Pest Control $35 ~ So Glad We Did it (They Found Termites Last Year!) :(

pest_control

You can pay $35 and get full pest control treatment The company services the East Valley.  The offer is through Deal Chicken.  It says “limited time” so I’m not sure when it ends.  You will need to redeem your certificate by 5/18/15.

I don’t often post about deals like this, mainly because the “deal” is to do it yourself!  :)  It’s expensive to pay someone to do pest control for you.

BUT, this is also my public service announcement.  About a year and half ago, I bought a similar pest control offer since we were having extra little critters around here and I was sick of it.  I was doing homeschool with my kids, sitting on our couch, and a roach crawled on my leg.  I thought it was ?? and didn’t really pay attention, just sort of scratched at it.  When I discovered what I just touched and what was crawling on me, I screamed so loudly.  My kids still talk about me freaking out.  I’m not a screamer, even for bugs, but that was all I could take!!  It was that day or the next that a deal like this showed up in my inbox.  Needless to say, I bought it!

Beyond saying goodbye to roaches, I got another benefit.  The guy who came out told us we had termites.  Hard to type “benefit” and termites together, but it really was.  At first I was skeptical since I figured he just wanted us to pay him big bucks to treat it.  The guy was really nice and showed me the signs on an outer wall and gave me a price.  He never called me back (which, I think he should have!) or harassed me.  I ended up with going with a cheaper company.  I’m glad we didn’t let termites eat our house any longer than they had!

Honestly, I have no idea if this company would spot them or not, but I plan on asking them to look.  I’m guessing they’re trained in it and can give me the extra assurance that they haven’t come back.  (The company we used guarantees their work and will come out and do another inspection for free, but I like the idea of a third party checking it out.)

Anyway . . . I had no clue we had termites and never even considered the possibility that we did.  If you’re in the same boat, it may be worth a check before it gets worse.

Again, I don’t know that this deal is the solution, but it was for me.  Minimally, you can just get rid of unloved critters at a pretty good price!  :)  Unfortunately, I saw two roaches outside last night.  If I could see two, I know there are more that will also make their way in our house.  Ughhh!!!   It’s time to battle them again!  It’s like Deal Chicken knows when to send me these offers!?!?

    We’re in the process of buying a home right now and I learned from our inspector, with houses in Phoenix, it’s not a matter of IF they will get termites, it’s a matter of WHEN. The thought gives me the heebie-jeebies, but now I know to keep an eye out for that stuff!

      I have heard that, too. I guess it’s just one of those things you really don’t believe, until it happens to you. Duh! :) I’m just glad that several companies said it wasn’t terrible yet. Phew!
