Thank you so much for helping me learn what to expect when scheduling fumigation for termite control. That much time could really allow us to go on a quick vacation and even start preparing for the holidays ahead, as we would need all the time we can get regarding that. I’ll plan ahead and hire a pest control service as early as now so my family can do something else while the fumigation is happening.
