Re: HELP-Exterminator

It would help if you told us what they are coming to spray for.

@Goodie2shoes  I have never heard of that either. Seems crazy!

 

Yes I did and supposedly they are not using any chemicals. Hope that is true.

@RedTop  Thankfully no bed bugs!  Thank you for this information since I have allergies and asthma and am chemical sensitive!  Sounds fine then if it didnt bother you or your family with their issues. And no odor would be good! He said it will take a few hours to dry totally.

Wow taking everything from cupboards would be a real pain. I dont have alot of space to put things! 

 

I am sure they will say not to clean floors for a while.

@Fur Dude Spray is what they will do. No tenting or bug bomb. I wanted them to only spray outside but he said they have to do the inside of the place!! Thank you!

Our last exterminator told DH to use the Ortho spray that comes with a wand and get great results, I was having some allergy probs and we wanted to rule out the bug treatments as a possible source. Now DH just sprays the outside perimeter of the house, spraying about 8 inches up from the foundation and on the brick and under the bottom windowsills. Twice a year...right as it turns cold, and in the spring. No bugs inside at all. Doubt the commercial treatment was causing my allergies now, but this stuff works so well, no need to call him back to do anything else.
