Those of you who have been sitting with this pestilential problem for far too long can take a quick breather.
Help is most definitely around the corner. There are qualified and experienced pest control experts who continue to go the extra mile in at least drastically reducing the incidences of termite infestation among the residential areas and business nodes they service. They are in your neighborhood too. The best place to locate them, however, is still the internet. So, let this short advisory be your refresher towards successfully locating the right and professional termite help this time around.
Among a number of practical things you will be doing when utilizing your local internet service provider to best effect will be asking two important questions and doing the traditional compare and contrast exercise. The two important questions you need to ask your next termite control technician is whether he has guaranteed his services and can he provide at least a clearly understood inventory of what type of services or methods he will be carrying out going forward. Your compare and contrast exercise is based on your ability to proficiently compare the service record of no less than four pest control companies in your area.
By the time you have worked through these exercises successfully, you are almost there. When comparing companies, you will need to be specific. First of all, they should be readily available to service your neighborhood or business. They should also be available for emergency treatment. Termite extermination is an emergency requirement in any case. That brings us to the second specification. Most pest control companies will be treating numerous incidences of pest infestation. But do look out for those companies that are specialists in termite removal.
You will never know how it all works until such time you have asked the right questions. Two of those have been mentioned. If a company suggests that its inspection and treatment procedures come with a lifetime guarantee, do walk away. That is an unrealistic expectation. More realistic will be the offering of a one year guarantee. You will understand this realistic expectation a bit better once your professional technician has walked you through his schedule of work. And down the line, he is going to recommend at least an annual inspection.
Termites are formidable creatures. They may well make an attempt to return.
