There are many pest control companies in Melbourne and simply choosing the pest control company that is the cheapest, or the company that appears first on the list, might not be your best choice. Each pest control company will work hard to deliver a superior service that is effective, reliable and cost-friendly.
In our blog titled “Which is The Melbourne’s Leading Pest Control Company?” we explained the many intangible benefits to be gained using a pest control company as opposed to ridding the pests on your own. In order to choose a good pest control company in Melbourne, it might be worthwhile asking questions to the pest controller, understanding their experience and assessing the scope of the services they will provide.
Here are 3 tips on how to choose a good pest control company in Melbourne:
1. Ask Questions
Any question is an important question. It is vital that you ask the questions that you have, relating to pest control, so that you feel comfortable with the pest controller providing the services. Pests are a nuisance and you want to be certain that the pest controller will target and remove all pests in your property. If you feel that the pest controller has difficulty answering your questions, this might suggest that they do not have the experience or knowledge.
However, be sure not to jump to conclusions! Sometimes it is hard for the pest controller to know how to respond to questions, such as:
- Why did the pests come to my property in the first place?
- Will the pests go aware forever?
- Why don’t supermarket products work?
Remember, the pest controller wants to help you. It will take them some time to understand the situation completely.
2. Do They Have Experience?
Even though the pest controller might have leading products and equipment, they might not have the experience to use them in all scenarios. Each property is situated in a unique environment and is subject to many internal and external forces that differ between properties. Pest controllers typically rely on their customer to provide a history of the pest problem so that they can develop their understanding of the issue. If you sense that the pest controller might be engaging in trial and error, consider asking the pest controller if they have a colleague who is more experienced to deal with the task at hand.
3. Scope of Services
You should engage a pest controller that provides the complete scope of works. This ensures that they are fully accountable for their work and do not rely on others to complete other aspects of pest treatment and control. Prior to engaging the company, sit down with the pest controller to understand exactly what they are going to do. There should ideally be a short-term treatment plan and routine and periodic inspections following the initial treatment to check on progress.
