Moe was the exterminator. This was his 3rd visit. Paid the company already $575 for some carpenter ants and for Mice/Rats maintenance. The call back was for some ants on the ceiling in the garage. The technician Moe ask for $200 for a one time treatment without warranty. The set price was double (carpenter ants treatment was $90 per visit) because he has to clime up a ladder. No warranty because the entire house and garden was not treated which would be close to $1,000.
These exterminators are like lawyers, based on their fee structure. If I would have agreed to it, it would have taken Moe 5 minutes to spray some powder on the area. It takes him more time to write the invoice then doing the actual job.
Money easy earned because they have the license for products not available at the hardware stores.
