Ant on a flower
Nothing is more disturbing than looking on your kitchen counter or floor and seeing tiny little ants moving around. Since it is starting to warm up more, the chances of seeing ants around the house is increasing.

All-Terrain vehicles (ATVs) are becoming increasingly popular on farms because they can be used to haul livestock feed or to get to fields. They are very handy and can be of great help on a farm. However, as they have increased in popularity among farm families, the number of accidents and injuries to youth and adults due to ATV accidents has increased.
