How Both Coronavirus and Bed Bugs Can Be Prevented

coronavirus prevention tips

The more we learn in the news about the Coronavirus, or Covid 19, the more we start to see how prevention against this unfolding epidemic closely matches the strategy against yes, bed bugs.

While at first you might not think the 2 are remotely related, once you delve into the personal hygiene, living and traveling habits that reduce the risk of either to the maximum extent, you’ll understand how preventing coronavirus and learning how to eliminate bed bugs are quite similar.

Preventing Bed Bugs & Coronavirus

First of all, reducing your risk of Coronavirus means maintaining cleanliness at home, work, and while traveling. This is because the virus itself can survive from days to months on an inanimate, non-hostile surface.

Practicing good hygiene, keeping your home clean and disinfected as well as orderly, will also reduce the likelihood of bed bugs going undetected in a neglected, messy area. Reducing clutter, vacuuming everywhere including your bed frame and box spring, and mopping/disinfecting can decrease the occurrence of bed bugs and their eggs.

bed bug travel tips

While anyone can get bedbugs, they seem to love an abundance of hiding spaces that have not seen the light of day in a long while.

Work and Travel Safety Tips for Coronavirus and Bedbugs

The key to eliminating risk is to apply the same approach at home to anywhere you visit or travel as well, and to reduce travel to known affected areas if you have the choice. Clearly some areas are more affected than others, and it’s important to monitor the news and online reviews for insights when planning your schedule.

It is probably more important that you are aware of your surroundings when outside the home. First, always wash your hands with warm water for 20 seconds, and make sure that you don’t touch your face throughout the day, as this is an easy way to allow viruses and bacteria into your system.

With bed bugs, you have to be just as vigilant, but in a different way. Always examine a sofa, couch, or covered chair when you’re out in town or traveling abroad. Many people get bed bugs sitting down in public spaces, as bed bugs can hide in the cracks and find a new human to hitchhike on with ease.

Spreading the Coronavirus on an airplane due to the re-circulated air in the passenger cabin has been a culprit in the virus’s expansion, and bed bugs have strangely enough showed up in the news as biting people on planes too.

The Final Word on Coronavirus (Covid 19) and Bed Bugs

At this point, it does not seem either the Coronavirus or bed bugs are going away any time soon. The Coronavirus can lie dormant in a human carrier for 27 days without displaying any symptoms.

In addition, some doctors say there is the possibility of being re-infected a 2nd time with the virus, this time even worse, after the tests show negative and recovery stage from the initial infection have begun.

Since many believe Covid 19 is actually a biological weapon that was leaked from a weapons lab in Wuhan, it’s as if it has been designed to be the worst of many viruses.

As far as bed bugs go, governments around the world making DDT illegal back in the 1970’s eliminated one of the most effective pesticides and bed bug killers available- due to the potential negative side effects for the health of humans and animals.

Finally, if you have bed bugs or just want to prevent them with higher probability of success, visit to learn more about a safe, effective, and affordable bed bug killer that stays good forever, as long as you keep it dry.

Plan accordingly and stay safe! Good luck

How to Get Your Dog to Stop Barking!

Stop Your Dog from Barking!

First things first. It’s time to teach your dog to bark on command. It makes sense that once you install an “on” button, then you’ll finally get to learn how to press the “off” button to your dog’s barking.

Start by doing something that normally makes your dog want to bark, like having someone knock on the door while at the same time giving the command “speak”. Then give your dog a treat and let him sniff it, and then eat it. Repeat the process until your dog can reliably bark on command.

how to stop your dog from barking excessivelyThen move on to teaching your dog that being quiet is good too. Hold a treat in front of your dog’s nose until it stops barking since most of the time dogs must stop barking to sniff and then eat a treat, and praise and encourage your dog as it becomes quiet. If it barks again then make sure to reprimand it gently by letting it know to shhh before giving it the treat.

