When it comes to pest control, it’s important to be confident you’ve selected the right company. Here are five tips for choosing a pest control professional in the St. Petersburg area.

Check Qualifications

In Florida, all pest control companies require a license, and reputable companies will be members of pest management associations. Ask about a company’s credentials or involvement with associations to gauge its commitment to the industry.

Since each pest control situation is different, make sure the company you choose has an expertise (such as termites) in your particular problem. Technicians should be able to speak to the latest pest control methods and technologies.

Consider History

A proven history of success is crucial when choosing a pest control company you can trust. A company that’s been in business for a long time is doing something right. Moreover, you can be confident a long-standing business will be around for years to honor any service guarantees.

Read Reviews

Every pest control company will promote a few good reviews, but a company that has been in business a long time will have a lengthy list of all kinds of reviews. Read all the reviews before choosing a pest control company. Honest testimonials and reviews tell you exactly what to expect from a pest control professional.

Insist on Insurance

Pest control professionals create and perform complicated treatment strategies to eliminate pests that could affect your property. Make sure the company you choose is insured, which gives you and your contractor peace of mind.

Judge Professionalism

Pest control professionals often provide free pest inspections, which is the perfect time to judge the professionalism of their technicians. Commit to a company whose inspection leaves you feeling confident in a technician’s ability to handle your pest problem.
