Finding The Right Exterminator

Getting references from the company may seem like one way to find a reliable pest control company, until you tell yourself that any company is probably only going to give you a carefully selected reference list, to ensure positive feedback.

Checking your chosen pest control company with your local Better Business Bureau is a must if you are looking in the Yellow Pages for a company. Listen to what your BBB has to say about a particular pest control company; if they report that there are complaints against that company, it may be an indication not to use them. And talking to a person at the BBB is probably a better and more accurate approach than simply using their website.

The National Pest Control Association has a handbook containing procedures that are approved, and any good exterminator should follow that guideline, which means no dubious work practices, and not charging customers for work that’s not approved or needed. A guarantee for a specific time period should be offered by a reputable pest control company, and maintaining that guarantee should take a reasonable and affordable yearly payment. Pre-treatment for new construction, along with yearly inspections for termites should be included, and if you ask to see an insurance certificate, you should expect to be supplied with one.

Recommendations are always a good idea too when choosing a Vancouver pest control company; perhaps from the realtor, you bought the house from, or from friends or family. Talk to the exterminator who processed the original termite certificate if you’re buying a house and find there’s a termite issue. It can save you money, and they should have access to the home’s history.

When you and the salesperson come to an agreement, make sure that agreement is understood by the technician who visits your home, who may not be the same person you originally dealt with. Helping you deal with your termite issue as quickly, effectively, and as economically as possible is the goal of any reliable exterminator, and you should be sure that any procedure is what you actually need. You may pay more when dealing with a salesperson who may or may not have a similar work ethic.

A good exterminator really does focus on getting the job done properly, rather than focuses on the sales side of things although many pest control technicians seem to be more salesperson than a technician. Using as few chemicals as possible and simply solving your pest issue as economically and as efficiently as possible should always be the goal, and it’s something you should be aware of.

Exterminators will charge different prices, and have different approaches to the job, as exterminating isn’t an exact science. You really shouldn’t have to tell your pest control technician that you want the problem to be treated as economically as possible and without using more chemicals than is necessary, but you may end up pointing this out. Some treatment options are somewhat suspect or even unnecessary, and of course, you don’t want anything to do with these.

It’s important that you are actually present in your home to discuss the procedure and have any questions answered when the exterminator shows up at your home. You don’t want to delegate the job of dealing with the exterminator to your spouse, babysitter, or anyone else. It’s much easier to deal directly with the pest control expert yourself, so you understand exactly what is happening and also to make sure you aren’t charged more than you were initially told. And it’s also important to make sure you get answers to your questions, and any concerns you have are addressed, as it’s likely to be an ongoing relationship with this exterminator.

Getting an estimate for the work to be carried out is an important part of dealing with a pest problem and choosing the right exterminator. You should be given a written quote in person or at least soon afterward, if a pest control technician visits your home to assess the problem. And you don’t need to make a decision immediately; remember the points above that we have been discussing and keep them in mind when trying to find a reliable and experienced pest control company.

Choosing A Good Exterminator

You want to make sure that the exterminator you work with does a good job and that your home is protected from pests as much as possible. However, you probably have questions when trying to decide on who to call to tackle your pest problem, such as the amount of experience the company has, their overall effectiveness, and of course whether they are reliable. Here’s what to look for:


The regulatory office in your state should be able to tell you just what qualifications a locally based pest control company should have; once you know that, you can make sure the exterminator is actually qualified. Make sure the exterminator is qualified and experienced to carry out a particular job, as different qualifications are sometimes needed for different jobs.

Having a certified entomologist on the company’s staff is a useful thing to check on, along with whether they are familiar with the techniques of Integrated Pest Management. This means that the process of getting the pests out of your home will use as few toxic materials as possible, and instead focus on more scientific methods. Regular renewal is needed to maintain certification as a certified entomologist, meaning you know the company is up to date with the latest training and any new guidelines put in place.


Your family or friends may be able to recommend the pest control company they use and explain why they would recommend them.

And remember that the exterminator will be spending time in your home, meaning that you want to work with someone who is reliable, respectful and honest, as well as able to explain the process clearly to you. You don’t want to feel uncomfortable or anxious when the exterminator is going through your home and perhaps looking at your valuables or closed-off spaces. The experience is much more positive if the pest control company is respectful, professional, and presentable.


Of course, it’s important that you are getting your money’s worth from any pest control service, which means shopping around and comparing costs before making a final decision. As well as choosing a pest control company that you can afford, you also want one that is reliable and will get the job done safely and efficiently; it may be worth it to pay a little more for reliability and expertise. A reliable extermination company is also upfront when it comes to their fees and charges, and will be able to give you a written estimate that’s specific to your pest situation. If you don’t understand the charges or you don’t get a written estimate, that may be a red flag.

It’s especially important to shop around to make sure you get a fair rate for the work carried out if you are a landlord who owns more than one property and is having the work carried out in several places. The pest control company you choose should be able to meet all your needs, regardless of the number of affected properties.