This is why it’s so important to teach your dog to learn by using treats, verbal praise and petting, as well as light reprimanding until it catches on. With time and positive reinforcement, your dog will improve.

Why Your Dog is Barking So Much

There could be a variety of reasons why your dog is barking so much. It’s good to understand those first to see why this behavior is not only normal, but actually healthy. Still, if you’re going to live under the same roof, you don’t want the dog barking non stop.

train your dog to quit barkingDogs bark for many reasons, like if they detect a potential home invader, or if they see another dog and feel their territory is threatened, and even when they’re excited and happy to see you. But an often overlooked aspect of excessive dog barking is that your dog may be barking due to a lack of exercise and stimulation, therefore they are barking due to frustration.

Install a Dog Door in Your Home


The way to improve your dog’s physical and mental health is to have some major, regular playtime with your dog to include games like fetch, sprinting and playing tag with your dog, and tug of war. In addition to this, you don’t always have to be there for your dog to be able to play. Strongly consider installing a dog door in your home to allow free movement and greater independence for your dog while you’re not at home.

Read about one of the top pet doors on the market in this dog door review.

Another great way to keep your dog active and happy is to hire a dog walker to visit and play with your dog for 3 minutes to an hour 3 times a week, or see if there’s another dog owner in your neighborhood that maybe your dog can be friends with and have some dog playtime too.

Ultimately if you can learn to have total, direct communication with your dog, you’ll find that your dog will listen to you during times it is barking excessively. This could mean you getting down on one knee and getting close to your dog, whispering encouraging things into its ear and giving it a hug to get it focused on and trusting you during a time when it wants to bark, making eye contact, and anything else that you know works for your dog.

Train Your Dog to Quit Barking All the Time

Finally, always rely on training when it comes to stopping your dog from barking. Never consider getting a surgical procedure that removes or lessens your dog’s vocal cords to stop it from barking, because while some vets will perform the procedure, it is actually far from ethical or humane.

For me, whenever my dog would start barking a lot at someone or something that I thought was inappropriate, I would simply just say “Get over here” or “shut up” very quickly, not mean, but just decisively as a matter of procedure, and my dog never seemed to mind it that way.

Finally, remember that exercise releases happy hormones and natural bodily chemicals that sedate and calm your dog. Your dog just wants to be happy and reach self-actualization the way any dog could, so keep in mind that a playful dog is a happy dog.

how do you know if you have bed bug bitesThe truth is, it’s really no one’s fault that bedbugs have made surprise visits inside of unsuspecting people’s homes, and not even bearing gifts. Those bastards.

Due to world governments outlawing the use of DDT in the early 70’s, pesticide regulators have effectively eliminated not bed bugs, but the one solution that was quite effective at killing bed bugs, or cimex lectularius, as the science community lovingly refers to them.

El Video de los Ronquidos que Tiene el Internet Volviéndose Loco

¿Crees que los ronquidos pesados ​​son divertidos? Entonces te va a encantar este video que ha sido visto por más de 2 millones de personas en la web mundial.

Una mujer con la ayuda de su sobrino filmó a su esposo roncando y luego hizo una canción con la melodía del famoso Despacito.

Despacito con Ronquidos


Roncar puede parecer gracioso, pero en realidad puede ser bastante peligroso a medida que envejece, y es a menudo un signo de una condición médica conocida como apnea del sueño. La apnea del sueño se atribuye a la muerte indirecta de medio millón de estadounidenses cada año.

¡Entendamos un poco mejor el ronquido y la apnea del sueño para que tu próximo “Despacito” no sea el último!

Porque ronca, ¿significa que tienes apnea del sueño?

Cerca de 90 millones de estadounidenses roncan, y aproximadamente la mitad o más de esas personas pueden tener OSA o apnea obstructiva del sueño, el tipo más común de apnea del sueño. La otra forma de apnea del sueño es CSA, o apnea central del sueño, que tiene más que ver con que el sistema nervioso central tenga una incapacidad para controlar el impulso involuntario que los humanos deben respirar sin pensar conscientemente en ello.

