I certainly agree with you, if you are a tenant then why are you taking the effort in calling a pest control company? Let this work be carried out by house owner only. I remember, Last year my neighbor had encountered a similar problem to his landlord and so the renter decided to contact the pest control NYC for exterminating the pests permanently. Till today they didn't face any pest problem and are very much satisfied with the exterminator NYC services. Likewise, you should also talk with your landlord for leading the step ahead.
