    Mosquito Season is Here: Are You Ready?

        Last night we had our first outdoor meal of the season. Some close friends invited us over for a couple of steaks to help kick off the warm weather. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes were also celebrating their first meal of the season - us! You see, their back yard is rather large and lined with lots of bushes and trees, which offers a perfect resting place for the local mosquito population during the warm hours of the day.     After diving for cover indoors, I discussed some control options with them.  Along with a generous application of DEET, I explai...

    Success Through Diversification

        I would like to talk a little about diversification. Not the kind of diversification one should do regarding finances, but the kind that could open opportunities for increased business. When times get tough, it makes sense to look for ways to expand your service offerings. Not only can you do this with new products and services to existing customers, but by also looking into completely new service offerings.     One such opportunity is Nisus’s new product Pool Proof. It is a borate-based water harmonizer that stabilizes swimming pool pH, which could ...

    IPM in Schools

    The reduction of pesticide use around school-aged children has become a hot legislative topic, pushed vehemently by activist groups who are encouraging all states to implement State-mandated requirements. The basis for the School IPM mandates is the concern that children may be more susceptible to toxic substances, and may have a cumulative exposure to pesticides in their activities in school, on playgrounds, or in the home. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed guidelines on School IPM, and it is expected that there will be federal mandates in the future. At th...
