  • Cockroaches are a typical household pest that we see every year.  There are several different species of cockroaches, and today’s information focusing on the wood cockroach.

    Wood cockroaches live under loose bark, in cavities of fallen or dying trees, or in stumps. They are natives of moist woodland habitats where they feed on decaying organic matter.

    These cockroaches are accidental invaders in homes and buildings in and around wooded areas.  They are especially active during their summer mating season.

  • Everyone who joins the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation with a $10 donation will receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees through the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

    The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting in each member’s area, which falls between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6-12 inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.
