Antacpest to donate $25 to school per family that signs up for pest control service by June 1st, 2015

Antac Pest Control, has recently offered to donate $25 for each new customer that signs up for or switches over to Antac’s annual maintenance program. This would apply to new customers only that sign up by June 1st, 2015. The new customer would need to mention the beneficiary school’s name when calling to sign up

If your school has approximately 100 families sign up, this could mean $2,500 that could be used towards new books, new technology, art and music programs, etc. Just imagine if 400 families signed up!

Antac services is all over San Diego County, so if you have a relative living outside of our school district but within San Diego County, they could still call and mention your school’s name when signing up. Your school will still get the $25 credit. I’ve attached a flyer that you could send out to your students via email, Peachjar, or post to your school website or e-news… You could encourage your student body to share it on social media as well.

Please let us know if this is something you would like to do for fundraising this spring. Also feel free to pass this opportunity along to other friends, school foundations and school districts within San Diego County – if you happen to know of others that might be able to benefit from a fundraiser like this.

Can Rats Get into Your Top Floor Home?

You live at the top floor of an apartment. There’s no way pests can reach you now, right? Wrong. So how can rodents get on your floor when you’re so far off from the ground? The answer is simpler than what most people would think.

A rat’s nose is an incredibly sensitive organ. Every object, every surface, every breath of air contains different smells for a rat. Couple that with the ability to smell food from long distances and enter properties through very small holes or cracks, and you start to understand how futile it can be to completely protect your home from these pesky critters.

The Role of Pest Control in Protecting the Bees

The pest control industry as a whole is trying to be careful how it affects the global bee population. Honeybees, in particular, saw their numbers decline by as much as 50 percent. In 2013, some U.S. beekeepers saw 60 percent of their hives disappear. Couple in the blow suffered by other bee types, and the numbers can be downright shocking. Thus, utmost care must be observed when removing them to prevent further loss. Continue reading →

Covering Bases before Making the Offer

Real estate can be a good investment if you have ample funds to acquire a number of properties. You can then convert them for lease and earn some income out of them. If you have some wooden structures in your list of properties, however, termites are never far behind. As such, a termite inspection through an established San Diego company is needed to determine a property’s viability.

Red Flags

A check of the property with a preferred termite inspector will help yield enough information for an educated decision whether or not to buy. One strategy to carry out will be to assess all wooden structures in contact with the ground for anything that seems like ripped edges—for example, a wooden pillar with a concrete base.

Do You Have a Clothes Moth Problem?

During your last tour of spring cleaning duty, you may have gotten around to clearing your attic or basement of things you should have washed or sanitized weeks ago. Maybe it’s those cashmere sweaters and other knit or woolen clothes worn last winter that you never got around to laundering. Perhaps it’s that rug that your naughty dog soiled or your baby had a potty accident on, and you’ve always put off taking it for carpet stain removal.

While checking these items, keep an eye out for holes in them. Be on the lookout for tiny eggs, larvae, or flying critters on the fabrics or on the crevices of your wardrobes and drawers. If you see any of these signs, you may have a clothes moth problem on your hands. Continue reading →
