Tips For Selecting A Pest Control Service

April 26, 2019

It is possible to deal with some pest infestations on your own. However, others are more difficult to eradicate. In some cases, an infestation of pests is so severe that effectively dealing with it requires the services of a professional pest control technician. How, though, do you choose a pest control service? The following questions will help you select a pest control company that is right for you and your residential pest control needs.


1. How Much Experience Does The Pest Control Company Have?


One of the first questions you should ask a potential pest control company is regarding how long they have been in business. After that, find out about the training process for new employees. Finally, figure out whether the pest control company knows how to resolve the specific commercial pest control problem or residential pest control issue you’re experiencing. It doesn’t matter if someone has been in business for more than two decades if they don’t have any experience with the pest you are having trouble with.


2. How Much Does The Pest Control Service Cost?


Of course, you need to think about your budget when choosing a pest control company. However, that should not be your only consideration. In addition to the cost, make sure that the pest control business knows what they are doing and follows the law at all times.


3. Does the Pest Control Company Guarantee Results?


If a pest control company doesn’t guarantee its work, that should be a major red flag for a savvy individual. If they do offer a guarantee, make sure you know if there are any terms and conditions associated with the guarantee. You don’t want to assume you are covered, only to find out that you did something that invalidated your guarantee or services.


4. Friends Personal Experience With Pest Control Companies


One of the best ways to find a good pest control service is to ask family and friends for their recommendations. It is, of course, valuable to find out who they like, but it can be just as useful to find out who they don’t like (as well as the reasons why they don’t like them). You can also go online and check out any possibilities on the website for the Better Business Bureau.


5. Can You Get In Touch With The Pest Control Business?


When you place your initial call to a pest control company, what is your impression of their customer service? Do you have trouble getting a real person on the phone? Are you left waiting for a phone call back? If this is happening from the very beginning, that isn’t a good sign for the future. You want to work with a pest control service that is responsive and compassionate. Choose a company that communicates with you in a timely manner and that seems committed to eradicating your problem.