Aun la policia ronca a vecesSolo porque ronca no significa que tengas apnea del sueño. Se sabe que las personas con apnea del sueño roncan y se despiertan durante toda la noche, mientras que los roncadores regulares pueden pasar toda la noche sin despertarse. Los enfermos de apnea del sueño también se sabe que duermen mucho durante todo el día, y duermen con la boca abierta. Además, los pacientes con apnea del sueño pueden roncar más fuerte que la persona típica que ronca.

Factores de riesgo para los ronquidos y la apnea del sueño dentro de su control.


Los factores de riesgo para la apnea del sueño que usted puede controlar para reducir los ronquidos y la apnea del sueño son la dieta, el ejercicio, los medicamentos, el consumo de alcohol y cigarrillos y la posición en la que duerme por la noche.

Otros factores de riesgo para la apnea del sueño que pueden o no estar bajo su control directo son: su genética, su edad y género (a medida que los hombres envejecen tienen un mayor riesgo), así como sus senos paranasales y su capacidad para respirar por la nariz.

Independientemente de la categoría a la que pertenezca, solo recuerde que las personas que roncan y tienen apnea del sueño a menudo tienen un 40% más de probabilidades de muerte prematura que sus compañeros. Por lo tanto, le corresponderá buscar de forma proactiva una solución para cualquiera de los problemas. Además, cualquier persona con sentido común puede ver que el ronquido es una especie de puerta de entrada a la apnea del sueño, aunque no es una garantía para la enfermedad.

Pero dado que los ronquidos y la apnea del sueño ocurren con mayor frecuencia debido a algún tipo de bloqueo en las vías respiratorias, se puede ver cómo ambos se relacionan en la discusión. Solo recuerde que alrededor de 38,000 personas mueren anualmente por apnea del sueño relacionada con enfermedades del corazón. Está poniendo un gran estrés en su salud y sus órganos vitales.

Una cosa es segura: el oxígeno es esencial.

Si está seguro de su problema con el ronquido, pero no está seguro de si tiene apnea del sueño o no, puede comenzar probando algunos remedios de nivel inferior y al mismo tiempo buscar atención médica certificada por expertos y un estudio del sueño para determinar si tiene obstrucción o incluso Apnea central del sueño.

dejar de roncar boquillas mejoresAlgunas soluciones de bajo nivel para los ronquidos que no son demasiado caras para probar incluyen dejar de roncar boquillas, dilatadores nasales, mirar honestamente su peso actual, ejercicio y régimen de dieta, y probar una posición para dormir diferente o incluso dejar de fumar.

Una vez que inicie CPAP, ¿es para siempre?

Esta es una pregunta importante que hay que responder, y por eso recomiendo a las personas que comiencen poco y eliminen todos los factores de riesgo de broncar dentro de su propio control antes de pasar al equipo de trabajo pesado que podría requerir un compromiso de por vida.

Sin embargo, para responder a la pregunta, una vez que inicie CPAP, solo obtendrá los beneficios del dispositivo con el uso continuo. Entonces, en otras palabras, una vez que comience, sí, debe seguir usándolo. Si bien algunas personas notan los beneficios residuales de la CPAP, incluso en los días en que omiten el uso de la máquina, estos beneficios generalmente desaparecen después de unos días, ya que la garganta vuelve a su posición normal fuera de otros cambios corporales o estructurales mayores.

Y con esta tendencia viene una jungla digital que tendrá que machetar a su manera con la esperanza de recopilar información útil (y con suerte verdadera) a medida que compila su propia comprensión de lo que está sucediendo en el mundo y con su propia salud.

Si bien la mayoría de las personas probablemente entienden esto, que depende de ellos decidir si lo que están leyendo / viendo / escuchando es correcto y tiene sentido, por supuesto, hay excepciones que esperan que cualquier persona que filma un video de YouTube sea certificada.

