Homeowners sometimes try to deal with pest control issues on their own but may find hiring a professional pest control company is a better choice in the long run. This holds true especially when a pest control problem is ongoing, a large infestation or requires the use of products only professionals are authorized to use. When thinking about hiring a Vancouver pest control company keep the following points in mind.

  • Technician – Proper identification should always be offered by any pest control provider and should include picture identification as well as a current license and identification.
  • The Company – You want to deal with a company that is bonded as well as insured to protect you and your property against liability. When you visit their website check to see if it appears to be professional and knowledgeable.
  • Knowledge – The technician or sales representative should be knowledgeable to answer all your pest control questions. If they don’t have a ready answer a promise to find out and get the answer is the best way to earn your trust. Better to have them offer to get an answer than give you false information.
  • Professional Appearance – First impressions count so you want a technician who shows up in a clean uniform and professional appearance. The truck, equipment and chemicals should look professional just as professional.
  • References – One of the best ways to find a professional pest control company is to ask friends, family or neighbors for referrals. Check out your local Better Business Bureau or local Pest Control Association, ask the company for references or see if there are some on their website.
  • Price – The lowest price quoted may not always be the best choice and you may wind up spending money and the amount you paid does not solve your problem. It might even be necessary to have a second company to fully deal with your pest issues. Be clear on what the price quoted covers before you sign on the dotted line.
