Questions to Ask the Pest Control Company

pest control

If you happen to suffer from a pest problem that doesn’t seem to go away, you can ask for the support of a professional pest control company. To make sure that you’ve chosen the right pest control service, it would be to your benefit if you ask the following questions:

1. Is the pest control service licensed?

Pest control firms have to be licensed, and that’s because they all handle substances that can be fatal. Many states issue licenses. It’s also possible for you to get in touch with your own state’s pesticide regulatory committee to ensure that the chosen pest control’s license remains valid. You’re free to ask any questions.

2. Would the company be able and also willing to discuss the proposed treatment to be used in your own home?

You have to note that selecting a pest control is as important as that of picking the lawyer or doctor. That’s how you have to check on their credentials and competence. Every company has to be able to inspect your own premises and also recommend its control program. Such program should have the following:

  • Pests that have to be controlled
  • The extent and also the severity of the control program
  • The active ingredients found in the pesticides
  • All pesticide application strategies
  • The potential harm that the pesticides may bring to the humans, pets, and even plants
  • Ways to reduce pest problems in the near future

3. Does the said company have a reliable track record?

For this, you don’t have to rely on a sales person for you to have an honest answer. You have to come up with your own research. You also have to check if there are any complaints as regards the company. It helps to ask your friends and relatives too.

4. Does the firm have the right insurance coverage?

The sales clerk should be able to show you written proof that the firm is truly insured. Insurance will be able to guard against topics like accidental pollution. The insurance of the company will be able to provide you protection if ever an accident happens during the application of pesticides.
