I am an Exterminator working in an area with a high drug, mental illness and crime rate. Ask me anything!
Let me preface this by saying I will not be sharing locations or identifying details of clients, to protect their privacy and mine.
I work in an extremely underrated career servicing the people most don’t want to acknowledge. Whether it be removing a raccoon from a drug den, to fighting off millions of bed bugs in a care home. Every day brings new challenges and surprises.
My goal here today is to shed light on what is otherwise an often overlooked and stigmatized profession
Edit: 7:52pm Hey everyone it was fun being able to answer questions! However my phone is about to die! But feel free to keep asking and I will happily answer when I can!
Edit 1:52 am As much as I’d love to keep going, I don’t think my thumbs can handle it! It has been an absolute pleasure answering everyone’s questions, quite honestly I didn’t think there would be as much interest as there was, so thank you for turning something I debated not posting into a fun night talking about bugs! I hope I managed to answer everyone’s questions to the best of my ability and if you’re someone struggling with an infestation, please seek professional help if possible. It’s worth every penny for peace of mind and it’s usually cheaper in the long run!
And if you’re reading this and thinking to yourself “yea I can do this” then I absolutely suggest you do! I have worked a plethora of career opportunities, and this has been the only one that has provided me satisfaction at the end of every day.
Sleep tight, and don’t let the bed bugs bite
