Decide on the Type of Exterminator You Need

Some of the varmints and creepy crawlers that often need exterminating or removal are:

    • Termites
    • Ants
    • Bed bugs
    • Fleas and ticks
    • Flies and mosquitos
    • Birds and bats
    • Mice, rats and rodents
    • Gophers and moles
    • Roaches
    • Spiders
    • Stinkbugs
    • Bees, hornets and wasps
    • Wildlife removal

Often price and personal preference are determining factors when selecting a pest control contractor.  Name recognition may also come into play as there are several national brands that advertise heavily on television.  However each Wickliffe OH service has its own unique characteristics related to experience, reputation and fees for service, so it is important to do your due diligence before making a final choice.

How to Choose The Right Pest Control Company

It doesn’t do any good to choose the cheapest Wickliffe OH exterminator if the pests return within a short period of time and the contractor is nowhere to be found.  The old adage You Get What You Pay For applies to pest control just as it does to other services, but paying too much is not a wise choice either.  So let’s take a look at some tips to make sure that you hire the right pest control professional at the right price for the job.

  • Get at least 3 estimates in writing. Just as with hiring any contractor, you will want to interview 3 or 4 Wickliffe OH exterminators and review each of their estimates.  Make sure that the bids include materials or chemicals to be used and any special circumstances that need to be addressed. If the contractor provides a warranty, find out the length of the guarantee as well as what is covered.  For prolonged projects, the timeline and payment schedule should also be addressed.  Never accept a proposal that requires full payment upfront.  A reasonable deposit is acceptable to cover upfront material costs before starting.
  • Ask for and check references. Before making a selection, ask the Wickliffe OH contractors to provide references from customers that they have worked with fairly recently.  If they have to dig way back into the archives to find someone, it may be a red flag.  Ask them to provide references for similar jobs if possible.  If most of their jobs involve insect extermination and you have a gopher problem, it may not be the right project for them.  And when speaking with their past customers, ask not only have they been satisfied with the quality of the pest control service, but also any follow up service that they may have had.  Ask if they would recommend the contractor to friends and family or if they would use the company again.
  • Invite them to your home. Before hiring a contractor, arrange an in-home inspection so that you can meet the exterminator in person and discuss your situation.  The Wickliffe OH pest control contractor should outline his method for treating or removing your pests, any pesticides that he will use as well as potential hazards involved.  He should also be able to offer tips on avoiding future infestation as well.  Be wary of any contractor who provides a quote sight unseen unless it is a very basic job.
  • Check out their reputation. Contact your regional or Ohio pesticide regulatory agency, as well as the Ohio Attorney General to see if any of the Wickliffe OH contractors have had complaints filed against them.  Also, check local consumer organizations such as the Better Business Bureau or Google + Local online to find out what their local reputations are for service.
  •  Check insurance and licensing. It is important before making that final selection that both your home and the workers involved in the project are protected.  Ask to see proof of insurance for both liability and workers compensation.  The liability insurance will protect you against any damages that may occur, especially with chemicals.  The workers comp will protect the contractor’s employees should they be injured while on your property. It is also important to find out if the contractor meets all local and state codes regarding licensing and special certifications.  A reputable Wickliffe OH pest control company will have their insurance and licenses in order and available for your review.  Also, ask about any Professional Pest Control Associations they are affiliated with as this will provide a good indication as to their commitment to their business as well as keeping updated on training and safety methods.
  • Get a written contract. Once you have completed your due diligence and have selected a qualified Wickliffe OH pest control contractor, get a written contract detailing all of the important points we have discussed.  A signed copy of the initial written estimate may suffice as long as it covers all important details.  Congratulation!  You are well on your way to having your pest issues taken care of by an experienced, licensed and affordable pest control specialist.
