Ants, rats, bees, hornets, termites and other fun stuff around the house

Lucy O’Neill over at the Improvement Center (a nifty website about home improvement projects) has a cool infographic about the most common kinds of pests around a home — what kind of damage they do, how to get rid of them, and some fun facts, too.
Speaking of which, my two favorites:
1. Some varieties of carpenter ant defend themselves by exploding and spraying their attacker with venom.
2. A cockroach can live for weeks without its head. (Insert politician joke here.)
Anyway, it’s worth either checking out, or passing along to someone else so they can get the heebie-jeebies instead.
