Well, you’re in luck! because we are here to answer that exact question: how to pick a pest control company and services!
5 Tips For Selecting the Right Pest Control Company and Services
- Do your research: a quick internet search is a good way to get a general feel for various pest control companies, including their beliefs and their pest control methods. It is also a good way to research customer feedback and reviews including how the company handles any negative feedback; let’s face it, no company or person is perfect, but how a company handles a problem can speak volumes!
- Determine how long a pest control company has been in business: a pest control company’s longevity in the pest control industry says a lot of about their principles, commitment to their customers, and commitment to the industry.
- Make sure that the pest control company that you are choosing has at least one certified, licensed pesticide applicator or a licensed technician one site — this is a requirement for all pest control companies.
- Make sure that the pest control company that you are choosing makes themselves as transparent as possible and is willing to provide you with a copy of their pest control license, copies of pest control labels, rates for which any pesticides that are going to be used will be applied, or any other basic information that you ask for.
- Pick a pest control company that takes into consideration environmental needs and utilizes preventative and exclusion measures through Integrated Pest Management, in addition to the use of pesticides. Also, their use of pesticides should only be used as needed, in the most minimal amount possible, and should be applied in a targeted manner.
Some red flags to look out for when trying to select a responsible, trustworthy pest control company include companies that don’t have a listed or working telephone number, companies that are trying to sell their services door to door, and companies that claim to be endorsed by the States Departments of Agriculture, the U.S. EPA, or other government agency — government agencies never endorse pest control companies! It is also important to be wary of companies that claim to have discovered a “secret formula” to solve all your pest problems, companies that charge by the pesticide gallon, or companies that pressure you to sign a contract immediately during an inspection.
