Do I need to move furniture for pest control?

Depending on the pest control services you need, moving appliances and pieces of furniture away from the walls could be helpful for the exterminator. Even if there are no traces of pests behind certain pieces of furniture, the exterminator may still need to spray the area as a preventative measure. 

If you’re not sure which pieces of furniture you should move, ask the exterminator so you’re fully prepared when they arrive for your appointment.
