I used to live out on Wilmington Island, a suburb of Savannah. It's surrounded by rivers and marshes. And it's "palmetto bug" city. I had one land on the back of my head when sitting on the patio at a restaurant once. They freak me out. I used Terminix, and they somehow managed to keep the inside of my house completely bug-free, which is next to impossible down there. A good exterminator and year-round service is pretty much an absolute necessity down here.

Speaking of bugs, make sure you've got a termite contract, too. Just like our roaches, our termites down here can fly.

I do have a termite bond! And an exterminator contract. Our realtor personally doesn't use one because she said she doesn't have any problems with bugs at her house in Roswell, so we didn't sign up for one initially. One cockroach was enough for me to cave in and hand a little bit of my wallet over on a quarterly basis.
