Have Fork, Will Travel

Las Vegas, New Mexico

The first time I drove through Las Vegas, I had no idea what lay hidden beyond the freeway exits. I remember a Chinese restaurant along the main gas/food drag, and any number of New Mexican restaurants and familiar fast foods. But I’ve since embarked down the side streets to get a closer look at what was once a boomtown. It’s a nice outing just 125 miles from Burque, through verdant hills and open grasslands.

Bugs and the modern age

Just thinking about ants or spiders makes me itch and shudder. Every time I read this week’s op-ed from the Bugman, I got a serious case of the crawlies. Richard Fagerlund, a nontoxic pest management consultant, says the number of inquiries from folks who think they have bugs on them has increased drastically over the years. He posits that it could be a result of pesticides, pollutants or genetically modified food.

The Crawlies

Got you under my skin

Twenty years ago, pest control expert Richard “Bugman” Fagerlund would get maybe one call a month about someone who said they felt imaginary bugs crawling on them. Today, he gets them almost on a daily basis.
