Pest Pros are not Created Equally; Help for Business Owners

Man and woman shaking hands

A pest infestation—anything from mice and rats to bed bugs or termites—can be the beginning of the end of a business. Restaurants and retail stores, hotels, office buildings, warehouses, factories, schools, and medical practices are at risk, which is why choosing the right pest control partner is so important.

Most business owners and facility managers aren’t pest control experts. Here are a few tips to help you get the help you need when it comes to pest management for your business.

What to Look for in Pest Pros

First and foremost, you want to choose a pest management company that is licensed and credentialed. Other things to look for:

  • Membership in national, state or local pest management associations, which is an indication of quality and a commitment to ongoing education.
  • Recommendations from other businesses, especially those in industries similar to yours. Ask for references and check them.
  • Liability insurance coverage in case the treatment results in any damage.
  • Detailed estimates that specify the pest species, the work and services that will be provided, and any guarantees or limitations.

While it may be tempting, don’t base your decision on price alone. You work hard on your business, and you don’t want that effort wasted due to the damage a pest infestation can cause, both in terms of your property and your reputation.
