Winding Down ....

...but not really.

We do tend to slow down a bit as we head into the fall - but really, it is more a matter of change.

Instead of running around doing spider sprays and carpenter ants, these days Ross is more likely to be in an attic somewhere looking for bat guano or on a roof doing bat exclusion. Or crawling around under a cottage making sure that mice and other furry friends can't get in. Or dealing with fleas. They seem to be particularly bad this year.

And of course, there are the bees... hornets...wasps.... fun stuff, those! He has the necessary equipment to protect himself from stings but over the years, he's never really needed it - until last week, when - because he's never really needed it, he didn't bother to put it on. Somehow I doubt he'll make that mistake again! He got stung on Friday and spent the weekend with his eyes pretty much swollen shut. Fun times! I would post a picture but I don't think he would appreciate that much :)

He's looking much better now and was back to work yesterday though, so he is available to help you solve your pest problems. Give Cottage Country Pest Control a call at (705)534-7863 or send us an email at and I will be happy to send him in your direction.
