Some of the coolest and most intriguing stuff out in nature is awfully small and I noticed this small little spider while hiking in New Mexico. I don’t kill everything I see when it comes to bugs, only if they get into your home do I take it personally.

My point is this, while in nature or the great outdoors everything has its place. So take a moment and get into nature and call us 480-831-9328 if you find the creepy crawlies in your home.

The Plague rears its ugly head in Flagstaff area.

From time to time the Plague comes to the front of the news, we occasionally have the Plague at the 4 corners area of Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. Recent testing in Coconino County in Northern Arizona, tested positive on prairie dogs in the Doney Park area.

Fleas in Flagstaff test positive for plague

 

We generally don’t have fleas in Phoenix, I think mainly due to lack of humidity. Flagstaff is at a higher altitude and has greater humidity levels.

 

 

New Mexico Pest Management Continuing Education Tour

What’s a tech to do; everybody is seeing Bed Bugs…
 Delusional Parasitosis!

Yours truly was asked to participate again with the New Mexico Pest Management continuing education tour, this event is held each year and are held in Las Cruces, Roswell and Albuquerque. I really enjoy this event and have asked over the years for a spot in the program. I started attending this event probably 10 years ago and had the opportunity to speak and I love the crowd and the electricity that flows from the participants.

One of the things I like most about the event is that I focus on items that a technician can relate to, most have seen the biology and control aspects of the bugs unless they are new to the pest industry. So I focus on what they can do to help their customers and themselves, stay tuned and maybe I’ll have some pictures of this event.
