Summer is a great time to entertain visiting friends and family. There are some guests, however, that you shouldn’t allow into your home — pests such as ants, roaches, rats and termites.
Pest infestations are more than a nuisance. It is important to protect your family from disease due to food contamination and allergens and your property from wood and foundation damage.
If spring cleaning is on your to-do list this month, it’s important to work safely, whether you’re simply clearing winter debris from your lawn or tackling a major renovation project.
Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you are protecting yourself, your family and the environment as you check off the chores on your list.

With so much at stake, how do you make the right decision? This information from the Paint Quality Institute can help you make the right decision.
