In the head

Often times we called out when someone is being bitten by something in the house. You know that creepy feeling when you start thinking about it. Then you obsess about it and then your head explodes. OK I’m kidding about the head exploding, but you know the feeling.

Pocket Gophers

Pocket Gophers

Pocket gophers can be quite the destructive pests, they eat roots and often go unnoticed until the plant is dead. Look for those suspicious dug up soil patterns in the grass or dirt. Females and males share some burrows and nesting areas if their territories border, but in general they tend to hang out in their own tunnels. Even though they can look all cuddly they are still a wild animal and in it for themselves.

Did you know?

  • Breed in early Spring to early Summer.
  • The typical gopher can move approximately 1 ton of soil each year.
  • Not known to carry a significate source of disease.
  • They have often been known to carry external parasites
  • Known Predators—including owls, hawks, snakes, weasels, cats, dogs, and coyotes—eat pocket gophers.

Value exactly what is it?

the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.
“your support is of great value”

So what do you get with most pest control? Is there a value, often times is an unknown because you really can’t see the result or can you? The Pest Company comes out and you may or may not see them do their work. Maybe you used to see 3 scorpions per month and now you see none. Do they talk with you or leave you notes on their service?

Product for mice and rat prevention

Product Repels Mice and Rats

Product PRO-PELL is an all natural repellant made up of essential oils that contain the smells and tastes that rodents hate. The oils bind to the foundation and are not easily washed off. One gallon of finished material covers approx. one 2500sq ft home. Apply to house foundations, sheds, under decks, hatchways, garage door openings and area’s of rodent activity.



How It Works:

Mice sense of smell is 2.5 times greater than a humans. They feel most comfortable when they can run along side walls with their whiskers touching. This puts their nose right next to the foundation which has been sprayed with PRO-PELL. The smell forces the mice to go elsewhere preventing them from entering the structure. After PRO-PELL dries it can’t be smelled by humans but can by mice for up to 60 days.
