Navigating the Pest Control Maze: 7 Must-Ask Questions Before Hiring a Pro

So, you’ve had it with those pesky invaders wreaking havoc in your home, and you’ve finally decided to call in the cavalry – a professional pest control company. Bravo! But before you open the door to your knight in shining armor (or maybe a technician in a sturdy uniform), there are a few questions you should definitely ask to make sure you’re choosing the right ally.

1. Are You Licensed and Insured?

We’re all about superheroes, but your pest control partner should be more than just caped enthusiasm. They should have the proper licenses and insurance to operate in your area. Licensing ensures they’ve met the necessary requirements, and insurance safeguards you from any mishaps that might occur during the operation.

Answer: Yes, we are.


2. What Pests Do You Cover?

Termites, ants, roaches, rats – the party of uninvited guests can be diverse. Make sure your potential pest control company has experience dealing with the specific pests that are giving you grief. You wouldn’t call a knight to slay a dragon without dragon-slaying credentials, right?

Answer: We can treat all pests in Middle Tennessee.


3. What’s Your Treatment Plan?

Understanding the plan of attack is crucial. Will they just tackle the visible critters or go for the nest? Are they using chemicals, and if so, are they safe for kids and pets? A good company will walk you through their strategy, step by step.

Answer: Plans vary depending on the type of pest. We offer bi-monthly home protection plans.


4. How Do You Handle Re-Treatments?

Even the best battles might require a rematch. Ask how they handle cases where the pests decide to stage a comeback. Is there a follow-up treatment included? Will it cost extra? Make sure you’re prepared for any unexpected encore performances.

Answer: We come back as soon as possible.


5. Do You Have References?

A seasoned warrior has a track record of conquests. Don’t hesitate to ask for references or testimonials from previous clients. Hearing about others’ success stories can give you peace of mind that your home is in capable hands.

Answer: We have many references from homeowners, HOA’s, and business owners. Just ask, we will show you.


6. Is Your Team Trained?

Enthusiasm is great, but expertise is golden. Inquire about the training their technicians undergo. They should be knowledgeable about pests, treatment methods, and safety protocols. You want someone who knows their way around a pest-infested battlefield.

Answer: Continuing education is very important at Absolute Pest Control.

  1. What’s the Cost?

Ah, the coin of the realm! Get a clear picture of the costs involved. Is it a one-time payment or recurring? Are there different pricing tiers? Don’t forget to factor in the value of a pest-free sanctuary – it’s worth more than gold.

Answer: The cost varies by type of pest and infestation.

So there you have it, your arsenal of questions to fire at potential pest control company. Remember, your home is your kingdom, and you deserve a peaceful realm, free from unwanted guests. Ask these questions, evaluate the answers, and choose the company that not only has the armor but also the strategy to ensure your victory in the battle against pests. Onward to a pest-free future!
