Scottsdale is located in central Arizona in the heart of the lush Sonoran Desert. It enjoys an average of 330 days of sun per year and the median temperature is about 72.6 degrees year-round. Combine this fabulous climate with over 200 golf courses within the greater Phoenix area, including the well-known Troon and TPC courses, and you can understand why it has earned the title of Golfer’s Paradise. In addition to golf, the city offers healthy outdoor pursuits for everyone. There are over 58 miles of public bike paths and 40 miles of shared hiking, riding and horse trails. These are in addition to the fabulous walking trails and sidewalks that are part of the design of every planned community. Old Town Scottsdale/Downtown Scottsdale The original downtown area, known as “Old Town” has kept the character of the small storefronts, narrow streets, and has embraced the art community. Enjoy the Art Walk on Thursday evenings when the galleries stay open later for your enjoyment. In addition to the art, Old Town is home to many boutiques and some of the best and hottest restaurants in town. You will also find the Scottsdale Museum of the West, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art as well as the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall, which is home to many cultural and food events throughout the year. Just over the canal is the famous Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and the Scottsdale Waterfront neighborhood, which has blossomed over the past decade. Here, you will find spectacular luxury condo developments, like Optima Camelview and the Scottsdale Waterfront Residences, as well as single-family homes in the surrounding area.

Urban and rural; nature and culture; playtime and downtime: Kelowna isn’t just one destination. It’s a whole bunch of them, located in one uniquely beautiful place. Relatively undiscovered, Kelowna is never too crowded despite playing host to visitors the world over. The Kelowna International Airport, one of the busiest airports in Canada, easily connects to major North American cities.  Kelowna has miles of beautiful parkland and several sandy beaches which provide wonderful opportunities for boating, swimming, water-skiing, windsurfing and fishing. As well, you can hit the links at one of our many golf courses nine months out of the year. In cooler months, our snow-capped mountains and pine filled forests are a haven for skiers, boarders, snowmobilers and outdoor adventurists of all types and levels.   Pest Control Kelown The mild, rainy ocean climate has long been the envy of Canadians looking to escape the cold of more eastern provinces. But the conditions that make Kelowna appealing to humans are exactly the same that make it an ideal home for pests who wouldn’t be able to survive the cold dry winters further east.   The dense vegetation that covers much of Kelowna is home to a wealth of wildlife and associated pests that thrive in the temperate climate. As ONT’s primary gateway to Pacific trade, Kelowna harbours also offer some unique challenges for pest control and require continuous monitoring and prevention to ensure that infestations don’t take hold.   There’s nothing quite as frustrating as a pest problem. They can become a huge issue, whether you’re a homeowner or a business manager. That’s why Natural Pest Solutions offers pest control services in Kelowna and the surrounding areas like. If you find unwanted rodents, insects, or other wildlife on your property, give us a call. We offer flexible hours so you…
