Hi,
Thanks for the awesome info loaded in your site. Very helpful.
I have a very confusing dilemma. 3 months back we had a terminix guy come by and offered pest control program. We recently had a baby, and just as a precaution and also as the home was 13 years old, we took it. He wanted us to enrol in the termite program also but we replied to see about it later. The pest control alone was $85 quarterly. He checked aound the perimeter of the home and sprayed some stuff and said other than a few spiders and ants, everything else was pretty clean. This August he came in and did the regular maintenance. We were not home, so he left us a note saying he saw termites under a rock in the platbed in the right side of our home. We use ground mulch and the plantbed is lined on the outside with flat grey rocks. He wanted us to take the termite program which is like $850 a year. I checked the rocks on the right side of the building, but did not see any. We have been living in this home for the past 7 years. It is brick front and has a finished basement. We never had any issues with pest or ants or any other bugs. I totally respect that every insect has a right to live on this earth as us and I never worry about a few spiders or snakes or beetles around the home or as far as they are in the garden. But I am worried about how serious should i take this matter. Please help me on how i should handle this matter, and how far should I believe him.. Also I would like to know some good pest exterminators around this area, if needed. We live in Winston Salem, nc.
