Finding an infestation of insects, wild animals, and other critters in and around your Arizona home can bring on a knee-jerk reaction. You are anxious and eager to anyone and at any cost to rid your home of pests. 

Before merely choosing the first company you see on the web or calling the phone number on an advertising flyer dropped off at your door, take a breath and some time to do a little homework. 

You want to be sure the company you choose handles the specific issue you are experiencing at your Phoenix home.

Local Phoenix Pest Control Methods

You want a company that uses safe, environmentally friendly pest control methods. Ask what chemicals they use in their applications. Is it toxic to humans and animals?

Can the company ensure its methods only affect the pest and no other animal or human? You would not want a child or an animal to get access and ingest the toxic substance. 

If you have ever had a neighbor scatter rat poison in their yard or place bait boxes near your fence, you know how nerve-wracking it can be. You worry that the poison will not only eliminate rats but will be carried into your yard to harm your children, dog, stray cats, birds, and squirrels.

Ask if any non-chemical alternatives are available. If not, find out what steps you should take to safeguard yourself and your family. Is the company willing to recommend tips to keep pests at bay after the company leaves?

  • Customer Service
    Company representatives should respond to your questions and clearly explain the company’s services. Ask if the company guarantees its work. A reputable company stands behind its work.

    The company should be responsive after applying pesticides. If you believe the pesticide or the application method caused unintended harm, do not hesitate to ask the company to rectify the problem. Also, consider calling the Arizona Department of Agriculture’s Pest Management Division.  
  • Experience
    Knowing how long the company has been in business and the breadth of its experience can help you decide if it is a good fit for your Phoenix home. 
  • Licensed, Insured?
    Be sure the company’s pest control license is current. Ask to see its license and proof of insurance. Company employees should be bonded and insured, which protects you if they damage your property or hurt themselves while working at your home.
