3 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Cockroaches

This may be had to digest, but the fact remains that cockroaches are among the dangerous animals we have notwithstanding the fact that there is an outcry to look into cockroach milk as the next superfood. They belong to the group of the most dynamic and resistant species of living organisms.  Roaches somehow, are spread over 4,000 species and are known to have been existing before the Jurassic era, about 280 million years ago. Such an ancient organism! They can cover a speed of three miles per hour. You can then imagine the rate at which they could be spreading their buddy germs to humans. Although there are a lot of cockroach foggers, powders, and gel baits available, in this article we’ll discuss how you can use simple home remedies to reduce cockroach infestation. This will come in handy if you belong to the group of people who will not want to use pesticides or any type of spray altogether.  Cockroaches have no difficulty in holding their breath for up to 40 minutes.

Amazon Fires: A Big Setback in The Fight Against Climate Change

The Amazon fires in the Amazon Rain Forest, hundreds and possibly thousands of kilometers away. It’s possible you are in Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania or even in America far away from Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, etc that border the Amazon fires. Your mindset maybe it’s none of my business, It doesn’t bother me and I’m not affected. If that’s how you feel about the fires, you are in for a very terrible shock. For quite a number of years now, the talks have been global warming, greenhouse gases, emission of CO2, melting of icebergs, and climate change. Governments, agencies, world bodies, corporate organizations, and individuals have all been seeking out for ways to combat all these phenomena. Human, financial, and technological resources have been sunk into means and ways of averting the very dangerous outcomes and effects of these phenomena. And when we think we may be making some headway, out of the blues pops out the Amazon fires. Why should you take the Amazon fires seriously? The Amazon rainforest is by any standard, the world’s largest rainforest, spanning eight countries and covers 40% of South America.

Area 51: A Proof That The World is in Danger

The internet has always succeeded in keeping us abreast of latest happenings around the world and that was the case of a Facebook event entitled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” that went viral. Even Twitter and Reddit went agog with the trend.  The Facebook event proposes that people should come out on September 20th to stage a joint invasion of the military base and finally “see them, aliens.” This to an extent may sound funny and a sort of joke but the way Americans have reacted shows that there is more than meets the eye about Area 51. The apt question at this point is, what is Area 51? As much as you may wish it to be a fairy tale, the interesting thing is that Area 51 actually exists and not just recently. For decades, the U.S. has been running a military installation that is located approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Las Vegas.  People knew but nobody dared approach the site. It actually had been one of the worst-kept secrets on the planet.  Area 51, as it’s commonly known to UFO conspiracy theorists and aviation buffs who have been able to piece together…

Malaria:The Ultimate Guide To Its Eradication And Extinction

 Malaria cannot be confined by boundaries, having been found to affect people in all the continents of the world. Without much saying, it is very glaring that malaria as a disease has been a scourge to mankind. It is on records that the first officially known treatment of malaria came by the way of using quinine extracted from the bark of the “Cinchona” tree also known as the “Jesuits bark” in Viceregal Palace in Lima, Peru, in 1938. Quinine went on to become the only compelling treatment for malaria until the 1920’s. Scientists went into the laboratories all over the world trying to find a way of synthetically producing this “wonder” drug and in 1944, they were able to discover the structure of the alkaloid molecule C20H24N2O2. Variants of quinine have been produced since then, with some having serious side effects to the extent that their usages have been discouraged but the astounding thing is that the ravages of this disease have by no means abated to an appreciable degree. The World Health Organization (WHO), reported that nearly half of the world’s population is at a risk of malaria and that in 2015, there were roughly 212 million malaria cases…
