When pests become a problem in your home, you need the best pest control service to keep them at bay. But with so many companies competing for your business, it can be challenging to know which one to choose.
Are pest control chemicals safe?
Whether it’s termites, bed bugs or cockroaches, most homeowners know that it’s best to call in the professionals at the first sign of an infestation rather than trying to do-it-yourself. Professionals have the tools, knowledge and experience to eradicate pests safely and effectively without putting you, your pets or children at risk.
A reliable pest control company will also have a good track record of customer satisfaction and offer transparent pricing. When comparing services, be sure to ask about the length of the contract, what pests are covered and how payments and fees work. You should also check the licensing of the applicators that perform the treatment and ask for copies of the pesticide labels with application rates, cautions and warnings on them.
Finally, make sure the company you choose offers a written guarantee and explains the pests and their preferred treatment methods. Most reliable companies will provide a detailed inspection of your home to identify access points, vulnerable areas and areas where pests may be hiding before recommending the best treatment options. They’ll also include follow-up inspections and free supplemental treatments if pests return between appointments.
