

At Kansas City International Airport (KCI), radar controllers were actually forced to evacuate due to a spider infestation!!

An employee was bitten, the third employee in a few weeks, and it caused enough of a panic to force the evacuation of the building.

During the evac, as many as five flights were delayed up to 15 minutes.

Exterminators were called in, and they discovered a nest egg underneath the radar controllers' desks.

They believe the bites were from a mama spider who was protecting her babies. We can understand that instinct but that doesn't make it any less terrifying!!

Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about how some tiny spiders scared a whole building of people!

nyc rat problem post sandy(1)

One of the more disgusting consequences of Hurricane Sandy hitting New York is an increase in rats!

Gross!!

After the hurricane hit and all that flooding happened, tons of rats moved inland.

It's gotten so bad that NYC officials are calling for a publicly financed program to bait, kill and remove the rats.

Ask A Vet With Dr. Jennifer Scarlett On Fleas

Filed under: Q&AHealthDog

Dr. Jennifer Scarlett has done another 'Ask a Vet from the SF SPCA'.

Someone wrote in:

We do not treat our 5-year old Maltipoo for fleas - and he never seems to have a problem. Recently though, we visited another household where there were two other dogs, both treated with flea medication. After a day-long visit, our pooch had fleas all over him and the other dogs were still flea-less. Why did that happen? What can we do to make sure he doesn't get fleas on his next visit?

Dr. Jennifer Scarlett responded:

Gotcha! As compared to days gone by when it was common to use organophosphates on pets the products available now to prevent and control fleas are great.

Even the best products like Advantage, Frontline and Comfortis are not perfect—so they may kill 95 to 99% of the fleas, but they don’t stop flea eggs from hatching. Many of the old pyrethrin based products are much less effective. The problem might not stem from the dogs themselves, but from the environment. Flea eggs can hang around in the nooks and crannies of a house and continue to hatch, develop and feed on pets and people.

Most likely some of the fleas that were newly hatched from the eggs in the house had a feeding frenzy on your virginal pup! I recommend one of the newer effective flea medications—the new long lasting oral product is my favorite. You’ll need to see your vet to get it, but it is really reasonably priced. Oh, and if your dog brought fleas home, then the bad news is that there still there. You’ll need to use a product that has an insect growth regulator to kill the eggs they laid in your house to get rid of them. You can call our pharmacy – we carry a really good, non-toxic powder. Fleas are tough little buggers. Good luck.

So remember, don't poison your pet with the wrong flea medicine but do talk to your vet about safe ways to protect them from fleas.

It's easier to prevent fleas from happening than it is to remove a flea infestation from your home.

Gross.
