The good old days

Well, it was almost like the good old days. One out of our typical area call, and we actually managed to get it all done pretty much as planned – so better, mostly – than some of the days we’ve had in previous years. Yesterday was the first day of this year that we’ve had […]

And….we’re off….

Not off as in on holiday, but off as in we are getting a pretty full on stream of calls finally. Slow start to this season – not a bad thing, actually. Full days, but not packed & running full tilt is clearly better for old guys. Not that Ross is getting old, or anything! […]

Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me!

They are dark grey, with black and silver (non-metallic) checkered stomachs. You can tell them apart […]

Spider Sprays

Well, one way that this spring is different already is that we are getting calls about spraying homes and cottages for spiders much sooner than usual. Still a little early to start spraying, but certainly happy to provide estimates and add you to our list of places to be done when conditions are right. Even […]
