Mosquitoes & Ticks

Yes, we can help with these. For ticks, we use two spray treatments /summer, and a bunch of tick tubes, which are biodegradable cardboard tubes that contain treated cotton attractive to mice for making their nests nice & comfy. The bedding doesn’t contain enough pesticide to hurt the mice, but it is not nice to […]

Yikes! I am a very bad blogger!

I’m shocked at how long it’s been since I last updated this blog! Pretty sure I sat down to do it at least once or twice over the summer, but apparently I got distracted before I actually finished. My bad. In my defense though, I’ve had a lot on my plate. Teaching in Barrie, hanging […]

Holiday Weekend

You’d think having lived in this area for – geez, is it really more than 20 years now?! – I’d know better!! But in my defense, I was so happy to finally have a full day of nice weather that, even without Jessa, I figured I could work, clear some of the backlog the wet […]

Checked your trees today?

Well, they’re here – spongy ldd gypsy moth caterpillars are up in the leaves eating as of this week. Jessa and I are a little annoyed that they have reached the leaves before we managed to get everyone that wanted a spray for them done – darn rain!! We’ve been able to do a few […]

New for 22

Did you see our newsletter? If not, it may have ended up in your spam folder, or under promotions. It’s not spam though, honest!! I only do one email newsletter a year (if that)! So if you didn’t get it, you can, by clicking on this link right here. There’s a link at the bottom […]

Quick fly by

Yep, we’re up and running, albeit in a Ross-less way … he’s still around and occasionally even answers the phone, and he’s telling us all what to do and how to do it, but not going out on calls these days. As you probably know, the weather has been particularly not cooperative … not rain […]

More questions & answers

So, if Ross is retired, who is taking over? Many of you will have met Matt last season – he’s still with us, and in the long run, the hope is that he’ll take over all aspects of the business so that I can retire too. But we’re not quite there yet, so hi … […]

Welcome Back

we’re still here, and looking forward to providing you with environmentally responsible pest control when you need.

Such a fun time …

So … business is challenging this year – and then some! Ross injured himself falling off a ladder and is feeling his age these days …. finding out the hard way that the older you are, the longer it takes to heal. The plan is for Matt to take over – but that is complicated […]

Ants and mice and critters, oh my!

It’s a very odd year. Still the normal stuff for this time of year – spider sprays and carpenter ants, mostly. A LOT of carpenter ants. But we are also still getting so many calls for other pests – pests that aren’t usually a problem until fall. Mice are the biggest; we have had about […]
