Signed up with a contract about 5 months ago. Were told it would get better. So far it's still as bad as the 1st visit, an infestation. I asked Tech to spray everywhere but he refusrs to do so. He has a sharp sarcastic attitude & jokes around but it's not funny. How much to get out of my contract?...

...I was angry because I have a special needs son and it is very difficult to plan around that as well as being held up by a business who just threw out a price without seeing the situation and couldn't be bothered because of the heat. The company is a fraud..
