Beware of Cedar Fever!

Friday, 7 January, 2011

I grew up in Southern California. Everyone jokes about our earthquakes. I always have to re-educate people that earthquakes aren’t a big deal. The real threat in California is the amount of wild fires that occur each year. Occasionally they happen at the worst time when the infamous Santa Ana Winds are blowing. It’s a recipe for disaster.

A twitter acquaintance sent out a friendly reminder this morning regarding those that may be suffering from allergies in the Austin, TX area. The Mountain Cedar tree is to blame for mass amounts of runny noses, excessive sneezing, nasal blockages and irritated eyes. The People Against Cedars offer some extensive insights into the wintertime conditions that plague Central Texas.

Mountain Cedar Tree

Now I know allergies in no way compare to wild fires and earthquakes, and that most areas of the country face some sort of seasonal hazard, but I thought it interesting that one tree can single handily cause such havoc on an entire region of a state.

So as my twitter friend reminds us, if any of your Austin friends are missing in action, they should be resurfacing in a week or two.

Green Pest Control – Green Conference

Friday, 24 April, 2009

“It’s not easy being green…” Kermit the Frog had it wrong. Doing what’s right for the customers, the employees, and the world is EASY. Offering the customers an alternative solution to their pest problems is a good thing. Heck, if you have a customer that’s sensitive to A and B then find C for him, don’t just throw her under the bus. The only thing you should be throwing under the bus is the bugs. If you don’t want that customer then send them our way.  So if you want green, greenier, or the greenest then you let us know and we will figure out what works best for you. 

What’s that? Green Pest Control is still undefined? There are pest control companies “Green Washing” out there?  Hey, don’t judge me based on what company XYZ or ABCD did or said.  Try out the service for yourself.  Call it green if you want, call it purple, pink, or red.  What it comes down to is this, #1-Is the pest control effective? #2- Can I, the customer, rest and breathe easy? and #3… “Are you, the pest control comapny, improving the service?”. 

Yes, we are doing the best we can.  Yes, you can be assured that we are professionals.  And Yes, we are moving forward, improving our service and “getting Greenier.”

Pesticides could be fatal

Thursday, 23 April, 2009

Pesticides could have been fatal for two children. Middle east pest control company being prosecuted for the fatal use of pest control products. There are also 4 other middle east pest control companies being prosecuted for using restricted pesticides. These PCOs and others should be held responsible for breaking the laws. This is a rare case in which the PCO’s actions could have been fatal to humans, but the laws are in place for this reason. Perhaps the EPA is a little more restrictive then many PCOs would like, but the public and responsible pest control companies appreciate the good intention behind pest control regulation. We advise all to consider the possible consequences of their actions and to act responsibly.
