Whether it’s bugs or rodents that have been bothering you, if you’ve tried your hand at home remedies and none of them seem to be giving you the results you’re hoping for, it may be time to call in a professional. But choosing a pest control company isn’t an easy task. There are several factors to consider when selecting a company and with a little dedication and the right questions to ask you’ll find yourself pest free in no time at all.
Many companies now use what the industry calls Integrated Pest Management, or simply IPM, which is one of the most effective forms of pest management. It’s a series of tactics and services that are designed to reduce the risk to the environment and people around them. When looking for a pest control company, ask what kind of reduced risk pest control products they have that might benefit you. Also make sure that they have products with low impact applications, meaning that their use won’t detrimentally alter the environment that surrounds them. Don’t settle for a company that uses highly toxic methods or products to eliminate pests.
Also question the companies you speak to about whether or not they use non-toxic pest control methods. This is especially important if you’re looking for pest control in your home where you may have children or animals. They should offer suggestions when it comes to sanitation and exclusion, meaning your house will be rid of any unwanted pest and barriers will be put up to prevent other unwanted pests from entering the premises. This will make sure your house is free of those pesky menaces now and in the future. Preventative measures will make a big difference in whether your pest control problem becomes a recurring one.
Of course, as with any business, customer service is always important. Are they able to get to your house or business in a timely manner? The longer you leave a pest problem, the more likely it is to get worse. What kind of warranty can they offer you? While pest control companies that specialize in integrated pest management may charge a bit more an effective warranty turns a “service” into a Pest Control Program. And most importantly, how do they treat you? As a firm believer that customer service is the most important aspect of any business, there’s no reason they can’t have good customer cooperation skills.

The products, methods and service a company offers will be the biggest factors to consider when deciding which pest control company is best for your problem. Check out reviews online if you’re unsure about a company as its previous customers are a good indication of how the company will handle business with you as well. Don’t settle for the first pest control company you come upon. Compare reviews, service offerings and warranty structure when investigating companies, there’s a huge difference between “Price” and “Value”.
