Honor nature. Love nature. Keep it close at hand.

Imagine being able to carry insect life around with you wherever you go… And no I’m not talking about having a nasty lice infestation.

I’m talking about an entirely new take on time—The Ant Watch!

Inspired by nature and child like curiosity, The Analog Watch Company is offering a living conversation piece featuring three to five harvester ants in a portable enclosure that you wear on your wrist.

Those sporting the watch can be in awe as these wonderful ants create their own little world. Marvel at their ingenuity, all day long, as you go about your day watch as they go about theirs.

The Ant Watch runs $59.00, and you can choose from two classic colors; classic ant farm green and black leather.

See for yourself:

Once you receive the Ant Watch, and the 3-5 harvester ants; the trick is getting them into the watch. By placing the ants in the refrigerator for 10 minutes they become less lively. You then use the included tweezers to gently place them in the watch with the sand.

To keep them alive, you have to feed them sugar water a couple times a month with the included dropper. Every purchase comes with replacement ants for a year.

The Ant Watch- Our Favorite April Fool’s Joke

As a bug guy, I was so excited to pick up one of these watches for myself. I was all set to even do a promotional contest on Blog Pest Control’s Facebook page where a lucky follower could win a watch. That was until I clicked the pre-order button on Analog Watch Company’s site, only to discover it was only a cruel hoax.

Got me! April Fool’s!

This April Fool’s joke was actually on of my favorites. Make sure you check out our 10 April Fools Pranks Involving Bugs article!

10 April Fools Pranks Involving Bugs

It’s April Fools Day and all of us are on high alert; making sure our family, roommates, friends and coworkers don’t pull one over on us.

For all of you pranksters out there, there’s no easier prank to pull off than a classic bug prank. Whether you’re going to dump a jar of crickets on your buddy as he takes a shower, put a fake fly in somebody’s spaghetti, or put a tarantula on your boss’s desk; a creepy bug can be the cornerstone of any successful prank. Here are a just a few April Fools pranks involving bugs:

Scorpion Prank

Thumbs up for scorpions! Watch what happens when a massive Emperor Scorpion is let loose on this poor girl in the bathroom. “Get it away; it’s going to KILL ME… HE WILL KILL US ALL!!!” You may want to turn down the volume on your computer for this one.

Bug Exterminator Prank!

Note to pest control professionals everywhere… Here’s how you don’t spray for cockroaches. While technically the prank doesn’t involve any actual bugs, a bug exterminator is equally effective.

Spider Prank

Don’t get startled this April Fools Day if a spider mysteriously lands on you from the sky.

The Cockroach Prank

This cockroach prank was featured on one of our previous blogs entitled A Roach Is Not A Love Bug. It is too good to not share again. Enjoy!

Cricket Prank – Infesting Your Coworker’s Truck

I just found another definition for the word MADNESS… The sound of 2000 crickets chirping in unison inside your truck.

Drive Thru Bug Prank

As if fast food employees didn’t have it bad enough already, now they have to put up with giant cockroaches on there hands. Let’s just hope the only cockroaches found at your favorite drive thru are fake– just like the one in this prank.

Giant Hairy Spider Dropped On Boyfriend

It’s easy. It’s a classic. It’s a simple spider on a string, and this poor sap lets his girlfriend get the best of him.

Mixed Nuts and Worms Prank

One thing we know for sure, food and worms don’t mix. Watch what happens when a bag of meal-worms is placed in a unsuspecting woman’s favorite snack.


Roach Prank

Why haven’t I ever though of this before… A giant plastic roach tied to some fishing line. The possibilities are endless! It can definitely go a long way in making most anybody squirm.


Big Scary Spider Prank

Who knew dogs were just as scared of spiders as we are? My dog just eats them! I guess when the spider is as big as a domesticated cat, even a dog will run.


All of us bug guys here at Blog Pest Control and Bulwark Exterminating would like to warn you to be on the lookout this April Fools Day for scorpions, roaches, crickets, and spiders. Have a safe April Fools Day. Happy pranking!
