Christmas Tree

There Could Be Thousands of Bugs On Your Fresh Christmas Tree!!

 

When someone says they have the Christmas Bug, Hopefully this is not what they mean!

Here’s how to avoid getting thousands of creepy crawlies in your home!MORE

There could be hundreds or thousands of those bugs on your real tree.
According to Laura Jesse, an Entomologist at Iowa State University.

Some of those might include aphids, bark beetles, mites, praying mantises and spiders according to Jesse.

You probably won’t realize they’re there until after you decorate your tree.
That’s because the eggs that were likely laid on your tree this summer or fall are dormant (or asleep) in the winter. And when the tree sits in your nice, cozy warm home, they think it is spring and hatch.

Here are five prevention steps:

  • “Examine the underside of branches and the trunk.” If you see any branches with eggs, cut them off.
  • “Leave the Christmas tree in your garage for a few days.” This will allow the eggs to warm up and hatch in the garage — and not where you live.
  • “Shake the tree vigorously” over a white sheet to get out any bugs.
  • Use a vacuum to suck up any bugs or eggs on and around your Christmas tree.
  • Use an insecticidal powder while your tree is outside, but don’t use an aerosol pesticide, as those are “usually flammable.”

The best precaution is a non-toxic, natural pesticide called Diatomaceous Earth.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanksgiving Pet Safety

Our Pets may not enjoy Thanksgiving as much as the rest of us. Here are some safeguards to keep in mind. MORE

FOODS

Fatty foods are hard for animals to digest, and many foods that are healthy for people are poisonous to pets – including onions, raisins and grapes.

Yeast dough can cause problems for pets, including painful gas and potentially dangerous bloating.

GARBAGE!

Put the trash away where your pets can’t find it.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PARTIES

Visitors can upset your pets. New people and new noises can stress them out.

Watch the exits. Even if your pets are comfortable around guests, make sure you watch them closely…they might just follow someone sown the street.

 

For a more complete list of ideas and precautions, CLICK HERE.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Used and Unusable Donations For Camp Fire Victims Take Up Space and Volunteers Time

It’s in our nature to help. But what happens when our “Help” is more of a “Hindrance”?MORE

The wildfires in Butte County are truly devastating in every sense of the word. And it pains our hearts to watch the images coming from City of Paradise on the big screen and the small screen in our hands. In turn, we instinctively want to use our hands to help our fellow neighbors.

However, Space is at a premium at the evacuation centers and it’s need for the influx of displaced people, pets and livestock. When well-intentioned items are donated they pile up and can cause a problem.

We have buildings full of stuff,” said Kathy Ingvoldsen, business associate at the Butte County Fairgrounds. “In four hours we filled up a 5,000-square-foot building full of clothes. They’re stacked up on tables five feet high.”

Unfortunately, evacuees, particularly the victims who have lost their homes, don’t have anywhere to put the avalanche of donated items.

“Our community is amazing!” Says Ingvoldsen.

But donations need to be tailored for the needs of the evacuees.

Meghan O’Hara with the American Red Cross recalls receiving a box of donated Frisbees as she oversaw relief efforts in earthquake-shattered Haiti in 2010, NPR reported.

“Wow. That $60 or $70 could have been sent to so many different organizations to help out in so many different ways, and now we have a box of Frisbees,” O’Hara said, according to the station. 

Money and Gift cards and the best way to help.

This year the Kat Country 103 Christmas Show will send 100% of Proceeds to benefit The Camp Fire Victims Fund.

The concert is December 1st , 7p-9p at The Udder Place in Turlock. Starring, Walker Hayes (You Broke Up With Me.) Brandon Lay (YaDa YaDa YaDa.) Claire Dunn ( Tuxedo, More.) Doors open at 6:15pm. This is a 21 and Up show only.

There are a limited number of tickets, Click here to get yours now!!
