It is not unusual for a home to be invaded by pests and when this happens it is always best to hire a professional pest control company. There are numerous choices, it is always best that you take time to discuss your problems with several companies before you commit. Even if the problem you have is urgent, it is still in your best interests to hire a reputable company, one recognised as knowledgeable, dependable and safe.

Evaluate the companies based on established guidelines:

1. The company: It is important that the company you eventually hire is licensed and insured. Although you hope you do not encounter any problems, dealing with a licensed, insured company can protect you and your property against harm.

2. Knowledge: When you are discussing your problem with the technician or sales representative they should be in a position to provide answers to your questions. Pest control is somewhat scientific, different approaches are often required depending on the pest and the degree of infestation.

3. Appearance: The technician should be properly dressed in a company uniform and present himself in a professional manner. A professional appearance should carry through to the vehicle and equipment.

4. References: Pest control is a service and as such it can be difficult to assess the quality. Always get the company to provide you with references and follow-up on them. It can also be beneficial if you discuss your needs with neighbours, friends and family members who have hired a pest control company in the past.

5. Price: One of the most important basic guidelines for hiring a pest control company is to understand that the lowest price does not automatically represent the best deal. You want to deal with a company that stands behind their reputation for effectiveness and quality. It is of no value to hire a company on price only to find out that your problem continues to exist.

6. Service: Before you commit talk openly with the technician, find out exactly what the problem is, where it is and why you have the problem in the first place. If it is deemed necessary have the company inspect your home and develop a professional treatment plan.
