Have pests bugging you in your home or business? Searching for companies in the Arizona area that can help you get rid of pests and bugs? Need a bi monthly service or even a termite inspection a home you just bought in Arizona?
We have two Trusted Pest Control companies for you to check out.
And the other offers a full pest control services and solutions in the Phoenix, AZ and Tucson, AZ area that covers the following bugs including termites.
Another great Pest and Termite Control Company for the Metro area we found is a company that has been providing termite inspections in the state of Arizona since 1969 and has completed the most termite inspections in the state with their records department for recording that information.
One of the ways we determine best services providers to share with our audience on AZCharged is the companies have to have a great online presence with positive reviews, social media outlets to connect, and great ratings online with sites like the BBB, and in their case RealSelf (a BBB of sorts for plastic surgeons).
And if you think that is good, you haven’t seen nothing yet. One of the reasons we decided to highlight Ciao Bella Cosmetic Surgery in Scottsdale besides opening their new location is they have over 210 reviews currently with 4.9 review rating (practically 200+ 5 star reviews) on BirdEye that have been verified as well.
And on Google they have over 100 verified reviews with a 4.7 rating of those reviews!!
As you can see by their online reviews and social media channels they are a trustworthy option in Scottsdale if you need a plastic surgeon for cosmetic surgeon services.
If you would like to call them and schedule a consultation call them today at their Scottsdale location:
Scottsdale 22455 N. Miller Rd. B100 Scottsdale, AZ 85255 480.686.8121

If you are a looking for the best Restaurants in Phoenix whether you are a local or on a business trip one of the top ways to find a place you should go is Google or Yelp and check out the reviews.
I just went to Yelp Phoenix and found this list of the top five restaurants where two have well over 1000 reviews.
Below I break down the top 5 restaurants per yelp and went a little bit more in depth.
Per yelp.. the #1 Restaurant in Phoenix is Little Miss BBQ…
I have been here and have to say their BBQ is great hands down however you have to make sure you get there at the right times since once they run out of BBQ they close down for the day.
The location is a bit shady off University however, their establishment is authentic and makes you forget you are in a bad part of Phoenix and gives you that backyard feel and like you find a gem BBQ location.
On google they have 4.8 rating out of 357 reviews so Google reviewers also agree this is the best barbecue restaurant.
Little Miss BBQ got it’s start as a competitive barbecue team. They are open Tuesday- Saturday from 11:00AM until 4:00PM (or until sold out) so get there early.
The Dressing Room is #3 on the Yelp Phoenix list of the best restaurants
They also have 11 google reviews that are all 5 stars! They are known for Global street food, craft cocktails & draft brews in a roomy, art-driven bar with two large patios.
They are located at 220 E. Roosevelt Street in Phoenix and are open Mon-Thurs from 11-10, Friday/Sat 11-11 and Sunday 11-10.
Some of their great menu items are the All Day Burrito, TJ Taco, and Cold Soba Salad. Also, per yelp as of this post they are only 8 weeks old and opened this year in January.
Ten Handcrafted American Fare & Spirits is #4
Again Google confirms with 4.6 reviews out of 45 reviews left. They are known for Craft cocktails & inventive versions of familiar American dishes star at this stylish restaurant.

