Congrats to Edmonds Realty

thread
Congrats to Edmonds Realty
Darrell Beetham and Jim Osborn from Paratex had a chance to stop by the Edmonds Realty open house last night. This is a great new location for owner, Lucille Noel, a fellow member of the Seattle Executives Association. This office is two short blocks from the ferry terminal and Edmonds is a great ferry-side town that connects the Olympic Peninsula to the North Seattle suburbs. Edmonds has a great marina and excellent restaurants. It is also has a very walkable downtown area. If you would like any information on property in the area stop by and see Lucille at 111 Main Street in Downtown Edmonds.

GOOD BUGS - BAD BUGS

thread
GOOD BUGS - BAD BUGS GOOD BUGS - BAD BUGS GOOD BUGS - BAD BUGS
According to the Smithsonian, it is estimated that at any one time there are more than 10 quintillion insects alive. That's 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 for us non math majors. Most insects are not only good bugs, but they are a necessary part of our ecosystem. Occasionally bugs can be harmful to humans and our property. Some spread deadly diseases and some damage wooden structures. Some that are beneficial can even cause a fatal reaction in a person who is sensitive. At Paratex, we invite you to enjoy and marvel at nature and the vast majority of good bugs. But, if a bad one bothers you, give us a call.

Paratex Scares Birds for Halloween

thread
Paratex Scares Birds for Hall...
It really isn't a Halloween prank. Kevin Mayhew from Paratex Pest Control shows a fake Horned Owl that is hung in an area where pigeons and other birds like to roost - to scare them away. Pigeons can both spread disease and contaminate food products - as well as cause damage to buildings. The fake owl moves its wings in the wind and is a harmless way to scare other birds away.

Paratex gets calls re Hobo Spiders

There are only two spiders in the Northwest considered to be "poisonous." All spiders can bite, but usually a spider bite is nothing more than a mosquito bite. The Black Widow and the Hobo can be more serious. A third spider of concern, the Brown Recluse, is not found in our area (unless transported in a box of goods from a more southern state). Black widows are more common east of the Cascade Mountains, but, occasionally found on the west side. Hobo Spiders seem to be more of a concern from our customers. Most are seeing a common garden spider this time of year, which is plentiful, but not a major concern. Hobo spiders are fairly small and rarely reach 2 inch leg span (in case you want to hold one down and measure). Try not to let one bite you. The top spider is a Garden Spider. Below, a Black Widow, and then the Hobo. The bottom illustrates a Hobo's size.

At Paratex, we consider diversity in our employee base a benefit. More and more of the population in the Pacific Northwest is foreign born. Many of our customers are foreign born and come from cultures that are not the old school "traditional" cultures that dominated a few decades ago. This includes our vendors as well. It is interesting to learn about new cultures and traditions and try to provide service to everyone. Within our relatively small company we have employees who were born in Bosnia, England, Taiwan, and the Philippines. We have two employees from Samoa and two Native Americans from Montana. One of our office employees shows off her diversity with a new purple hair do.

All local pests don't come from here

thread

In order to do our job we must identify and be familiar with pests that are not native to the Pacific Northwest. Some pests came long ago and stayed. An example is the tree rat, which is a relative of the rats that spread the plague in Europe during the dark ages. They were transported in the holds of wooden ships and came ashore in port cities, such as Seattle. Today we have shipments arriving from all parts of the world, including tropical areas. We find many insects that can be harmful, and sometimes even scorpions.
