Northwest Arkansas – There is nothing worse than a pest control company that can’t control pests. This is an unfortunately common occurrence throughout Northwest Arkansas, as many fly-by-night companies pop up all the time. Alder Pest Control technicians say that these unqualified companies can use harmful chemicals and may not actually have the skills, tools, and experience needed to rid a homeowner of their concerns.
According to Alder Pest Control, there are several things homeowners should discuss during the pest control services vetting process. This applies to those looking for termite inspection, quarterly pest control, rodent control, and other pest remediation services.
First, Alder Pest Control suggests that homeowners ask how long the company has been in business. While there are many new companies that have good intentions, homeowners with a significant issue may wish to go with a company that has been in business for at least five years and that has plenty of verified reviews from real customers online.
Another important matter to discuss early on is whether or not the pest control company is licensed, insured, and bonded. Alder Pest Control is all of these things and is happy to provide copies of supporting documents to customers on demand.
Homeowners should also ask a few questions about how the technician plans to choose which nuisances to target. They should dive down deep into the types of pests that are actually seen and what stages of life they are in. If possible, homeowners should also be shown photos of infestations that aren’t visible during a perimeter walk-through. They will also want to ask if everything present is targeted during quarterly pest control services or if there are additional fees for spiders, mice, and other critters.
Because many companies use a “bait and switch” approach to quoting pest control services, Alder further recommends asking if quotes are firm or if they are loose estimates. An experienced technician should know what they are looking for and how much the homeowner can actually expect to pay for insect remediation services.
Homeowners who have children and pets will also need to ask about the types of chemicals used during the pest control process. This also applies after a termite inspection if evidence of a termite infestation is found. Alder Pest Control takes safety seriously and only uses chemicals that are considered safe, although homes with exotic animals may need to remove the animal during each quarterly pest control appointment.
Ultimately, Alder Pest Control says that the purpose of quarterly pest control is to get rid of bugs and rodents and keep them away. With the tips above, homeowners should have no problem weeding out companies that can’t keep their promises.
Alder Pest Control is one of the most experienced termite control services in the Northwest Arkansas area. With a team of technicians with decades of combined experience, Alder Pest Control can handle everything from quarterly pest control services to full-blown termite infestations.
