How To Find A Professional Pest Control Company

The presence of insects and rodents in Minneapolis homes and businesses is not only stressful; left unaddressed pest infestations may lead to health problems and property damage. Choosing a pest control company to get rid of bed bugs, termites and other insects and rodents is not a decision to be made quickly or lightly. It should include careful consideration and should not simply be reached by calling the first company you come across.

Finding a local, qualified pest control company may be easier than you realize. Try asking around. Chances are one of your friends, neighbors or co-workers has employed an exterminating company to help them resolve a pest problem in the past. You should also check with the Better Business Bureau and peruse services offered and reviews on Angie’s List as well as on online directories such as Google, Superpages and Yelp. This should help you narrow down your search for local exterminators.

Once you have a list of companies who you feel are a possible match, start dialing. Calling these professionals and asking key questions will help you refine your list. Important questions to ask should include:

How many years have they been practicing their trade in Minnesota?

Do they carry liability insurance?

Are their technicians fully licensed?

Are references available?

What national, state or local pest control associations are they members of?

What experience have they had in dealing Diy Cockroach Pest Control with your specific pest problem?

Do they apply Integrated Pest Management techniques?

Do they have experience in dealing Preventive Insecticide with your specific pest problem?

How long will it take to complete a service and what does the treatment involve?

How much do they charge for their services?

What guarantees, if any, do they offer?

While cost of service plays a critical role in the selection process, you should give appropriate weight to experience and professional reputation. Look for a local company with a proven track record, excellent references and a great reputation in your community.
