Featured Pest: Carpenter Ants

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
685When carpenter ants begin to swarm, it is a sure sign that Spring is near. If you see large winged ants on the outside of your house, no cause for immediate panic. These are reproductive carpenter ants which occupy every tree or wood remnant in our forests. Their presence outside is normal.
If you see winged or non-winged ants inside your house then it is time for concern. At this time of year, any active workers are probably coming from an indoor colony. If winged ants are inside, they probably swarmed from an inside colony. Since Carpenter Ants are the number one wood destroying insect in the Northwest, it is not a good idea to ignore them.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Tulips_Low_Angle_Rows_April_8_2005_4_thumbThe Tulip Festival was inaugurated in 1984 by the Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce. Eventually, the festival became an entity of its own. From just 3 days long at first, the festival is now the full month of April. Take a drive through the lush fields of tulips that are scattered over Skagit Valley or visit several farms that open their fields to the public for an up close view and pictures. The festival now consists of more than just flowers, but from the Mount Vernon Street Fair to the Youth Basketball Tournament and much more. Visit their website for more information on the Pacific Northwest’s one of a kind destination.
