Framed, which was named runner-up for Best Frame Shop in 2010 by readers of the New Haven Advocate, uses careful custom-framing techniques to produce well-balanced rectangles for all occasions. Overseen by 15-year framing veterans Liz Hellwig and Rocco Compitello, the staff at Framed meets with prospective project doers, ironing out the two-dimensional details for projects large and small. These canvas wranglers practice conservation framing, a technique that keeps pieces true to their original conditions through the use of specialized glass and acid-free mat boards. Likewise, to ensure quality and a pleasant lack of presidential apparitions, all custom projects are constructed on-site in the store's comprehensive workshop. Though framing rates vary from project to project, an average 18"x24" piece—including a black wood frame, standard glass, and dry mounting—starts at approximately $66.
Mosquito Terminators annihilates its eponymous bloodsucking pests with potent, biodegradable mists. Barrier spray spritzed from a backpack-mounted blower slays bugs on contact, destroying insects—from garden-variety mosquitoes to gnats and biting flies—as they land on lawns and plants. Techs return every three weeks, or 1.5 mosquito years, during summer months to refresh chemical fortresses, or install automatic outdoor misting systems, which puff a low-concentration Safe Solutions insecticide into the air two to three times each day to continuously ward off winged invaders. Mosquito Terminators treats a range of spaces, from humble home lawns to larger commercial and municipal properties, such as parks, golf courses, and picnic grounds.
