Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
Sears, the iconic department store and grandfather of Craftsman Tools, revitalizes downtrodden, malfunctioning, and otherwise jankey indoor and outdoor appliances at its in-house service center. Versed in repair techniques for all brands, experienced technicians delve into the inner-workings of their customers' gadgets to replace broken parts, clean out gunk, and reattach dryer doors ripped off by pet robots for whom no amount of attention ever seems to be enough. In the storehouse, thousands of parts titter nervously, awaiting a new appliance home, and when a necessary part is out of stock, staff members order it direct from the manufacturer free of shipping charges.
Annoyed by bites and wary of diseases carried by mosquitoes and ticks, Mosquito Squad spritzes its signature barrier spray over more than 20 states. Technicians protect home acreage with an EPA-registered spray that kills adult mosquitoes and ticks using synthetic chemicals that mimic a compound found in chrysanthemums. They take care to avoid blossoms and harming helpful bugs such as honeybees and sentient Volkswagen Beetles. As an alternative, staffers can use an all-natural spray, whose scent confuses and repels pests for about two weeks. Mosquito Squad also can equip yards with remote-controlled automatic misting systems and spray lawns in municipal places before outdoor events.
The Mosquito Man exiles pesky mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas from yards to maximize relaxation outside. A specialist dons a backpack fogging system and unleashes a torrent of spray on at-risk areas, which will exterminate adult 'skeeters upon impact over the course of 20–40 minutes. After a 30-minute dry time and a 5-minute eulogy, the yard is once again frolic ready for pets, children, and guests without lingering hints of odor or residue. The treatment lasts for 21 days with a guarantee, ensuring biting bugs stay away from outside functions, backyard soirees, and grass-eating contests.
Outdoor parties, weddings, and Slip-'N-Slide-athons are the bread pudding and butter beans of summer, but a sunny game of badminton can turn bloody when a swarm of mosquitoes shows up uninvited. Mosquito Squad uses a specially formulated fog to kill adult mosquitoes on contact, as well as killing mosquitoes that land on greenery afterward. Spraying sessions last roughly 15 minutes, and people and pets can return to the treated areas just 30 minutes after the fogging—which effectively reduces the mosquito population in that area by about 90–95%. Mosquitoes are thereby banned from the premises for 21 days, after which you will need to bring on the fog again should you wish to remain unbitten. Alternatively, you can choose an all-natural solution that repels insects by offending their delicate scent palates. Humans detect a mild odor from this treatment that fades after two hours but can be purchased as a bottled fragrance by those who miss it. The synthetic-free repellent is biodegradable and lasts 14 days.
