Default Exterminator Recommendation?

Yes, I'm treating KCSR like my own Angie's List but w/e, I'm on board with giving board members preference as well...

Brookside/Waldo area, looking for an exterminator. I honestly don't know if it matters or not (I don't think it does) but the main issues are spiders (now) and sometimes in early spring ants try to move in on my kitchen.

I do the semi-annual spray around the foundation but the house is old with too many leaks and the spiders are getting fucking annoying.

Any recommendations are appreciated.
Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that ”all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocricy. - Lincoln

For the ants....

The trick is let them have it. Don't spray or disrupt them. Let them have all the Terro they want, and they won't come back. Initially, it will draw more ants, but you MUST resist the urge to smash or spray them.
