What???...Those are TERMITES???!!!

Yes, as a matter of fact, unfortunately Ma'am, those are termites...not flying ants.  Hopefully you never have to hear those words, however, as the weather warms up and the rains become more frequent, so do the activity levels of most pests....especially termites.  During the winter termites go deep under ground to stay warm and are […]

Swiss Cheese Sweater?

As the temperatures outside drop, it's time for many of us to change to our winter wardrobes.  Unfortunately when opening our cedar chests we might find that a sweater which was in perfectly good condition suddenly resembles Swiss cheese.  Okay maybe Swiss cheese is an exaggeration, but you might find small holes that weren't there […]

Flea Control in the Home

You just walked in after a well-deserved, relaxing vacation and all of a sudden, you and your family are "attacked" by fleas.  Adult fleas are stimulated by movement, and typically this movement is in reference to the host from which the fleas are feeding on (cat, dog, etc...).

This is the time of year when the spider population seems to be at its peak.  It is hot out there, and what's worse is that it appears that the rain is unfortunately a scarcity at best. For this reason a number of pests have been searching for the same thing we are....water, and they […]

Millions of Millipedes

Okay, maybe millions is an exaggeration but when millipedes decide to invade a home they can do it in a big way.  Millipedes tend to stay in the ground, require a lot of moisture and are nocturnal, therefore, to reduce a millipede problem minimize excessive moisture in the yard.  By keeping the grass short and […]
