Quick fly by

Yep, we’re up and running, albeit in a Ross-less way … he’s still around and occasionally even answers the phone, and he’s telling us all what to do and how to do it, but not going out on calls these days. As you probably know, the weather has been particularly not cooperative … not rain […]

More questions & answers

So, if Ross is retired, who is taking over? Many of you will have met Matt last season – he’s still with us, and in the long run, the hope is that he’ll take over all aspects of the business so that I can retire too. But we’re not quite there yet, so hi … […]

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, […]

It’s Cottage Week!

For us, I mean. Even though we basically live in a cottage anyway, we still look forward to going away to another. Since pest control is SO seasonal – except for mice and bedbugs – we don’t really get ALL that much time to enjoy it. And going away is better because we don’t go […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 – […]

Busy busy

Ross is having a very busy day today! We’re off this weekend – going to nephew’s wedding in Alliston for a couple of days, then to our friends’ cottage for one night (yes we live in a cottage in cottage country, but it’s different going to someone else’s 🙂 ) and then back in time for […]

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 […]

Rainy days & spider sprays

Darn rain!!! Got Ross’ calendar filled and then some – and the bleeping rain just messed that all up. Truth is that it doesn’t actually have to bring everything to a standstill; rain doesn’t actually wash the product we use away once it’s set (about 20 minutes) …. so he COULD still spray and as […]
