Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
The Canada goose is one of the most common North American pest birds, known for stubbornly returning to the same areas year after year. Populations of year-round resident geese have been exploding in recent years, while migratory birds add to their numbers seasonally.
In the United States, September marks the return of birds from Canada joining the resident flocks, and the problem gets worse as winter goes on. For this reason, Bird-X pest control experts recommend setting up goose prevention devices now when resident geese are no longer attached to their nests, and before new geese move in and get too comfortable. The key is prevention as early on as possible.
Canada geese are complex creatures with extremely sharp sensory capabilities in both hearing and vision. They follow instinctive cyclical behaviors throughout the year. Knowledge of these seasonal variations is essential to implementing successful strategies for long-term Canada goose control.
Because Canada geese are creatures of habit, once a habitat has been chosen they are known for returning year after year. They select areas that meet their needs; grassy areas and especially those with bodies of water, such as golf courses, corporate grounds, and hospital grounds provide these birds with everything they need. Grass itself serves as a nutritious food source, which is why these birds are so often found on lawns. By using a liquid aversion product such as Bird Stop to cover the lawns, birds find the grass no longer appetizing and will seek out grassy areas that taste better. This is the same product used by farmers to protect fruit; it is harmless and commonly used.
Geese also respond to sound technology, but recorded sounds need to be specific to their species (most bird callers are not made for geese). Dr. Philip Whitford, Ph.D., who has studied Canada geese for over 30 years, recorded the only documented natural recording of a Canada goose alarm call. Combined with the Canada goose alert call, these sounds were used to create the Bird-X GooseBuster. Tested by Dr. Whitford over many years, this is the most effective, continuously relied upon goose control product available on the market today.
Visual decoys can also be beneficial, especially when combined with the tactics mentioned above (by creating a multi-sensory attack and making an area as unwelcoming as possible, geese are far less likely to get very comfortable). When placed on property early in the season, freshly returning geese will quickly see that predators have moved into their territory, think this area is not safe, and will move on.
General bird control means the clean-up of any bird mess (feather, droppings, and any remaining nests), as birds look for these markings to recognize safe territory. This is also just good housekeeping, and any responsible building owner, facility manager, or landscaper should be doing this anyway, since bird feces can carry disease, fungus, and other potentially dangerous materials. Geese themselves can be dangerous to humans as they are prone to attack, especially if they are allowed to nest. Furthermore, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 prevents the removal of geese when they are actively nesting until the goslings are old enough to move on safely; therefore prevention is in anyones best interest.
By installing goose control methods now, the risk of a larger goose problem later is greatly reduced. Once nesting starts in later winter and early spring, geese are much more challenging to move; the best opportunity to start a program is now in late summer and early Fall, when adults have recovered from their molt and goslings are capable of leaving.
Bird-X, Inc. is the leading international brand of bird control products since 1964, and is dedicated to protecting human health, wildlife and the environment in which we all live. The Chicago-based company manufactures a complete line of unique pest control products with an unmatched focus on quality, efficacy, and customer service.

Tabelog, Inc. has announced the winners of its summer 2014 Tabelog Restaurant Awards, hosted by the companys restaurant review site. The top food bloggers from the San Francisco Bay Area came together as a judges panel to select the top restaurants in five fun and informative categories. The winners are awarded with an exclusive Tabelog Restaurant Award for their restaurant along with all of the exposure associated with hundreds of blogs and thousands of followers.
The awards are hosted by restaurant review site Tabelog.us which is the US version of the 50 million member website in Japan. Launched April 2013, Tabelog aims to bring high quality reviews of restaurants in US to food lovers, enlisting the help of top food bloggers, critics, and industry experts.
From a business lunch to a date night, Tabelog is the place to learn about restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Food experts review everything from their favorite dish and how it was prepared to what desserts they recommend. You can also learn what to expect of restaurants, how to dress and sometimes even the history of the restaurants and the chef. If you want to impress at dinner, these reviews are second only to eating there itself.
Tabelog calculates restaurant rankings using an algorithm based on both user reviews and point-based ratings. This allows its users to find restaurants rated highest by local food experts by area or type of cuisine.
Here are the winners of the Tabelog Restaurant Awards:

Wild Mint, an eco-friendly, healthy living company, has released a Lunch Savers guide to help inform parents on ways they can save money, their health, and the environment with reusable, waste-free lunches this back to school season. The guide contains research about the differences between a disposable lunch, containing materials such as plastic baggies, paper napkins and disposable bottles, and a reusable, waste-free lunch, where everything can be eaten, reused, recycled or composted.
One of their most striking findings is that parents can save over $ 400 per child per school year by packing a reusable, waste-free lunch over a disposable one. When it comes to lunch gear, choosing reusable contents can help parents save money over time by only having to purchase the products once instead of the purchase-then-toss cycle that results from disposable gear. Monetary savings can also come from the food packed in a reusable lunch. For example, parents can save money by purchasing a large box of crackers instead of individual packs, a jar of juice instead of juice boxes, and fresh cut fruit instead of fruit cups.
The guide also details numerous health and environmental benefits for families who forgo disposable lunches for healthier, reusable ones:
Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014
Drug injury attorney Jeffrey D. DeCarlo of Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A., has learned that Xarelto lawsuits already have been filed alleging the blood-thinning medication caused uncontrolled bleeding, according to a Reuters report on June 14.
Reuters reports lawsuits have been filed in the United States, as of June 14, 2014. According to court records, one lawsuit was filed February 24 on behalf of Virginia Stuntebeck, a Kentucky woman who alleged she suffered severe internal bleeding related to the use of Xarelto.
Court records state that Stuntebecks suit against Janssen Research & Development and Bayer Corp. alleges she suffered severe bleeding requiring hospitalization after being prescribed Xarelto in July 2012 to treat an irregular heartbeat. (Stuntebeck v. Janssen Research & Development LLC et al, Case Number 140201754; Court: Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas).
Another recent lawsuit alleges Nancy Packards husband, William N. Packard of Florida, died because of uncontrollable bleeding after being exposed to Xarelto (Nancy Packard v. Janssen Research & Development LLC et al; Case Number 9:14cv80831; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida).
According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) medication guide, Xarelto can cause potentially serious bleeding and may lead to death.
The FDA recommends that Xarelto users who have experienced any of the following side effects call their doctor or get immediate medical help if they develop any of the signs or symptoms of bleeding. Some of the signs include reoccurring nose bleeds; unusual bleeding from the gums; heavier-than-normal menstrual bleeding; and red, pink or brown urine, among other symptoms.
DeCarlo, who has handled complex drug injury claims, said people who have experienced adverse side effects of any medication should consult with an attorney to learn about their rights.
A serious injury or a fatality due to exposure to a drug can lead to serious financial hardship, emotional distress and other losses, DeCarlo said. Attorneys can help people pursue the compensation they need so they can get on with their lives.
