Professional pest control is not a bugger

Hello everyone:

Bugs are not a fun visitor to have in your home. If you chose to use a professional exterminator, there are a few things you need to know.

The spray guy (or gal) who comes to exterminate at your home will normally just spray the outside of the house. Let him or her know if you are having a specific problem.

Service does include killing bugs but does not include the death of termites. That requires a separate contract. Depending on the area where you live, your traditional service contract covers cockroaches, ants, and spiders.

There are two different types of termites, dry wood and subterranean.  The dry wood termites have fewer termites in their colonies and they are less destructive. They fly into your home in warmer seasons.

Subterranean termites, on the other hand, are underground, they do more damages because there are more of them, and they come up through a dirt tunnel. They like the dark. Once your exterminator gets rid of them, it is worthwhile to protect your home through a yearly contract where the exterminator returns to re-inspect your house annually and to rid your home of any termites that might have returned.
