Where on earth can an exterminator go?

We here at pestcemetery are not afraid to take on the hard hitting and controversial subject matter of the pest industry. Just last year we sent 2 field operatives deep into enemy territory to uncover the great tubes in the wall conspiracy, only one came back. We’ve even dared to stand up to the strong Do it Yourself pest control supply stores and declare the truth undaunted by their powerful unions. In our efforts we strive to bring you the subject matter that no one else will, oh sure if you want daily updates of pest control news and useful information-go ahead, check out probestsblog, timely information is so over rated. Industry news? yea Pete’s Ok if you like that stuff but I’m talking hard hitting water cooler stuff. Not even that rentokil gang takes you where this blog dares to go.

There has been a problem with the pest control industry that was inherent with the very first route ever created. At first, with sparse populations it didn’t matter much and no one could for-see it ever becoming an epidemic problem. As time went on and homes got closer and closer, routes grew and time in between stops got ever slimmer. Technicians are crafty people, quick on their feet and able to see solutions so the pressing situation was something they could still overcome.

Fast forward to 21st century and this urgency became so great that we could no longer dance around the problem–ahhhh- but with the housing boom service men and women suddenly had ample places to relieve themselves of this reoccurring dilemma again escaping the terrible urgency of the situation. But the housing boom was just a bladder that had to burst and with it all of our convenient respites were slowly taken away leaving us with a building pressure making our knees knock as we can think of nothing else. This great quandary still fills every technician to capacity and decisive action is required to release the pressure before one would BURST!

Can I make it to my next stop?

What if they don’t open the door right away?

Is there a store nearby?


Oh God doesn’t anybody build houses around here anymore so I can use the port a potty?

Pest control has been around along time and taken great strides, miracles in invention and entrepreneurship have put our industry in the best place it’s ever been throughout the ages. Still with all this we have one problem that was there from the beginning and there is no sure fire fix. Where on earth, can an exterminator go? One things for certain, we’ll find an answer, we always do.
