Nearly every pest control company has a website these days which you can use to learn more about the company. There are also online review websites you can use to determine what customers have said about those companies. Just calling the first number that shows up in a search may not get you the best service. Instead, do your homework.
You can ask neighbors in person, via phone or using social media. You can review what customers have said online and you can see if the company website’s has any testimonials. Find out how long the company has been in business. Most pest control companies have an “About Us” or “Company History” page that will feature this information. Have they been doing this for a while? Are they new to the industry? Experience does count when it comes to pest control.
How long have you been in business?
Knowing the ins and outs of pest control is something learned and mastered over time. It takes years of experience and training to know how to effectively get rid of pests. How long has the pest control company been in business? How much experience do their pest control specialists have?
What licenses, training and certification do your pest control specialists have?
Pest control companies should be licensed for your protection and their own. They also need to have certified specialists trained in handling the chemicals and offering the treatment options to work effectively in removing the pest. States often have licensing and certification requirements, too, for dealing with any number of pests and the pest control company should be able to prove they have these certifications and licenses in order.
What chemicals are being used and what do the labels say?
If you contact a pest control company who says they have their own brand of chemicals they use, you should be worried. Licensed and certified pest control companies have rigorous FDA standards in which they operate. There are also local state, county and municipal standards they must abide by, too. If you ask them what chemicals they use and if they are licensed to use them, the pest control company should be able to provide this information.
There are a number of business practices a legitimate and licensed pest control company will not do and which should raise a red flag.
