“How much does pest control cost?” “What do you charge for a termite treatment?” These are questions that our technicians are frequently asked. Much to the dismay of the inquiring person, they usually don’t get a straight answer. Many times the beginning of a response starts with, “Well, it depends…” Pest control and termite control are situational based. These services have evolved and adapted over time to be customized based on the dynamics of your home. With a customized service, safer, more effective, and longer-lasting solutions to pest problems can be applied.
When considering pest control companies, don’t put too much emphasis on price. Okay, you may be on a tight budget and you certainly don’t want to spend a whole bunch of money for someone to spray for bugs around your home, but don’t fool yourself into thinking that all pest control companies are the same and go for the cheapest one. You can save yourself a lot of frustration and money in the long run by choosing a reputable company that emphasizes the service that it provides rather than the chemicals that they use.
All pest control companies have access to the same chemicals, reputable ones use knowledge, experience, and customer service more so than simply spraying pesticides. Consider these two responses to the questions posed above:
“I’ll come spray your house for $50 every 3 months”
“I will come inspect your home at no charge and then discuss treatment options based upon the findings of my inspection”
Which response sounds more professional? You don’t want to pay someone to come spray for bugs, you want to hire a trained professional to inspect, evaluate, and implement a pest management program. You want someone that is trained, knowledgeable, and can answer your questions honestly. You want a company that provides the right tools and resources necessary to get the job done. A professional pest service will strive to provide you with a pest free environment, and help protect your home, its contents, and the health of your family. Can you really put a price on that?
