How to eat grasshoppers

Eat that bug protein.

Eating Grasshoppers and still smiling.

So just having a little fun here, but I decided to test some popular lines and slogans adding a pest control twist…

Out of the Strong came forth pest control.

Bug Tested, Mother Approved.

Have pest control your way.

Good to the last bug.

Is it Live or is it pest control?

Taste Great, Less Bugs.

The lighter way to enjoy pest control.

Why have cotton when you can have pest control?

Obey your exterminator.

Let your bugs do the walking.

The pest control that smiles back.

The future’s bright. The future’s pest control.

I am a defensive wall.  – (Bulwark)

Don’t bumble with the B.

Licensed to kill. Literally.

I kill things for a living.

Buenas Noches Roaches.

Hey… It’s FRIDAY! Hope you have a rocking weekend.

Awhile back I participated in the Phoenix Warrior Dash, well that was tough enough for me. But a couple of my co-workers here at Bulwark Exterminating decided to do the Tough Mudder. Here is their video clip… produced by the Bulwark Exterminating Marketing Department.

Yes that was a Back Flip into that muddy water… Yes there were 1000 watts running through those wires, which caused Derrick to fall forward after loosing muscle control. Certainly not an event for the weak. Crawling through water filled tunnels. Swimming through ice cold water, chilled to the bone by dry ice. But apparently not too much for the Phoenix Scorpion Control team that kills the most deadly US scorpions you can find on a regular bases. Kicking butt and taking names.

Bulwark Exterminating… Hiring guys who aren’t your average pest control guy. You may call it over the top… I call Bulwark Extreme.

Thanks Team Bulwark for the awesome event and awesome footage.

Story from BlogPestControl.com

“…But do you recall? The most famous reindeer of all…Shooter The Good Deed Reindeer!”

Err!

OK, so he may not be the most famous, but he certainly is the most thoughtful and service oriented toward rodent-kind.

Shooter the Good Deer Reindeer

Shooter, resident of the Pocatello Zoo in Idaho, was seen by zoo staff awkwardly handling his water trough. The large animal, which at times can be a bit overbearing for many of the staffers, eventually was able to dip his head and gently retrieve a rat from his barrel. Shooter then laid the distressed rodent on the floor and proceeded to nudge him with his hoof until he had the strength to scurry away into the bushes on his own power.

Matt Cutts Panda & Google Shoes

Now I didn’t actually bother to click on the tinyurl.com link as I don’t want to encourage this spammer to send more spam. And I am pretty sure that writing crap content about a non related subjects isn’t going to do me much for ranking these days. And the sheer fact that you are using email spam tells me that I don’t want your type of SEO, Mr. Article Star. What I can deduce from your email is that you are most likely an article spam farm. Which tells me that you are being hunted by the Kung Fu Panda.

And I am here to do whatever I can do to help eliminate pest like you.

The Pest Control Guy.

ASU based in Phoenix AZ awards this Cockroach the top 10 new species award. The Leaproach is the only known roach that can actually jump. Watch the slow motion video of this newly discovered species:

Wheweeee… now that is some good hopping.

What is curious is that the guy that discovered them claims: “The jumping motion likely didn’t evolve to avoid predators, although that may be a benefit. More likely, says Picker, it helps leaproaches spread out to find mates and track down their favorite food: Protein-packed grasshopper poop”

Hmmm… how does he know that it’s not a defensive evolution? And how can he be certain that they didn’t just pick up some super grasshopper poop laced with toxic grasshopper gene’s along the way? Perhaps the real story hear is that we now have evidence that Spider-man could actually have a plausible story line. Well that is, if Spider-man ate spider poop. “You are what you eat.”… “You eat poop for breakfast?”

Someone please call in the Phoenix Roach Control guys before I hurt myself!

One week into Movember.. less than cool stare.

Well the Movember Mustache is about to come to an end.

What I gave for Movember:

I gave my face. While this may not seem costly to most, I felt very out of place for the past month. I have never grown a beard before. And this is the first mustache I have ever worn. Needless to say, I was more than a little self conscious because of this. I consider this a costly investment.

I gave my voice. Speaking up about why I was not shaving proved much easier. Curious looks and my own discomfort made it easy to speak up and explain why I wore a beard/mustache. Most people had never heard of “No Shave November.” or “Movember”. Speaking up was easy. It was refreshing to share my voice and tell people that simple awareness to issues like prostate cancer can help.

