By Mike Brady, Michael Brady & Co.
 
Don’t worry about the things you can’t control and concentrate on the things you can. With the markets reaching all-time highs, many people are wondering how long it might be before they retreat, how far they might decline, and how long they might be down. They are wondering what might cause the markets to decline. These are unknown variables and the unknown always causes concern.
 
You would be better off to concentrate on the things you can control. You can control many aspects of your life that can mitigate and manage the effects of these unknowns. If you are working, you can control the amount of money you are contributin ...

Don’t get stung!

Nothing shuts down the fun of an outdoor activity like someone getting stung by a wasp or yellow jacket. Especially in the spring and summer, when we see plenty of nests in, on, and around homes.
 
The best way to protect your family is by preventing stinging insects from nesting near you. And the best way to do that is with a structural power spray, which is not the same thing as a pressure wash.
 
At Ideal Pest Control, we spray your house with appropriate products designed to kill insects and prevent them from nesting. We spray the entire structure, including peaks, eaves, windows, soffits, shutters, corner posts, doorways, handra ...

Yikes! Stop wasps now

By Gary Jones, Ideal Pest Control
 
Right now most bee and wasp nests are about the size of a golf ball, but with these stinging insects working 24/7, nests can quickly grow to the size of a basketball. It happens because most people do not generally walk around their property looking up, and few homeowners have the time to inspect their property every few days. As a result, nests can grow very large—and dangerous—before being noticed.
 
The best thing you can do right now to protect your family is to perform some basic preventive maintenance with a structural power spray. Different from a power wash, a structural power spray destroys existing nests, discourages the ...

Every year, we get calls from frantic homeowners declaring, “I had some bees drilling into the side of my house, so I sprayed them and then sealed up the hole. I thought that would take care of them. Now, I’ve got a thousand bees in my bedroom and part of my ceiling is on the floor. I didn’t know bees could eat through drywall!”
 
If you see bees, wasps, or yellow jackets going into a small hole in the side of your house, or under the eaves, etc., but you cannot see the hive or nest, do not seal up the hole. These insects will find a way out, including chewing through your drywall and escaping into your home.

Yellow jackets are wasps that can be identified by their alternating black and yellow body segments and small size (about 10 to 16 mm in length). Although most yellow jackets are indeed black and yellow, some may exhibit white and black coloration.
 
Yellow jackets are often mistaken for bees, although their bodies lack significant hair, rounded abdomen, and the expanded hind legs used for carrying pollen—all characteristics of the bee. These social wasps live in colonies that may contain more than 1,000 insects at a time, and while some may consider yellow jackets to be beneficial because they eat beetle grubs, flies and other harmful ...

Here are answers to a few of the most common questions we hear from customers regarding carpenter ants:
 
“I see carpenter ants in my house for a couple of weeks each spring, then they seem to disappear. Should I be concerned?”
You’ll see carpenter ants in the early spring because the temperature inside your house is more to their liking. Soon, as temperatures start to rise, they will begin foraging outdoors. Many early calls for carpenter ant activity are a sure sign the nest is indoors, as they are less likely to be foraging in and out that early in the year. But don’t wait to call us. A carpenter nest can be easier ...

Eek! There’s mouse in the house

By Gary Jones, Ideal Pest Control
 
With the arrival of fall and cooler temperatures, mice and other rodents are searching for a warm, dry space and a little something to eat and drink. That means they work their way indoors through small cracks, crevices, and holes in our homes.
 
More than the “Eek!” factor and the fear of having a little rodent scamper up your pant leg, having a mouse in the house is a health threat to you and your family. They are in places where you may not even know you have a problem—in your cabinets, on kitchen countertops, hiding behind appliances, or even in the silverware drawer. 
 
The common signs of a rodent problem a ...
