Hi, I am Stephanie and I am the Bug Man’s Wife. My husband (the fearsome bug slayer, killer of house pests and bounty hunter of unwanted slimy, furry or creepy crawly houseguests) and I live in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. My time in this position has afforded me quite a bit useful and interesting information regarding household pests. My husband and I have spent many an early morning discussing over coffee the behavior patterns of mice, the ways to spot a roach infestation and just how bed bugs come into a person’s home.
One thing that truly amazes me, however, is the level of ignorance that many homeowners have regarding pest control. It blows my mind. Of course, before I attained this lofty position, I was in the same boat. I couldn’t care less about pest control, didn’t know how it worked and wasn’t interested in finding out.
But now that my eyes are open, I can’t go back – and don’t want to. This “great awakening” is what prompted me to start this blog. If I can educate folks about the pest control services they are receiving, controlling pests in their own homes and managing infestations, why not do it?
Most people don’t realize that their pest infestations are usually their own fault.
So here it is; my little contribution to society.
I will post about different pest control problems. Want to know what to ask your pest control technician when he shows up at your house? If you see a mouse in your house, would it freak you out to know there are probably more and you are laying out the welcome mat? Would you like to know if brown recluse spiders are vicious, eight legged monsters or just shy little guys who don’t like to be bullied?
You can find the answers here.
What’s more, if there are things that you want to know and I haven’t addressed it yet, shoot me an email and I’ll address it in a future post.
How do you know if your apartment building is infested with roaches?
What exactly should a pest control professional do when you call them?
Do bed bugs carry diseases?
Why bother with termites if there isn’t a problem?
What do mice look for when they invade your kitchen?
So stick around, this is gonna get interesting…
