If you’ve lived in Temecula for any length of time, you’ve likely seen a lot of different trucks and vans driving around town advertising pest control services. Some are from the larger national pest control franchises, while others are locally owned and operated small businesses. It can be tempting to call one of the well-known names in pest control, but that’s not always the best route.
So how do you choose a pest control company in Temecula? And what should you look for when doing your research on the various options?
Read the Reviews
Most people are used to looking at online reviews when researching service providers. They can be very useful for getting insight into the kind of service you can expect to receive from a company. Read both the positive and negative reviews and look for patterns. If a really good or a really bad review seems fake, it probably is. Most companies that have been around for a good length of time will have enough reviews that you can make a determination on whether or not they will do a good job for you.
Ask the Right Questions
After narrowing down your choices, it’s time to start talking to the companies in person. With most pest control companies in Temecula, you can schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. Someone will come out to your house for an initial inspection. Of course, they will try to sell you on their services at this time, but it’s also your chance to ask some questions.
Here are some questions to get you started:
- What methods will you be using to take care of my pest problems?
- What type of training do your pest control technicians receive?
- If I have a pest problem in between regularly scheduled services, will you come back out free of charge?
- How long has your pest control company been in business in the Temecula area?
