Spring is just around the corner. Is your home protected?

As temperatures continue to increase and the ground becomes warmer, termites will emerge to launch an attack on vulnerable homes across the country. To promote public vigilance against termites, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recognizes March 15-21 as Termite Awareness Week. Rose Pest Solutions is proud to take part in this annual observance by educating homeowners about the threat of termites and the possible signs of an infestation this spring.

Posted by Janelle Iaccino on Fri, Jul 25, 2014 @ 11:36 AM

Termites are the last thing you ever expected to invade your home. Getting rid of them is not covered by your homeowner's insurance. You start to call exterminators. Quotes are in the thousands. Some companies swear by the conventional liquid termite treatment method. Others are advocates of green termite control by Sentricon or a similar baiting system. How do you know what is better? Which one do you go with??

How to kill termites the GREEN way.

Posted by Janelle Iaccino on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 @ 03:34 PM

They destroy millions of homes every year. Termites are known as the "silent destroyers" because a lot of times, homeowners have no clue these insects are eating away at their houses until significant damage has already been done.

How to kill termites the GREEN way

Termites are not like other insects that will occassionally invade your home or property. There's not a can of bug spray you can pick up from your local hardware or home and garden store that will take care of them if you start seeing them. You could hold a spray can button down on a cluster of termites until you empty the whole can and that will not eliminate their presence on your property.

Termites are capable of developing massive, intelligent colonies beneath the soil. If you see some clusters of termites in your basement or in your flower bed while you're doing some gardening, remember that cluster is a fraction of what population most likely is thriving beneath the surface. Termite presence is a much deeper pest issue compared to the few earwigs you might see in your laundry room or those tiny ants that pop up in your kitchen. The good news is, there are termite control options. Better yet, there's a way to kill termites with a completely green option that has proven to be the champion termite colony eliminator of all options available to you. Check it out.

So, we didn't really have much of a winter this year. I'd say it was more like "Sprinter"...(ya know, spring+winter. LOL) This only means whatever we knew of seasonal pests could be very different this year as the ground thaws.
