Unfortunately, the bugs you’re targeting aren’t actually on board with your plan.

What NOT To Do When You Have Pests In Your Home

Mice, bats, rats, birds, bees, ants, termites – all of these creatures have one thing in common: they can infiltrate your home and cause all kinds of problems. Do they do this on purpose?

When you put it like that, you almost feel rude about getting rid of them. Unfortunately, pests can be just that: a...

How the Anonymous Artist Banksy Authenticates His or Her Work

Interesting scheme: It all starts off with a fairly bog standard gallery style certificate. Details of the work, the authenticating agency, a bit of embossing and a large impressive signature at the bottom. Exactly the sort of things that can be easily copied by someone on a mission to create the perfect fake. That torn-in-half banknote though? Never mind signatures, embossing or wax seals. The Di Faced Tenner is doing all the authentication heavy lifting here. The tear is what uniquely separ...

Banksy's art authentication system displays top-notch cryptographic nous

Banksy's anonymity makes it hard to authenticate his pieces and prints, so Banksy has created a nonprofit called "Pest Control" that issues certificates of authenticity: you send them an alleged Banksy print and £65 and if they agree that it's authentic, they'll return it with a certificate that has a torn-in-half "Di-faced" fake banknote with Lady Diana's face on it, with a handwritten ID number across the bill. As Clinton Freeman points out, this is a great piece of cryptographic enginee...

Does pure capsaicin repel mice and rats?

Shawn Woods has been trying out different home remedies to repel rodents. A while back he grew some hot peppers with a scoville rating of 2 million (one scoville is the minimum detectable amount of capsaicin, the stuff that makes peppers hot). He mixed his peppers with grain to see if it would repel rats and mice, but it didn't keep them away. This time, Woods bought some pure capsaicin crystals (16 million scovilles) to see if it would work as a rat repellent. First, he tested some of the cr...

There are many different types of pests that can make their home in your home. You may not even notice that they are there, or you may never even see a pest, but the signs are there if you know what to look for.

Do moth balls repel mice?

This week, Shawn is trying another repellent suggested on YouTube: mothballs. He place four mothballs in a small box with a hole cut in it for mice to enter. He sprinkled grain in t...

Will the world's hottest pepper keep mice and rats away?

Shawn Woods grew some ultra-hot Carolina Reaper peppers in his backyard to find out if they can be used as a rodent repellent. He first ate a whole pepper himself and it made him cry. Then he mixed up some Carolina Reaper into grains and seeds to see if rodents would stay away. The video camera shows that the mice and rats were not bothered by the peppers and pepper juice. Conclusion - hot peppers are ineffective as a rodent repellent.
