Summer is Vacation Time…
But Not for Pests!

Summer is the time of year when the weather starts warming up, and we find ourselves spending more time outdoors gardening, bar-b-cueing, entertaining friends and family, and going on vacations. Whether you are traveling or enjoying time at home, summer should be a relaxing time of year. However, you may notice that there are other life-forms enjoying the summertime climate as well.


As the weather starts to warm, insects such as ants, spiders, earwigs, fleas, bees, and yellow-jackets start to kick things into high gear: mating, foraging, and multiplying. All of this activity becomes more apparent as we begin to share the great outdoors together.


These uninvited guests can perhaps include a skunk running through the patio or a raccoon knocking over the garbage cans. Killroy Pest Control can give you tips on how to discourage these visitors. Killroy can also solve the problem for you.


The services your Killroy and Sensitive Solutions™ pest management professionals have been providing for you throughout the winter and spring will have helped to keep things from getting out of control once the summer temperatures heat up. And remember, if you ever have a problem between services, please call us, and we will be there for you with a solution.


Killroy is now Diamond Certified!

Killroy Termite Specialist Mike Ledesma

It is with great excitement and pride that Killroy Pest Control, Inc. can announce that we have been selected as a Diamond Certified company! This designation holds a great deal of value due to the fact that Killroy has been "Independently Rated as Highest Quality". The 4-6 week interview process is very extensive, as Diamond Certified takes a totally unbiased, blind testing approach, taking a company's total customer base going back from one to four years.

They randomly select over 100 customers asking their honest opinion of the company in question. The company must receive positive responses in more than 90% in order to be Diamond Certified.

We want to thank our wonderful family of customers for their support and business over the years, and it is our goal to continue delivering service designated as "Highest in Quality"!

Mike Flowers Sr. - General Manager

Killroy Pest Control General Manager Mike Flowers

This being my first article for our newsletter, I thought I would give you a little background. I have been married 39 years to my best friend, Shirley. Together we have a wonderful family of four children, 14 grandchildren, and as of this month, a soon-to-be great grandchild. We complete our lives with our two Chihuahuas, Princess and Harley.

I have been with Killroy Pest Control for 15 years, and only wish it had been for my entire 39 years in the industry!

As the General Manager, I really look forward to this time of year when the temperatures heat up and so does business. This is a direct result of you, our loyal customers referring all of your neighbors, friends, and family to Killroy. And for that, we are forever grateful.

This is also a time when we discover what the season's "hot" pests will be. Even though ants, spiders, and the "usual suspects" are active, there is always a dominant insect that makes an initial impact, or an encore appearance after years of falling off the radar. A recent example would be fleas. For as long as I can remember, they were the predominant pest of the summer. Then, with the advent of products like Frontline, fleas disappeared for about ten years. However, over the past two years, we are seeing a resurgence in their activity.

If you are having a flea problem, or any pest problems, give us a call. We will make sure they are treated effectively.

Again, thank you for making Killroy Pest Control what it is today -- your pest control Company!

Lawns Need Killroy, Too!


Killroy offers several special services throughout the year. We can arrange a "weed and feed" treatment of your lawn areas. This will not only energize your turf with a high nitrogen fertilizer, but we will also selectively take care of those broadleaf invaders. The combination of these applications will give your lawn new life and a wonderful place to share summer fun!

If you are interested in any of our specialty services, please contact us at 888-545-5769 or visit our website at www.Killroy.com.
