OK, so we have a small ant problem. I really want to hire a professional, but we are going to try one more round of DIY. We have used the Terro liquid ant bat in conjunction with some granuals and spray treatment for the outside. We, of course, have seen an influx of ants inside attacking the liquid bait. But, when will it end? After more research, I have decided to go with the Terro products. I will get the shaker bag, outdoor liquid bait, indoor liquid bait trays, and another powder for the foundation and around trees. If this doesn’t fix the problem, then it is on to a professional.
As the weather begins to get colder, at least here in Florida, you will want to think about protecting yourself from the elements during your outdoor workouts.
1. Dress for the weather. You don’t want to go for a jog in shorts and a t-shirt when it is 30 degrees outside. However, you also don’t want to dress to warm. Your body, obviously, creates a considerable amount of heat as you begin to sweat. Wear clothing that is easy to remove when you begin to sweat and put back on once you cool down.
2. Protect your ears, hands, and feet. When the weather begins to get colder, your body concentrates the blood flow in the center of your body, or core. This leaves your extremities vulnerable to frostbite. Wear gloves, warm socks, and cover up those red ears.
3. What’s a wind chill? When the wind begins to blow in the cold weather, the air feels colder then it actually is. This is the wind chill. When working out in the cold, the wind can penetrate your warm layers and compromise that warm cozy layer surrounding your body. Prepare for this, workout inside, or think about skipping your workout all together.
4. Make yourself seen. As always, make sure that your wear clothing that can be easily seen or reflective. Drivers hardly pay attention to anything other then their phone as it is. You don’t want to make it even harder for them to see you.
Be safe, but make sure you still exercise. There is always some way to get your heart rate up, just make sure you do so 4 – 6 times a week.
