If you have spotted signs of a pest infestation in your home or business, it’s time to act. But before you can handle your pest problem effectively, you need to find the right exterminator to provide pest control services. Pest control is a competitive industry, so there’s no doubt you will be able to find an excellent exterminator near you, but you should at least know what to look for before you choose someone.
Here are three signs of a great exterminator:
- They are experienced. To be sure, you will want to find an exterminator who is licensed and qualified to provide their services at the very least. Ideally, you should find someone who has years of industry knowledge and experience to inform their services and deliver you the best possible results. It’s even better when they have been operating locally for many years since they will be familiar with area-specific pests and climate conditions that may affect pest behavior.
- They care more about customers than the bottom line. No one wants to be just a number to their pest control company, so before you choose the first exterminator you come across, get to know what they care about first, perhaps by reading reviews. You’ll be able to tell quickly whether they are about maintaining longstanding relationships with customers or just making a profit.
- They are honest. You don’t want an exterminator who will just tell you what you want to hear, even when it isn’t the truth. The right exterminator will be upfront about pricing, the severity of your pest infestation, and other concerns. They won’t make promises they can’t keep either, such as telling you that you won’t see any pest activity at all once they provide their services.
