Do not be afraid to be forthright in your search!
Pest control companies offer a wide array of services, but many will specialize and excel in specific areas. Ask, ask, and ask again what types of experience they have in dealing with your specific problem
Ask what success they have had, and don’t hesitate to even ask for referrals.

And especially important for families and pet owners, be sure to ask if their services are kid and pet-friendly and if there are any precautionary steps you should take.

Make sure the company you use is properly certified and licensed. This is a very important factor in making sure you are using a safe and reliable exterminator.
You can double check this by asking them what kinds of licensing they have and if it is still current.
4. Don’t Be Afraid of Contracts
Many companies use long-term contracts as part of their services. It is important to be aware of the contract terms, but don’t let a contract scare you away.
Contracts can be beneficial for many reasons. One being, the company takes control of setting up appointments with you. This means there is one less thing on your plate to worry about.
Some companies even offer free follow-up services. This means that if you’re still seeing pests after their service, they will come back as many times as it takes to make sure those pests are gone for good.

Finding the right balance of price and quality is critical. Most companies offer free quotes and will talk you through their pricing.
