Some things customers do with chemicals to combat pest infestations just make me scratch my head. I’ve had homeowners dump a 50 gallon drum of used motor oil around their home to thwart termites. If there’s any left over they’ve been known to put it ON the cat to kill the fleas. Others have set off multiple bug bombs thinking the massive cloud would solve their dilemmas, pounds of Borax covering common living areas, Hundreds if not thousands spent on bed bugs and even Raid by the case for an occasional roach. I suppose if I were to write down all the things I have seen, I’d need another blog just for the server space. So if you have one to add, just place it down in the comment section below.
Some clients however take a different approach and although a part of me wants to laugh out loud when I see such contraptions-the other part wants to stand up and applaud their efforts with a hefty, atta boy! These are some inventive people and either they’ve finally listened to their bug man who extols the virtue of ‘keeping bugs out’ or perhaps,- some who just got tired of the expense and mess of pounding an area over and over with expensive pest products only to have the problem return soon after the residuals are gone.
For whatever reason I say Thank You- not only for the effort to help out in your pest control service but also in just a little laugh. 😉 (In some cases-it’s a nervous laugh)
