Hasta La Vista, Hormigas

We have officially been exterminated. So technically, this entry should cease immediately.

However. For future reference: Quarterly pest control = $70. Custom interior spray for ants, roaches and spiders. Hand-thrown bait for ants, roaches, spiders and camelback crickets and other miscellaneous critters. Treated exterior windows, porches and perimeter for all pests. Tom swept down all the exterior spiderwebs and noticed the left front downspout is clogged at roof level and overflowing. Also, the two basement windows on the portico side have significant gaps above the frame that should be caulked/weather-stripped.

Midwesterners are so helpful. NO way a DC area exterminator would have told you the rest of that stuff. In fact, you'd be lucky if they even showed up the day they were scheduled to come!!

I've dealt with some sketchy contract people here in town (especially when I was President of our HOA), but our exterminator is not one of them. They're awesome! They send the same guy (Tom from Wiscahnson) each time, partly because we requested him on a recommendation from some friends, and because they believe in continuity amongst customers. My guy Tom even called to schedule our appointment himself. Then he showed up at 8:30 on the dot, right on time. When he left, he told me that if we had any problems with pests between treatments, he'd come out and spray again--no charge--even if the 30-day guarantee period was up. And since we live so close (like a mile away), he could "be over right away". Go, Tom!

Midwesterners are another reason to love the South. ;)
