Pest control is not an issue that you want to play around with. When you find that there’s been an infestation in your home, whether it be termites, ants, rats, cockroaches, or anything else, you want those critters gone as soon as they possibly can be.
So who do you call? A quick search for extermination services in your area will yield loads of results, but you’re the one that has to make the decision on who to call. Here are a couple of questions to keep in mind when you’re looking for the right pest control company.
Are your pest control treatments safe?
Some popular pesticides have been shown to contain chemicals that are harmful to plants, animals, and people that they aren’t intending to target. Ask your chosen pest control company if their products are:
- Environmentally friendly
- Up to the latest standards of performance
At Dugas Pest Control, we take humane approaches to pest removal whenever possible, and never endanger our customers or the plants in their yard with toxic chemicals.
How do you decide your method of treatment?
Every home and every infestation is different. Ask a company that you’re considering what their method looks like when taking on a new client.
Our approach starts with a primary inspection, after which we develop a plan to make a return visit equipped with the right equipment and gameplan to remove the pests from your property and ensure that they don’t come back. Additionally, we will send a technician back to your home as many times as is necessary to rid your home of unwanted vermin.
Can I see reviews?
