Residential and Commercial Pest Control
The words “family” and “home” are almost interchangeable. Similarly, choosing the right exterminator is a lot like choosing the right doctor. You trust your doctor with your family’s life; you trust the security and safety of your family’s home to your exterminator. The process of selecting a qualified, responsible, and caring exterminator from the dozens of people who claim to be exterminators is not something that should be taken lightly. There are certain things to look for an exterminator that can make this search a little easier for the responsible parent and homeowner:
All real exterminators, whether specializing in termite services or rodenticides, will have a state registered license, just as your doctor does. We tend to take for granted the fact that doctors have their license; we tend to think the same way when dealing with exterminators: after all, if they can get the expensive, highly regulated termiticides and pesticides that they need to do their job, they must be licensed, right? Wrong. Make sure you ask any potential exterminator to show you his license, and request a photocopy of it with the final invoice. More info here @ https://jenkinspest.com/pest-control/
ou’re in the right place: we link to only the best exterminators and termite control services. Those that are serious about getting a quality exterminator for the protection of their home are often barraged with estimates hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars lower than legitimate termite services could possibly cost. We collect exterminators license numbers, communicate with past clients and the Better Business Bureau in their area, and finally, if the company passes our requirements, we will post them in our “find a termite exterminator” section.
Don’t just look at the bottom line. Take a close look at the estimates you receive—the prices your potential exterminators outline in their estimates should be very descriptive, explaining exactly what materials are being used for what purpose, how much of that material is being used (in measurable units) and at what price per unit.
It takes one to know one… The best trick in the book is to invite your top two choices for your home exterminator to a meeting—without telling them the competition will be there. Once everyone is gathered together, have them exchange estimates. No one is better at finding faults in an exterminator than another exterminator. If you can’t decide on just two, that’s okay; invite everyone who gave you an estimate. As long as you don’t mind cuss words, nobody’s going to get hurt. The exterminators who cut corners on their estimates will probably get up and leave out of embarrassment, anyway.
Spare no expense. This doesn’t mean cancel your medical insurance so you can afford an exterminator, of course, but legitimate expenses for termite control and treatment services will probably range into the $3,000 area before becoming really overpriced around $4500-$5000; and that’s just for preventative treatment.
Don’t go corporate. There are plenty of exterminators who are just as qualified—if not more so—than the large corporate names you know so well. To top it off, when you pay for a large corporate extermination service, you’re paying mostly for the name—just like a pair of jeans with a certain name on the rear costs more solely for the use of the name. That’s what franchises are; individuals using a common name to promote their reputation. Why pay for that?
Whoever you choose, make sure you have a good rapport with them. Termite control is not an easy business, and it’s not a black and white occupation; the exterminator you choose may be the best, but he is still contending with the forces of nature—much like your doctor.https://jenkinspest.com/
