Great Year!

      The ants, bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets have all gone to Florida for the winter (not really, they just go dormant). Bats have left their summer attic roosts and gone to their winter hibernaculas (caves and mines where they hibernate for the winter), hopefully free of white nosed syndrome. Woodchucks are hibernating and skunks, raccoons, and possums are hunkered down, but will come out occasionally. Squirrels, and mice are always active. The squirrels are getting ready to breed and as soon as that happens (late December - Early January) they will start investigating attics, soffits, and chimneys for a place to build a nest. If they fall down chimneys, they can't get out and will die unless they are rescued. Mice will continue to move into homes for a warm place to spend the winter.
      2010 was another banner year. For the 15th consecutive year, gross revenue was up from the previous year. This year by almost 10%, and we still have 2 weeks to go. Recession, what recession! Here's hoping 2011 continues the trend.
      To all our loyal customers, friends, and family we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
