Without having to finish each service by muttering, "Hasta la vista, baby," and riding off on a motorcycle, the Mosquito Terminators leave a lasting impression on homeowners by liberating backyards from pesky disturbances. Armed with a natural-based solution that is safe for families and pets, the company's assassins spritz exterior spaces with treatments that kill and repel mosquitoes for up to three weeks. Barrier sprays work around the clock and, prior to outdoor gatherings such as barbecues and pool parties, hosts can utilize event sprays so guests aren't constantly swatting the air or forced to roast marshmallows over citronella candles. Misting systems are also available, and automatically dispense low concentrations of solution insecticide several times daily.

The history of R.B. Queern & Co. follows a line of handymen that stretches back to the company’s founder, Edward Brooks, who started delivering oil to homes by horse-drawn wagon in the early 20th century.

Home heating has come a long way since Edward’s day: the company now offers a wide array of services for air conditioners, water heaters, and radiators, all performed by licensed and certified technicians.
Storage Pros Self Storage squirrels away customers' stuff in well-lit, fenced, and secure storage units. Rent a 5'x5' unit ($35–$75 depending on amenities and location) to stow away lumberjack costumes and papier-mâché blue oxen, or snag a 10'x20' nonclimate-controlled space for one month ($155–$201) to store 1 million Paul Bunyan Day flyers. Multiple locations offer storage spaces up to 400 square feet, and the Fairhaven facility has enough square footage to house a life-size replica of Shamu. Prices and availability can vary, so prospective packers should call ahead for details.
Dream Carpets owner Chris Augusto leads a team of dirt fighters ready to wage battle against soiled floors and upholstery.

Kitchen tile gleams like 100 porcelain suns after a thorough de-griming ($139+ for average kitchen), and the standard sofa weighs a full pound less after the clean team sucks up pollen and dust mites embedded in its upholstery ($85+). The online estimate calculator helps anticipate project costs and predict babies' genders.
