Basking Ridge, N.J.-based Viking Pest Control, an Anticimex company, offers this free spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula, or SLF) removal tool to anyone within its four-state service area of New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland. The instructions note to use the scraper to remove the egg mass, and then deposit the eggs into a plastic bag with hand sanitizer.

Bobbie Terry, owner of Austin, Texas-based The Bug Lady and founder of Women in Pest Control, has had her personalized license plate since 2019. “I was always called ‘The Bug Lady’ by customers, even before I started my own business,” she says. “Some even called me Miss Ladybug!”

For the past three years, the American-Allied Pest Control team has been handing out their patent-pending Flip Flop Flyswatters to new customers and to anyone stopping by their booth at builder shows, home and garden shows and more. Brenda Krabill, who co-owns the Abilene, Texas-based firm with her husband, Brad, notes that “We make them ourselves, and everyone absolutely loves them.”

The branding budget for Xtreme Weed & Pest Solutions is simple: hats, shirts, trucks, jackets, pint glasses. About that last item, explains Launa Benson, who co-owns the Ronan, Mont.-based firm with her husband, Tom, “I know the restaurant owners, and they contacted me about sponsoring the glassware. I love it when customers send us pictures when they are out to supper.”
