There are hundreds of pest control businesses offering so many different pest control servicesthese days it can be confusing to find the right one at the right price. Some will offer you an internal pest control treatment while others will offer you an internal and external pest control treatment which comes with a 12 month warranty but for what insect and will they really come back if you see them? Will the 12 month warranty cover all insects like cockroaches, silverfish, ants, spiders, rodents and fleas. We know of some pest control companies will say they cover all insects but when you call them in 3 months time to say you have a problem you might find they are not willing to come back due to whatever reason they come up with.
Carpet cleaners are also now offering vacating tenants a free or discounted pest control treatment but there is a catch no warranty. So if there is a problem such as fleas or cockroaches still running around everywhere after you have moved out you may find this deducted from your bond unless you can convince your pest control company to come back and re treat free of charge? Professional pest controllers should be upfront with their customers and explain what is covered under their 12 month warranty. In saying that they just tell you what you want to hear just to get the job booked in.
Professioanl pest controllers should explain to all there customers what the 12 month warranty covers and if there is a problem they will come back free of charge. If they treat your home internally this would cover cockroaches, silver fish and spiders for 12 months. If you have a flea problem then you would receive a 3 to 6 month warranty. If you have your home treated for spiders externally then this would be covered by a seasonal warranty normally about three months. The reason why is due to weather conditions as storms and heavy rain can wash away our treatments therefore spiders can come back but this is what most pest control companies do not want you to know.
Cockroach treatments can vary depending on what cockroach species you have in your home. Generally the large cockroaches are easy to control but if you have the small german cockroaches then this cockroach treatment will require a call back to top up gel baits. You should be told this during the pest inspection or treatment and also be advised that there will be an extra cost due to a call back that is required.
Getting quotes over the phone is the norm so you have to ask the important questions before deciding who to go with. If the offer is too good to refuse then you will get what you pay for. For example! A pest control company offers a great deal on treating all insects inside and outside your home with a 12 month warranty using the cheapest insecticides available. Do not be fooled by this advertising gimmick as we all know they will not be come back and when they get into your home they convince you in adding on extra services that you do not need.
