Now Serving Peterborough and the Kawarthas

.... in addition to, not instead of Midland, Orillia, Muskoka and the surrounding areas, that is.

At this point, we are spending our time here, there and everywhere - I attend Trent U in Peterborough, so we are here for a couple of days a week; the rest of the time we try to be at home in Victoria Harbour. And of course, Ross can be wherever he needs to be - and he's the one that is important; I'm just the geek.

So - if you should happen to have a mouse, spider, bat, bee, carpenter ant, bedbug, flea - what did I miss? ... oh well.... pest problem (other than your kids; those we can't help you with), drop us an email, or call us at

(705)534-7863 (Midland area)
or (705)741-6245 (Peterborough)

Both phones have answering machines that are checked regularly; we will get back to you.... but email is even faster; love my Blackberry! The only time you won't get an immediate response to email is if I happen to be in a class or asleep at the time.

'Tis the Season

No, not THAT season - not quite yet, although it is coming faster than you think.

But now is a very good time to give a bit of thought to ensuring that you've done what is needed about pest control to prepare for winter.

Most importantly - deal with any bat issues!

Bats are great - outside - but inside, they can cause HUGE amounts of damage. Bat guano harbours mites and other parasites - and on top of that, it STINKS.

You do not want bats inside your home or cottage.

And this is the best time of year to get any bat issues taken care of.

Bats typically leave for winter nesting spots in fall - and once they are out, the process of clean up, and preventing their return - is much easier, and thus cheaper for you.

If you have bats in your belfry, or in your home, garage or cottage, now is a very good time to call Cottage Country Pest Control at (705)534-7863.
