Termites, spiders, and other critters
My dh and I recently bought our first home, and I have a question about bugs. We have a lot of spiders around the the outside of the house, particularly black widows. Everyone in this area has them, and they're not getting inside, so I'm not that concerned, but we're thinking about having a pest control company spray for them anyway. At the same time, I'm wondering if we should ask the pest control company to spray for termites too. My know-it-all MIL says *everyone* has termites and should have their home "tented" every 5 years. I highly doubt that to be the case, but would still be interested in any feedback on this. Is it worth it to have a pest control company come out? Does anyone know how much something like that costs? Is it something we would have to do on a regular basis, or is it a one-time thing?
