We update and change websites on this page, please check back often. If you have a good recommendation for any topic listed below, please send us the link- we may use it here!
National Pesticide Information Center
This link will take you to the City of Reno Approved Tree List. Click on the RUFC Approved Trees. These trees are specimens that have been known to do well in our area. Most trees on the list can be seen at Idlewild Park or UNR for a full grown specimen reference.
This site has an excellent search for picking a tree for a certain area. Enter your requirements and most of the time it can bring up a tree that would do well in that spot.
Also check out the Urban Tree Key on this site, it helps ID trees by leaf or needles.

BED BUG INFORMATION CENTER
We have been asked if we do any services for Bed Bugs- no we do not provide bed bug services. We do not treat for interior pests such as Bed Bugs, Cockroaches, Ants, Spiders, etc. We can provide recommendations for other companies that provide that service but our company is too small to handle such labor intensive services such as bed bugs. Most home owners need many services to deal with bed bugs and we do not have enough technicians to deal with that work load.
Please understand that once you have them usually it can take a lot of time and services to control their population. It is a collaborative effort between the home owner and Pest Control Operator to really be able to deal with Bed Bugs properly.
We recommend contacting a large national pest control company for Bed Bug services.
Here are some websites, books, etc. that have information on Bed Bugs both preventative and curative that help the home owner get the information needed for what they need to do as well.
