    Training Opportunities from Univar

    Training Opportunities from Univar The passing of Norm Ehmann earlier this year gave me time to reflect on the legacy of training Univar has with the pest control industry.

    What's All This Talk About Facebook And Twitter?

    What’s all this talk about Facebook and Twitter?      The other day I asked myself, “is there no longer any good reason to avoid Facebook or Twitter?” The sites have crossed a threshold — they are now so widely trafficked that it’s fast becoming a routine aide to social interaction, like e-mail and cell phones with more than 200 million users. It’s only the most recent of many new technologies yet to come. Just think back 20 years ago when carrying a mobile phone seemed outrageous? Then as more people got phones, they became more u...

    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 ...
