Q) I am paying for pest control service so I won’t have bugs. Why do I keep finding dead bugs in my house?
A) Even though you have pest control service there is no assurance that pests will not gain access to the interior of the structure. Finding dead bugs as opposed to live ones is an indicator that your pest control service is working. Even finding an occasional live one is not a serious issue as having pest control service does insure that pests entering the structure will not survive to the point of infestation.
Q) Why do I keep getting ants in my house even after I have sprayed for them?

If you have an ant infestation in your home my best advice is to contact a professional pest control operator and have them determine what type of ants you have and the best treatment method for your home.
