Termites in Ontario

Did you think termites where a southern US problem? Or a US problem, at least? They are, of course. But guess what? Termites are not limited to the US. Or even to southern parts of Ontario. We have termites, too. And it stands to reason that we will have more. Winter weather – deep freezing […]

2023 is almost over!

And personally, I’m good with that! 2023 wasn’t all bad – but wow, the last few months have been a drag!! First pneumonia, then a broken wrist – sure doesn’t make this pest control stuff easy. Fortunately, this time of year is pretty slow. Rats, mice, unidentified furry objects (UFOs – most of which turn […]

Got mice? Or rats?

This would be the season – rats and mice don’t mind living outdoors when it’s nice out. It’s now, when the weather is starting to cool off, that they start looking for nice warm places to hang out for the winter. You do not want your place to be one of those winter refuges! Prevention […]

And another summer’s in the books….

And what a busy summer it was! Kept trying to keep things reasonable – work weekends only (& do the skitter sprays during the week) BUT it just never seems to work out that way. Thinking that next summer I might just skip the whole teaching thing and focus on pest control full time. Partly […]

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 […]

Great weather for pest control…

Not so great for pest control companies! This year has been a real challenge. Lots & Lots of people want outside sprays … some people to keep their home &/ cottage looking nice and clean and free of webs and some because the only good spider is most definitely a dead spider. But with the […]

Spring is coming

Really it is!! I sure will be happy when the ice on the lake breaks up and I can get my kayak out! Not teaching this summer, nor working at the group home (long story there!) so unless something changes, will be here most of the time to take people’s calls. Well, when I’m not […]

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 […]

Not just killing things

I joke sometimes that Ross kills things; I do everything else – but the truth is that a lot of what he does as an exterminator – especially one that believes strongly in Integrated Pest Management (IPM)¬†who has been green since long before it became a ~thing~ – a lot of what Ross actually does […]

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 […]
