How to Choose a Great Pest Control Company
When you realize that you have a legitimate pest problem that may be beyond your ability to control, that’s when you must arrive at a decision: Do you call a pest control company? Fortunately, most companies offer a free estimate for pest control (as is the case with our own San Antonio pest control company), so you can receive a free examination and diagnosis of the problem before deciding. But what kinds of qualifications should you look for? Here are just a few to consider. Call us at 210-340-2847 with any questions.
Pest Control Licenses and Credentials
No matter what state you are in, you want a pest control company that is licensed to perform the service in that state. At BUGCO Pest Control, we are a Texas state licensed commercial pest control business (license number #0775148). That means we are licensed to perform treatments for general pest control and additional specialties, which we will list next.
A Range of Pest Control Services
Any pest control company you are considering should be able to offer a wide range of services, whether or not those are the services you need at the moment. So if you need a termite inspection or a bed bug treatment, you should probably choose a company that can also handle fleas, ticks and mosquitos – because what if those are the pests that decide to inhabit your home next time? You want a company that you can call no matter what the problem is. BUGCO is licensed to perform all of the following pest control treatments and many more:
- General pest control
- Termite inspections and termite treatments
- Mosquito misting systems
- Bed bugs
- Rodent control
A Multi-Faceted Approach to Pest Control
The buzzword here is integrated pest management. You want to choose a pest control company that knows how to use pesticides properly and safely, but you also want one that uses more than just pesticides. Integrated pest management is all about depleting pests of what they need to thrive: air, moisture, shelter, food, etc. This is the most highly recommended method of pest control, both in the industry and with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
BUGCO Pest Control is a San Antonio pest control company that has all these things, and we will be happy to share our expertise with you. If you have a pest infestation at your home, contact us to schedule a free estimate.
