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 […]

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 […]

Spring!

So happy to look out my window and see water again! So much prettier than ice. All kinds of ducks around, plus a few swans; geese haven’t shown up yet – so it’s about perfect. Ross has started gearing up for another season – ordered his products, cleaned my junk out of his car, all […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spring in Cottage Country!

The lake is open, the ice is gone, and Ross has already started mucking around with pieces of dock. Some of it suffered damage and is going to need quite a bit of repair, apparently.  Trying to get that done before he gets so busy he doesn’t have time to do it. We are already starting to get […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
