Water will find the path of least resistance and often times can cause more and more issues with a home. Let’s imagine that a chimney at the roofline is not sealed correctly and water makes it way to the ground. This water goes through the termiticide and eventually the termiticide is completely gone. The termites gain access into your home and more damage continues. So I would say that this is something we all need to consider when doing a quarterly inspection of our homes.
If you spot a water issue, figure it out and repair it ASAP or if you don’t want to just keep my phone number handy for the termite work that may be coming your way – 480-831-9328.
“An ecological approach to pest management that effectively manages pests in a way that minimizes adverse effects on people and the environment. IPM (integrated pest management) emphasizes an understanding of pest biology and behavior, and employs a number of different strategies designed to reduce the things pests need to survive and reproduce, including food, water, living space, and a way into the building.”

Phoenix is the capital, and largest city, within the state of Arizona. With 1.5 million people, Phoenix is the most populous state capital in the United States, as well as the sixth most populous city nationwide.
Phoenix is surrounded by many smaller little cities and each has a unique and quaint feeling such as Gilbert where my office is located. There are numerous day trip ideas and many are just plain fun in the sun.

Damn BedBugs, they are sneaky and will hide in any hole or crevice. Click on the picture and see if you can find the bedbugs in the hole. What should you look for if you think you have an infestation:
- Red or black spots on bedding material.
- Adult Bedbugs are the size of a apple seed, babies are much smaller and see through.
- Smell of iron (result of blood).
- Don’t just look at the bed check the cracked paint, wallpaper, any crevices in wood or holes in computer desk.
