is protecting the safety of our employees and customers. Pest Control has been

Timing is Everything
February is right around the corner. Did you know that the month of February is Bird-Feeding Month? Our feathered friends are beginning to come back from the warmer climates to enjoy spring and summer here with us. To celebrate the occasion why not get the kids together and make a birdfeeder? Here are some great ideas for DIY feeders. This is a great way to help the birds and do something creative with the family all while looking forward to springtime!
DASHING THRU THE SNOW …
The weather has hit us hard and it looks like winter is here to stay. Be prepared for the cold and the wintery road conditions. Pack a winter emergency kit and keep it in the vehicle. This should include a warm blanket, extra hats, and gloves, some water, nonperishable food items, and an extra phone charger. AAA has some great info for taking care of your car in the cold weather and also tips for driving in the snow. Stay safe this winter!

The Ants Are Marching…
Did you know that for ants it’s summer year-round in your home? Although the temperatures outside are cold your house offers a warm haven. Our weather is unpredictable, even under the best of circumstances. This time of year it can go from colder to warmer within hours. Keep in mind that even if it’s cold outside the sun can warm up the walls of your home enough to cause the ants to come out. When they realize it’s still cold they will look for a warm place – and that place turns out to be your home!
We have already begun receiving calls about ant activity. If you see ants in your house give Rapid a call or send me a message.
