Pests!

Don' you just hate them? I know they have their role on the planet but I'm just not crazy about their role in our lives. I grew up in an old house. It's mostly wood and not much concrete. That means I've seen and experienced termites up close and personal. Where I grew up, we didn't have professionals like pest control mesa around so we had to try and do the damage control ourselves. Needless to say, it's usually a futile attempt. We didn't know what we were doing so after days of 'getting rid' of the pesky termites, we'd see them again usually in the other parts of the house. Let me just say, they wreaked havoc into our lives.

Today, we hire professionals to do that. That is the only way to go if we want to really get rid of these termites. As a matter of fact, when we had our house built, they already started the pest control treatment. After that initial treatment, we make sure that we have some professionals come periodically to see if we are still from those little monsters. We believe that we cannot be too sure even if we had the foundation sprayed early on. What is it they say? An ounce of prevention is better than a gallon of cure. I guess that goes true with pest control as well, eh?
