Pest Control

Is My Home Roach Proof??

Even though it’s “technically” Fall, the temperatures outside don’t reflect it…yet.  Word on the street, however, is that cooler weather is (thankfully) on the way!  With that in mind, many “outdoor” pests may decide that indoors is the place to be. One of those outdoor pests that we contend with in the Fall is the […]

With the heat coming in full force the last couple of weeks, it certainly feels as though we went straight from Winter to Summer overnight. And some recent showers have added to the overall mugginess as well. The showers, which are necessary for food production, lush lawns and colorful flower beds, also bring about the […]

Protect your home from overwintering pests!!

This time of year, pests will begin to start the process of overwintering.  Overwintering is an insect’s natural way of preparing itself to survive the upcoming colder temperatures.  This may include both physical and biological preparations. In the case of some insects and animals, this could involve migration, which is the process of physically moving […]

Brown recluse spider vs. grass spider

With the recent rain that we have experienced, springtime is in full swing and summer is just around the corner.  The showers, which are necessary for food production, lush lawns and colorful flower beds, also bring about the reproductive stage of many insects.  Particularly ants and termites.

Most people can relate to this…you open your front or back door and in comes a giant, flying creature of some sort that manages to get past you and the next thing you know it’s “bouncing” off the ceiling.  Many home owners have been experiencing lately an invasion of what appears to be giant mosquitoes.

Boxelder Bug Blitz!?!?

Well, it’s winter out there, and it sure is col…..uhh, well, maybe not!  The past week or so after the “ice storm” has been unseasonably warm…even borderline hot! It seems as soon as it gets cold for a couple of days, it goes right back to warmer temperatures causing some insects to think it’s time […]
