Il est déconseillé d'utiliser une vadrouille mouillée. Favorisez plutôt l'usage de l'aspirateur ou du balai. Les liquides précipitent l'usure du plancher et peuvent endommager le fini. Afin de nettoyer les éclaboussures, utilisez un linge légèrement humide. Un nettoyage hebdomadaire est conseillé afin d'éviter l'accumulation de dépôts de poussière.
La dimension très spéculative du marché immobilier peut avoir une influence sur les prix voire être en partie à l'origine d'une crise mondiale comme la crise de 2007, lorsqu'elle aboutit à la constitution d'une bulle immobilière, dont l'importance peut être aussi grande que celle des bulles financières et dans certains cas se conjuguer avec une bulle financière ou dans d'autre cas être cause d'un krach financier international.

A C. pallida female will find a spot for her nest. She will then dig diagonally down about 12 inches (30 cm). At the end of this tunnel, she will dig an 1 inch (2.5 cm) long vertical chamber where the egg will be laid. The chamber will be about 8 inches (20 cm) below the surface. In this chamber, the female will form a brood pot lined with wax. The brood pot will contain nectar and pollen similar to the bee bread in other bees; however, unlike other bees, the bee bread is the consistency of molasses instead of being solid.[7] The egg is laid on top of the bee bread and sealed in with wax, and the tunnel is partially filled with dirt to protect the egg.[8] A female can create several of the burrows during her lifetime.
Desert birds and lizards are predators of C. pallida, and these bees can be parasitized by the meloid beetle (Tegrodera erosa); however, rain is the largest threat to these bees.[12] At night and during the heat of the day, C. pallida bees will hide under rocks, trees, in burrows, etc. When it rains, the bees can get wet. If the bee is in a burrow, it may simply drown. If the bee is underneath something, when night comes, the bee may freeze to death due to the low temperatures in the desert. Since these bees are solitary, they don’t have the protection of a hive or colony; thus, they are more susceptible to the elements.[11]
The egg will then hatch within two weeks, and the grub will eat the nourishment that the mother left. The amount of bee bread provided will directly affect the size of the offspring (more food = larger size). When the food has been eaten and the grub has fully developed, the grub will turn into a prepupa. Over the course of eleven months, the prepupa will undergo metamorphosis to become an adult bee. The adult bee will then dig to the surface in late April or early May, and will live for about a month. By late July, virtually no C. pallida can be found.[7]
