Horizons’ crack squad of bug squashers examines residential and commercial locations for infestations. After evicting roaches, ants, and couch-crashing college buddies from a home’s inside, technicians move outside to combat mosquitoes and snakes.

Peter and Mimi O’Brien, American Eagle Moving & Transport’s owners, value efficiency. Although they agree that quick, reliable service is of paramount importance, they reached this conclusion in different ways—Peter as a deputy sheriff; Mimi as a corporate project manager. Combining their disparate backgrounds, Peter and Mimi deliver prompt and professional moving and storage services. Movers carefully protect belongings, and specialize in transporting antiques as well as grandmas who refuse to get out of their rocking chairs. To bridge the gap between moves, they offer long- and short-term storage, inventorying and blanketing each item for safekeeping.
