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 – 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.

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.
Well it turns out to be Vietnam, and this find along with a few others doubles the number of known stick species. The Phryganistria heusii yentuensis measures 32 cm and 54 cm if its legs are extended. OK I’m going to do some math for you, I really looked it up online but 54 cm is 1 foot 9 inches. That is one awfully big stick insect…
Stick insects really don’t do any damage, they can from time to time get into homes. This can cause distress for some people, freaking them out. I have seen grown men waffle at the sight of a cockroach and scorpion. This one guy had forgotten to keep his toilet bowl filled with water and there were numerous American Roaches in the toilet and bathroom. At first I couldn’t decide how to treat, I decided to just grab and crush and he went running. I myself cannot stand spiders and doesn’t really matter what type, they are all gross.
Bed Bug job – Day 3, Invader Pest Management & ProBest Pest Management
One of the rules in any any Bed Bug treatment is the follow-up, how do you known if the job was successful? One of the simplest ways is by asking if anyone is being bitten? This doesn’t always work because some people respond differently to Bed Bug bites, so ProBest Pest management installed some Verifi™ (Monitoring and Detection) devices within the home. These units have a 3 fold way of attracting Bed Bugs:
Verifi Co2 Booster Pack – Carbon Dioxide – something we breath out and the Bed Bugs are attracted to.
Pheromone lure – encourages Bed Bugs to gather and aggregate into a harborage area.
Kairomone lure – this device is used to mimic a blood source meal, that’s us.
SUCCESS – SUCCESS – SUCCESS – SUCCESS

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.
Check all out building for pests, like bees or termites.
Check the eaves of your home for bees and cracks in which bugs hide.
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.
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.
Use a cobweb broom to knock down interior dust webs.
