Sean and Shawn in Washington, D.C>

Sean Snowdon, Pisgah Pest Control's Chief Operations Officer, and Shawn White, Chief Executive Officer, attended the National Pest Management Association's legislative day event in Washington, D.C. this month. Mr. Snowdon serves as an at-large director for the North Carolina Pest Management Association for the western region of North Carolina. Mr. White serves on the recruitment and retention committee for the National Pest Management Association. Together with pest control industry leaders from across the United States, they met with senators and representatives in Congress and their staffs to discuss the importance of structural pest control and how they could best help us protect the health, property, and businesses we serve.

Why are carpenter bees a cause for concern?



Carpenter bees pose a threat as they bore holes into sound wood and sometimes decaying wood. While this may not be problematic in a forest setting, it becomes a significant issue when the wood is utilized in constructing structures such as porches, decks, or entire houses. The presence of numerous holes in your porch, for example, is far from an ideal situation.

During late spring or early summer, carpenter bees lay eggs in the holes they drill, making this period critical for effective treatment. Larvae and pupae then develop within sealed cells throughout early summer, leading to adult bees emerging in late summer. These bees subsequently revisit the same tunnels for wintering during the winter months, and this pattern tends to escalate each year.

In the dynamic world of pest control, where trust and reliability are paramount, Pisgah Pest Control stands out as a beacon of integrity and commitment.

In an industry where transparency is key, honesty is our guiding light. We understand that facing pest issues can be stressful, and our clients deserve clear communication and honest assessments. Even when the truth may be difficult, we prioritize transparency. From explaining the scope of pest problems to providing accurate estimates and timelines, our commitment to honesty builds lasting relationships based on trust.

5 Star Service - From the First Call to the Last Service:

Our well-trained team is committed to providing extraordinary service, earning customer satisfaction, and loyalty." This core purpose serves as a compass guiding us in our daily interactions, both within our team and in our relationships with clients.
