The great thing about pest controllers is their vast range of expertise. Whether you have mice chewing your electrical cables, woodworm eating away at your floor boards or bed bugs keeping you up at night, all can be taken care of.
But, not all pest controllers are created equal. Some focus more on their bottom-line than customer satisfaction, by cutting corners to leave the customer with - on the face of it - a good service, only for pests to come right back often in greater numbers than before. Suffice to say, choosing the right local pest control company is very important.
So how do you sort the cowboys from the heroes? Here's some vital recommendations:
- Choose experience over inexperience
One of the best signs of a high quality pest controller is how long they've been doing what they do. We have been providing pest control services in Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire for over 20 years, for instance, and the reason we've been able to do that is because of the excellent service we've consistently provided our customers with.
- Choose proof - not claims
Anybody can claim to provide an incredible service; anybody can claim to be able to eliminate fleas; anybody can claim to be able to relocate bee hives, but unless those claims are backed up with proof, they hold no weight. So don't be afraid to ask potential pest controllers for testimonials/ examples of their past work; the good ones will give you them!
- Look out for accreditations and memberships
Accreditations and memberships are a sign of a reputable pest control company. We are members of Think Wildlife, the Professional Pest Controllers Register (PROMPT), the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and we are certified by The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). We are also Approved Contractors for Sovereign Chemicals and we are committed to the Campaign for Responsible use of Rodenticides (CRRU).
- Speak to them!
You can get lots of information about a company on their website, but you can't necessarily get a feel for them. The only way to do that is to talk to them on the phone. This will give you an opportunity to assess their knowledge, their professionalism and how friendly they are. You might also want to look out for how prominently they display their phone number; a lack of display may signify they'd rather not talk to you in person.
