Why should I hire a pest management professional when I can do it myself?
Do-it-yourself pest control is certainly an option, at least for homeowners and some businesses, but most homeowners and business owners lack the scientific knowledge and training needed to treat pest problems effectively. An essential component in treating a pest problem effectively is correctly identifying the insect species and developing a course of treatment that takes the insect’s biology and habits into account. It is also critical that the treatment materials used are handled properly to ensure effective treatment. A professional pest control operator has the training and expertise to do these things, leading to the most effective solution to your pest problem.
What should I look for in a pest control provider?
While there are many pest management professionals to choose from in Canada, they are not all the same. It is important to do some homework to ensure that the pest control provider you choose can handle your pest problem. Start by asking the following questions: Does the company have a good reputation? Are they knowledgeable about my business and the unique challenges we face regarding pest control? Do they have a thorough training program? Do they guarantee their work? Are they financially sound so they can back up their guarantee? Are they licensed? Are their employees security screened? Are they knowledgeable about the regulatory issues in my business pertaining to pest control, sanitation and related issues? My current provider has been spraying my facility for a pest problem, but the bugs keep coming back. What’s the problem? Effective pest control involves much more than just applying pesticide. To combat any pest problem it is critical to do a comprehensive inspection to correctly identify the pest, locate harborage areas and to identify possible entry points. All potential pest-entry points should be inspected and sealed if possible. Pesticides should be used only as needed and when targeting a specific pest species. Using pesticides improperly may even cause pest infestations to worsen. For best results, you may want to consult a pest management professional to take advantage of their knowledge and training. we offers free consultations. Schedule one today.
How does our service differ from pest management programs offered by other companies?
Many companies offer a cookie cutter approach to pest management – applying the same programs to every kind of business or home. we recognizes that every customer’s pest control needs are different, and the methods used to exclude or eliminate pests must be customized to each environment. we uses tailored Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs to help control pests. IPM calls for aggressive sanitation and exclusion before chemical control options are considered. By using technology like traps and surveillance techniques, IPM programs are effective and more environmentally friendly than traditional pest management programs that rely on pesticides only.
How do I know if the materials that a pest control operator is using are not harmful?
First, make sure that any company you hire is reputable, licensed and well trained to ensure that they are knowledgeable and responsible in handling pesticides. Pesticides must be registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) and can be used responsibly with little or no impact on people, pets or plants if they are used in accordance with labeled directions. If you have specific health concerns, medical conditions or sensitivity, ask your pest control operator for copies of the label that contains information on the active ingredients, level of toxicity and other information that you can discuss with your doctor.
