    I wanted to share a good story about one of your technicians. We live in Merrimon, NC. We have had a common black and white household spider living outside the front door of our home for several months. We have watched her shed her skin several times, call a mate and now has two sacks of eggs on the palm plant beside our door. Although I’m nervous about the baby spiders getting in the house, watching this process has been remarkable.

    The Rid-A-Pest technician came when we were out of town earlier this week. Due to the rain, she had to come back to finish the application and spoke to my husband. She had noticed the spider but realized that it had been there for some time and decided not to destroy the web. She asked if we wanted it removed and my husband said no.

    We are grateful for her thoughtfulness. She could have easily cleared away the web and the spider without any consideration to the age of the web. Please thank her for me.
