Are you ready to get rid of those pests from your home once and for all? Nobody blames you! Here are a few questions to ask before hiring a pest control service provider to work with:
What Kinds of Pests Can Be Handled?
It is important to find out exactly what kinds of pests the company you are considering working with can handle. Not every pest control company deals with every pest. Some specialize in just one or two types of pests, like roaches and spiders. But if you want to make sure that your home stays free of pests of any kind in the future, your service provider should offer services for a wide range of pests such as:
- Bed Bugs
Ask any service provider you consider working with now and in the future to provide you with a complete list of pests that they will be able to get rid of and keep away from your home indefinitely.
What Kinds of Treatments are Used?
It is also important to find out what kinds of treatments the company you think of working with will be using to get rid of pests throughout your home. Anything they spray or apply around the house can affect your family members and pets, so make sure that they use natural ingredients where possible.
And find out whether there are any possible side effects that could result from the application of their pest control treatments. If any side effects are presented to you, consult with your physician before agreeing to have the treatments administered throughout your home, just to make sure that you and your family will know exactly what to expect after the fact.
How Often Should Treatments be Administered?
There is no guarantee that the pests you want to get rid of will stay away forever after your service provider treats it. Therefore, you should find out how often they will have to come back to ensure that you do not end up having to live with pests of any kind again in the future.
Depending on the types of treatments and tools they use, re-treatments could be needed anywhere from once a month to once a year. If you think the company requires re-treatments too often, consider looking for another company to work with that will not need to visit your home as often.
