We moved into our house about a week ago and we are renting until we get to know the areas. I found out today that the owners haven't had the house treated for pest control as I guess the previous renters never said anything about any problems.
I've read about the bugs you all have here and I'm terrified of those huge cockroaches, etc. I have been doing a lot of reading on this stuff and I thought it was common for you all to treat your house every 3-4 months for preventative measures? If so, I'm wondering why they don't do it...
I want to have it done and done regularly. So, can anyone recommend a GOOD pest control service?
(and please answer the question about if it's common for everyone to use preventative measures)
Jims Pest Control
Tell us more about your location and house. What state are you in? Age of house, basement/crawl or none? Type of neighborhood-urban, suburban, country; approx age of neighborhood; townhouse, duplex, single detached, modular, etc. City water/sewer or private? What insects have you seen so far? Do you know the species of the huge roaches you've read about?
Here in this part of suburban/rural penna most of our customers are serviced quarterly or less. Now that doesn't mean that most residents have pest control; it's just a statement about our customers. "Do it Yourself" is popular in our area and I support that.
Buy rodent glue traps and place them in safe locations inside-they will catch crawling insects so that you can see what is there. I like the rodent glue traps as they are bigger and catch more insects. The larger type of roaches travel a lot and are curious, especially if the glue traps are scented. Keep us posted.
