Cockroach Man Makes Front Page Of Google

Goodle Doodle of The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

Have any of you been to Google.com today? If not, hurry over there and take a look at Google’s latest “doodle” logo. In place of the regular multi-colored text, today on July 3, Google doodled a cockroach coming through a door. He is even donning “press hat”, bow tie and a briefcase. A little odd, don’t you think? Every once and a while Google will roll out a new doodle on their front page, typically to commemorate the birthday of a historical figure or the anniversary date of an important event. June 3rd, 2013 would mark the 130th the birthday of Franz Kafka, a German writer and novelist known for… Read More

Satisfaction Guaranteed

The two most dangerous words in business are “satisfaction” and “guaranteed”. If you put them together you have a potentially very destructive policy. Using them lightly can be about the same as digging your own grave. Your epitaph would read something along the lines of “They guaranteed it. They couldn’t deliver”. As a business owner you are basically promising that your product or service is so good that if your customer is in any way dissatisfied they are entitled to complete retribution. It doesn’t even matter if the product or service actually worked. The dinner plate may have been cooked exactly to order, met every expectation, but the service may… Read More

dead roaches

  As pest control operators, we encounter many bizarre pest situations almost daily.   Whether it’s a house crawling with roaches,    maggot stuffed Oreo cookies,     or a spider’s nest crawling with it’s young,     these experiences will stick with us for our lifetimes.   Spider Living in Women’s Ear   A story that has been sticking with me comes to us from China. A woman who was seeking medical attention went into China’s Changsha Central Hospital because she felt a burning and itching inside her ear. To her horror, and the horror of her doctors, a spider was found living in her ear canal. The women’s… Read More

Indian Town Being Invaded By Venomous Spiders, And Witch Doctors

Raise your hand if you’ve seen the movie “Arachnophobia”. Well, I have. Once. My first time watching it was immediately my last. It’s one of those movies that messes with your mind for the next several days. Your skin itches a little bit more throughout the day. You check your towel before drying off after a shower. Maybe you shake out your clothes before getting dressed because you never know. You never when at what point you’re going to run across one of those little buggers. It’s just you. You’re minding your business. Your sitting down for lunch at your kitchen table to enjoy a ham sandwich with some ranch… Read More

Scorpions On The Road

Italian automaker Fiat is making a concerted marketing push in the United States. Just take a look at this year’s Super Bowl commercial. Among Fiat’s new lineup of 500 series cars is a logo that we wholeheartedly endorse. Did you notice the super model’s…neck? Take another look at the ad if you’d like to get a better look at the….uhh….tattoo. The scorpion logo can actually been seen in various locations on the vehicle. Even here… While the country of Italy is not known for its plethora of scorpion species, FIAT will probably be the one to put Italian scorpions on the map.

Reindeer Saves Rat’s Life, Spreads Holiday Cheer

“…But do you recall? The most famous reindeer of all…Shooter The Good Deed Reindeer!” Err! OK, so he may not be the most famous, but he certainly is the most thoughtful and service oriented toward rodent-kind. Shooter, resident of the Pocatello Zoo in Idaho, was seen by zoo staff awkwardly handling his water trough. The large animal, which at times can be a bit overbearing for many of the staffers, eventually was able to dip his head and gently retrieve a rat from his barrel. Shooter then laid the distressed rodent on the floor and proceeded to nudge him with his hoof until he had the strength to scurry away… Read More

If You Were Ever Going to Feel Sorry For Cockroaches, Its Now

While a number of venomous animals paralyze prey as live food for their young, the Emerald Cockroach wasp is slightly different, in that it initially leaves it’s cockroach victim mobile; and modifies it’s victim’s behavior in a very unique way. As early as the 1940s, female Emerald Cockroach wasps have been used as natural exterminators, against cockroach pests. When it attacks, this natural pest control provider will sting the cockroach two times, delivering a powerful venom. In 2003, a study showed that the wasp is able to sting directly into specific ganglia of the cockroach, paralyzing the front legs. This strike allows for a second venomous sting, which is delivered… Read More

The Golden Rule of Business

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Or was it the scout motto? DO a good turn daily. Not quite what I am looking for… Maybe it’s just good karma. How do you say thanks to such a great blog post about you or your company? A very satisfied customer Bulwark Exterminating posted this wonderful post about our Charlotte Pest Control Service.
