Triad Pest Control’s technicians have protected homes from pests and rodents for more than 25 years. Wielding organic, green products, they work with clients to develop integrated pest-management solutions that can stave off myriad pests and creepy crawlies such as ants, spiders, crickets, fleas, earwigs, roaches, rats, and mice. Their services also extend to shield against yellow jackets, bees, and hornets, and their mosquito treatments help protect families from annoying mosquitos and their accompanying dangers, such as West Nile virus.
For more than 40 years, homeowners have entrusted their yards to the experts at Weed Man. Perhaps it’s because the employees do more than just perform lawn-care services—they cultivate close working relationships with their clients. This means they are available by telephone or smoke signal any time of the day, promptly respond to faxes or emails within 48 hours, and explain the technical side of lawn care to their clients. Of course, what keeps customers coming back is the attention the staff members lavish on grass during services, which range from eradicating weeds with EPA-approved products to aerating lawns to ousting destructive insects.
A lawn-care technician from Lawn Doctor will diagnose personal pasture issues and provide customized services to improve yard appearance and health. To stimulate growth in receding grass lines, the power-seeding service spreads seeds throughout thinning yards for maximum germination to improve appearance and eschew lawn-sized baseball caps ($25+). Technicians can also seed undernourished plots with a fortifying fertilizer treatment ($50+), or aerate soil to allow for deeper root growth, easier nutrient access, and more ammo during slingshot fights.
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.
