In the Huntsville area, we face many pest problems. We have a pleasant climate through much of the year, allowing a large portion of the pest population to overwinter easily and begin to spread and invade in the spring. In our part of the country, we face heavier than average pressures from Termites, Ants, Spiders, and many other pests.
Because of high pest populations, many people in Huntsville choose to have a regular pest control service. A few important considerations when choosing a pest control company are:
- Look at the quality of the work the company performs. While price is important, it really doesn't make sense to pay someone to service your home, and then receive service so poor that you're not getting any value for the money you pay.
- Be wary if promises seem to good to be true. Most quality companies will offer a free retreat warranty if you sign up for regular service with them. Sometime high pressure sales people will try to convince you that with their service you will never see another bug again, inside or out. That expectation is out of line with what is realistic, and with what is safe and healthy to have around your home. You should expect pests to be controlled on the inside, and to a degree on the outside, but bugs are part of our natural environment. Most often sales people who make exaggerated promises are trying to sign customers up for an annual contract, knowing their promises won't be kept and that the customer will cancel as soon as possible. Look for a company that sets realistic expectations, and that keeps customers well after the initial contract period has ended.
- Be careful of companies that try to make you re-sign a new contract each year, or that make you sign multiple year contracts. A one year service agreement is standard in the industry. When companies try to force customers to resign a new contract each year it is usually because they are underperforming in their service.
