The licensed pest-control technicians from Florida Pest & Lawn shoo away a wide range of critters such as termites, bedbugs, ants, or rodents from inside and outside homes. The pest-control team takes its orders from Richie Kidwell, an industry veteran who learned from his father Fred, also a pest-control specialist, that bugs require more stern evacuation measures than a polite cough or a cease-and-desist letter. On each visit, a team member makes sure that no bug slips through cracks by performing treatments on both the interior and exterior of the home, inspecting and spraying popular pest hangouts such as around appliances, bathroom fixtures, windows, and garbage cans. To ensure that colonies don’t return, the technician also sprays a six-foot barrier around the home’s exterior, which effectively keeps all but 6’1” bugs at bay.
In addition to their pest banishing specialty, the team trims and cares for lawns and shrubs to keep yards healthy and verdant, wielding environmentally friendly products to fertilize plants or snuff out unwanted weeds.
Gwen Willhite founded Cookies by Design in 1983, when an unsatisfying brainstorming session about gift ideas led her to ponder one question: why should flowers and sweets remain separate? Her solution was to design the cookie bouquet, where custom, hand-decorated cookies are displayed on sticks and arranged like flowers in gift baskets. Her invention quickly became a popular gift among locals, particularly those allergic to real blooms or too bashful to look at naked cookies.
Twenty-five years later, there are more than 200 Cookies by Design locations across the country. Each shop's team of bakers creates cookie baskets with a degree of care that matches Willhite's original vision, decorating and arranging sweet shapes for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion.
