3 Things You Need to Know before you hire a Pest Control Company
1. Find a local company. Pests vary greatly from one part of the country to another. There are several large pest control corporations that have offices in dozens of states. Many of these companies are managed by an corporate service manager in an office usually a long way away from you and your pests. These kinds of companies adopt a one-size fits all approach to pest control. Basically they provide a perimeter treatment—and thats there solution for every kind of pests. These companies can credit their growth to large marketing budgets and a well recognized brand. You get a lot more bang for your buck, when you hire a local company with exterminators familiar with your climate, your bugs, your pests and your situation!
2. A solid warranty is essential. There are many factors that can compromise the effectiveness of a pest control treatment, from weather to the resistance of a specific kind of pest. If you hire a company that offers a no questions, no hassle, free re-service policy you will invariably save yourself a lot of hassle down the road. What I mean by a no questions, no hassle warranty, is if a company provides a treatment and a week or two goes by and the problem is still there then you should be able to place a simple phone call and get them to come back and provide another treatment for free!
3. Pest Control is a partnership. As a home owner, there are a lot of things you can do that will help maintain a pest free environment. Hire a company with exterminators that will work with you!
