This is going to be a fun one today! We all know that ants can be a nuisance, especially when they are in places they shouldn’t be…like your house!
But did you know some individuals consider ants art? Yes, you read that correctly. See that amazing picture there to the left? It is not photoshopped! It is the mind-bending photography of artist Andrey Pavlov.
The ants in these spectacular images are very much alive. Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov spends countless hours setting up these fairytale-like scenes.
He has extensively studied ants, and found out that they all follow a very specific path when they’re working. So he decided to put props in their way and well…the rest is beautiful and captivating history!
Check out this fascinating and mesmerizing gallery of Pavlov’s riveting photography. He catches the ants interacting perfectly with his amazing miniature ‘stage sets’.
Evidently he was inspired to create this art after he started reading fairy tales to his children! Every summer he moves to a special cottage to photograph red forest ants in fantasy settings he has carefully crafted by hand. Mr. Pavlov used to work in theater which obviously helps him create such incredible props!
We bet you’ll never look at an ant the same way again! Enjoy the pictures!

What’s green and likes bananas? No, not a monkey dressed as Kermit the Frog—a Cuban cockroach! That’s right, folks, roaches can come in a nice shade of green!
This pale green roach made its way into this country in bananas. You’ll never look at a banana the same way, will you?
It’s scientific name is Panchlora nivea, but it’s also known as the Cuban cockroach or green banana cockroach. This small species of cockroach can be found in Cuba and the Caribbean, and along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas. This little green bug has even been spotted as far north as Charleston, South Carolina!
The females can grow up to 24 mm and the males are 12 to 15 mm long. They are extremely fast and they fly, too!
Interestingly, this nocturnal roach is not considered a pest since it is usually an outdoor species and not often found indoors. They prefer shrubbery, trees, and plants—not your home! The young ones can be found under logs and other debris. It is attracted to both indoor and outdoor lights.
People will often keep this roach as a pet because of it’s cool green color and because it is not an invasive indoor species. It’s also used as food for other pets occasionally.
However cool these green roaches may look, they don’t belong in your home! If you spot a green roach or any other colored roach, contact us immediately and we’ll have your home roach-free in no time!
