Helpful Tips For Selecting A Good Pest Control Company



This summer’s bug problem is going to be bad, and with a huge population of nasty bugs, you’re going to need a good pest control company to keep them away. With so many pest control companies to choose from, picking the right pest control company can be tricky.

Here are a few helpful tips, or things to look for, when selecting a good pest control company:

Power Spray


Some pest control companies just treat with a backpack sprayer, and that will not get the job done. Power-spraying the home’s foundation is the only way to properly treat it for pests. What a power-spray treatment will do, is place a heavy amount of product around the foundation of your home. The pressure coming out of the hose will help penetrate or push the product under the rocks, and soil around the home; where most bugs will live. Select a company that offers a power spray service.



With an outside treatment, a power spray will put a barrier around your home, but won’t kill the pests at the source. The main source of the pest problem will be at the base of the plants and trees. This is where pests will get food and water to survive. Properly granulating these areas will effectively control the pests from infesting your home. Look for a pest control company that treats pest with granules.

In Wall Treatment 


On the inside of the home, a lot of pests will infest inside the walls. If the pests do get inside the walls, an infestation will occur; and if not properly treated the infestation will only grow. A company that does an in-wall treatment will place a product directly inside the walls of the home. This is done by taking the face plates of the outlets, and dusting inside the walls. This will help kill any of the pests trying to infest inside the walls.

Good Reviews 


Checking to see how well a pest control company rates among other competitors is a good way to see how customers view the company’s service.  The best way to do this is check online. Good places to look for customer reviews include: Google, Yelp, Better Business Bureau, and Family Owned Pest Control.
