The Place I Live in is Now Free of All Bugs

After a rough divorce, I needed a way to support myself, my children and stay in the apartment that I previously shared with my ex-husband. I had been a stay at home wife since the age of 19, so I simply did not have the degree needed to get a very high paying job. When a friend asked me if she could pay me to take care of her little girl so that she could work, I realized I found my calling. But I also knew that I would need to find an exterminator in NYC that would rid my place of all insects before I took care of anyone else’s child.

I live in a very old building with over 60 apartment units in it. The hallways are dark and cramped and there are so many places for bugs to hide. Continue Reading

We Moved to a Nicer City for Our Children’s Sake

My wife and I had long felt like it was important for us to move to an area that can be considered safe for us and our children. We also wanted to live where there are many good work opportunities for us. So we began searching for some apartments for rent in Lynchburg VA because we had heard such good things about the location. People we know who have moved there say that are really happy and they feel safe. This made us happy to hear. Out of all cities in our state that friends had moved to, Lynchurg is the place we repeatedly heard many compliments about. This was music to our ears and all we needed to know before making a final decision to move there.

My wife and I grew up in an area where jobs can be hard to come by. We had always hoped that would change over time. It did, but not as much as we would have lived. Continue Reading

Our Kids Are Happy That We Got Help

When we moved into an renovated farmhouse, we were pleased that the wildlife around us was so relaxing when we came to view the house. But the real estate agent did not tell us that wild animals can be a problem sometimes, too. We found that out after moving in and needed Canada geese control in NJ for the sake of our kids. We wish that would not have needed to move the geese, but it was very necessary to do so.

We loved the sounds the geese make as they fly over head and landed on the outskirts of our yard. But after we moved in, they were very curious about our children. Both the kids and the geese seemed to coexist rather peacefully for about a few weeks or so. Not long after that, the geese seemed to not like that our children were on their “turf,” and they began chasing our kids. It was kind of funny at first, but it got to the point where the kids could not play outside at all without the geese coming after them. Soon, our kids were petrified of going outside.

We decided to take a break from the geese by telling our kids they needed to stay inside for a couple of weeks. Our hope was that after that time period, they would forget about how annoyed they were by us being on what they see as their property. After two weeks, they went back outside to try to play again, and everything was okay for a couple of days. But then the same issue cropped up again. One of my kids was petrified and chased across the yard until she fell down and broke her ankle. We knew it was hopeless, so we had a company that specializes in removing them to come help us.
