The biggest issue I have with DIY (Do It Yourself) pest control is that most people don’t understand bugs. If you have the knowledge then you can deal with the pest. Same reason I don’t replace my own brakes on my vehicle. I don’t have a clue and frankly I don’t want to know. But let me tell you, I know bugs.
You know those cockroach stations that you just throw into the kitchen or bathroom cabinet, they might work if you get them close enough. But most people just toss them into the cabinet and that isn’t very helpful. Yes some roaches will find the stuff but if you place them near the source, it will work better.
So how would you control these roaches if the bait wasn’t close by, it’s far easier to just call a Pest Management Professional. 480-831-9328
Soapbox Alert —– Soapbox Alert
One of the hardest things that I run across when dealing with termites in the garage are built in shelves. The problem is their location in regards to the expansion joint. Now I agree where else would you build the shelves, certainly not the center of the garage – that would be impractical. Here is my suggestion – don’t secure the bottom shelf. This would allow us the option of removing that shelf and drilling our necessary holes to prevent termites.
One of the calls I get this time of year concerns this little fellow above, the Crane Fly. It looks like a mosquito on steroids and are in the same Order Diptera (= two wings) as mosquitoes. Crane Flies are found throughout the world, in Arizona generally right after the Spring rains we see them and then all of a sudden they are gone (usually living only 10 – 15 days). The larvae are found near water and eat organic materials and become food for fish and other small insects.
Just after emerging from her pupa case she seeks out a male, mates and lays eggs in moist soil. So hang in there they won’t be around long. Oh I almost forgot they don’t bite so no worries.
I recently found the Twitter site – @Uberfacts and on FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/UberFacts
They listed a few facts that are amazing – There are 14 billion insects for every human on Earth. That equals 980,000,000,000,000,000,000 total on the planet. So if you are concerned about a few how about calling ProBest Pest Management 480-831-9328
Cameron Trading Post
Part of my tour for my family and friends includes a visit to the Grand Canyon and the path to the South Rim goes right by this unique little place. The Historic Cameron Trading Post – For nearly a century the Cameron Trading Post has been a Grand Canyon lodging haven for travelers, traders, vacationers and explorers who come from all points of the globe. The Cameron Trading Post is more than an Indian lodge or Grand Canyon hotel. Established in 1916, the Cameron Indian Trading Post has become a showplace for fine Native American art and Southwest art. Now I will admit if you plan your trip just right – lunch is the thing to do. **** Caution – look around before order – the Indian taco (that is what they call it) is huge. Maybe you can share one but it is worth it – TRUST ME ON THIS!
Another tip from an experienced tourist – set by the window in the back, because you never know what you might see. Birds, lizards and maybe more.
