Last summer I had a near death experience because of a local pest. Let me explain. I was in my backyard sitting on the edge of our raised flower garden, pulling weeds when I felt something on my toes. I looked down and was horrified to see a snake trying to play... read more
I had arrived at a customer’s house for their regular service and asked if they were having any pest issues. The customer replied, “For the first time, we have mice, and I don’t know why.” I told the customer that while I was treating their exterior, I would... read more
To treat or not to treat…that is the question! We’re not talking about whether to sneak that last piece of pie. We’re talking about that age old question…”Why do I need my winter quarterly pest treatment? Surely everything has died off!” Let us state by saying, if... read more
I’ve been known to break-out in song, and I’ve always had a secret-not-so-secret desire to be a Disney princess but I am no Cinderella. I hate mice! I’d put Lucifer in the same room as Gus and Jaq and happily shut the door. What Cinderella must not have realized is... read more

Let me set up my story as dramatically as I can. The year was 2017, the month was June. I can almost remember this fateful week like it was last week or last month (I can’t remember which). Our sales manager Chris left for the weekend, which left me to tackle all... read more

Elm Seed Bugs are the worst, they really are. They invade by the thousands, smell gross when crushed, and get into everything. Every June or so (at least since 2009) when the weather gets hot, Elm Seed bugs invade Treasure Valley homes en masse. Trying to escape the... read more
Well at first I thought we were going to have to call you back there were so many still around. However the spray and the bomb in the crawl space was beginning to take affect and we still see a few here and there but not like before the application. will see how it is as the weather becomes warmer. Thank you very much.
Your representative was very courteous and did a great job. I have noticed some spider activity since he sprayed. That may only be because it woke them up.
