SOURCE: A green insect attached itself to my dog's head

I don't know what your dog got into, but check out Squirrel lumps, and see if that is what it is. I don't know of any insect that will burrow into a live animal, besides a tick, and that is not an insect. hope this helps.

Who will believe I have Morgellones Disease so that I can get help?


Locate any eggs, larvae, pupae, and worms that you can. Put them in jars and freeze them (so they don't change). Call an exterminator and show your bugs to them, so they know what they are trying to treat the house for. Find a new doctor, bring your bugs, in the jars, in sealed plastic baggies, to show him/her.

GOOD LUCK!!!

My puppy 2nd vet visit is today I found worms in her stool right now do I take to emergency vet now


Bring her to the regular vet. There's an excellent chance that those worms are either from flea larvae or from eating something that had worms. Either way, your regular vet will take care of this just as well (or better) than the emergency vet.

SAP IN LEAKING FROM MY PINE TREE, IS THIS A SIGN OF BORES, MY APRICOT LOOKS THE SAME.


Sap is the pines natrural defense and protective measure when the tree has a break or cut in the bark or is being attacked by insects. So the sap could be seeping out from a broken branch or if it is a borer, there would be small holes(1/4 inch or less) in the bole(trunk) of the tree and there will also be sawdust coming out of the holes and around the base of the tree from the larvae eating the tree.

Vivitar 40 piece microscope set shrimp hatchery instructions


1. To hatch the eggs, first prepare a brine solution. Pour the entire contents of a vial containing sea salt into a quart of
tap water. Add the brine shrimp eggs into the
solution. Allow the solution to stand at room
temperature (70 - 80F or 21 - 26C) for 24
to 48 hours and the eggs will hatch into nauplius larvae (this is the first stage of development after leaving the eggs).
2. Place some of the larvae into one of the compartments of the shrimp hatchery .
3. Place some fresh brine solution in another
compartment. Add a small amount of yeast to
this new solution. Then, using the eyedropper, transfer some of the larvae into this compartment as well. The yeast will
serve as food and produce oxygen for the larvae as they develop into maturity. Without food and oxygen, the shrimp cannot develop
and will die. Mature brine shrimp are known
as Artemia Salina.
Note: Using an eyedropper with just the right
pressure to get a desired amount of liquid
onto a slide can be harder than it looks. Take
out a clean slide and practice squeezing a
drop of water onto the slide until you feel
comfortable that you can control the size of
the drop that you're squeezing out.
4. Observe the life cycle of the shrimp as they
grow: the dried eggs, the hatching eggs, the
developing larvae, and finally, the mature
shrimp.
5. The mature shrimp may be fed to fish in an
aquarium if you so wish. However, first
remove the shrimp from the brine solution
and place them into fresh water. An increase
in salt may harm the fish in the aquarium.
NOTE: Use the color filter especially when looking at clear or dim specimens.
