Entering bugs like scorpions, roaches and whatever else can enter.
Entering termites, scorpions et all. Termites can make their way through the smallest of a crack or hole. Scorpions can enter under a door, or a crack under a window or fireplace. Home-sealing is the absolute best method to keep them out, second to that is pest control and third is black lighting your property frequently.

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.
Gophers and the movie Caddy Shack, see link below. One of my all time favorite comedy hits. I still laugh every time that Gopher dances and makes fun of the landscaper. Now that I do rodent control, it isn’t a laughing matter anymore. These varmints eat roots and new shoots and can be quire destructive. So it is important to keep them at bay and stop them from damaging your lawn and plants. Rats and rodents in general continue to grow their teeth and need a way to keep them useable and sharp. They will gnaw on wires, pool equipment and even your vehicle wiring. That by the way can cost a fortune. We are running an special – give us a call at 480-831-9328 and yes we can gas them out. They won’t go away on their own.
Bait and rodent stations – So something and not the rats have been eating my bait. Here is the bait I use versus an anticoagulant.
Premier Formulation with Vitamin D3
TERAD3 BLOX expertly combines the most recent advancements in bait formulation to yield a highly weatherable BLOX with the benefits of the active ingredient, Vitamin D3.
After years of researching the most effective formulation for housing this unique active ingredient. Bell scientists have found the perfect match – a denser, tightly compacted 1-oz. extruded BLOX with outstanding durability, palatability and weatherability. Incorporating an advanced preservation system, TERAD3 BLOX is mold and moisture resistant. Its high melting point keeps the blox intact in temperatures as high as 200 degrees F.
TERAD3 BLOX with Vitamin D3 kills anticoagulant-resistant rats and mice. With BLOX, bait translocation is also reduced.
Terad3 Blox has a broad label which makes it an excellent choice for controlling rodents. Especially at agricultural facilities, warehousing and food processing plants, as well as for industrial and residential accounts.
Contains the calcium mobilizer, cholecalciferol. Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Keep away from children, domestic animals and pets. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.
Terad 3 is extremely popular because of the reduced risk of secondary poisoning. A pet or predator likes owls or hawks would have to eat a large amount of the actual bait to become very ill. In turn, a pet or predator would have to eat a huge number of rodents that ate a small amount of bait to become ill. Most pets don’t eat dead rodents….they may bring them to your doorstep but most do not consume the carcass. Of course you must do your part and use discretion on where you place the bait for the rodents so it is out of reach of children and pets.
Terad3 causes hypervitaminosis (vitamin poisoning) which in turn causes calcification of the rodents heart, lungs and other important organs which of course leads to death.
Liberty Wildlife We recently moved into a newly built facility and had a few problems with rodents. Due to the nature of our business wildlife care we constantly strive to hatch, protect and raise wildlife. Rather than use bait we use the rodent station with snap traps to stop rodents from entering our buildings and cages and to protect all of our resident’s birds/animals/wildlife. We recently encountered a breech in our building and have sealed it, we then decided to address the numerous holes from rodents on our property. ProBest Pest Management brought to our attention the BurrowRX system and I must say it exceeded our expectations. No residual and no mess, the carbon monoxide kills the rodents and they stay put under the ground. No effect on our animals, wildlife or birds. We absolutely hate having to eliminate the rodents, but this system is humane and free from harmful chemicals or rodenticide secondary poisoning. ProBest Pest Management has always been on the cutting edge of the newest methods in pest/rodent eradication and have done most of the work pro bono over the years because of our status as a non-profit. ProBest has brought us birds that have been hit and helped to move a nesting Barn Owl with eggs. We highly recommend their service, they are top notch and are true Pest Management Professionals and they are QualityPro certified with 2 Associate Certified Entomologist on staff. 2 Talons up for their excellent service since 2011, my Staff and I use them and highly recommend their service. Terry Stevens Director Liberty Wildlife
The BurrowRx system is a unique system for eradicating varmints and rodents. Just insert the tube device into their holes and the carbon monoxide will kill them humanely.
