And it’s summer!!

Let the – power outages? – begin. Seems like that’s the order of the day/week around here. There are signs at both ends of our road telling us the power will be out from the 26th to the 28th – but ~only~ from 8:30 to 4:00 pm. How very convenient – NOT!!! We will be […]

And we’re back

Had a great time at NoFishIn Lake, as Ross has taken to calling Lake Nosbonsing, where we were. Disappointed in his quest for walleye yet again! Didn’t see much of anything worth keeping, actually. The only fish that made it to the very nicely outfitted cleaning shack at Birch Hill Camp was a nice-sized bass […]

Yep, we’re back :)

Wouldn’t know it though, given how slow I’ve been responding to calls and stuff this weekend. My apologies!! But one day old baby beats carpenter ants any day of the week! My nephew had his first, so no sooner got back from Havelock than I was in the car again to go meet him. In […]

And we’re off…. and running, that is

I finished work Friday – well, aside from dealing with ~I don’t like my mark~ emails! It’s like y’all knew that – today has been hopping with lots of little-critter issues – and even better (depending on one’s perspective), the rest of the week is starting to fill up as well. Works for me – […]

Gone Fishing

The boat finally made it into the water! Haven’t got much use out of it since – out for a bit with the grandkids, and then yesterday we managed a day off to go fishing. One of us caught some very nice bass 🙂 And one of us caught some ….well, they would have made […]

Mouse in the house? Bats in the Belfry? Spiders in the Shower?

In our neck of the woods pests are INEVITABLE especially when you don’t live here all year round.  There are two ways people deal with this problem – WHEN it happens – or BEFORE it happens. What do WHEN it happens – bees, wasps, shadflies, bed bugs, fleas, spiders, mice, bats or ants – what […]

31-July

Looking for pest control help today? Please consider emailing us at ccpestcontrol@gmail.com or using the quote form rather than calling; I’ve got class this morning, then heading to Brampton for lunch with my mom, and Ross will be out solving people’s pest problems all day…so no one around to handle the phones. I will respond […]

Weekends

It’s a sunny Saturday morning and Ross just left to head up to a carpenter ant job in Honey Harbour…then he’ll come back through and head to the other side of our region, over to Tiny Township. And yes, it is a lovely sunny Saturday and we do have family coming for a visit and the […]

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated pest management is something that a lot of pest control companies use in their daily operations, however not everyone is aware of what it is, so I want to explain it a bit so you can get an understanding of it and how it can benefit you.   IPM is an effective and environmentally responsible […]

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are a rather large species of ant (they are generally about .25 to 1 inch) and are indigenous to many parts of the world. They are a particular problem in this area of Ontario – with Balm Beach being the clear leader in our service area.   They reside both indoors and outdoors […]
