Finally Spring…well we skipped that….
It took a long time coming, but we are managing to see some spring like weather, even though it’s almost summer.
Everyone is reporting a great upswing in business, but it’s only been kicking in the past couple of weeks. And everything has come all at once. Perimeter applications for carpenter ants, and a general insect barrier. Wasps and bees kicking in, and maybe even an increase over last year’s pressure.
But we missed the “pseudo-swarm” (you heard that here first) of the carpenter ants in February/March, and at least one good spray in April/May. So are you playing catchup or was it missed business?
Even seems like bed bug jobs have stabilized or even slowed a bit, or is every one learning the better ways to attack these pests?
But we did get some new products this year, and there are still 4 months of season ahead of us, so there are a few positives.
Just remember to be safe, use the right PPE (personal protective equipment), keep your sprayers and other applicators up to snuff, and drive safely!
I hope everyone has a great summer though, both in business and personally.
