EVERYONE DESERVES SOME LOVE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY – EVEN BUGS
Arrow Exterminators Shares Their Top Five Most
Every Valentine's Day our romantic spirit is rekindled and we
are reminded to show our love and appreciation for those we hold
dear. This year, Arrow Exterminators wants to you save some
of that love for a few special insects that are cute, romantic and
even provide a few benefits!
"While our primary focus is protecting our customers from the
very real threats that pests pose to both health and property,"
said Shay Runion, Arrow Pest Expert, "it is also important to
remember that there are many beneficial insects that improve our
quality of life as well."
Ladybugs: A perennial favorite, Ladybugs again
top the list. Not only are they adorable and bring good luck,
they provide a sustainable solution to keeping real pests out of
Fireflies: Fireflies are the ultimate love bug,
using their soft glow like candlelight to attract new mates and
what could be more romantic than collecting them on a warm summer
night. They are usually found in humid climates, especially
near ponds, streams and marshes.
Dragonflies: This beautiful four-winged flyer
deserves a lot of love, especially if you don't like
mosquitoes! Unchanged since dinosaurs roamed the earth,
dragonflies usually take up residence in common mosquito breeding
areas and then they feed on them helping control the local
population. Mother Nature definitely got this one right!
Crickets: Crickets might be the most romantic
insect of all. Only the male crickets chirp and in their
quest to the perfect mate, they produce an orchestra of romantic
ballads to woo female crickets and repel other males.
Additionally, after a successful mating, they will chirp a song of
Honeybees: There are many reasons to love this
insect. They are social in nature and produce a yummy sweet
treat we all enjoy! Additionally, they pollinate beautiful
flowers, many that are given at Valentine's Day and also more than
100 different crops across the United States, including apples,
squash, soybeans and nuts.
