Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Giving Thanks for You!

While we are grateful for YOU everyday – our friends, family and loyal customers of Good News Pest Solutions – this is the one time of year when we get to really shout it from the rooftops. We’re thrilled that every year we get to meet even more new people and spread the Good News of God’s love through our work and our commitment to excellence and preserving this world God created for us.

So today, as much as any day, but even louder, we hope you know that WE ARE THANKFUL FOR YOU! As you enjoy this day of peace with your family and friends, sharing a lot of food, a little football, and a lot of love, we wish God’s blessings upon you.

Going Paperless, Baby!

Going Paperless Baby!Going Paperless, Baby!

For the past 30 years, we’ve gone above and beyond to fulfill our mission in SarasotaBradenton, Punta Gorda, Lakewood Ranch, really the whole Gulf Coast of Florida, as the industry leader, not only in pest control solutions, but in truly green solutions.

That means 100% all natural products. That means Eco-Superior, botanically based products. That means utilizing pest control solutions that are organic – using naturally occurring elements. And most recently, it’s our exclusive No Bite Zones – turning mosquitoes and their babies into vegans, rather than killing them off. For years, that has meant health and safety for you, your family and your pets, not to mention lowering your risk of cancer and other diseases often caused or made worse by the chemicals in most pesticides.

And now, we’ve decided to raise the bar even further. As God’s stewards of his creation, we have to consider not only how to make our customer’s lives and health better, but also take into account the larger scope of what can better preserve the planet as a whole.

So, in keeping with our mission to be the green leader in our industry and to stay at the cutting edge of technology, we’re moving forward with a paperless system for sales agreements, work orders, service tickets and invoices.

You may have already seen some of our sales and service technicians utilizing mobile tablets, and instead of a paper receipt, you probably got it in your email inbox. Well, within the next 2 months, we will be giving all of our highly trained technicians mobile devices and completely eliminating physical paperwork from our system.

Now, we know some of you are ‘old school’ and still look for that piece of paper, especially if you have to submit your invoices or billing for taxes or reimbursement. While we won’t be bringing or leaving any paper with you, the electronic paperwork will still be properly formatted and attached to an email, so you always have the option of printing it out yourself, to hold onto, file, or send up the chain of command.

We’re excited about this new, greener chapter of Good News Pest Solutions and we hope you are too!

A Christmas Prayer for You!

Merry Christmas 2017

It’s Christmas and we love celebrating it here at Good News Pest Solutions! It’s a joy and an honor to be able to share the “Good News” with you. This is our prayer for you this holiday season! (The credit for this goes to the incomparable Bebe Winans!)

My Christmas Prayer

I pray for peace
Blessings and honor
Heaven right earth’s despair
This is my Christmas prayer

For those that grieve
God will bring comfort
Laughter will rapture there
This is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer

I pray for you, yes, I know you do
That your triumph and conquer
Poses the strength you need to bare
This is my Christmas prayer

For those in need
There would be plenty
And each other’s burdens share
Oh this is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer

So let hope fill our hearts, let’s let hope fill our hearts
Shine the light through the dark
All around the world and everywhere
I will pray this Christmas prayer, prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas, this is my Christmas prayer

See I pray that love will rule and reign
And I pray that time will rid the pain of this world
As we learn to trust and care
This is my Christmas prayer
This is my Christmas prayer

Merry Christmas from all of us here at Good News Pest Solutions! We wish you the happiest of days and that the love of God fills your heart to overflowing this holiday season!
