What is it about spring time that makes you smile?  The sun shines a little longer, the birds chirp a little louder, and families begin to gather together for evenings around the campfire.  It truly is my most favorite time of the year!

About a week ago, my daughter, who’s 13, came to me and asked, “Mom, why did God have to make mosquitos and every other scary insect that likes to eat me?”  I smiled at her, wanting to give her a little tease, because she’s definitely a girly girl when it comes to insects or anything “creepy” for that matter.  But, unfortunately I didn’t have a straight answer.  God questions are usually met with, “You should ask Him that question when you meet Him.”

Well, why do we have insects that like to feed on us?  It’s usually a case of wrong place/wrong time.  They must feed on a host and humans are an unlucky bystander.  So, what eats you?  Sometimes travel or used furniture introduces Bed Bugs into our environment.  For most of us, fighting mosquitos is just something we deal with.  How about fleas and ticks?  For some of you it’s the pesky fire ant bed that pops up in the worst places.  All of these Pests can be controlled and/or eliminated given the correct treatment.  Bed bugs can get out of control very quickly and often times the treatment is very pricey.  We go out of our way to ensure that our customers get relief in a timely manner without taking advantage of them.  Unlike, bed bugs, Mosquitos can transmit disease and there are many products and services available on the market to make your outside a bit more enjoyable.  Albeit pricey at times, this is a service that you could isolate to the spring and summer months to fit your budget.  Fire ant control is also a service that you might need or would desire for your yard.  It’s a bi-annual treatment that is very effective for long term control.  We also offer a comprehensive plan for flea and tick control.  This treatment is very straightforward and not as pricey as the other services.

Spring time can be a bit overwhelming, but here at Double “D”, we strive to keep you comfortable throughout the year.  Please call us if you have any questions or concerns.  We work for you!
