Got a termite problem? Make sure your exterminator picks up after himself.

In this frightening tale of contractor forgetfulness, a mother of three kids discovered that her hired exterminator left behind a Loony Toons sippy cup that he had been using as a bait distributor. The cup was left out where the kids could have gotten to it.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but when the mom brought the issue to the attention of the company, their reaction wasn’t quite what she was hoping for.

See how the company responded. What would you do?

Of course, this is exactly why homeowners should explore all the termite control options available on the market. Not all solutions are potentially toxic to humans.