The number one thing people care about with the Arizona Lottery is what were the numbers. If you want to check your Arizona Lottery numbers and see if you win check them here.
Regardless of what game you play the pick, post, scratchers, or powerball the only thing everyone wants to know about the Arizona Lottery is what were the numbers to see if they won.
The 2nd most important thing people want to know after the Arizona Lottery shows the numbers is how much did they win if they hit with one of the games.
And lastly, where can they collect their Arizona Lottery winnings and what are the tax implications.
Here’s a breakdown of each game, the rules, and how to win with the Arizona Lottery.
Arizona Lottery the Pick
The Pick is Arizona’s own jackpot game. The jackpot starts at $1 million and keeps growing until it finds a lucky winner. Play today for just $1!
You can either choose a quick pick and the computer picks your numbers or you can choose your own 6 numbers from 1 to 44. You can play those numbers for up to 10 days by marking the number of draws box on the slip.
You can add the “EXTRA” add on game for $1 to $2 option.
You can buy your Arizona Lottery Tickets at over 2800 lottery retailers like CVS. And see if you won every Wednesday and Saturday evenings. Sales stop on draw nights at 6:59 p.m. Arizona time from the second Sunday in March through the first Saturday in November and at 7:59 p.m. Arizona time from the first Sunday in November through the second Saturday in March.
You can check your numbers on their website, at the retailer you purchased the tickets from, or by calling 480-829-7425 (Phoenix), 520-325-9141 (Tucson) or toll free at 800-499-3798
There are 4 ways to win the pick
Arizona Lottery Scratchers
There are over 30 Arizona lottery scratchers games and they all have different top prizes ranging from dollars to millions.
The Arizona lottery has a really great page that covers all the current scratchers and their rules, how to win, payouts and more here.
Arizona Lottery Powerball
The Powerball is one of the most popular Arizona Lottery games and mostly because it starts at $40 million and then makes national news when it gets over the $100 million + range as more and more people join their employer powerball pools and play the lottery for the first time because of all the of the buzz and hype that spreads.
With the Powerball you can either use a quick pick computer generated number or choose 5 white numbers from 1 to 69 plus one red powerball number 1 to 26 or a combo of sorts.
Players can multiply up to ten times their non-jackpot prizes with the enhanced Powerball Power Play multiplier. These prizes can be multiplied 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10* times. Winning the Match 5 prize (all 5 white balls) still pays $2 million regardless of the multiplier number drawn.
*The Power Play 10 (10X) feature will be available when the annuitized jackpot amount is $150,000,000 or less.
Ask your retailer for a Trio!, and you’ll get one Mega Millions, one Powerball, and one The Pick ticket. Three big jackpots in one quick purchase!
Again you can buy your ticket from more than 2,800 Arizona lottery retailers and the drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday nights with stopped sales at 6:59pm Arizona Mountain Standard Time. (we don’t move clocks back and forth)
You can buy tickets up to 7:59pm from the first Sunday in November up until the second Saturday in March.
Checking your Arizona Lottery numbers or claiming your winnings is the same as the Pick.
How to Claim Arizona Lottery Winnings
Retailers where you purchased your tickets can redeem prized up to $100 and may redeem prizes up to $599. If you won $600 or more you can claim those winnings at the Arizona Lottery office by mail or in person.
If you win the jackpot, you have 60 days to choose a 30-year annuity or a lump-sum cash payment of approximately half the amount of the announced jackpot. If you do not select cash or annuity within the 60 days, your prize will be paid as an annuity.

UPDATED, April 2016 Backpage was Shut Down! – see bottom of article for update and we wouldn’t recommend using Backpage for anything any longer and stick to Craigslist!
If you are looking for another place online to target people in Phoenix, AZ to buy and sell online similar to Craigslist Phoenix you need to check out Backpage Phoenix.
In 2011, Backpage was the second largest classified ad listing service on the Internet in the United States after Craigslist.
Also, there are some really great categories on Backpage Phoenix they get a lot of traffic for vs. Craigslist like Guns, Pets, Autos, Jobs and Furniture.
Backpage use to be part of the Phoenix New Times but have developed independently again into their own site and entity and still get a ton of local Phoenix website traffic.
Most of their categories are free to use or post on but then they have some upgraded features if you want to post your businesses products or services.
This can be another great way for you to advertise your business, get a job, make money flipping items on Backpage or getting more exposure to anything you want to sell.
Also, it’s like an online flea market or garage sale of sorts where you can find rare items or services that are offered locally in the Phoenix, AZ metro market.
The one caveat to Backpage and many online classifieds sites is there are dating sections or in Backpage’s case a bad section but in 2017 they announced they are removing that section because of the scrutiny they received over the years.
Backpage vs. Craigslist
Backpage vs Craigslist in the US you can see is a bit far off however Backpage is still a top 500 website via Alexa.com an Amazon web stat company.
Backpage Phoenix Guns
Another big advantage of Backpage is being able to buy and sell guns in which a state like Arizona is really big on especially with cool place to go shooting like Scottsdale Gun Club.
Arizona is a very gun law friendly state and is open carry so there are a lot of gun enthusiasts in Phoenix, AZ that can use Backpage for that purpose.
Backpage Small Business
One other huge advantage of Backpage if you are a small business and have a website with most categories you can upgrade your ads on Backpage and have your website linked from the ads which will help your local SEO or Search Engine Optimization of your website and help you rank a little better for the related local keywords and content for your website.
The caveat there is it’s still only one link to your website but it’s still a powerful one and can definitely help you with your digital marketing efforts locally.
Backpage Phoenix Pets
Lastly another stand out category is pets. In today’s digital world their really are only a few places to find pets locally online. It’s craigslist and backpage. Yes, there are national pet sites and you can go to your local shelters or the Arizona Humane Society.
However, the days of using the newspaper have become the days of using online classifieds sites to sell and buys pets whether you are a looking for or want to sell dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, snakes or any other legal pet.
Backpage Phoenix is a great alternative or combo site to use with Craigslist in many ways when using the sites as a locally focused online marketplace of sorts in Phoenix Arizona and other local cities like Tucson and Prescott.
