How to Choose a Pest Professional
When selecting a pest control contractor, or any service provider , it pays to spend a few minutes researching this providers history and verifying that they have a proven track record. This small step can go a long way into avoiding a costly mistake
Guidelines In Choosing a Pest Control Company
Get 2 or 3 Estimates
Be an educated consumer and get a few estimates. It would be wrong to assume that all service providers charge the same price. Understand what the provider is offering in a written estimate will help you compare “apples to apples”. Resist the urge to make a fast decision out of panic because of a sudden insect infestation.
Check Reliability History
A quick check of the department of consumer affairs in your county and the Better Business Bureau can save you from a costly mistak. Make sure that the company you choose has a history of professional and reliable service. This would normally assure that you are getting what you were promised. Do an internet search for complaints and ask for referrals and testimonials. Should you wish to check our history at positive pest, see the independently posted reviews and read about us.
Review the Warranty
Try to use a company that has a long history of reliable service, since any warranty is worthless if the company you choose is no longer in business. Read and understand each company’s policy. Be sure to read the fine gray print on the back of contracts for hidden clauses and exclusions that would tend to negate any warranty protection
Insurance & Certifications
If the work to be performed is sizeable don’t hesitate to ask for copies of the company’s Liability & Workman’s Compensation insurance Certificates. You need to check that the work is being performed by a qualified technician that is State Certified. It will also extend the company’s reputation if they belong to industry associations such as the New York State Pest Management Association.
Price Protection In Long Term Contracts
Many pest control services require follow up visits and renewable contracts especially when dealing with termites and carpenter ants. Ask if your provider has a price protection guarantee to avoid being stuck in an agreement that can increase in price substantially over subsequent years

Understand how often treatments are repeated and how many treatments are covered in the contract.
