Having pests at your place can bring about a lot of health problems to you and your family. If you do not have time to get rid of these pesky creatures, then you might want to hire the services of a good pest control service.
Knowing Which Company is Credible for the Job
Internet is a vast resource and you can get all the information about the right pest management company with the click of a mouse. The roadblock in this task is how can you vouch on the credibility of the company? Here is how.
First and foremost, you need to make a list of all the pest control companies in and around your locality. Shortlist the best pest management services that suit your needs and preferences and make calls to enquire on the solutions they offer.
If in doubt, you can always ask for references from your friends and colleagues on what they had done to get rid of pests. Ensure that you enquire about the pest control methods they use, different rates and quotes and also on to their customer service policy.
Essential Questions to Be Asked
You need to be smart when it comes to hiring pest control services. You might have heard of the famous saying that ‘All that glitters is not gold’. Blindly do not assume that if a company has good accreditations and customer reviews, that is indeed the best company.
Asking the right questions can actually help you decide on which company to choose for your pest control needs:
• Do the technicians have credible licences?
• Have these licenses verified by your state pesticide regulatory office
• Does the company use Integrated Pest Management methods?
• Does the company have certified entomologists?
• Does the company have past experiences on working on similar projects
• If yes, ask for customer references
• Does the company offer onsite visits?
• Is the company offering to discuss the different treatment and product selection plans with you?
• Does the company offer environment friendly solutions for pest control
• Does the company have insurance that covers you, their employees and your property?
• What safety measures are undertaken by the company to prevent accidents?
Ensure that you make a note of all the important details of the company such as the contact details, treatment plan adopted, price charged, guarantees, products used for the treatment and many more.
Even after the treatment is done, ensure that you keep updating the company about the condition of your property. Do your bit in controlling the pests in your house by cleaning your property at regular intervals.
