Here is a video of a gopher asleep and dreaming. You can see it wiggling its legs. The gopher is having a dream.
We serviced a house that had a bedbug infestation. The mattress was infested, with lots of live bugs hiding in the mattress edge folds and under its labels. After removal of the mattresses, and preparation, we treated the room with Crossfire Insecticide. Upon inspection, one week later, we found that the floor area, where the head of the bed was against wall, had also been infested with bedbugs. They died in large numbers, as shown in the video.

One or two tree squirrels were attacking a Japanese maple tree, chewing off small branches. There was little we could do, as the homeowners did not want to harm the squirrels.
Looking online, we find that this behavior of attacking and chewing off small branches of Japanese maples is common.

I saw these two western fence lizards in front of one of the offices (I see them all the time there), and one was sitting on its haunches, a position I’d not seen one take before. It gives the lizard a higher point of view to look for bugs to eat. I was lucky to get these pictures.

Our favorite weed gun, the Sherman valve, is no longer made. These brass valves fit comfortably in the hand and in the arm hang, were light weight and highly durable.
We are looking for an alternative. This VI valve would probably suffice, but it is not made as a free-standing valve, but is part of this 16″ LONG RANGE MISTING SPRAY GUN, an SG-2200. The gun would need to be adaptable to Spraying Systems nozzles.
