15 Dec, 2018 by admin
You’re sitting in your favorite lounge chair in your new home. All of a sudden something creepy goes scurrying across your living room floor! This is not a spooky Halloween story, this is a serious matter that should be dealt with.
As the temperatures get lower you may start to see more unwanted pests in your home. When the weather gets cooler some bugs may be looking for ways into your home for warmth. Spiders and insects are called pests for a reason! Some can be hard to get rid of! Some can bite, some can get into your food, and others are just plain gross and terrifying for some of us. Here’s the best thing to do when you encounter a pest problem.
Compare pest companies in your area. There are many pest companies to choose from, between those that are known nationwide to other local companies as well. Asking neighbors and family is always a good idea when searching for a pest company. Some may be able to get you a discounted rate for referring you, or they may get some incentive for the referral.
These are the main things to consider when looking for a good company.
It’s always a great idea to check for reviews and feedback from those who have already used the pest company you may be looking in to. The best way to check is by searching online, and by finding the company’s social media sites too. By checking these sites you can read what others have to say about the companies. Knowing who you may be dealing with and how hopefully their services are is a plus!
As you narrow your list for pest companies, see what each company has to offer as far as pricing goes. Some companies give discounts to seniors and military. Some companies may only work with long term contracts, while others may offer more lenient pay plans. Always check for added fees, and no bug guarantees as well. Some companies offer a guarantee with their service, if bugs continue to come they will come back and spray again if needed.
Another important thing to watch for is environmental, pet and child safe sprays. If you have pets, children or grandchildren in the house you will want to make sure that it is safe for everyone. Some companies now offer “green” sprays which are non toxic and better for everyone and the environment.
It’s best to spray for insects before you notice them, and to continually spray to keep them out. If you wait until you see lots of insects it may take even longer to get them out of your home. You don’t want to end up temporarily homeless while trying to rid your home of pests.
