Early exterminators experimented with judicial pest-control solutions, such as serving roaches with tiny eviction notices and suing silverfish on The People's Court. Declare martial law on household pests with this Groupon.
$78 for Inspection and Pest-Control Treatment ($189 Value)
During the first session in this two-session package, a certified inspector sweeps homes for signs of termites, spiders, ants, and crickets. A technician then addresses inspector concerns in a follow-up session, also dusting exteriors, treating interior crevices and plumbing voids, and safeguarding foundations with power or pump-up sprayers. Patrons can swap pest-control services for an in-home flea treatment for no extra charge. A travel fee applies for all homes more than 20 miles from the Oklahoma City metro area.
Terminix lives out its motto, “power over pests,” by providing extermination services for termites, bedbugs, and other common household insects, backed by a comprehensive money-back guarantee. In an initial inspection appointment, certified inspectors scan quarters for warning signs, such as termite-style wood damage and empty black-widow terrariums. Terminix’s primary strategy, viable for most pests, pivots on a liquid defense system applied to the soil that surrounds homes. The liquid coats passing arthropods in pesticide, which they then transmit to their peers. Baited traps supplement the liquid system, luring in bugs from strategic positions near food-filled locales, such as refrigerators and beanbag chairs stuffed with baked beans. Bug banishers can also spray bedbug-infested rooms with Rapid Freeze carbon dioxide, which ices both the bugs and their eggs.