I gave my wallet. Not only did I ask for others to donate, but I gave money myself. Every little bit helps. There is little time left to donate: http://mobro.co/pestcontrol

What I learned this Movember:

How I looked most of the month.

Facial hair is itchy! Having never grown out my facial hair, I had never experienced the itchiness. And after the itch came the tingle. Yes, I could feel the hairs tickle and tingle my skin with a simple smile to a cool breeze. And having discussions with other men about these new found sensations, I also learned that it itches every time you grow it back out.

Prostate cancer will hit 1 out 6 men. ( cancer stats ) Prostate Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in American men. 1 out of 36 men will die of prostate cancer.

There are a lot of good people in the world. It was inspiring to be part of the Manta Team which raised about $3000. I was especially impressed with Mike Halvorsen who got Matt Cutts and Duane Forrester on board. Their team “Search for the Cure” raised over $14,000. That is inspiring. Good work men.

My SEOstache

Well I wore a beard for most of the month, but I didn’t want to miss out entirely on the mustache experience, so I busted out the straight mustache for the last few days of the month… wearing it as I type this right now.

Yes… I have a hard time taking myself serious seeing my own mustache. I got a few good laughs, a couple of “I can’t take you serious.” comments, a “Is that real?” comment, and “you would be so cool in the 70’s”. My wife even said that I should have done this in October so that I could’ve used it in my Halloween costume. Although the nickname “Mario”, from Mario Brothers, seems to stick the most.

Movember Mustaches at Internet Summit in Raleigh

It was also cool to run into some great MoBro’s in Raleigh during the Internet Summit. It’s an instant connection. A brotherhood. Good people doing a good thing.

Monica Wright showing off Google+ #movember mustache

I even had the chance to show off my SEOstache in a Google+ hangout with Search Engine Land‘s Danny Sullivan and Monica Wright. Very cool that Google+ had an option to add your own #movember mustache. It actually moved around with your face while you were on screen. Captured this screen shot from my iPhone as the meeting was coming to a close.

… So long dear #SEOstache.

I was just emailed this photo… found it funny. Would love to see my neighbors do this. The guy down the street from me has 180 channels for Christmas lights on his home. He sets the lights by channels to music with a computer program that uses an equalizer, fade-in, fade-out, note recognition, instrument recognition… He has another program that helps him designate zones on the home so that he can construct his light show by zones. He tells me that Channel 4 news is going to be down to video tape his home this Friday night. I decided to help out and lend him a couple of power cords. Apparently the power cords are a bit of an expense. So if you see a home in Queen Creek AZ on the news… you know the pest control guy helped.

On a side note, this will be the first time ever that my home has Christmas lights up the day after Thanksgiving.

Hope the Turkey was good to you this year.

And yes… there are others blogging about Christmas lights as well.

22 Months for 3:25 minutes of video? That certainly is dedication. It also took 30 people to create and 288,000 Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. The feat is nothing short of amazing. But was it worth it? How much money was spent? Simply attaching a dollar amount to a project does not mean its worth what was spent. When I think of artistic master pieces that took years to create I think of the Sistine Chapel, the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore.

But this was still pretty cool.

The benefits are things like social mentions, links, and most of all fame. Is that lasting fame? Only time will tell.

We all know that spiders are scary even when it’s not Halloween. So what do the 5 Scariest Spiders dress up like for Halloween to give you a real freight? Well we took a peek at this year’s festive costumes of the Black Widow Spider, the Brown Recluse Spider, the Tarantula, the Camel Spider, and the Desert Hairy Scorpion. But who wore it best? Which spider/arachnid is taking home the scariest spider prize? Who needs spider control?

Check it out and vote below:

Scariest Spiders

Black Widow cast herself as Lidsay Lohan (a repeat offender… referring to last year’s Halloween Treat) Sorry Scarlet Johansson but you won’t be playing the Black Widow tonight, but the shy Brown Recluse Spider may have found your cell phone. Sir Herman Cain gets props on his Godfather’s Pizza from the Tarantula. The military boys had enough influence on the Camel Spider that Ron Paul gets the Camel Spider vote. And well, the Desert Hairy Scorpion is feared enough so digging out a scary costume meant going for the gold in fear force names, Chuck Norris.
