How to hire a pest pro

There are things to know before you hire a pest pro. Hiring a pest pro doesn’t have to be a hard thing, you just need to ask a few questions before choosing a company. 

When you have had enough of ants, roaches, spiders on top of the fear of the unseen, it’s time to ask these questions.

One: Free quotes?

When hiring a pest pro, you should expect to find a pro who will come to your home or business and give you a free quote. No pressure, no obligations, just an up front and honest quote which details the service you need.

Two: Knowledgable representative?

The sales representative who visits your home should be knowledgable about the service you are requiring. They should be able to answer most all of the questions you have about everything from pricing to safety and procedures. 

If they don’t know the answers, they should offer to find out and get back to you with accurate information. Being friendly and honest is certainly a bonus when dealing with any sales representatives. 

Three: Service?

When the pest technician comes to your home or business, they should first do a thorough inspection of your structure, inside and out. Make sure the technician checks under sinks, in closets, window sills, outdoor problem areas. 

A quality technician will even make small adjustments if possible to help with your problem. After the service is complete, you should get a consultation with the tech where you get the best advice on how to keep your home pest free. 

Beware: If your tech comes in and starts spraying with no inspection, you need a new company!

Four: Professionalism?

When hiring a pest pro, you are hiring someone to come into your home. ANY pest company representative who comes to your door or inside your home should be dressed professionally, in uniform and driving a clean and well marked vehicle.

Five: Price?

When you are trying to rid your home of roaches, do you really want the “cheapest” service?

The lowest price in pest prevention does not mean you are going to get results. Quality pest prevention may cost more, but in the end you are satisfied. 

We have all had experiences with “cheap” services that ended up in us having to start all over again with more costly, yet more effective results. 

Six: Referrals?

What is everyone else saying about the pest professional that you want to hire? Google reviews can tell you a lot. Ask friends and neighbors, do a little research and choose wisely.

Questions to ask before hiring a pest pro can help you find the right fit for your needs. Unfortunately, there are pest companies who don’t do what they say they are going to do.
