Zion National Park: Angels Landing

by Kendall Clements, Escape Properties

Looking for a hike that's TOUGH, FUN, and amazingly beautiful? Then the Angels Landing hike is the hike for you!

Let me explain a little bit about this hike in Zion National Park: it is about 5 miles to reach the pinnacle of this hike, the first two miles are paved trails to make it easy, but then the last half mile is hiking up a rock with support chains until you reach the top! Most of the trail is always sunny, so make sure you bring your sun screen! Also, this hike takes about 4-5 hours for the average person to complete, so it is suggested that you do not start this hike later in the evening. This hike is a great early morning hike! Permits are not required to hike this!

In Zion National Park, there are so many unique wildlife that you will see if you go there and hike the hikes. The sights are a natural wonder as well! With the unique weather here in Southern Utah, the nature in the area is so unique and beautiful! So if you enjoy the idea of a really strenuous hike that will leave you tired after, this is the hike for you!

Best St. George, Utah Pizza Joints

by Jeremy Larkin

When going on vacation to an unfamiliar town, It’s always easy to call Domino's or Pizza Hut and just get pizza that you always have delivered to where you are staying. But then one wonders, where is a good pizza place in St.George?

Not saying that Domino's or Pizza Hut isn't good pizza, but there are so many unique pizza places in St.George that if you were deciding on pizza, you might want to try these places to try something different!

The Pizza Factory: One of the oldest pizza places in St.George. There are two locations of Pizza Factory: one on Red Cliffs Drive and one on the Boulevard. The one on the Boulevard is the oldest Pizza Factory ever! There is also a Pizza Factory Express on Sunset in St.George for a quick order of their delicious food! They are known for their homemade pizzas and their delicious bread twists! Order one huge pizza for the family to share, or individual pizzas for each person to have their own! www.stgeorgepizzafactory.com



Peir 49 Pizza: Known for their San Francisco style pizzas! Certain pizzas have a sourdough crust that is so delicious! Their different gourmet pizzas will make you dying to try every single one of their pizzas! http://www.pier49.com/​


The Brick Oven: Has a very authentic taste to their pizzas due to the fact that the oven is an old fashioned brick oven. All of their pizzas are cooked to perfection, and will taste like your eating pizza from an old town Italian restaurant! www.brickovenrestaurants.com


Roys: An Italian restaurant that uses only locally grown produce to make the more quality food. They have been in business for 25+ years, and they have always been known for excellent food, service, and atmosphere! www.royspizzaandpasta.com/


Riggatti's:  These guys are the "newest" comers to the St. George pizza market, and they ARE SO GOOD! Honestly, it's my favorite pizza joint any more - really. They wood-fire their product and cook it thin. It just kind of melts in your mouth. Check them out here: http://riggattis.com/ 

No matter how you slice it - yes, pun intended, pizza is just plain good stuff, and St. George has some pretty darn good offerings. Still not sure? Shoot Jeremy an email directly and he'll be glad to chat: larkin@gostgeorge.com.  Enjoy!

Brigham Young Winter Home

by Kendall Clements, Escape Properties

The Brigham Young Home in St. George is trully a great local piece of history! Much of St. George's Euro-American roots come from the LDS Mormons that traveled across the country to settle in Utah. With them settling here, they are a lot of our culture and we have a lot of historic landmarks from them, and they left some pretty awesome old houses for us modern folks!

              

One of these homes was the Brigham Young Home. This home was where the 2nd Modern Day Prophet of the LDS church stayed over the winter the last few years of his life to enjoy the warmer weather (than the cold weather in the Salt Lake area) and to help with the construction of the Temple and Tabernacle. This home is still intact and is very pretty to see! Don't just take my word for it; come to St. George and see it for yourself!! https://www.lds.org/locations/brigham-young-winter-home​

St. George Pests! What is Integrated Pest Management?

by Carson Hunt, H&& Pest Control

Pest control, everyone needs it, but what is IPM? Well, here in St. George the temperature is warming and the bugs are starting to move around. Whether you own a business or want protection for you home, the most effective and green friendly method of keeping pests outside is to choose a pest management professional that follows an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan.

IPM is a process involving common sense and sound solutions for treating and controlling pests. These solutions incorporate three basic steps: 1) inspection, 2) identification and 3) treatment.  Treatment options vary from sealing cracks and removing food and water sources to pesticide treatments when necessary.

Most importantly, IPM requires a partnership between you and your licensed pest professional. In working together, you can have the peace of mind that your business and home will be protected against pest-related health and property threats.

IPM Treatment and Inspection Techniques

When it comes to pest management, there are very few “standard operating protocols.” Instead, your pest professional will assess YOUR unique situation to develop a comprehensive cure to your pest problem, which could include any of the following techniques:

  • Applying pesticides
  • Using various trapping devices
  • Emptying trash containers frequently
  • Keeping trash containers clean both inside and out
  • Keeping full trash bags tied securely and placed in outdoor garbage storage areas
  • Cleaning outdoor garbage areas to remove debris
  • Using tight fitting lids and/or closed dumpsters to store garbage outdoors.
  • Emptying sink strainers and running the garbage disposal frequently to prevent food build up in the drain area
  • Washing dishes immediately after meals to prevent pests from consuming food residue on dishes
  • Cleaning food particles and grease from kitchen appliances (toasters, ovens, microwaves, ovens, stoves, and refrigerators)
  • Storing pet food in re-sealable containers
  • Limiting the amount of time that pet food and water dishes are left out
  • Storing food products in plastic snap-lid containers or kept in the refrigerator
  • Vacuuming and sweeping floors and furniture regularly, especially around eating areas such as kitchens and living rooms
  • Cleaning food storage areas and shelves regularly, where pests may be harboring
  • Sealing gaps around plumbing, wall outlets and switch plates to prevent pests from migrating from infested units to others, and much more!

 By doing your part to fulfill the Integrated Pest Management plan you are taking an active approach to keep pests from walking through your doors.  More than just a pest "band-aid" that doesn't address the problem, IPM works as a cure.  We at H&H Pest Management believe in the IPM process and we believe that by working together, your home or business will be properly treated and pest free.

 For more about IPM and to see videos of IPM in action check out whatisIPM.org.  As always feel free to contact us at H&H for any questions regarding your pest control concerns.
