NEW SERVICE !!
SPUCE BUDWORM SERVICE TO CONTINUE IN May of 2024
Our service evalutaion for 2023 has been very positive. We saw the trees we treated withstand the Budworm onslaught very well. Adjacent trees that were not treated were damaged but treated trees faired well. We will be opening up a second route and training a second crew for 2024 and are currently adding names to the service listing.
Treatment of White Spruce and Balsam Fir will be the continued focus with Blue Spruce on occasion.
Mice population continues to Surge
It appears that the mouse population continues to be high. Our consumption of bait almost tripled this year as evidence of that. We expanded to 5 services over the warm weather in most cases and that, in some instances, was not enough.
Warmer winter temps have a lot to do with mouse survival and we are expecting a warmer winter than usual so spring will see a lot of mice in all likelyhood.
Continuing our NO SEEUM service
We had great success with our No Seeum service in 2022. The application seemed to work well. This is a one time application each year in Spring. Our customers bring the window screens out ahead of time and we spray them. Once dry they put them back in place.
Have a great year
