Lawn Doctor’s savvy yard magicians rejuvenate hapless grounds, conjure spells for increased grass growth, and banish nutrition-sapping weeds. Famished foliage is sated with the help of beneficent Turf Tamer equipment that doles out nourishing fertilizer to every inch of greenery. Grass is then meticulously fortified against intruders with a herbicide that, when applied, causes dandelions, crabgrass, and yard yetis to disappear with a cackle into a cloud of smoke. Broad-leaf weed control kills existing weeds, while preemergent weed control makes new weeds think twice about setting their roots down in treated territory. Homeowners need not be present for the service, eliminating the hassle of rushing back home from business meetings or pog-trading conventions.
Common household pests such as ants, termites, cockroaches, flies, and spiders can carry up to 33 types of bacteria, including some that cause illness in humans. They can eat away at a building's framework, as well as a homeowner's ability to confidently sleep with his or her mouth open. This is why Terminix technicians aren't satisfied with simply eliminating current pest problems—they strive to also prevent future infestations, and they guarantee their ability to do so.
Terminix team members know all the obscure places where pests like to hide: in water-heater closets, fireplaces, the centers of donuts, plumbing penetrations, and the weep holes in wood veneer walls. Their response to an infestation varies depending on the home's unique situation, but services may include sweeping away spider webs and wasp nests from the eaves of the home, setting up traps, dusting and spraying interior or exterior crevices that are prone to pests, and spraying around the home's foundation.

With federally licensed flight instructors, quality ground facilities, and well-maintained aircraft, Tri-State's flight school provides a stable base for serious students or an enabling experience for those simply following mankind's innate urge to fly. Amateur aviators spend the first half of the lesson on the ground learning the principles of flight, including basic aerodynamics and how the craft works. Before takeoff students assist in the preflight inspection, then help check the weight and balance to ensure the plane is in shape to fly and has finished its vegetables. During flight, students will be allowed to briefly take the controls and pilot the plane, and then review their voyage in a postflight debrief.
