Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
This summer has been one of the hottest and driest summers since 1970 according to meteorologists around the globe. All the dense dry heat is great motivation for critters of all kinds to be on the hunt for water and nourishment. Insects such as earwigs, roaches, and ants are all main contenders in the race for survival. Gopher Patrol has been offering pest sprays for spiders, ants, and other crawling insects in 6 different counties for over 17 years. To protect homes this upcoming fall they suggest preventative measures for the very invasive spiders and rodents that may be looking for resting places for the soon to come cool weather.
A few of the specials running for the months of September and October are:
• $99 for an initial exterior pest spray This spray acts as a deterrent as well as an on site killer for the spiders trying to invade housing. Interior treatment pricing is based on square footage.
• $125 off of initial Gopher, Rodent, Squirrel control The initial gopher control is important for maintaining and controlling activity taking over front and backyards all throughout Southern California. Gopher Patrol believes that getting to the route of your problem is key. After a thorough inspection we will identify all points of entry by rodents and offer a plan to finally rid home for good of rats or mice. Instead of searching out a tree to nest in, during fall squirrels may make themselves at home in the attic – setting up leaves and fluff and getting comfortable out of the reach of predators.
• $65 for bi-monthly pest control
The bi-monthly pest service is optimal for properties that may have reoccurring activity but not severe amounts.
Eco Friendly options are available for all of the above mentioned services. Gopher Patrol strives to maintain environmentally safe opportunities to customers all throughout Southern California.

NEUHAUSEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 09/23/14 -- Tyco Retail Solutions (www.tycoretailsolutions.com), a leading provider of retail performance and security solutions, today announced the availability of advanced in-store analytics to deliver added value to its global retail customer base of more than 185,000 stores. Tyco has integrated its Traffic Intelligence solution with RetailNext, an innovator in Big Data solutions enabling retailers to monitor, analyze, and quickly act upon shopper behavior within the store environment. This powerful combination, which leverages Tyco's broad multi-sensor portfolio of Traffic devices and RetailNext's advanced in-store analytics platform, enables retailers to capture and interpret key metrics to optimize their store operations and drive sales.
In e-commerce retail it is standard practice to analyze how shoppers behave online, where they go, what they view, what they place in their basket, and ultimately what they buy. Traditional stores can now have this level of visibility as well. Tyco's appliance-based system, which can potentially leverage retailers' existing video infrastructure, collects and correlates real-time data to help brick-and-mortar retailers identify actionable opportunities to refine their advertising, merchandising, and promotional initiatives to improve overall profitability by focusing on metrics beyond the front door.
The innovative analytics offering enables Tyco to efficiently support large stores with many monitoring points, where an appliance-based solution is more cost effective than video analytics smart devices. To satisfy retailers' diverse needs, Tyco extends traffic analysis beyond the front door with four new packaged traffic applications focused on advanced in-store traffic intelligence:
- Interior Counting to analyze conversion rates, optimize traffic-to-associate ratios and measure in-store marketing effectiveness
- Path-to-Purchase kinetic mapping to improve store layouts and increase profit-per-square-foot
- Gender Demographic Breakdown of Traffic to customize store displays and product mixes
- Dwell Analysis to optimize promotional display placement, planogram effectiveness and product assortment
