THE OFFICIAL START OF SUMMER!
This month, Terri and I attended the biannual, national C12 conference, CURRENT ‘21, with 800 Christian business leaders in Orlando. Building Great Businesses for a Greater Purpose! We are pictured with guest worship leader and international recording artist, Chris Tomlin. In the second picture, I am with C12 Founder Buck Jacobs and a couple other pest control operators.
 
Honoring our Memorial Day Heroes!

In our office, we created an area of remembrance for Memorial Day to honor the men and women who died in service of the United States. We remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Memorial Day is also the official start of summer. Enjoy these beautiful days and be sure to contact us if the pests are bugging you!

FROM OUR BLOG
Did you know Tick Awareness Week was observed month? The timing, of course, was done to coincide with the approaching end of the school year and beginning of the summer camping season. Whether your child is in a scouting group or it’s just family tradition, a lot of people will be venturing into the woods in the next couple of months.

Entomologists from Germany spent five years finding and tracking Cardiocondyla ant colonies in Southern France. They found 175 of these colonies and from 2014-2019 recorded more than 450 times where sterile worker ants carried their future queens, usually on their backs. But the workers weren’t just taking the future royalty on some random voyage.

One of the more recent discoveries that researchers have made is that spider webs are finely tuned musical instruments. Every strand of the web has its own tone. For years, we thought spiders just used their eyes or the sounds of a trapped insect thrashing around in their web to find them. They do ‘hear’ the sounds, but more precisely, the hairs on their body feel the unique vibrations.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH!
This Lemon and Thyme Pear Tart with apricot glaze will surely impress your dinner guests!
