How to Choose a Pest Control Company in Providence

By Debug Pest Control - 06/18/13

Whether you have noticed termite damage in your walls, or have swarms of hornets in your garage, your choice of pest control companies can have a lasting effect. The following tips will help you make an informed choice. Look for a few companies that meet all of these criteria, and then contact them for pricing.

  • Get recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors. Never ask a company for a referral. They will always give you a good one.
  • Look for membership in a professional organization. Membership in the National Pest Management Association and New England Pest Management Association gives companies access to training and current information as well as showing a commitment to the industry.
  • Look for experience. Check how long a company has been in business. Check for complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
  • If they have more than one technician, ask about the quality and the experience of the technician they'll be sending.
  • Ask what treatments and solutions they will recommend. Look for companies that use Integrated Pest Management. IPM practitioners use a variety of pest management techniques, of which pesticides are only one tool.
  • Are they available nights and weekends? Ask about their service plans, and how emergencies are handled.
  • Do they have low-toxic/green options?
  • Are they insurec? Any contractor you hire should have worker's and liability compensation coverage.
  • Do they have cool trucks?
  • Can they give recommendations on how to help keep homes pest-free?

Shop for value, especially for a termite control treatment or other protection plans. The lowest estimate may not be your best choice. Oh and... always get more than one estimate!
