Hi peternkye,

Are the blocks reasonably flat? What's the price range?

Thanks guys, I guess they just put the scare in you when the words "warranty will be voided" are thrown into the mix!

Hi Guys - a question for those who have moved in.
We have received a letter / reminder from Advanced Pest Control saying that we need to get them in to…

Yeah same as James, ours was about a week too. I have heard generally it can be anywhere from almost straight away to two weeks.
