Meeses in the house

Meeses in the house

Meeses, OK I know the plural of mouse is mice, not meese but just had to mess with things. Plus coming up with keywords is difficult as there are only so many to choose from. Have you ever checked your attic for signs of rodent infestation or signs of other pests. You need to check screening or weep holes, the vents in each end of attic. Check your home for pipe entry points and seal the area around and protrusion. Check door sweeps and maintain window screens. Don’t just check the tops, if you see evidence dig deeper.

Spend It in Gilbert

Spend It in Gilbert

Spend it in Gilbert – When you buy local you help another family within the Gilbert area. When you buy from someone out of state much of that money goes away from our community.

“It’s your money. When you spend it in Gilbert at a local business, what you are really doing is voting for the success of that business, the success of your community, and ultimately the quality of life that you experience every day.“ Support your local economy. It’s Your Money – Spend It In Gilbert!

Shopping local affords a more personal interaction, you may get to know the owner or their technicians. Local also allows a quicker response time to seek out and determine the pest infestation.  Home town pride – invest in Arizona’s economy. For every $100 you spend locally, $43 dollars stay within that community and if your spend $100 non-local only $13 remains in that community.

Invest locally.

I also ran across an article from the “Institute for Local Self Reliance” on Why support locally owned businesses. They give 10 reasons:

  1. Local Character and Prosperity
  2. Community Well-being
  3. Local decision making
  4. Keeping dollars in the local economy
  5. Jobs and wages
  6. Entrepreneurship
  7. Public benefits and costs
  8. Environmental sustainability
  9. Competition
  10. Product diversity

Spring is almost here!

  Spring is almost here!

Spring is almost here, at least in Arizona and soon we will heading to those wonderful 120° temperatures. So the BIG question are you ready for Spring Cleaning? Here are a few tips on preparing for the summer heat ahead of us all.

  1. Check all out building for pests, like bees or termites.
  2. Check the eaves of your home for bees and cracks in which bugs hide.
  3. The Spring is a great time to caulk and seal your home against unwanted pests, it’s cooler and we all know we don’t want to do it in the Summer.
  4. Check for any nesting around the home, rodents and birds use nesting material and will often drag it in through opening in the walls and ceilings.
  5. Use a cobweb broom to knock down interior dust webs.
  6. Trim those trees from against the home.
  7. Never stack firewood or wood against the home.
  8. Clean your carpets.
