When you find a pest – insect or rodent – in your home, it is easy to be overcome by a feeling of panic. No one wants to see a cockroach scurry across their floor, or find half eaten granola bars in the back of their pantry. But instead of rushing to call an exterminator, we recommend taking a moment to clear your head and jot down a list of questions for the professional that you call. Here are just a few of the most important ones to ask:
How is treatment performed?
Each pest control company works differently, and it is important to know what procedures will be taken to handle your problem.
- Will there be an initial consultation to review your home and find where exactly the pests reside?
- Will non-chemical measures be attempted before applying chemicals inside of your home?
- Will technicians return to ensure that all pests have completely eliminated from your space?
Knowing the ins and outs of your treatment plan will help to ensure that the job will be done right.
What chemicals will be used?
In many situations, chemical treatments are required to completely remove insect or rodent pests from your home. Obviously, this can be a major concern for homeowners, especially individuals with pets and young children. Because of this use of chemicals in the extermination process, it is important to ask what chemicals will be applied, how they will be applied and how long you must wait before returning to your home.
What happens if the pests come back?
While you probably don’t want to think about the possibility of pests returning to your home after their extermination, you do want to make sure that you are completely covered if they do! Talk to your potential exterminator before hire to ensure that they will handle your problem efficiently and continue to provide support in the months that follow.
