How to Find a Reputable Local Pest Control Company

June 24th, 2015

Very few people can look up at the ceiling at the spider that is slowly inching its way towards their face and not feel at least a small chill run down their spine. It is not a great feeling, something that we at Champion Termite & Pest Control in St. Augustine, FL know a lot about. If you have spiders or other pests crawling freely around your house, it is time for you to hire a pest control company to take care of the problem. Here are 5 things to look for when you are trying to decide whom to hire.

License, Insurance, and Credentials

Look for a local company that has an up-to-date license, insurance, and credentials, including membership in national, state, and local pest control associations.

Comes Highly Recommended

Ask your friends and neighbors whom they have hired for pest control. This is a particularly good thing to do when you are looking for a reputable local company since many pests are common in one area or neighborhood.

Provides a Great Value

One mistake many people make when looking for a pest control company in St. Augustine, or any other service for that matter, is making their decision based on price only. Make sure that the company you use also provides a great value for what you pay for. Some companies charge a higher price but also include more protection or better contract terms, for example.

Provides an Education

It is important that you understand the severity of the infestation and how you can approach the problem going forward. A pest control company should arm you with knowledge and let you know if there is anything that you can do between pest control visits.

Guaranteed Work

Look for a company that guarantees their work. If they come and spray your home, and you find a family of spiders crawling across your dinner table a couple weeks later, the pest control company should come right back and spray again.
