Call a Pro… Call the Best. ProBest!
Tagxedo turns words — famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, even your love letters — into a visually stunning word cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.
This is what our ProBest homepage looks like and it looks like Professionals is right at the top.
They are taking down the booths and all the exhibits and they are shipping them back to corporate headquarters and the folks are heading home, so was it any fun?
I always have fun when I’m at a bug conference, I enjoy meeting or seeing people I haven’t seen in awhile. I love attending the classes on leadership, marketing and of course new bug stuff. But again I love seeing my ole friends and share the tales of the bug issues we faced since last year. This year my task was to meet up with the people that either read my blog or share FaceBook stuff or maybe people that ask questions.
FaceBook has opened the world or maybe a better explantion is that it has made the world smaller. I get asked questions about how we do business in the U.S. and get asked questions about the different types of bugs etc.
Maybe we can all learn something here about the pest industry and world issues. maybe we can all get along and quit complaining about things. Anyway to all my friends that I got to see this last week and the others who couldn’t make it to Phoenix for “PestWorld 2013″ thanks for the fun and maybe next year we will see you in Orlando, FL. Here are a few pictures I took of all the fun.
No matter where you you live, OK maybe not Alaska but you probably will encounter termites. In Florida and the east Coast chances are that you might find them in the early Spring – sometime near March and April depending on temperatures and weather. In Louisiana it might be different depending on the type of termite and in Arizona our main push of termites is usually after monsoon and the rains, August – November give or take.
This picture above is typical of our Western Subterranean termites, they will find their way up into a wall and then sometimes make a little hole and mud it up or they will make down tubes. But anyway you look at it, this is what you are looking for.
My recommendations for your home and a termite inspection:
- You can look yourself, since you’re on my blog – type in termites to see what it looks like.
- Normally you can get a free inspection, unless it’s for a sale of a home or business.
- When your doing housework, glance around for anything you haven’t noticed before.
- Looks for mud tubes on the foundation of your home, garages are an excellent place for termites – look at expansion joint.
- You can always call ProBest for our opinion, you can send photo’s to firstname.lastname@example.org
Petrified Forest National Park
Just for the record the trees are not standing up, they are petrified (you know who you are). Petrified Forest National Park is the only national park unit to protect a section of Historic Route 66! Animal life at Petrified Forest includes amphibians, birds, insects, spiders, mammals, and reptiles. Over sixteen varieties of lizards and snakes make Petrified Forest their home.
