Book “Termites, you have to want to”

The book, “Termites, you have to want to” is written by lzzy, the reformed termite and Jim. It is written in the first person by both lzzy and Jim. The purpose of this publication is to put into everyday language the challenges that termite technicians have had to endure in the treatment of structures, understanding the label and in dealing with regulatory agencies for over the past four decades.

We will briefly review and discuss the different kinds of termites and their biology so as to have reference points as we journey through this publication. We will then go back in our time machine to review the early developments of our industry and how it developed and evolved into the monster that it is now. Then we will project into the future using the past and present as our guide. The language used is not fancy or necessarily scientific, as it tends to diminish the clarity of what is being spoken . It is rather in terms understandable to the everyday reader.


Termites have historically been viewed as pests. However, once you meet lzzy, the engaging termite who takes you through the history, biology and control of his species, you will think differently about these little creatures! Social communal and overall amazing, termites hold an important place in the world’s ecology. Yet, it is important to keep them in check in human communities. Mr Melendez’s book gives the reader a clear an easy- to- understand overview of the various aspects of termites and termite control. Enjoyable reading for everyone not just pest control professionals.

Organic VS Organics

In our last blog we mentioned that we would post a blog on a more regular basis, but because of the overwhelming response,  we saw it proper to allow it to continue as we were getting positive  comments from all over the world. We take this time to thank you for all your editorializing and your positive comments.    Now To Organics VS Organics.

The word organic has become the word of the past decades and to the present, and we don’t  foresee a change in the years to come. The word is used in Health foods, gardening, Landscaping, building materials, medicine, cosmetics, pest control; to name a few and the list goes on. The word green has become synonymous with organic. So, what is organic? Well! It all depends on whether you are the consumer or the merchant, in other words- are you trying to buy something or sell something. If you are a merchant you use it to promote your product, if you are a consumer, you use the word organic to help you make a wise, healthy and well informed decision. But you must understand in what context the word is being used, whose definition is being used. Let’s look at a few definitions.

Merriam- Webster Dictionary

1- Grown or made without the use of artificial chemicals.
2- Not using artificial chemicals.
3- Relating to or obtained from living things.

Are you confused yet? If you google organic foods, Definition,you will find, Definition: “Organic” technically refers to any material that is carbon-based. That said, organically raised food follows a set of prescribed practices that differ in a number of ways from industrialized agriculture. Only farms that go through the certification process of their country or state can label their food organic. The process is expensive, and many small farms choose to forgo certification even though their own practices meet or exceed those required. Organic standards vary, but generally include:

  • Prohibition of synthetic chemicals, irradiation, sewage sludge, or genetically modified organisms
  • Farmland that has been free of the above for a time (in the U.S. it’s three years)

Try this: ?  USDA To Certify Non-GMO Foods With New Label

NPRMay 15 02:42 PM

The government runs organic and antibiotic-free labeling programs, but has stayed out of the non-GMO labeling fray. That is, until a food company asked the USDA for help, and the agency obliged.

It is good to note that almost all material are carbon based and almost all chemical, whether toxic or not are derived from the carbon molecule. Now if the above does not confuse you, You’re  probably a genius. And if you are not a genius, What is the answer, and how can I make a wise decision?  Especially when it comes to food, gardening and of course fertilizers. Well the answer is very simple! It all has to do with the condition and health of the soil. If the soil is unhealthy the plant is unhealthy, no matter whether it is grown organically or not, that is – grown by the government standards.

If a food bears a USDA Organic label, it means it’s produced and processed according to the USDA standards. The seal is voluntary, but many organic producers use it.

