Licensed and insured technicians from the Mosquito Squad control mosquitoes and ticks with their litany of services aimed at combating insect-borne diseases such as Lyme disease and the West Nile Virus. Customers can opt for traditional mosquito- and tick-eliminating sprays or all-natural sprays that simply repel the pests with a formula made from rejected screenplays, as well as choose to install automatic misting systems they can control with the push of a button. Mosquito Squad backs their services with a 100% guarantee to re-spray the yard or refund the cost of the services. Additionally, they partner with Malaria No More with their “Swat Malaria” campaign to donate treated bed nets to children in Africa to repel malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
A house can be as grand and opulent as money can buy, but without a lush lawn surrounding, it's just another building. The landscaping experts at B&E Sod Services turn bare dirt into a waving sea of green. No job is too big for the grass experts; they're as comfortable starting from scratch as they are filling in spotty patches of an existing yard. They also stay vigilant during the winter, shoveling snow away from walks and driveways while the grass slumbers.
Many things in water are completely invisible: heavy metals, minerals, the ghosts of popped bubbles. The team at Water Doctors Water Treatment can test for those and other imperceptible contaminants. Then, technicians and engineers help get rid of them with water filtration system options. Depending on the client's needs, a reverse osmosis system or a large-tank water filtration system might be the best call.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Common phrases, from “pounding the pavement” to “hitting the road,” point to how roughly humans treat their beloved, supportive asphalt. In response, the technicians at Suburban Sealcoat challenge this norm, administering services that protect and rehabilitate any sturdy, blackened surface. With a 6% SS-polymer-blend additive in their sealant, they safeguard pavement against dangers ranging from environmental wear and tear to cars with weak bladders. They also eradicate cracks with a hot-rubber filler heated to a sizzling 400 degrees. And when the techs aren't treating, cleaning, or patching up asphalt, they can be found re-striping parking lots, clearly delineating spaces to prevent cars from parking inside of each other.
Since opening 40 years ago, each of the trees at B&J Trees has been planted, grown, and harvested on-site. Today, it's two resident arborists who nurture a slew of different tree breeds throughout the seasons. In the nursery, visitors will find more than 1,500 "balled and burlap" trees?whose trunks have been wrapped in burlap, and roots have been carefully nestled into a protective covering?including spruce, white pine, and balsam fir. During the summer months, full lines of landscape-ready trees line the walls. Come Christmas, they supply locals with lush, fragrant trees, including fraser fir, balsam fir, canaan fir, and pine. The folks at B&J encourage their patrons to bring along the whole family to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, popcorn, cups of hot cocoa, a Santa Claus impersonator, and?at some sites?chainsaw carvings.
