It’s not always about the Scorpions, how about visiting Arizona? Cameron Trading Post

Cameron Trading Post

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.

PHILADELPHIA – Seven pest management professionals are D.C.-bound after being chosen to win a free trip to NPMA’s Legislative Day 2014, courtesy of FMC Corporation. Entries were collected online and during PestWorld 2013 in Phoenix, with the winners drawn randomly at PestWorld by NPMA Executive Vice President Bob Rosenberg. The winners will receive airfare, registration and a two-night hotel stay. They are:
•    Rodney Allman, Envirosafe, Belmont, NC
•    Keith Birkemeyer, ProBest Pest Management, Gilbert, AZ
•    Dan Bradbury, Viking Pest Control, Bound Brook, NJ 
•    Roger Graham, Arrow Exterminators, Broken Arrow, OK
•    Doug Lardner, Doug the Bug Termite & Pest Control, Clearwater, FL
•    Tim Leatherman, Perfect Pest Control, Union, KY 
•    Lawrence Plecha, Biotec of NM Inc., Albuquerque, NM

“There is no better way to support our industry than to attend Legislative Day,” said Bethwyn Todd, FMC. “We congratulate the winners and look forward to joining them in D.C., as we work together to address the issues impacting pest management professionals.”

NPMA’s Legislative Day provides an annual opportunity for pest management professionals to speak to federal lawmakers on the issues affecting the industry. According to NPMA, many lawmakers presiding over committees that directly affect pest management are new to Congress so next year’s event will provide a great opportunity to forge new relationships and influence future legislation. In 2013, more than 400 pest management professionals attended. Legislative Day 2014 will be held March 9-11, 2014 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

It’s not always about the Scorpions, how about visiting Arizona? South Mountain, Phoenix, AZ

South Mountain, Phoenix, AZ

At more than 16,000 acres, South Mountain Park/Preserve is the largest municipal park in the country, according to the Trust for Public Land. It boasts 51 miles of primary trails for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking for all ability levels. The history of South Mountain Park/Preserve as a city park dates back to 1924. Prominent local citizens, with the help of Sen. Carl Hayden, bought 13,000 acres from the federal government for $17,000. In 1935 the National Park Service developed a master plan for the park with riding and hiking trails, picnic areas and overlooks, all in rustic regional character. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built many of the facilities in the park, based on this master plan.

One of my favorite things to do when I have guests coming into town is to pick them up from Sky Harbor airport and have lunch at the top of South Mountain. Lizards a plenty and sometimes tarantula’s and if your really lucky maybe some wildlife including ground squirrels.

Yep, those cockroaches learn another trick to stay alive!

 

Most of us learned in our early years that cockroaches would survive a nuclear attack, I know its hard to believe but they have adapted well to us and our ways.

Well it appears that they have learned to avoid some of the sweet baits, which we (Pest Industry) may be using. “Wily Cockroaches Find Another Survival Trick: Laying Off the Sweets” By James Gorman – The New York Times – Science section.

One thing I didn’t notice with the research was that in certain time periods cockroaches prefer different food like proteins and will readily avoid anything sweet. So I think the research will continue and will continue to offer us new products to keep roaches at bay.
 

 

Pride and Professionalism

Public Health and you

While underestimated, the pest control industry plays a vital role in protecting health and property. Pest control professionals are truly everyday heroes!
