Paratex adopts new mascot

thread
Paratex adopts new mascot Paratex adopts new mascot
Dr Imma Bugg has been taking over as the new symbol of Paratex. Many years ago "Doc Kilzum" was used. It was a take off of Uncle Sam, which was very popular during the Second World War. His motto was "his patients all die." Today, we have a new emphasis on organic pest control and non-chemical means. Imma is friendly and green - in keeping with newer Paratex methods.

Paratex Fumigates Clothing Paratex Fumigates Clothing Paratex Fumigates Clothing
Among the items we routinely fumigate - used clothing bound for foreign countries in Eastern Europe and South America. Some involves relief goods for charity and some is for commercial purpose. These countries want our certification that the goods are bug free. Above are containers lined up for fumigation. Also, a rental truck with household bedding and clothing being fumigated for bedbugs. Fumigation is the ultimate weapon in the war against pests.

Paratex says no to marijuana bugs

thread
Paratex says no to marijuana ... Paratex says no to marijuana ...
We had our first request to control bugs from a marijuana grower today. With plants comes pests. It's just part of nature. His problem was spider mites. Other growers report being bothered with ants (which are preying on other insects such as aphids). I was able to convince this grower that we did not engage in agricultural type pest control, which allowed us not to have to make a legal or moral decision to have him as a customer. Times are changing.

Paratex likes wolf spiders!

thread
Paratex likes wolf spiders! Paratex likes wolf spiders!
The wolf spider should be considered our friend, as they are beneficial pests that munch on crickets, cockroaches and various flying insects. When a wolf spider bites a human, usually the damage is minimal, and typically there is no need for treatment unless the person bitten is allergic, or is having a reaction. That being said, the bite can be very painful. Unlike bedbugs or fleas where there are usually multiple bites, the spider bite is usually one at a time. Overall sanitation and the reduction of clutter will help reduce spiders as they will often take shelter and make their homes in piles and other items rarely moved. And, anything that reduces the number of insects around your home will reduce spiders as well. Of course, if you need help you know who to call.

Had a chance to visit friends at the Ballard Rotary this week. They meet at Anthony's at Shilshole. The lunch was ling cod - and, delicious! The Ballard Rotary Club dates back to the mid-40's in Seattle and is still going strong. Every business and professional person should be involved in a service club such as Rotary. The Ballard Club meets Tuesday noon at Anthony's.

Yellow Jackets can be Dangerous

thread
Yellow Jackets can be Danger... Yellow Jackets can be Danger...
Yellow jacket stings pose significant health threats to humans.
They are territorial and will sting if their nest is threatened.
They can sting repeatedly and can cause an allergic reaction.
Every year over 500,000 people end up in emergency rooms as a result of insect stings in the U.S.

Yellow jackets are social insects that live in nests , either in the ground or in attics or eaves. They can be found anywhere humans can be found. They feed on sweets and protein and are commonly attracted to trash and recycling bins. They are most active in late summer and early autumn – LIKE NOW!

Prevention - keep garbage and trash cans covered, wear shoes in grassy areas, and avoid wearing sweet-smelling perfumes. Screens on doors and windows will keep them out of your house. If you have a severe reaction to a sting gets immediate medical attention.

If you need help eliminating a nest give us a call.

Good News in War Against Bedbugs

thread
Good News in War Against Bed...
Paratex has sponsored and a major distributor has awarded a grant to a major charity for the application of a new Green Bed Bug Eliminator and Preventer. While Paratex is one of the few companies in the area that can fumigate, which is the most effective method against bedbugs, fumigation is not practical in many living environments. The new chemical application is non-toxic and is hypoallergenic and not harmful to humans or other mammals. It is an excellent choice for any environment including residences where children and fragile adults live, as well as long-term care and rehab facilities. We believe it is also a far better method than heat treatment which is currently being pushed on some multi-family living environments. Paratex is pleased to be a leader in green pest control methods.

Caution with heat to kill bedbugs!

thread
Caution with heat to kill bedbu...
A man recently set his house on fire in New Jersey while using heat to kill bed bugs. He was using a space heater, a hair dryer, and a heat gun. Heat will kill bed bugs and some companies will heat your home or apartment to kill them. We are not a fan of this method for a number of reasons. We have better ways to eliminate bed bugs. Putting clothes in a dryer on high heat is an good idea, however, if you suspect you may have picked them up while traveling. When staying in hotels or motels keep your suitcase off the floor and away from the bed. Inspect things before bringing them back into your home. Bed bugs are not considered dangerous, but some people can suffer from serious allergic reactions. They are highly annoying at best. If you need more information give us a call.

Pests? Call Fox Plumbing!

thread
Pests? Call Fox Plumbing! Pests? Call Fox Plumbing!
Many times a pest problem around your house is actually a plumbing problem. Insects are often attracted to water and excess moisture. Wet wood leads to dry rot and wood destroying insects. Drainage problems causing wet crawl spaces, toilet seal leaks and leaking pipes may be the cause of your insect problems. A plumber may be able to eliminate the cause of insects. There are several highly rated plumbing companies in the Greater Seattle area, including Fox. And, speaking of plumbing, be sure there are no gaps around the pipes entering your home from the outside. Mice can enter from outside or under your house through very small openings. A can of foam insulation or some steel wool packed around pipes is an easy fix.

Crawl spaces must breathe too

thread
Crawl spaces must breathe too Crawl spaces must breathe too
People sometimes call Paratex to have us treat for termites, beetles and rot when the real problem is a lack of ventilation or some other structural defect. This house had a combination of insects and rot - but, they were incidental to the real problem - a lack of ventilation. Although there was plenty of clearance in the crawl space and no indication of a water problem the lack of ventilation and a moist soil without a vapor barrier simply caused the wood to rot over a period of years - and, attract insects as well. A chemical treatment is not advised. Substantial structural corrections are the answer here.
