Christmas Tree Hitchhikers – Helpful Tips To Keep Christmas Bugs Outside

Christmas Tree Bugs and Insect Treament advice
A helpful tip for you this Christmas season…
   You may find some “uninvited” guests at your home via their holiday travel on your real Christmas tree! We’re sure you took lots of time finding the perfect tree, but sometimes along with that perfect tree comes insects.  A real Christmas tree provides a well protected place for the insects to live during the cold and snow of winter months.  Once your tree is inside, and the lights are strung, and the ornaments are hung, the “magic” of insects may appear.  They think it’s Spring, it’s nice and warm inside your home and the insects become active again.
  Here’s a few tips to help you with these “uninvited” guests.
  – shake your Christmas tree outside before setting it up in your home, you can even consider washing your tree outside with the water hose to remove any debris and insects.
  – if some “guests” make it into your home, vacuum the pests up using an attachment without a beater bar, some insects can stain your flooring.
–   you can treat with an insecticide if necessary, consider using an insecticidal soap to treat the tree; spray aerosol home insecticides can also be used, but remember they are can be flammable, be sure and unplug the tree.
–   if you have concerns or need our assistance, give us a call, we want to make sure your Christmas is enjoyable
Now sit back, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, and marvel at the beauty of your decorated tree.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Consistency Counts For McNeely Pest Control

The North Carolina firm ensures solid quality by focusing on employee training and growth.

The good news this year for McNeely Pest Control is that the firm is building a training center.

The bad news this year for McNeely Pest Control is that the firm is building a training center.

When Pest Management Professional reached out to President Scott McNeely in July, he was trying to get service quotes from electricians and plumbers.

“They don’t call you back,” McNeely told us. “We may be going to the bathroom in the woods.”

Restroom facility planning aside, McNeely has been in the industry long enough — 37 years — to develop some very firm positions on what works and what doesn’t work in pest management.

“There is no silver bullet,” he asserts. “You just have to be consistent; tell people what you are going to do and then do what you say.”

McNeely says his employees are young, driven and his company’s biggest asset. “What we have tried to do is hit the right level of growth so we can financially support that growth internally, without seeking outside revenue,” he says. “We also try to manage the volume of growth so we can maintain a high quality of service and staffing.”

He likens the balance to a teeter-totter: “If we maintain somewhere between a 13 percent and 16 percent growth rate, we can maintain a modest level of profitability and still support our operations effectively.”

Now 59, McNeely has no trouble hiring — and retaining — millennials. His turnover rate is low, with 110 employees fanned out among headquarters and five branch offices.

“Other than Vice President Frank Fowler and a recently hired sales manager, most of our management staff is in its 20s and 30s,” he reports. “I worked with the Boy Scouts and youth groups coming up, and this is just a big extension of that.”

McNeely Pest Control currently offers the core services of general pest control, termite control and urban wildlife. It recently discontinued fumigation because of a lack of demand in the market. The company also offers such add-on services as gutter cleaning and crawlspace encapsulation as a natural progression of its core offerings. But standard treatments for such pests as mosquitoes and bed bugs are keeping employees busy.

“The bed bug issue is continuing to grow in the Southeast, though we no longer see explosive growth,” McNeely says.

In 1980, he graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in entomology and went to work for Wilson Pest Control. He opened McNeely Pest Control in 1999. By 2001, Fowler joined him and then, McNeely says, “We’ve always strived to work hard and work smart. And here we are today.”
