How to get the best pest control service: a quick guide
There are many companies out there, all offering Caistor customers pest control services that they say are the ‘best’; they all seem to promise the earth with a variety of guarantees but how do you really know that their service is up to standard?
There are many factors to look for…
There is no doubt that exhibiting a range of qualifications in the field of pest control is important. Many of these qualifications will see technicians ‘licensed’ or able to use specialist methods, equipment and treatment for use in certain circumstances. For example, gassing is a method used only by certain pest control technicians, qualified and authorised to do so.
The Level 2 award ‘Pest Control & Management’ is a comprehensive course that trains pest control technicians in the eradication and control of all major pests found in the UK; it also covers the storage, transportation and use of professional grade chemicals for use in pest control situations. The vast majority of chemical pesticides and insecticides used are safe for use around areas frequented by people, children and pets; careful consideration also needs to be paid to ensuring only the pest is targeted, and not local wildlife.
On site survey
Having a phone conversation is one thing but if the pest control service you call diagnoses the pest over the phone, then they may be best avoided. No two infestations are the same and a professional, local to Caistor pest control service will attending a property to determine what the pest is and the extent of the infestation. Only at this point, can a technician decide on the best course of action.
Guarantee and insurances
Ask about insurances such as public liability and indemnity (common to all businesses, not just pest control companies), as well as any guarantees they offer for their work.
It is common for Caistor pest control services to offer a guarantee on their work, such as if the infestation is not successfully dealt with the first time, they will repeat a treatment for free. However, as with all guarantees and promises, check the small print…
Comprehensive advice and prevention
It is important that the source of the infestation is treated and that any steps that can be taken to prevent any future problems should be taken. For Caistor customers seeking professional and comprehensive pest control service, ask whether any prevention advice is included in the service.
Rats, for example, are a common issue in many places across the UK but often, the smallest of changes in habits and storage of certain items stop our homes, gardens, outbuildings, businesses etc. becoming such a nice place for rats to be!
And finally, knowing that the service is safe and comprehensive is one thing, but also knowing that methods and treatments used are humane is important too. It is illegal for anyone, including pest control technicians, to cause unnecessary suffering to any animal, pest or otherwise.
