Submitted by: Carol Oon

When it comes to deciding which type of LED light to buy for your home it can prove somewhat challenging as there is such a wide selection to choose from today. So it is a good idea if you spend some time learning more about what is available. The best place of course to do this kind of research will be online.

There are plenty of places offering advice and information on these items so helping to ensure that you make a more informed decision as to which form of LED light you should be buying.

However as you do look into these lights there are certain things that you need to be taking into consideration. In this article we take a look at just what some of these things are and of course which we hope will help you to purchase the right kinds of LED lights for your home.

Consideration 1 – It is important that when deciding what size lights to buy you choose ones that will produce enough light to illuminate the room in which they are being installed. The best way to determine what size you need is to look at the number of watts the lights use. So of course the higher the wattage then the much brighter the light emitted from the bulbs used in the lights will be.

Consideration 2 – Another thing that you need to be taking into consideration when it comes to buying these forms of lights is the type of color they emit. You will find that this will have an effect on the brightness of the light that they are emitting. Of course you will need to make sure that you choose lights that are suitable for the way in which they are going to be used. If you are installing such lighting in say your kitchen then the color must be much brighter than that you would be using in say your living room, bedroom or bathroom.

What you will find today is that the range of colors for LED lights is almost endless as the colors can be created using RGB techniques. Today however there is generally two to three shades of white light that these can emit commonly referred to as cold, warm or natural white. The first shade is the one that emits the brightest light that will have a slight bluish tinge to it. The second type is the kind where the light emitted has a more yellowish tinge to it and feels very similar to that of the sun. Whilst the final type is the one that is a combination of the two already discussed.

Consideration 3 – One other thing of course that will affect what kind of LED light you buy is how much you can afford to spend. Again the more you spend the better quality lighting you will have which means the type of light they emit will be far better. However if you want to save money on the cost of your purchase it is worth considering purchasing what you want online.

How To Stop The Flea Cycle On Your Pets}

How To Stop The Flea Cycle On Your Pets


Alex KellyAs a pet owner, I thought I knew pretty much everything when it came to cats and dogs.Having flea problems in the summer was something I was used to dealing with. Flea treatment prevention in the spring and extra grooming in the summer months helped to keep the little blood suckers off my beloved pets. However, I didn’t anticipate a flea breakout in the winter. This particular winter in my London home was freezing with a long spell of snow ahead, so naturally the central heating was on full blast! I had never had a flea infestation in the colder months so I was a bit confused as to how they had survived and what they were living on? I found out they usually they lie dormant in winter but with the central heating on these little pests came back to life with a vengeance. To combat fleas during the winter season, it is vital to treat both the pet and their environment, because fleas live a large part of their life cycle off of the pet and in the environment (house, bed, garden etc). Fleas need warm and humid temperatures to survive. The inside of your house provides a warm environment to allow fleas to live all year round regardless of seasons. I didn’t have carpet, floorboards only, so I thought that apart from my pets bedding etc I had cleaned everything at the end of that summer and all would be fine. WRONG! First of all you need to get down and dirty with the hoover. Carpet and floorboards are the perfect place for the eggs and larvae to hide as they can easily survive in the cracks and crevices. Then, when you or your pet walks by, they latch themselves on. Have you ever noticed when you have a flea problem in your home, that you have bite marks around your ankles more than anywhere else. That’s because of the flea problem in your floor gaps and cracks. Fleas will bite you once and then fall off as they can’t survive human blood, but will happily live off your pet forever.Those little hideaway places your pet likes to go to, under the bed, a cosy corner, in a secret cupboard are all breeding places for fleas. Not only do you have to hoover and spray the floor in your home you also have to hoover and treat your mattress and hot wash your bedding. Fleas are known to come to the surface when they feel the vibrations from a vacuum cleaner, then straight after, you spray them with the household flea treatment. Keep your pets out of the rooms as you individually treat them and close the door for as long as you can. House flea spray is not to be used anywhere near an animal, spot on treatments for them will do the trick. Vacuuming will also collect the eggs, so you’ll be beginning to break the cycle. Whether you allow your pet on your bed or not, it is strongly advised to spray both sides of the mattress straight after it has been hovered. Throw out all of your pets toys, bedding and play stands. Harsh, I know but they’ll soon be just as attached to the new toys as they were to the old flea infested ones. Make no mistake, fleas and flea eggs are made of strong stuff. They will survive and survive, so be merciless.Breaking the cycle will only happen if you treat your pets at the same time as you treat the house. 80 – 90% of fleas and eggs are not on your pet but hiding dormant in your carpet, furniture and bedding. Eggs become larvae, larvae become pupae so the more of the pupae you vacuum up the better. The pupae stage is when they develop into adult fleas and the cocoon surrounding the growing flea is water tight and resistant to insecticides. So vacuum up as much as you possibly can before spraying. Be vicious about it, they will multiply and come back again. When you start spraying make sure you get into all the tiny cracks and gaps as well as on your furniture, curtains and rugs. Also bin the hoover bag when you’ve finished. Yes believe it or not the little pests will happily survive in the warm vacuum sack. Now even in the winter I groom my pets thoroughly and keep flea treatments to hand at all times. Once I had vigorously tackled my home and pets I had only one further very mild occurrence, which never returned. The key is to break the cycle and the only way to do that is to treat your house and pets at the same time, thoroughly!
