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 […]

BZZZZZ!

What? Too early?! I’m already thinking about mosquitoes, ticks, spiders and all that fun stuff – aren’t you? Ok, well, I suppose it is a ~bit~ early. But I’m picking up my new-to-me car tomorrow and I’ve been thinking about what I want the wrap design to say. I’m thinking to focus on things we […]

Winter is on its way

Personally, I do not approve. Especially this year, when the garage is so full there isn’t any room for my poor car. It is going to have to stay out in the driveway and be cold and covered with yuck! Hopefully we’ll get it sorted by the time I have to start driving in to […]

Welcome Back

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

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 […]

Weather watch

So much unpredictability this season! The weather is not cooperating! Or perhaps more accurately, the weatherman is not cooperating. IT would be ever so much easier to plan the guys’ days if we could believe whatever the weather people posted. Supposed to rain but it doesn’t; not supposed to, but it does. And always, always, […]

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! […]

And so it begins…

Even though I have yet to send my annual email  (my bad – BUT I got through a condensed semester with all my marks done & submitted early AND got my gall bladder out last week, so…. yeah… )  I’ll get there! But it was a beautiful day and a whole bunch of people decided […]

Mites

Well, it is officially summer! With that comes sunshine, kayaking, fishing, fun … and pests, pests, pests! If you happen to be a pet-owner, (anything from birds to rats to cats and  dogs), a potential problem you should watch for is … infestation by  mites! Mites are arachnids (they have FOUR pairs of legs and […]

Invasion Of The Carpenter Ants ! Eeeep!

If you live in cottage country ( as in Simcoe County, Tay or Tiny Townships, or Muskoka), trees and forests are never too far away, and you are likely not a stranger to a myriad of types of pests. This also means that you are very likely to encounter the the six legs, smooth/round upper […]
