The professional should have a license issued by Environment Protecting Agency that certifies their competency and that they have the proper training in eradication pests. If a company can’t provide you with proof of license and registration, then it’s best to keep looking until you find a more suitable professional.
Removing pests from an area requires specialised training and methods, often involving the use of toxic products that need to be handled correctly. Make sure you hire a professional that has extensive training in the field of pest control services.
A company that has already build up a reputation for themselves will work diligently to provide you with excellent service and will avoid doing anything to jeopardise their good reputation. Word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool. And usually, when a company deliver exceptional service, clients will most likely refer them to friends and family in future. Be sure to check customer reviews online, as they can tell you a lot about the quality of service that a company provides.

Once you’ve received a quote, it should be transparent and free from hidden fees and costs. You should only have to pay the prices that were agreed upon and for which you have given your consent.
5. Service Guarantee
Being able to install traps for rodents is not enough. A professional company must be able to provide you with a guarantee of the service they can offer. They should be able to meet basic standards of quality and being able to provide aftercare services such as future support to entirely eradicate your pest situation safely and securely without causing potential harm to your household and pets.
6. Compare Quotes
It’s always advisable to compare quotes from a few chosen companies to understand the ongoing market rate and ensuring that you are paying the right price for the service to be provided.
Before hiring a professional, it is advisable to identify the pests and do research on how to maintain them. Pest management professionals often have access to management tools and effective pesticides that are not available to consumers. Therefore, a professional is needed to eradicate your pests effectively.
Always find out what types of services a company can provide for example monthly sprays or can they offer nonchemical methods.
Check if the company has the required licences, certificates, registration and insurance.
