Nothing like a small January thaw to wake up a few Lady Beetles. We hit a balmy 35*F here in Kenosha, WI and boom! Lady Beetle calls from clients who have not seen them in years. Clearly not from outside, they have been hiding in the walls since last fall. If bad enough, we can help suppress the problem till spring. Minor issues are easiest to control with a vacuum cleaner.
I know where they hide and in many cases can eliminate most activity right away. I then can set you up with a preventive program that does not require a maintenance contract.
So far this year has been a normal winter. almost bitter cold, yet no where near cold enough to kill off our pest populations. we need -25°F or colder. Even bed bugs will not die in the temps we have seen so far.
Mice are still looking for some place warm. Proper pest proofing not only keeps mice and insects out. It will keep the heat in.
Bed bug calls are starting to pick up. This is right on schedule. Most calls are from home owners who have tried professional products they purchased on line. It is not only what you use, but also what you know.
I inspected and treated over 5800 beds in 2014!
We are also booking our April and May spring perimeter protection services. If done early enough, we can avoid pest entering the interior of your home or business.
WOW! What a year!
2014 had quite the strange weather. Winter seamed to last forever, spring squeezed out most of summer, fall was rather pleasant and then November! COLD! Mice came indoors in a fury. Was looking like we were going to have a white Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Weather moderated in December. Much better than the Farmers Almanac predictions.
The Holidays have brought in many bugs and critters.
Bed Bugs were very active after Halloween and through November. There has been a slight slowdown in calls during December. You may think, good. Think again. More likely people are holding off treatment so they can afford Christmas gifts. What does this mean for you?
No, not the mother in-law you subconsciously forgot to send an invite to.
You know the drill. You have company come over. Way more coats than closet space. On the beds they go! Who knew cousin Joe attending UW Where ever has bed bugs in their dorms. How about uncle Bill who just came back from a ten day tropical cruise. And you thought he forgot you? Not even a cheesy T Shirt.
Didn't have guest over this year? Safe? Not so fast.
You put your nice warm coat on crazy aunt Hazels bed.
Are you sure the carry on bins were free of bed bugs? How about that hotel you stayed in? Did you check the bed? How about behind the head board? Oh Oh! Missed that one.
