Hi John, I met with an exterminator today who worked for fifteen years at a major name business (up to management level), and left because he was fed up with their rip-off practices, similar to all of your criticisms of such businesses.

He knew the chemicals Termidor and Phantom. He wants to spray the outside of the house with Trizicide and the inside with Tempo Ultra SC. (We would probably try without spraying inside first, to avoid chemicals indoors).

He will spray the Delta Dust into the house walls, through some venting and other holed, cracks that already exist.

He wants to treat the infested electrical post, and I have called the electrical company about replacing that.

He volunteered to come the day the carpenter removes and replaces the windows, to get some Delta dust into those areas while exposed and treat any nests we discover.

He doesn't bait. My husband and I will probably use up remaining MAXFORCE carpenter bait gel.

He charges 150 for first treatment wants to come every month to respray until September charging 50 for those visits, no obligation to have him come again, only paying as he treats the house.

What do your think? Thanks again for all your input.

Heather in Ann Arbor
