Pest Control by Bill (IL) on March 8, 2018 @14:56

Moving into a rental home with unfinished basement the week of 25 March. Signed up for Orkin for services. They wanted me to do tomorrow and recommended it now before I move in but since I am not moving in to the vacant home for a bit, decided on next Friday. Would tomorrow be to soon to spray or is next week about right?? Thanks!

If you are the tenant, why are you doing the spraying, and not the LL ? If there are pests there while the place is vacant, that is the LLs responsibility to pay to spray before the T moves in. But regardless of who pays for it, the sooner, the better, to have it sprayed. It give the spray that much more time to kill those pests. And you may even want Orkin to come and spray the day before you move in---to kill any remaining pests the first spraying didn't get. Spray poisons take time to kill. That's why they try to sell you a years worth of monthly sprayings-----not only to make money, but they already know you can't kill every pest on just the one spraying.
