you live in a sensitive area near a waterway, for example.
Conventional methods. Sometimes eco-friendly treatments aren’t as effective. With that in mind, it’s important to find out if the pest control company offers conventional methods as well? Do they provide a graduated treatment plan that starts with green or eco-friendly methods and moves up to conventional methods if the first approaches are unsuccessful?
9. The Availability of Free Quotes
To accurately assess your pest situation, a reputable company will provide a free inspection of your home and property.
During this inspection, they’ll assess your pest problem, identify the species present, and make a treatment plan. If the company doesn’t offer a pest inspection, and instead provides a flat rate for all services, be wary.
These companies are typically trying to take advantage of homeowners with severe pest control problems who need immediate help.
As you browse for pest management companies, be sure to ask the ones you like about their policies on free inspections and how they deliver quotes.
10. Recommendations From Friends and Family
One excellent way to find a reliable pest management company is to ask for recommendations from friends and family members. The people in your circle may have worked with companies they like. If that’s the case, they’ll probably be more than willing to provide references for the companies they trust.
If you can get a few recommendations from people you trust, it’s a great way to build a list of pre-vetted pest control companies.
