What to Look for in a Pest Control Company


Read reviews. Ask around. What are people saying about that particular company? Are the online reviews favorable? Does the company respond to reviews, and how do they address any issues? Digging into these questions is as easy as looking at Google or Facebook reviews. 

Number of Years in Business

Along with reputation comes experience. A company with a long history in the community shows that they have the credentials with a background that can be trusted. 

Pest Control Services Offered

All pest control companies will offer general pest control, but are there other services available if needed? Other services might include, but are not limited to:

Communication and Customer Service

Contact the company. Are they easy to get in touch with? When you speak with them, are your concerns listened to and your questions answered thoroughly? Pest control is an ongoing relationship that you will want to ensure is a good long-term fit.

Value and Plan Options

A good pest control company offers quality services at reasonable prices. They are customer-focused and should provide plans to meet your individual needs and budget. If you have problems between treatments, do they offer to come back at no cost? Is their initial estimate free? Do they have any special offers?

These are all things you will want to inquire about when choosing a pest control company. Look for the company that not only checks all the boxes but makes you feel like more than just another customer.
