Antacpest to donate $25 to school per family that signs up for pest control service by June 1st, 2015

Antac Pest Control, has recently offered to donate $25 for each new customer that signs up for or switches over to Antac's annual maintenance program. This would apply to new customers only that sign up by June 1st, 2015. The new customer would need to mention the beneficiary school's name when calling to sign up.

   If your school has approximately 100 families sign up, this could mean $2,500 that could be used towards new books, new technology, art and music programs, etc. Just imagine if 400 families signed up!

   Antac services is all over San Diego County, so if you have a relative living outside of our school district but within San Diego County, they could still call and mention your school's name when signing up. Your school will still get the $25 credit. I've attached a flyer that you could send out to your students via email, Peachjar, or post to your school website or e-news... You could encourage your student body to share it on social media as well.

  Please let us know if this is something you would like to do for fundraising this spring. Also feel free to pass this opportunity along to other friends, school foundations and school districts within San Diego County - if you happen to know of others that might be able to benefit from a fundraiser like this.

Pest Control is Best Done by Professionals

There are plenty of ways for a homeowner to effectively get rid of unwanted pests and other small critters on their property, and vacuuming is one of them. Many pest management contractors use targeted vacuuming as part of their services, particularly when it’s necessary to minimize/eliminate the use of insecticides and promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. As you may gather, these practices rely more on the use of common household items and less on chemicals, making them more eco-friendly.

Are Carpenter Bees Infesting Your Home?

Spring is almost over, but certain notable occurrences from this season can linger beyond the mild months. Take pest infestations for instance; certain critters make their presence known every spring, and carpenter bees are no exception. During this time, male and female bees of this species mate, which can be bothersome to humans as they destroy property to build a home for their family.

Typical Nest Sightings
These carpenter bees start building nests around springtime, and these could be within the parts of your home made of dry, unfinished, or unpainted wood. That includes your walls, ceiling, deck, and some furniture. The tunnels they burrow, which you’ll see as round holes with sawdust piles and possibly a trail of yellowish excrement, are typically half an inch in diameter and anywhere between 6 inches to several feet in length.
