I also offer a Perimeter Pest Control Program. It's a VERY easy service to perform and the product (crosscheck LESCO) is cheap. We simply spray a path around the perimeter of the home, 3 feet up the foundation and 6 ft out in the landscape...also spray around entry ways that you can reach (doors, windows, etc.) It creates a barrier to keep insects from entering the home. We offer 4 services per year. Granted it's not as in depth as what Orkin or someone similar would do but it does work well as a preventative measure. Some states require a license to do this service.

I'm all about upselling services if a customer truly needs it. Any extra revenue is ok in my opinion!!
We do the same thing down here in NWFL.
