 STOP SHARING YOUR HOME WITH UNWANTED PESTS
Cooper Pest Solutions

Cooper Pest Solutions would like to offer Bucks County Alive residents in Bucks, Montgomery, and Hunterdon Counties a $50.00 discount on their spring and summer pest control services. Call 215-493-0610 today for a FREE no-obligation pest evaluation. Just mention coupon code 14-E114 to save $50.00 on any seasonal pest program or an annual home service.

Here are some pest prevention tips to keep unwanted pests away from your home:

  • Eliminate standing water, which is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests.
  • Seal up entry points: cracks along windows and doors, and holes in window screens, especially near light fixtures where insects congregate at night.
  • Trim back shrubs and tree limbs that are touching the side of the home; these will create a bridge for insects to get closer to the home and even inside.
  • Remove twigs or fallen tree branches that will attract carpenter ants and termites. Also, keep firewood stored up off the ground and away from the exterior of the home.
  • Repair fascia and rotted roof shingles; some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
  • Store garbage in sealed containers and dispose of it regularly.

 HELP FOXY!
Fund Foxy's Surgeries, Animal Lifeline

In October, Animal Lifeline rescued "Foxy", a two year old Pomeranian used for breeding, from a deplorable puppy mill in WV. Foxy had been born with deformed hind legs and was doomed to a lifetime of painfully dragging them behind her as she tried to walk. She needed special surgery not available in WV, so Animal Lifeline transported her to PA. Thanks to the wonderful folks at CARES and Doylestown Animal Medical Clinic, Foxy had her first operation in February and is thriving. Her second surgery is just around the corner. Please consider making a donation to help ensure Foxy can romp happily into her new life. The total for her veterinary care could reach into the thousands.

 MY MILLION DOLLAR MOM - A LOCAL FILM
My Million Dollar Mom, Alzheimer's

This film is in the development stage and is raising money through a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo. Their goal is to raise $29,029 by May 18, 2015.
