If the pest control was not part of your purchase agreement, you should have the property inspected for termites, rats, bees and mice before you move to your new house.

If pests are found, you will not have to worry about your children or pets being exposed to toxic substances.

If you have already had a pest check and it has registered negative, you may want to use a bug bomb just to make sure there are no unwelcome bugs, such as fleas, mites, or spiders until you move in.
