The Last Hurrah

In my mind Labor Day always marks the end of summer. In just one week that final Summer fling will be upon us, although most of the kids have already gone back to school. However, the Summer weather seems to want to stick around for awhile. This coming holiday weekend could see us at the beach, having a cookout, doing some hiking and biking and other fun outdoor activities. Because of the hot weather and the few rain storms we have had it looks like the perfect conditions for Summer’s pest to join us for our Last Hurrah. The heat and rain make perfect conditions for a wave of mosquito activity so be sure to pack the insect repellent. Beware on your Labor Day picnics, the stinging insects have been out in full force all month!  Don’t forget about the most common pest in our area – the ant. Prepare yourselves for these pests before you go out and you will have a more enjoyable time.

Labor day isn’t the only holiday that takes place in September. There are some other dates that may be worth mentioning.


9/11 – 911 Remembrance Day / Forever etched in our minds, this day is to reflect upon those events and remember those that lost there lives.


9/13 – Grandparents Day / Be sure to honor your Grandparents, just as we do Mothers and Fathers.


9/16 – National Play Doh Day / Who doesn’t love Play Doh? Relive a moment from your childhood by playing with some today!


9/19 – Talk Like A Pirate Day / Just for fun, use all your pirate speak today. Garrr! Shiver Me Timbers!


9/28 – Good Neighbor Day / A big smile, a helping hand, a small gesture can go a long way in being a Good Neighbor.
