Considerable Service Elements
Before you get any pest control done, there are several things you want to ensure are part of the arrangement. Pest control is one of those necessary services where unscrupulous businessmen have a habit of short-changing their clientele. Following are several considerations you should account for to help avoid this..
You shouldn’t have to “pay to play”, as the saying goes, when initially getting appraised for pet control services. This is going to be an affair that isn’t without reason, cost-wise; but it is a bit of an investment. The right pest control people can keep you guaranteed pest-free for five years.
Before you hire anybody, ensure that the estimate will not be an additional charge. Any business that can’t afford to do this either isn’t making enough money to continue any other way, or they’re just plain greedy.
Because pest control is a slight investment, you shouldn’t expect to require the services of a pest control agent after the “job is done”. Look for a guarantee of five years—or more—pest free. That way, if the guys miss a family of rodents accidentally, there’s no charge for them to come in and finish the job.
Fully Insured and Licensed Pest Control Agents
Rats carry a bevy of serious diseases. Ever hear of a little thing called the black plague? It’s worthwhile to think twice about terminating those rodents yourself. You could acquire a nasty condition if one manages to sink its nasty little rodent teeth in you, or transmit fleas—the carriers of black plague.
For these reasons, whichever service you use should have licensing and insurance. Insurance so that you’re not culpable if exterminators get bitten. Licensure to ensure they’ve got the acumen they claim, and are legally verified in it.
This one may seem a little bit trite, but it’s going to save you money in the long run. If a business has a satisfaction guarantee, they’re a lot more likely to cover their mistakes—or inadequacies—should either condition exist. Without a satisfaction guarantee, you might as well be in a modern preschool or kindergarten where “you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit”.
That’s a fine admonition for a young child. It’s a nice aphorism to remember when times get tough. But it’s not a rubric you should use to determine the extent of your acceptance when it comes to sub-par service; especially where rodents with fleas that may have black plague are concerned.
Biological And Environmental Safety
You want the service you end up choosing to be safe for pets, safe for you, safe for kids, and not hurt the environment. This is done primarily through what today might be called “old school” techniques; the twist being that they are often performed with modern upgrades.
A rat trap is like a mouse trap, only the means by which the rodents are lured have been upgraded. Once the rodents are eliminated, entry-points are closed up with things like steel wool, which rodents hate to gnaw on, and which is non-toxic to the environment.
The Importance Of Controlling Rat Populations
According to Green Rat Control, attic cleaning service is a very wise idea, because “rats, mice, and other rodents thrive in Southern and Northern California, and cause damage to attics and crawlspaces as well as carry diseases and parasites.”
They make a valid point, and history bears it out. Make sure whichever service you choose is as knowledgeable, and offers free estimates, a five year pest-free guarantee, a satisfaction guarantee, fully insured and licensed agents, and methods that are safe for the environment, kids, pets, and you.
