Late one Friday night, clients of Mayday Pest Solutions, Inc. heard a strange knocking. Having relied on Mayday for three years to route brown, recluse spiders from their garage and spray their property for rodents, they didn’t hesitate to call, despite the fact that it was 10 p.m. A technician uniformed in a white polo arrived first thing the next morning and followed the noise to discover a bewildered possum hiding inside the garage. Instead of shrugging his shoulders and referring the couple to animal control or the local pied piper, he trapped the visitor, bid adieu to the unwitting hosts, and left to re-release it into the wild.
That kind of aplomb is the result of more than a decade of experience in pest control. The family at Mayday opened its business in 1998, and since then, the business and its technicians have demonstrated a rare dedication and lack of squeamishness if the job extends beyond normal requirements. Mayday’s primary targets are winged, stinging insects such as hornets and wasps, as well as ants, small rodents, fleas, and ticks, which technicians will valiantly pursue to the edge of any property line or backyard moat.

Juan's Landscaping's grass-grooming crew styles and pampers lawns, crafting them into clean-cut alter egos. The staff saves homeowners from sunburn, grass stain, and mower's itch by tackling home terrains, mowing down arrogantly overgrown grass and trimming any blades overreaching the strict border between lawn and asphalt. Lawnkeepers also banish mutinous clippings, leaving abodes to reign over a peaceful green kingdom.
The textile technicians at Village Cleaners purify wardrobes using a biodegradable solvent called DF-2000 Fluid. This hypoallergenic, eco-friendly solution is sensitive to the needs of fragile fabrics but still has the muscle to break down dirt, grime, and salad dressing around the collar. A fresh dose of solvent goes into each load, along with fresh soap and a brand new filter, to ensure that clothes emerge from the machine as clean as technologically possible and free of static, odor, and allergens.
But the process doesn’t stop there. Once clothes are clean, the staff will starch shirts if requested and replace any broken or missing buttons at no charge. A final inspection sees to it that no spot or stain escapes back into the world, and alteration, repair, and leather care tends to especially needy garments.
