The licensed and bonded technicians from Bug Guy help homeowners reclaim their abodes from incursions by pests. Rather than simply inundate rooms with chemicals though, a single professional will arrive, thoroughly search for weak points in the home's defenses, and use colorless and odorless pesticide sprays to eliminate infestations. The team member can also help prevent future problems by sealing any holes that rodents, beetles, spiders, ants, and other pests commonly use to infiltrate walls.
Josh Erdman has had many nicknames in his life—Erdman, Nerd Man, and Herd Man to name a few. But the one that stuck was Erdye, and it became the tag for his residential and commercial pest-control business. He and his crew of insured technicians can treat for an array of intruders, ranging from bedbugs and mice to former pest-control technicians intent on revenge.
It might be hard to believe considering its vast array of products, but Sears, Roebuck and Co. began with one accessory: watches. In 1886, Richard W. Sears bought a box of unwanted watches from a jeweler, thinking he could turn a profit by selling them. He was correct and committed to the watch business by hiring Alvah C. Roebuck, an experienced watchmaker.
As time went on, though, their business expanded its umbrella far beyond what people wore on their wrists. Sears became known as the place to shop for almost any appliance, from sewing machines to those magical boxes that create water from nothing and clean your clothes.
Today, the stores stock clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchen equipment, tools for outdoor living, and home decor. This variety is sustained by Sears's proprietary brands—Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard, to name a few—and other national names that populate the shelves.
