|Mike at the Burrow Blocker booth - CASH 2013|
Last week, Mike and I became known as the "Squirrel People," at the C.A.S.H. 34th Annual Conference on School Facilities. We had a great time meeting superintendents, facilities managers and maintenance supervisors for California school districts.
Ground squirrels are a serious problem for schools. As we all know, kids run across fields for their sports and just for fun. The last thing anyone wants to see is them tripping in a ground squirrel hole. We met people from schools that shared how students have sprained their ankles and even broken their legs because of ground squirrel holes.
What really impressed me is the number of school districts that are getting away from using baits, poisons and gases. They care about the environment and the safety of their students. Many use or plan to use the Burrow Blocker to get rid of the ground squirrels and fill in their hazardous holes. It kind of all goes together - caring for the environment, safety, and encouraging our children to enjoy the freedom of running outdoors.
Maybe my next project should have something to do with Mike wearing a squirrel costume. It may be at the next trade show or in a video. Let me know what you'd like to see.
