Control grows its
business by offering highly
reputable eco-friendly services and happy customer referrals. (National
companies will most always be more expensive, covering the high costs
associated with national advertising and hard to monitor field reps.)
Control may only need to
visit your location
once; or, once per year; or, when a specific pest's mating cycle
requires a follow-up appointment to ensure full elimination; and/or
when pest life cycles within problematic neighborhoods require periodic
visits (until fully eliminated). (National companies tend to
push unnecessary "periodic maintenance treatments"

regional company (est. 1985), and are not burdened by heavy marketing
campaigns directed by a headquarters somewhere.

will most likely be small established companies and/or large national
franchises. Therefore, you will need to consider the capabilities of
the service technicians within your area, and whether their training
and expertise will ensure full (and safe) elimination of the pests
you've come across (nuisance and/or dangerous).
contacting a pest control service:
Select a company based upon their reputation, amount
of business time within your community, and willingness to answer your
questions. You have the right to ask for written materials
describe the problem and how it will be treated; including what
chemicals will be used and in what amounts.
ASK if they have experience with the
situation for which you need services. Companies differ in the range of
pest situations they routinely handle. This is expecially true for less
common pests, or situations that require specialized equipment like
some termite applications and/or structure fumigation.
Do NOT select a pest control company simply based
on price alone, an advertisement
you've seen, or the "deal
of the week". Be cautious of unsolicited sales pitches and never
select treatment just because your neighbor's property is being treated
or because there is "leftover spray from another job". Get
references and check them.
Don't be pressured into an immediate
take time to gather information and make a good decision. (Due to
mating cycles, pest infestations normally don't require an immediate
treatment.) Most of the time a delay of a few days or weeks, better
fitting your schedule, won't make any difference. However, we
understand that peace-of-mind and restful sleep can require immediate
action, and that's okay. Our service technician trucks/vans are
properly maintained and house the proper equipment and materials to
safely eliminate unwanted pests (common or rare), immediately, or upon
a date that best fits your needs and schedule.
Be cautious of false claims of "secret
formulations" or negative comments about competitors. Be also cautious
of exterminators claiming to have endorsements by local government or
university personnel, as such personnel are not permitted to make
specific recommendations about companies and/or products!
