How To Choose The Right Pest Control Company

So you’ve found a pest in your home, it could be bedbugs in your guest room, cockroaches in your kitchen, squirrels in your loft or mice in your garage. It doesn’t matter what the pest is or where you have found it, you will need to find a pest control company to help rid of your pest problems. But how do you know which pest control company to choose?

The first thing you need to do is a bit of research, ask around your friends, family or work colleagues and see if they know anyone or could recommend anyone to you. If you’re not sure you want to admit to people that you have a pest problem then have a look on the internet, newspapers or even the Yellow Pages and see what pest control companies are out there.

Have a look at the pest control companies advert or website, does it impress you? If the website looks rushed or looks like little care has gone into it then is that the sort of company you want in your home – one that may rush the job or not really care?

When you have chosen 2-3 companies type their name into an internet search engine and see what comes up. This is where you will be able to find reviews from real people. The pest control company may have their own pest control reviews on their site but they will only put the good ones on their website, have a look to see if there are any bad ones and then ask the pest control company for their side of the story.

Give the pest control companies a call, tell them your pest problem and ask them what they would do to fix it and how much it would cost. This would give you a feel for the company through speaking to them, give you a chance to think about how they would deal with the issue and also the price they would charge. You can then compare these prices with other companies.

Ask the pest control companies the likelihood of the pest returning and how this would be dealt with, some pest control companies may offer a guarantee or a lower rate for returning for the same issue. Make sure you know where you stand if the pests return in a short amount of time.

When all of this is done compare the prices, the procedures and ways in which each pest control company would deal with the issue and also how you felt speaking to them – were you comfortable with them? All you need to do then is call them up and book them in and you will pest free again!
