Carpet Tack

Carpet Tack is usually reserved for carpet, however I recently saw something unique in bird avoidance. By the way as you can see it isn’t working. It was a good try but the nails are not long enough to persuade the birds from landing. Also these are probably sparrows, not pigeons so it really needs to be bird spike. The technique of bird spikes is that they prevent the birds from landing, hence bird deterrent.

Leave it to the professionals when it comes to the outside of your home, we have been providing excellent work for almost 40 years. We have all the tools necessary to plan and carry out the work. I have experimented with many things, especially when it comes to woodpeckers. So call us and at least get an estimate before you attempt this on your own. Often times it may be less expensive and it will diffidently look better. Call 623-414-0176 or 480-831-9328 for a free estimate, save yourself the hassle.

Kitchen tubes

Kitchen tubes termites

Kitchen tubes and termites, always a freaky thing to discover. This was of course unusual and of course there was a shower bathtub on the other side. This makes it difficult to treat, almost making it impossible to get to the bath-trap. Maybe the possibility of angle drilling, but whoa pipes in the way.

Checking your home monthly for signs of termite tubes is helpful in determining an active infestation. Check for signs outside at the foundation and check inside for any signs of soil/dirt tubes and stains. In Arizona termites become more active after monsoon and the rains. This year we have had a lot of rain, so keep an eye out for signs.

 

How do you know the problem is huge – when the cockroaches are everywhere?

The very minute you walk into the home, you know there are issues. How does the bug guy know? Let me share my observations:

  1. The cockroaches are in the door hinges or above the entry door into the home.
  2. The cockroaches are in the bedrooms.
  3. The cockroaches are in the living or dining rooms.
  4. The home has a distinct odor. Once you have been in a home with a severe cockroach problem you never forget that smell. The same applies to Bed Bugs and sometimes rats or rodents.

Did you know that a  smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people’s moods and even affect their work performance. Maybe walking into a house where someone is baking cookies and you instantly recall your Grandmother in the kitchen or if your a pest operator walking into a place where the roaches far outnumber any other living things. Gives you the heebie jeebies right?

Tell me your instant recall of a smell you have encountered, maybe I’ll share a few more.
