Here we evaluate the full array of services offered by any given pest control company, and the overall paradigm of the company. Broadly, this includes residential and commercial services, and whether a given company offers green pest control. We also look at whether the company operates its own staff, or farms out work to third party pest control technicians.

Pest Treatment

What kinds of infestations are a given company equipped to tackle? Most pest control providers offer services for ants and termites, but what about particularly difficult infestations, or regional-specific pests? Bed bugs, for example, are notoriously difficult to get rid of, requiring strict instructions the customer must follow between treatments in order for the control measures to work properly. In addition to spraying or fumigation, sometimes the entire environment outside the house must be altered eliminate conditions in which specific pests thrive. So it's not just a matter of counting the number of pests and wildlife species a company claims to be able to handle, it's evaluating the company's insect knowledge base and track record. Good companies will have their technicians trained by staff entomologists. Different varieties of the same species of insect, ants for example, might look the same but behave completely different.

Pompano Beach, Florida
The two young men that came to my home were very polite, very knowledgeable and understanding of my needs. After the contract was signed they immediately got to work explaining what they were doing and why. They completed the service very quickly, and I have not had a problem with ants since. I will forever use their company for all my needs! Thanks! Judith

I have used Terminix for many years for regular pest control as well as termite control and I have always been very happy with both the service and results. I have only had to call them back between regular quarterly service a couple of times and they are always prompt and efficient. I had the same technician, David, for many years, but he has now moved on and I am sure the new technician will be just as thorough and efficient. That is the way Terminix operates.
