Arizona Pest Control Company's insured and certified technicians have been marching into battle against multilegged opponents since 1947. In their 67 years of service, they have evolved the knowledge and weaponry necessary for evicting bugs, birds, and rodents from both residential and commercial abodes. As they scour homes for signs of unwanted guests, they implement up-to-date technology to both banish and bar pests from the premises.
With eco-friendly bee traps, which lack the pesticides that affect other native animals, the staff can settle long-standing debates over whether that buzzing noise was in your mind all along. Antitermite warranties and treatments keep wooden foundations standing firm, and highly educated bird-control personnel clear out feathery nuisances. Technicians can schedule recurring appointments as well as report for emergency services 24 hours a day.
Right off Madeira Beach's pristine, sandy shores, Barefoot Beach Hotel houses guests in swank suites, some of which overlook the Gulf of Mexico. White sand stretches from the hotel to the water so that guests can make their way to the waves without walking atop long stretches of foot-searing cement or mastering the art of levitation. Boat owners, meanwhile, can jaunt quickly across the street to rent a slip for their seafaring vessels. After a long day of lazing in the sun or swimming in the onsite outdoor pool, guests can use the in-room kitchenettes—replete with dishware, microwaves, and mini fridges—to prepare a pleasant end-of-the-day meal.
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
The pest police at Bug & Weed Mart outfit beleaguered homeowners with the necessary tools to beat back incursions of insects, rodents, and weeds. A regimen of Maxforce Professional Ant Bait ($23.99) removes pesky crumb-snatchers while keeping pets safe, and Gentrol Roach/Bedbug Sterilant does away with nocturnal ne'er-do-wells ($12.99). The Spray Doc Professional Pump Sprayer ($36) conjures up an anti-weed spell through its brass wand and nozzle, teleporting encroaching foliage to an extradimensional plant jail. No winged intruder goes unpunished with the Maxforce Professional Fly Killer ($14.99). To aid in the ongoing rodent resistance, the staff will provide step-by-step instructions on the proper use of all products, and will grease and clean sprayers free of charge.
A bulwark is defined as a defensive wall, and the skilled technicians at Bulwark Exterminating live up to that name with pest control services that stop unwanted creatures in their tracks. Using primarily outdoor treatments, the team seeks out infestations at the source, thus preventing them from invading the home. If they do make it in, however, Bulwark administers interior treatments to finish the job without trying to deter pests using "Beware of Dog" signs.
