Most homeowners in Phoenix (and everywhere else, for that matter) would love nothing more than never having to call in Pest control Phoenix experts to begin with – calling in these professionals means that you are dealing with a serious infestation of creepy crawlies, and nobody wants to have to deal with that.
Pest control Phoenix company scams you don’t want to get stung by
Unfortunately, in the real world, pest problems can pop up almost out of nowhere. Hiring the right pest control Phoenix company to come in and get rid of in infestation is mission-critical, though you have to be very careful about the company that you decide to move forward with.
You see, there are quite a few different pest control companies in the Phoenix area promising the moon in the stars when it comes to the results that they deliver – while guaranteeing that they are fully licensed and fully insured to do this kind of work – when nothing could be further from the truth.
Some of these smalltime operations are little more than people with pickup trucks and potentially deadly chemicals spraying all over your property with no real training whatsoever. You obviously don’t want to have to deal with the headache, hassle, expense, and potential risk to your short and long-term health that these less than legitimate pest control companies bring to the table – which is why you want to find the right professionals to help you from the start.
Here are just a handful of scams you want to keep your eyes peeled for to make sure that you are only ever working with the very best of the best when it comes to pest control in Phoenix.
Take a close look at the licenses Pest control Phoenix companies carry
Because most homeowners will never do business with pest control companies that aren’t carrying full licenses, scammer companies have started to print their own fake ones to earn the trust of unsuspecting customers without ever having gone through the legitimate licensing process in the first place.
It doesn’t help that some states have different licensing regulations than others, allowing these less than legitimate companies to get a legitimate license in one state and then carried over into another where it is no longer legitimate – working off of the license anyway in an effort to buy fake confidence.
It’s critical that you ask to more closely inspect the license that a Phoenix pest control company offers, that you take time and care to write the license number down when you are able to inspect it, and that you verify that the license is legitimate and that all individuals that come to your home to spray pesticides are carrying licenses for that equipment as well.
Don’t settle for an otherwise professional pest control Phoenix company that carries “umbrella” licenses, allowing their technicians to go unlicensed while working under the business license.
Beware of major pest outbreaks during the initial home inspection
The odds are pretty good that you are fully aware of the pest infestation that you are dealing with, which is why you are contacting pest control companies in the first place.
You most likely have evidence of the pests that you are looking to get rid of, understand (in a general sense) where these pests are coming from and where they are nesting, and are pretty sure of what kind of pests they are and the trouble that they are making.
This is all critically important, as less than legitimate pest control companies in the area aren’t going to be shy about “discovering” major pest infestations that you hadn’t noticed before in an effort to get you to upgrade your service, pay for services you didn’t anticipate having to move forward with, or lock you into long-term contracts to get rid of pests that aren’t ever going to go away.
If you’re inspector brings these kinds of issues to your attention ask that they show you the major issues personally. Legitimate companies will be more than happy to show you exactly where these problem areas are popping up whereas less than legitimate companies will do everything in their power to dissuade you from getting eyes on the “terrible situation”.
Be wary of permanent Pest control contracts in Phoenix
There is one thing that a lot of less than legitimate pest control companies in Phoenix love to lock people into, and that is the long-term pest control contract that requires you to pay every month for services rendered – whether or not you actually need them.
These kinds of contracts give the Pest control Phoenix a lot of leverage and a lot of “free money”, giving them the opportunity to come to homes that have already been serviced and essentially work for nothing – spraying next to nothing – but promising they are protecting your home from pests coming back.
Sure, these kinds of contracts are usually sold to customers that want to get the peace of mind of never having to worry about insect infestation ever again, but you have to understand that most of these infestations are going to be destroyed the first time that the pest control company comes out and you are paying for nothing with these permanent rollover contracts.
On top of that, it is ALWAYS less expensive to call a pest control company out to fight back and infestation when you are actually dealing with one as opposed to paying every month whether or not you have any problems. If you have a pest infestation problem later down the line you’ll have the opportunity to work with the same company – or other companies – to get you the results that you are looking for, and you don’t have to worry about blowing a significant amount of money along the way when they aren’t actually helping you.
Keep all of this inside information in mind when you go to hire a Pest control Phoenix company. It will help protect you against scammer companies but it will also help you protect against pest infestations as well.
Good luck going forward!