Rat Catcher one of those jobs people don’t do anymore. I must admit, most of those jobs were tough and I wouldn’t want to do them either. The grossest one was used teeth salesperson, yuuuuuck. Times do change thank goodness and new and better jobs will always pop up. It’s like doing Pest Control in Arizona when the temperature is over 115 degrees, I know it’s a dry heat.
So what new jobs will be available, robots will be doing more and more. Fast food employees will be done away with by mechanical systems, taxi drivers eliminate by self driving cars etc. When I was in Seattle at Pestworld a few years ago, they had a GPS self driven device to scare away birds at airports so a Pest technician might be replaced but that’s a long time away I believe.
Clutter in and around your home is an open ended invitation to come hang out if your a pests. Don’t allow cluttered areas because they are ideal in hiding pests including, scorpions, rodents and cockroaches. The ideal yard is free from trash, trees and bushes are away from structure and block walls and water is only on plants and not excessive. Wood is OK as long as it is on some type of raised platform and I would prefer it to not be against a block wall. The wood needs to breath and not hold moisture.
If your not using the wood its better to throw it out. Throw away trash, my theory is if you haven’t touched it in a year throw is out. Watch for cockroaches under garbage cans and don’t allow water to accumulate in containers which might promote mosquitoes. Mow the grass and keep the weeds down – We do weed treatments. 480-831-9328.
BurrowRx underground rodents. Do you have underground rodents (rats and mice), ground squirrels, pocket gophers, gophers, moles or pack rats? We have the solution to their constant burrowing, damaging of plants and holes which people and kids can fall into. Another issue that can occur is that these rodents are prey to rattlesnakes and other more harmful creatures. If they are present it may encourage snakes to wonder into and on your property.
The BurrowRx Rodent Control Device
The BurrowRx Rodent Control Device is classified as a pesticidal device. Secondary kills of nontarget species is not likely when used as directed. When the Carbon Monoxide dissipates there’s no longer a risk to anything entering the burrow system. It uses a smoke tracer to let you know where the carbon monoxide is going. It’s your prescription for any burrowing rodent problem. Carbon Monoxide can be used as an effective approach to control of burrowing rodents. As the Carbon Monoxide enters the burrow system, the rodent breathes it in. The Carbon Monoxide then replaces the oxygen in their blood. And without oxygen, cells in the body die and organs stop working.
Customers with pets love the BurrowRx underground rodents because there is no worry about primary poisoning by digging up poisonous bait, or secondary poisoning from gophers that have previously taken poisoned bait. Data efficacy is very effective at 95% at controlling borrowing ground squirrels.
Direct targeting of rodents within the burrow system.
No reliance on bait acceptance that sometimes hinders rodenticide and trapping efforts.
Our solution eliminates the worry about secondary or unintended kills.
It seldom requires handling of animals after treatment, which reduces the risk of disease and parasite transmittance to humans.
Allows you the customer to see that the technician and product is working.
Our commercial business approach is professional and builds customers’ confidence.
It can be highly efficacious.

Hoarding collecting, clutter, junk, trash or just way to much stuff. The problem with this is often the amount collected. To much often hides other issues like cockroaches and rodents. With filth comes secondary pest infestation, after cockroaches and rodents may come parasites and flies. If you know me at all, flies are the biggest yuck factor.
This disease is known as compulsive hoarding by excessive acquisition (collecting). And an inability or unwillingness to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of the home and cause significant distress or impairment. I’ve only had to deal with once so far, a mobile home packed to the gills and impossible to actually get under control without a significant clean-up.
Who you Gonna Call? ProBest Pest Management 480-831-9328
Need a Professional opinion? Client of yours has a pest issue? A true story from this last week I had a realtor ring me at home at 8:20 am, she had a concern about a relative in a group home and bedbugs. Now here is the best part, I don’t care what you call me as long as you call me. A year or two back I had a Property Manager call on a Sunday. She had tried to reach her pest company and no one would call her back. She called me I answered and took care of the bees that same day a Sunday.
If you know me I don’t mind those concerns as long as they are legit and you’re not trying to sell me something. If you have my card my cell number is on it. Some people say OMG really, yep Really. If you need me I’m available, again legit only and not after 9pm or before 8am unless the rat has you cornered or the honeybees are at your front door trying to get in.
