When most people have any type of pest control problem, they simple call the exterminator.
When Elin Nordegren, former wife of golfer Tiger Woods, has a pest control problem, she demolishes her house.
Nordegren decided to level her 17,000 square foot, beach front home in North Palm Beach, FL after it was discovered to be infested with termites and carpenter ants. Aside from that, the home is not up to Florida’s hurricane code. Her home builder advised her it would be easier to level the house and start from scratch.
Before the take-down, Habitat For Humanity was allowed to take as many cabinets, hardware and fixtures as possible before the wrecking crews were sent in.
We only wish we could have been the ones to make the recommendation.
Elin: “So I have termites and ants. What do you recommend?”
Bulwark: “Well we’ve never seen it this bad before. We recommend you completely destroy your house to the ground, rebuild it again, and then sign up for our regular every-other-month service. We also do free call-backs in between services if your issue continues.”
Elin: “Hmmm. That’s sounds like a good idea. Let me call a wrecking crew, let them level this baby, spend another 12 mil to build it back up and then I’ll have you guys come back out….You guys don’t do the human-type pest control on ex-husbands do you?!”
Bulwark: “Uhh…We take care of the bugs that eat wood, not Woods himself.”
