I’m So Pathetic That I Talked To A Pest Control Salesperson Through The Storm Door For 10 Minutes...

He didn’t sell me on their services but it was nice to talk to someone outside of this house for a change. 😂

I told him 3 times that I've already got someone that does that and he kept on selling it anyway. 🗣️ 😐

[@454355,FloorGenAdm] They are aggressive. He might come back later and then I’ll tell him to scat.

What does he charge for liberal pest control?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@9463,MasterLee] I think he said $50 for initial treatment and then $99 every 3 months for repeat application, they use a plant-based pesticide. I’m not paying that. But they even get up on the roof and spray the walls up there.

[@16806,cherokeepatti] sounds worth it

[@9463,MasterLee] Might be but I’m not paying it. I can get some plant-based insecticide myself and spray around here. I did it last year. And the hard freeze seems to have killed off the earwigs so that’s good right there.

I don't answer the door if I am not expecting you. I have a little window right next to the door which is nice for the dog to look out but unfortunately people also look in. I wave at them.

[@423488,curiosi] I thought it was my neighbor wanting to borrow my limb loppers & complain on how dull they are again.

A good friend owns a pest company and most are paying him to sit on the porch and talk for a while

You’re quite patient. Even with the isolation, I have no desire to talk to salesmen.

[@361684,sciguy18] well I was thinking “no, you’re not getting my stimulus money” while i talked to him

That word , Pathetic should be banned.Such a nasty word.

What y'all talk about?
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@467302,iamnikki] I told him I buy my own natural based sprays and used them and also spray orange oil fragrance spray to kill ants, spiders and earwigs when they get in the house or mailbox.
