Choosing a Termite/Pest Company

How long has the company been in business? If you are receiving quotes from 2-3 companies and one is considerably lower in price, be careful. Do they have different options in termite protection/pest protection, such as “green” services? Some people could care less about “going green” when it comes to bugs and termites. However, it is important to think about what “green” means. Go with a company that can provide several services. If you have ants in your kitchen, termites in your garage and mosquitoes in your backyard you don’t want to have to call three different companies.

How to Rid Yellow Jackets using Glue Boards

Not only is this a new approach, but it is also a green option to control yellow jackets If nothing else, it’s one heck of a show.

Next time you have a yellow jacket nest in a wall void or behind siding use a rat glue tray to block the entry for a second just long enough to snag one yellow jacket. Then, leave the glue board as close as possible to the entry point.

What is Plastic #6?

You look on the bottom of your cup and there it is…the universal recycling sign with a number 6 in the middle. “Great”, you think, “I can toss this in the recycle bin”. WRONG, in most cases. All plastics are labeled, however, not all are accepted from your local recycling company.

You Asked, We Answered

Hi, Thank you for the question. It’s important to be cautious about materials being used inside especially when a person claims “Green” practices. The products used in our industry have 2 different components: an active ingredient and an inert. The inerts often are propellants, or materials used as carrying agents for the active ingredient.

Customer expectations continue to rise and tolerance for irritants, in this case a pest, or the illusion of their presence, may drive them away, for good.