Remember this, organic is not a magic word! Sodium chloride (table salt) is organic, now this is vital to understand, Doctor Richard Anderson, N.D., N.M.D. in his book Cleans & Purify Thyself on page 27 of Book One says, “ Sodium chloride (table salt), cannot be used by the body”…” the body could only efficiently use sodium that has been chelated to a protein molecule, Minerals chelated like this are referred to as “ organic.””  On page 26 he states,“ The body cannot efficiently use rock minerals. It must use minerals that have passed through the plant kingdom. Minerals from the plant kingdom have been chelated to a protein molecule through the magic of phoptsynthesis.”In other words the plant kingdom is the only kingdom that can convert none organics into, true organic. Can you understand now why it is vital to have a healthy soil, and why you must, Feed Your Soil. If the proper elements are not in your soil it is impossible for your plant to assimilate them to true organics. The results, healthy looking sick plants, turf, vegetables, flowers, tree, etc, all prone to disease and insets.

It is our sincere wish that you think seriously of your health and of that of your garden and or produce. Your most valuable possession is your life. Remember all the elements in the ground are found in our bodies and they all play a vital role. Genesis 2:7

Feed Your Soil -Health Food For Plants

Dear Caretaker of our beautiful planet Earth,

This is the first issue of many to come in which we will discuss challenges we face when making decisions pertaining to our gardens, landscapes, environment and our health.  After all, without good health our life (which is our most important possession), becomes a struggle instead of a joy.  When referring to our life we must intergrade , physically, mentally, emotionally and last but not least spiritually.  What we consume is directly related to our life as mentioned above.  For example, if you feed your mind on garbage as in crime and violence, crime and violence will be your platform. Garbage in, garbage out.  Just look at the heinous crimes being committed today and compare it with today’s television and movie programming.  In order to consume a proper diet, be it physical, emotional or spiritual we must be

(1) well informed,

(2) understand the phraseology being used

(3) the meaning of the words being used and

(4) being able to discern the difference between marketing, sales and genuine concern for the Public.

The last point mentioned #4 is where we shine, genuine concern.   We at Feed Your Soil are interested not only in selling Product, but defusing information into the Public that will enable you to make an intelligent, wise and well-informed decisions, one that will benefit you and your love ones, at the same time doing your share in caring for the safety and welfare of our Planet.  You might ask: What does all this have to do with fertilizer and my garden?  Well, read this.  Dr. Bernard Jensen, a pioneer in the Health field for 45 years, at that time in 1984, said in his book: “The Healing Power of Chlorophyll From Plant Life”, on page 16, said the following, “We create problem-foods when we grow them with unnatural fertilizers and sprays.  These substances accumulate in the plant.  We end up with a “drugged” food.  When we create a drugged food, we create a food that has an accumulative activity when it enters the human body.  These sprays, pesticides, and inorganic fertilizers will eventually get to the tissues in our body and cause a disturbance.  It’s these substances that are found to be carcinogenic in most cases It’s the addition of these substances that gets into our livestock.  While the first piece of meat we eat isn’t going to cause problems, the accumulative effect of many pieces of meat containing these additions will. Our Carcinogenic Environment  Many of these substances that are found to be carcinogenic are used on our fruits and vegetables.  That’s why I say we are living in a carcinogenic environment.  We are living it, drinking it, eating it. Survival Law No. 3 We come to this simple truth: We must REPLENISH the earth with everything that ever grew on this earth.  Everything must come back as fertilizer for all the soil.  When “All” comes back, we have a wholeness which will contain all the chemical elements needed for health.  No shortages will occur in the man who partakes of food grown in this soil.”

Now if the ground is void of macro and micro-nutrients, will your plants be healthy, even though they might look pretty and big? It’s like a plant having walking pneumonia. It doesn’t know it is sick, not to mention that when you consume it, with time, it will weaken your immune system, with sickness on the horizon. If you don’t consume it as in trees and ornamentals, your species immune system will, likewise, be compromised, resulting in insects, diseases, poor growth, and an unhappy gardener.  Don’t blame the plants, blame the soil they live in, which only you can control. We hope this gives you a preview of what our mission is all about.  We recommend you sign up for our Newsletter.  Print them out and save for future references. In our next Blog we will discuss a very widespread misunderstanding of the words “Organic” and “Inorganic”, entitled, “Organic vs Organic”.  Don’t miss it!
