Top 10 Tips for Finding a Pest Management Professional

  1. Always deal with a qualified and licensed pest management company. Consider asking to see their license or other credentials, and make sure they're licensed in your state.
  2. Evaluate pest control companies that are members of national, state, or local pest management associations
  3. Ask your pest professional for Termidor (liquid) or Trelona (bait) by name, depending on which treatment option he/she prescribes
  4. Ask friends and neighbors to recommend pest control companies they have used successfully and how satisfied they were with the service.
  5. Don’t rush a decision. Since you are paying for professional knowledge as well as skillful application of pesticides, look for someone whose judgment you can trust.
  6. Before signing a contract, be sure to fully understand the nature of the household pest to be controlled,the extent of the infestation, and the work necessary to solve the problem.
  7. Find out if the pest control company has liability insurance to cover any damages to your house or furnishings during treatment.
  8. If a guarantee is given, know what it covers, how long it lasts, what you must do to keep it in force, and what kind of continuing control, prevention, and management are necessary.
  9. Buy value, not price.
  10. Homeowners can call state pest control regulatory agencies for information regarding the status of pest management companies. In most states the regulatory agency is the State Department of Agriculture.
