Landlords... Do you provide pest control?

I am going to be purchasing some single family homes (mostly wood frame construction) in Central Florida for the purpose of rental income. My question is, should I provide periodic pest control service for my properties, or let that be the tenant responsibility? My gut tells me to take care of it to ensure the long-term quality of each house. Also, should I use a big company like Terminix, or try and find a local company who can save me money without sacrificing quality?
