Choosing a pest control professional to share in identification and treatment responsibilities for a possible pest infestation is an important decision for your business. The recommendations provided below will help you to better understand how to select a pest control professional and make a decision that best serves your business:
- Always work with a qualified, licensed pest control professional in your area; evaluate companies that are members of national, state or local pest management associations.
- Ask other business owners to recommend pest control companies they have used successfully and how satisfied they were with the service.
- If a sizable amount of money is involved, get bids from several pest management firms.
- Don’t rush a decision. Since you are paying for professional knowledge and skill, look for someone whose judgment you can trust.
- Before signing a contract, be sure to fully understand the nature of the pest, the extent of the infestation, and the work necessary to solve the problem.
- Buy value, not price. Beware of bargains that sound too good to be true.
