    Insect control companies

    Anyone have any recommendations for insect control? Wasps have found a hole in the side of our house and have made that their home. We did not notice until they found a way into the house one day last week.

    We called Spinger and that company sucks beyond belief. Three times now they have said they would show up and failed to show, and today they called and said they would not come unless we signed up for a year of service for mice. Umm, we don't have mice, I just want this problem taken care of so my kids can sleep in their room again.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: We are in Ankeny, so local is the best.

    We use ASAP Pest Control out of Adel. Not sure if they'll come out to Ankeny but I would assume they will. We use them all year round as we live near a couple fields and get various critters and bugs around the house but we don't see many at all since we started with them. Prices are pretty reasonable as well.

    A new information here? We have a spider problem in our house. We're killing one every other day or so. Rather large too.

    Nevermind if he's actually an exterminator, he was the starting center for gods sake.
