How to Choose a Pest Control Operator


Household ants, fire ants, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, termites, wood-destroying beetles, gnats and flies, clothes moths and carpet beetles, and stored product pests are some of the common pests that people encounter in and around homes. While most are merely a nuisance, some pests can cause serious damage to our homes or property. Other arthropod pests bite, sting, and transmit disease-causing agents.

Insects and other arthropods can fly, crawl, or be carried inside a structure. In the Southeast, different pests are a problem during different months of the whole year. Year-round pest management programs are needed for control of these general pests.

If you do your own pest control with a single product, control will be difficult because controlling pest infestations requires multiple products and methods.

Many people elect to contract the services of a pest control company to take care of their pest problems. Pest Control Operators (PCOs) who are licensed in the state of Alabama must take and pass an examination administered by the state. In order to maintain their license, they must attend training on a continual basis.

There are many pest control companies in the state. The following are some guidelines to help you choose the best pest control company for you. Whichever service you need, read and understand the contract you sign. Ask the salesperson to clarify anything you do not understand or with which you do not feel comfortable. Check with the Better Business Bureau or a present customer of the company to make sure the company you select has a good record.

Pest control services can be separated into two different categories. The first category is "general household pest control" (also called "pest control" in the industry); the other category is "termite control."
