Turkeys Like To Eat These Pests For Thanksgiving

The turkey has been the leading dish for Thanksgiving dinners since the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Natives ate it for Thanksgiving back in 1621. Today, households all across our beautiful nation eat this bird each third Thursday of November. Thanksgiving is one day out of the year we show we’re thankful for our family and other blessings. We consume sizable meals which may comprise cranberry sauce, dressing, corn, bread, pies, and so on. But the center piece is the turkey.

American turkey breeders have produced 270 million turkeys; which will equal to the five billion pounds of turkey Americans will devour on this Thanksgiving. That’s quite a great deal of turkey!

Even though Americans in Knoxville enjoy to dine on turkey for Thanksgiving, turkeys have quite the spread of pests to choose from, too. Today turkey’s grown on farms are traditionally raised to consume corn and other grains, there is the wild turkey that enjoys to feed on bugs and other pests in order to get their protein. Folks have even thought about using turkeys for scorpion control. (Well there you have it, would you rather deal with bird crap or pests? Give Bulwark Exterminating a call in Knoxville so we can administer your bug problem.)

Now earlier I said that turkeys have a menu of preferred creepy crawlers. What do you think their menu looks like? I believe it looks like the this:

Hors D’oeuvre

Escargot and garlic herb butter with a side of Leopard Snail
Salad Course
American Dogwood salad covered with North American Millipedes
Main Entrée
A huge variety of raw grasshoppers, field crickets and black carpenter ants. Also prepared with a side of wolf spiders garnished with dandelions.
A delicious earthworm mud pie with a hint of chiggers.

Tis the season to be busy, and Thanksgiving is swiftly approaching. And Bulwark pest control, would love to wish you and your household a Happy Thanksgiving! So take some time to relax, watch some football and spend it with your relatives. Before you know it the Tryptophan will kick in and you’ll be snoozing.
