When you partner with Holper’s, we have one piece of advice: Prepare for glory.
The order to prepare for glory is a tale of inspiration we draw from King Leonidas, the king of Sparta, and his battle against King Xerxes and one of the fiercest armies in the history of mankind. It’s a tale of a patriotic army defending their native soil against a ruthless conquerer. In it, we find the secret to effective pest control:
If you know who is coming, when they are coming, and where they are coming, then victory is yours for the taking no matter the odds that stack up against you.
In the eternally famous story of 300, King Leonidas quite literally stands in the gap for the nation of Greece. He leads 300 of his personal guards in a battle against an estimated 300,000 Persian soldiers who demanded that Greece submit to the kingdom of Persia. Greece refused to submit, and therefore elected to fight.
Leonidas was woefully outnumbered but fervently prepared. He held a single advantage by walling up in the narrow costal pass of Thermopylae, also known as the Hot Gates. In that narrow pass King Leonidas and his 300 men were the last stand between the Persian army and the peaceful fields of Greece. In that pass they anticipate the arrival of the Persians and leverage that expectation to defeat Xerxes and his 300,000 men, authoring one of the most inspiring underdog stories we’ve ever heard.
King Leonidas’ advantage over the Persians is no different than the advantage you hold over the ruthless army of pests that invade your home. Leonidas didn’t know how many were coming or what they were like. He only knew when and where they were coming, and that was enough to stand in the gap and protect the state of peace in his home. You too can know when and where pests are coming, and Holper’s is here to stand in the gap with you.
It’s All About the Seasons
While most pest control companies will be quick to tell you about the thousands of species of ants, rats, and bees, Holper’s knows that you only need to know one thing: the weather. Thumb through your calendar and look up at the sky and you’ll have all the preparation you need to know what is coming, when they are coming, and where they are coming. Study the seasons and you too can stand in the gap to protect your home against an army of ruthless pests.
The truth is, certain pests will only enter your home at specific times. Ants will only draw near when the weather is hot and dry as they seek moisture and food. Rats will only draw near when the weather is cold as they seek shelter, warmth, and sustenance. Each pest has a plan and a purpose for entering your home. Like King Leonidas, you might be outnumbered but your advantage is your will and wisdom.