What Gets Rid of Bed Bugs and How Much Does Treatment Cost?

what gets rid of bedbugsBed bugs have made a 21st Century comeback like no other.

The State of Illinois is reporting that once-though extinct bed bugs are now permeating hotels, dorm rooms, military barracks, apartments and houses alike.

Illinois residents with bed bugs treatment cost around $250 to $1000 for treatments, and may need 3 treatments before they can reasonably expect to get rid of bed bugs.

What Gets Rid of Bed Bugs

Should you be faced with the unfortunate position of having to kill bed bugs, you might automatically think a bed bug exterminator is the best option. But this is rarely, if ever the case. It is a common consumer reflex to delegate the authority of their problem to an established company in hopes that their experience, though expensive, is enough to help you if you don’t already know how to kill bed bugs.

The Government is Failing to Protect Consumers from Bed Bugs

I’ve been working to help people find the best bed bug killer for 3 years now. Finding a safe, effective and natural treatment for bed bugs that does not break your bank is easier than you think, but the government is not helping, and here’s why.

Many companies that sell a bed bug spray or product that eliminates bed bugs are around 100 years old, and so is their marketing. It would blow people’s minds to realize just how easy it is to get your hands on a great bed bug killer product, but the companies that make this all-natural solution do marketing from 50 years ago. They think it’s enough that their products exist in Ace Hardware, even though most people don’t know how to find an Ace Hardware if you’re lucky enough for one to even be in your city.

Which is exactly why websites like exists that shows people what gets rid of bed bugs and offers to send it to you as a gift from LLC. The product they send is EPA registered, made in the USA, and has a 1-year guarantee.

A person can reasonably expect to spend less than $100 on average to completely get rid of bed bugs using the Defensive End! system.

Bed Bugs are extremely hard to get rid of with just a bed bug spray

This is because contact bed bug killers do not eliminate the eggs. So the bed bugs have eggs in a hidden place, and 21 days later, more bed bugs are bound to be in your bedroom again.

The best thing about the Defensive-End! system is that a person could leave the product in place indefinitely, essentially forever between the box spring and the mattress for 24-7 365 protection and bed bug prevention.

So why doesn’t the EPA open up the bed bug game to newcomers?

The government is lazy and happy with their status quo and current level of tax collection, failing to recognize the online buying trends of consumers and the green-friendliest of available solutions. They charge around $100,000 simply to get a license to sell your own pesticide product, even if it’s safe enough to eat and is already classified as GRAS (generally regarded as safe).

The government and old existing monopolies, many of which get their product from a single mine in California heavily guarded by lawyers and government bureaucrats, are preventing consumer access to something that could save consumers millions, if not billions of dollars, a year that get wasted on dangerous chemical bed bug treatments from exterminators.

The Truth is Out There

How to Perform HIIT Training

When performing HIIT training, you can either make sprints until your muscles reach a failure like a feeling followed with low activity for about 1-2 minutes, or you can make a slightly less intense but hard sprint followed by 1-2 minutes of low-intensity activity. When taking the first option, perform 6-10 sets of intervals. When taking the second option, do about 5-8 sets of intervals.

At the end of the workout, you will have gained the following tremendous benefits:

Before eating the prepared portion, touch a small part of it to the outer surface of the mouth to test for a burning or itching sensation.

If there is no reaction after 3 minutes, place the piece on the tongue and hold it there for 15 minutes. If no problems are noticed, chew the piece and again hold it for 15 minutes without swallowing. If no ill-effects are noticed, the piece may be swallowed. After 8 hours with no ill-effects making themselves felt, another small portion of the same plant may be eaten.


If an individual finds themselves lost outdoors during the warm months, they will likely be exposed to loads of possibly dangerous and disease carrying mosquitoes. Knowing how to safely repel these pests when no bug spray is available is a key consideration. Some easy ways to do this include:


– eat or rub garlic on the skin.
