How Do I Find The Best Pest Control Company Near Me?

June 28, 2022

You’ve just spotted signs of a pest infestation at your home or business. Whether it’s roach or rodent droppings, itchy bedbug bites, or crumbling, damaged wood caused by termites, you’ve realized you need to get the professionals in to deal with the problem. But how do you find the best pest control company near you?

Pest control professionals are a dime a dozen, but they’re not all up to the task. Some might even be better known as pest control unprofessionals! When it comes to dealing with bug or rodent infestations, you need the best in the business. 

Take a look at the following tips to find a pest control company that’s honest, reliable, and able to handle any pest-related problems at home or work.


1. Take Your Time To Find A Quality Pest Control Company

Discovering a bug infestation always is a nasty surprise, and it’s completely understandable that you would want to deal with it immediately. However, don’t rush into booking the first pest control company you find to come out and inspect your property immediately.

Take your time to find a pest control company that will do the job right the first time. Look for reputable companies that offer free inspections and free estimates, arrange for a few companies to inspect your property and give you estimates, and compare them. Twin-Boro Termite and Pest Control sets up free, same-day inspections if you call before 2:00 pm, so there isn’t too much of a delay when it comes to finding professionals you can rely on.


2. Get Recommendations For The Best Pest Control Companies

Pest infestations happen all the time, so you’re not alone. It’s not a judgement on your home or your workplace, and even if it feels like it at first, it’s probably not a plague of biblical proportions. Pest infestations are simply an unpleasant fact of life, and they’ve probably happened to some of your friends, family members, and co-workers. Talk to them about the problem and ask them which pest control companies they use.

Take note of their recommendations and then do research on them. Look up those companies on the Better Business Bureau and check out their ratings on Google and Yelp. This will help you to narrow down your options. Give those companies a call when you’ve narrowed down your options. 

Pay attention to the level of customer service you receive when you call them. Was the receptionist friendly? Were you able to speak to someone or did they place you on hold for what seemed like forever? Was the pest control professional you spoke to informative? All these factors should influence your decision, as you want to choose a company that puts your needs first.


3. Confirm Your Chosen Pest Control Company’s Qualifications

The last thing you want is a pest control company that is professional in name only. Once you’ve found a pest control company that you think is the best one to deal with the infestation at your home or business premises, confirm the company’s qualifications to ensure they’re the real deal.


Any pest control company that you work with should be licensed by the Pesticide Control Program of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The company should also be bonded so that if anything happens while their employees are on your property, they can reimburse you for any damages they cause. 

What’s more, the company should have other accreditation to boost customer confidence that they’re serious about being pest control professionals. For example, Twin-Boro Termite and Pest Control is licensed by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Pesticide Control Program. We’re also members of the New Jersey Pest Management Association and the National Pest Management Association, and we’re an accredited business with an A+ BBB rating.

4. Ask About A Guarantee

If a company is reputable, they will have no problem with guaranteeing their work. Before you agree to anything, ask your chosen pest control company what type of guarantee they offer, and find out about any “fine print” that you should be aware of. 

If the company doesn’t offer a guarantee or they are evasive about what exactly the guarantee entails, you should see that as a great, big red flag and you should find another company to do the job. 

For example, Twin-Boro offers a one-year guarantee on all wood-destroying insect exterminations that we do. Plus, the warranty is transferable should you sell your property.



Work With The Pest Control Professionals

Pest control issues usually happen when you least expect them, and it’s not easy to deal with those issues on your own. Having a good pest control company to turn to for help can make a huge difference.

It’s not always easy to find pest control professionals that you can rely on, but if you use the information in this blog, you should find that the process goes smoothly and results in you choosing the right company for your needs.
