The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends always looking for “quality and value.” This means that price should only be one factor in selecting the best New Jersey pest control professional for the job. It’s much more important to choose a company that is experienced and reputable because using pesticides correctly will ensure the health and safety of your family.
It’s important to have all the information you need to feel confident of your choice. This should mean that the New Jersey pest control professional you choose is willing to provide you with a copy of their license and a list of all the chemicals that will be used on your job. Even if they claim that they are using “child-safe” and “pet-safe” products, it’s a good idea to look up every product up to double-check. Knowing how long the company has been in business is helpful, and checking with the Better Business Bureau to see if complaints have been lodged, is always a good idea.
Service contracts for monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly service are sometimes appropriate for particular types of pest control problems, such as roach control in urban areas, but it’s usually better to have periodic inspections rather than routine pesticide application. It’s important to fully cooperate with your pest control professional so that they can do the best job possible, quickly and safely. This means clearing areas as they suggest and following proper after treatment protocols.
