If you are dealing with termites, roaches, rodents, or other pests, you’ll need the help of a qualified exterminator to take care of the problem and make your home safe and comfortable once more. However, it can be difficult to know who to hire for the job. Our team at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control has been in the extermination industry for many years, and in that time, we have learned a thing or two about what makes someone right for the job, as well as what makes someone wrong for it. To help you get the top-notch service you deserve, in this article we’ll go over three signs that you need a new exterminator.
- Your current company’s technicians don’t take safety seriously. The chemicals that exterminators work with are very strong, and can do serious harm to you, your family, your pets, and your belongings if they are not applied properly. With this in mind, if your current pest control technicians do not wear the right safety equipment, you should look for a new company, as the one you have clearly doesn’t make safety a priority for themselves or anyone else. At the very least, a pest control technician should wear long pants and sleeves, as well as gloves and eye protection.
- Your current exterminator misrepresents what products they use. Another sign that you need a new exterminator is your current one not being honest about what types of treatments they are using. For instance, some exterminators claim to use all natural or organic products, but actually apply synthetic ones. Our team believes that you deserve to know what is being used in your home, and we will never go against your choice for natural vs. conventional treatments.
- You still have pests. Lastly, if you receive regular pest control treatments but still see pests frequently, it’s time to switch to a new exterminator who can actually get the job done. While you may still see the occasional pest even with treatment, if you are still seeing a large number of roaches, ants, or other nuisances, we encourage you to give our team a call.
