We have used Terninix since we moved into our home and am happy to say we are all but totally bug free. Sure we get a litlte bug now and then but I would be horrified if I ever saw a roach. For years we always had the same technician, which I really like. Lately it is a different one each time and I do not like that, but they always get the job done.
