For the last two years 9 of our service offices from various Florida locations have participated in the annual ‘Walk to End Lupus” at the Lowery Park Zoo in Tampa. Truly Nolen’s involvement with the event has personal resonance as District Sales Trainer, Ed Henry’s, wife Michelle was diagnosed with Lupus three years ago. This year there were roughly 150 employees/family members supporting Michelle, with the common goal of raising both money and awareness to combat Lupus. “Michelle’s Mob”, our affectionately named group, was sporting specially designed Truly Nolen Lupus designed in-house by our own Mike Vialapando. Thank you for letting us be a small anchor of support Michelle.
Branch 99 went to work at their local animal shelter in Clearwater putting up a new sign, landscaping, web-wiping and providing much needed pest control service for wasps, ants and loopers. Great times with a Nobel Purpose in mind!
Truly Nolen of Pinellas Park organized a community pet food drive at Largo Feed, located at 210 West Bay Drive, where over 600 pounds of dry food and 100 cans of wet food were collected for the Humane Society of Pinellas Park. The donated food will benefit the humane society’s senior connection program, which assists local senior citizens in the community who would otherwise be unable to afford to keep their pets. Currently, over 60 senior citizens and 100 pets receive donations from this program. A representative from the Humane Society told Truly Nolen volunteers that food collected would help to support this program for approximately two months. Truly Nolen employees organized the drive to commemorate the company’s efforts to give back and improve the local communities in which they serve
Jeff McChesney of Pinellas Park was interviewed by the local ABC affiliate WTSP channel 10. The subject was termites and how to identify, treat and prevent them. Jeff did an amazing job informing the local community about the dangers of termites and how to combat them. A new customer to the Truly Nolen family was gracious enough to allow us the use of her house to film the segment. We were able to show live activity around the house (we are doing her treatment tomorrow btw). Jeff also pointed out steps that homeowners could take to help alleviate termite pressure to their structures.

Subterranean termites take a big bite out of local homes
WHAT: The above photo taken last week depicts exactly what happens when a colony of subterranean termites makes a home out of your house. As roofs collapse, subterranean termites are creating havoc in other homes unbeknownst to their owners.
Why have subterranean termites arrived months ahead of schedule? And what can homeowners do to prepare and prevent?
Jeffery McChesney of Truly Nolen saw a 30 percent increase of these silent destroyers last winter and predicts this year to be even worse. The increase in rain has allowed soil to get saturated, creating the perfect moist conditions for termites to thrive.
Available for interviews upon request, Jeffery has these tips (and more):
- Eliminate or reduce moisture in and around your home.
- Maintain at least an 18-inch gap between your home and soil.
- Trim hedges and other vegetation to prevent ventilation blockages.
