35th Anniversary to ProBest Pest Management.

    1981 -2016            Happy Anniversary

Anniversary of ProBest Pest Management – in 1981 Donna and Jerry Probst started ProBest and in 2005 they sold to us. It has been fun and there have been tribulations and a major housing collapse. But that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?

We offer a host of services including Termite post construction, termite inspections and the occasional pretreat. We also offer pest control, from ants to scorpions and rodent control. we also offer weed control including pre-emergents and the elimination of the weeds.

We are here to lend you a hand on pest control, many people say well we can do that? Many start out doing a good job and then fail to adequately identify the insect or forget to make it a monthly event. We are the experts and we have on staff a Associate Certified Entomologist who can identify that pests.

Tumbleweed versus Wild West


Not a tumbleweed but a cactus

Do you remember watching those wild west cowboy movies and watching those tumbleweeds aka Russian Thistle? Not everything is a cactus in Arizona.

They aren’t native to Arizona and probably were brought in from Asia with the pioneers.

The picture above is that tumbleweed but in its green and growing stage. When they die, they turn brown and wither but there is a secret you may not know about. That tumble thing they do, its really about spreading their seeds about 100,000 per plant. The old dead tumbleweed blows around with the help of the wind, spreading their kind to the four corners of Arizona – OK every corner of Arizona not just Four Corners (if you understand this reference post a comment) lets see how quick you folks are? On a serious note after the weeds life comes to an end, it becomes extremely brittle and become a target for any brush fires.

I love this quote…

Everything will be alright in the end, and if not – its not the end.

I’m telling you I absolutely love my job! Yes there are trials and tribulations as in any business but to me everyday is different from the one before. No boredom at all and everyday I get to meet new and exciting people.

Now I will admit my writing abilities are not the greatest, but the one thing I’m actually really great at is bugs. So for no other reason than that you should choose ProBest Pest Management to be your bug expert.
