Go Green this Spring

Tuesday, April 09, 2019 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Celebrate spring this year by going green with Mid-Cities Pest Control. We are happy to announce two ways for you to celebrate Earth Day (or every day) with us starting in 2019.

The first is a treatment option we’ve been proudly offering for several years: organic pest control. Though not every pest can be treated with an organic option, we always strive to provide our customers with the greatest array of options possible, and for general pests, organic options are highly effective and leave behind only a bit of a scent of Rosemary. Not only is organic better for the environment, it also has the benefit of added peace of mind for those with health concerns who otherwise might not be able to have pest control treatments in their home.

The second option, which we just introduced in March 2019, is to join us in going paperless. We’ve recently implemented a new software, which is allowing us to make the switch from paper* to a more Earth-friendly and convenient electronic invoice system. With this new system, you will not only receive an email with your treatment information for the day, but you will also have a customer portal so that you can see your service history any time you like without having to keep paper files. This means that every time you receive your invoice in your inbox, can know you’ve done your part in making the world just a little bit greener.

And since this is a celebration, mention that you read this post and receive $10 off your next service.

 

*for those who need or would like paper invoices, simply request it and we will be happy to accommodate

Keep an Eye out for Carpenter Ants this Spring

Monday, March 18, 2019 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Spring is on its way to north Texas, bringing with it warm days, plenty of rain, and a surge in pest activity. With so few days below freezing this winter, insects will be thriving and making their presence known as they head out into the world to expand their colonies. Though there are several pests to keep your eye on this March, one of the most potentially damaging is carpenter ants. These insidious pests can make their nests within the walls of your home, growing until the colony is large enough to do significant damage. By the time they show the distinctive signs of an infestation (frass and swarmers), you know that damage has been done to your home.

But before carpenter ants find their way into your home, they will have built a colony in a protected location outside, making this a great time of year to practice good preventative measures as you prep your yard and garden for the upcoming season. Keep an especially close eye on your pool, as the shimmer from the water can attract carpenter ants, and immediately give us a call if you notice a large number of ants in the water as this is a sure sign that there is a large colony somewhere nearby that is certain to be doing property damage.

To learn all about carpenter ants see our March Blog.

If you are experiencing a carpenter ant infestation, give us a call and mention that you read this post to receive $20.00 off your carpenter ant treatment.

Help Us Celebrate 40 Years of Service

Monday, January 07, 2019 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

The festivities of Christmas and New Year’s may be over but at Mid-Cities Pest Control that doesn’t mean the celebrations have ended. 2019 marks our ruby anniversary. Yes, that’s 40 years happily serving the metroplex.

When Mid-Cities Pest control was founded, a gallon of gas was just $0.86, you could get a cup of coffee for $0.83, the Academy Award for Best Picture went to The Deer Hunter, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street won the Tony Award for Best Musical. And though a lot has changed since then, and the company has been passed on from father to son, the principles at the heart of Mid-Cities Pest Control have remained the same. We are, as always, committed to providing excellent service at affordable prices.

So help us celebrate this momentous anniversary as we strive to give back to the communities that have helped us grow over the years by continuing our food drive benefiting the Arlington Life Shelter. Purchase a General Spray¹ for the special price of $79.95* + tax/fees with the donation of 3 canned goods and keep your home pest free while helping out those in need get through the dark and cold of winter.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Pest-Free Christmas and Share the Gift of Caring

Thursday, November 29, 2018 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Brightly colored lights bedeck rooflines, wreaths adorn doors, and everywhere you go the scent of pine fills the air; Christmastime has arrived! It’s the season of joy, love and peace, where good tidings ring out and a happy song seems to always be playing. And though December has only just begun, you can feel the cheer of yuletide as you wrap presents, bake cookies, and decorate your Christmas tree, eagerly awaiting visits from family and friends as you celebrate the wonder of Christmas.

But family and friends aren’t the only only ones gathering in your home this season. As winter settles in, you can find your cozy home is as enticing to pests as it is to you, and while you’re looking to snuggle in by a fire sipping hot cocoa, bugs will be looking for a warm, sheltered spot complete with water and food sources to thrive in during the cold months outside.

Still, these pests needn’t ruin your festivities. Just give us a call at 817-354-5350 or 1-800-310-BUGS and set up an appointment to get your home treated before your celebrations are in full swing, so you don’t have to worry about spiders decking your halls with webs or visions of roaches dancing in your head.

And in the spirit of peace on Earth and goodwill to all, we will be doing a food drive benefiting the Arlington Life Shelter as part of this Christmas Special. Get a General Spray¹ for $79.95* + tax/fees with the donation of 3 canned goods and keep your home ready for magical silent nights while also helping out a good cause. After all, it is the season of the heart, so help make it the most wonderful time of the year.

This Thanksgiving, Give Pests the Boot While Giving to Our Holiday Food Drive

Monday, November 19, 2018 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

     Fall has settled over north Texas, bringing with it rain, cooler weather, and the inevitable piles of leaves scattered across lawns throughout the metroplex. As we leave October behind, the scents and energy of the holiday season begin to pervade the air. Excitement grows as thoughts of tasty treats and plans for family gatherings fill the days leading up to Thanksgiving. It’s a time of kindness and generosity of spirit as we reflect on all of the beautiful things we have in our lives.

Unfortunately, it can also be a time of bounty for pests. Between the moisture from fall rains and the excess of harborage areas from leaf litter, bugs can thrive even as the temperatures drop. In fact, the cooler temperatures outside are likely to make your house an even more tempting place for pests to call their home.

But there’s no need to let pests add stress to your holiday plans; this November, in advance of the big day, take advantage of our holiday pest control special and get a General Spray¹ for $85.00* + tax/fees with the donation of 3 canned goods to benefit the Arlington Life Shelter and share the bounty of the season with those in need while keeping your home ready for your holiday entertaining. Just give us a call at 817-354-5350 or 1-800-310-BUGS to schedule your appointment and get back to enjoying the Thanksgiving season pest-free.

A Warning as the Rainy Season Continues

Saturday, March 31, 2018 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

This year has brought with it a particularly high yield of rain for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, just over 15 inches in the first three months alone; that’s almost half of last year’s total rainfall. And while this is excellent news for lawns and gardens, it’s also an advantage for a host of pests looking to proliferate as temperatures warm up. Though many of these will be nuisance pests (small ants, pill bugs, house spiders), some will be detrimental to our homes (termites and carpenter ants), and worse still, some can be dangerous to our health (poisonous spiders and certain mosquitoes). But beyond the known dangers lies a seemingly innocuous pest that can, under certain conditions, prove exceptionally perilous; the garden slug. Now, a slug left to its own devices is nothing to be concerned about, but due to the dietary habits of slugs, if one were to be ingested by a person, it has the potential to bring about significant health repercussions, as this unfortunate story of a teenage rugby player in Australia tells (reported by Fox News).  Though the likelihood of you or your children ingesting an infected slug is quite rare, it is an important reminder to be cautious around pests and wildlife as they can carry diseases and worms that, though not harmful to the host, can be exceptionally dangerous, and potentially fatal, to people. Rats and mice are especially known for carrying diseases that are hazardous to humans, such as the hantaviris, and as the above example shows, the dangers caused by one pest can spread far beyond the initial host. So as the rainy season continues and temperatures climb, remember to exercise caution when dealing with pests of all shapes and sizes, as threats can sometimes come in unexpected forms.
