Oopsie!

So I was showing someone our site today and noticed that I hadn’t updated since last October. My bad!! Let’s not mention that to Ross, k? Funny thing is though, that even though I haven’t been doing much (okay, anything at all) he’s still had probably the busiest winter yet. Bedbugs, roaches and mice, oh […]

Happy Canada Day

Hope you all have a safe and happy long weekend wherever you happen to be. From calls so far it sounds like a lot of people are going to be at the cottage all this week. Ross’ calendar is already starting to fill up, so if you do happen to run into pest problems that you’ll […]

Carpenter ants!

My goodness, have we ever become inundated with carpenter ants. We are getting SO many calls from throughout Tay and Tiny Townships. They started early this year, and so many of them, we’ve been having a hard time keeping enough product in stock to treat them. Could be worse though – from what I’ve been […]

It doesn’t change the  fact that, unless you are feeding them for twopence in downtown London (like in “Mary Poppins”), those are definitely not creatures that you would want around. Pigeons are persistent birds and will take over areas by covering them with their  waste, destroying whole […]

Birds: Damage

Any type of bird can become a pest–it just depends on their behaviour and activity on your property. You can read the past post on birds and the post on birds and diseases. Some of the major concerns when it comes to birds as pests is Canadian geese and their droppings and smaller birds building […]

Birds

Today’s post will be the first of many about birds-why they are problems, the diseases caused by birds, spotting a bird problem/damage and control methods.   Birds can be great to have around, because most species will eat insects and bugs that can be a nuisance to you and your home. However, birds can easily […]

Birds

Birds can be pretty to look at and they can be useful as a natural pest control, but they do have their downsides as well. Not only can birds cause damage to property they can also transmit diseases to humans–not so nice, right? You can read about birds here You can read about birds and […]
