What is domestic pest control?

Unfortunately, pest species are not just found in the woods, fields and farms of the countryside. Pests of all types have become incredibly well adapted to coexist with humans and will actively seek out food, shelter and warmth, which naturally brings them towards a more domestic environment.

If you have a pest problem at home, a property you rent or a relative’s house, you will require a domestic pest controller. Having pests within a domestic environment requires a specialist to ensure a swift and effective treatment of the pest issue.

Rodents and insects are the most common pest groups found within a domestic environment, both of which have very different methods of entry and living requirements.

What should you be looking for in a good pest control service?

Choosing the right pest control company can be a confusing task. Therefore, it is incredibly important that you find the company that you feel compatible with and will explain the process thoroughly.

The steps to finding the best pest control service

  1. Do your research, look at reviews and remember the bigger companies are not always the best!!!
  2. Once you have found a company, whether that be online, local paper, magazines or booklets, give them a call and ask for advice.
  3. A good pest control service should always have the time to talk, offer advice and reassure the customer.
  4. Always ask for an estimated price. However, if the pest controller is unable to do this, he may request a no obligation inspection of your property to provide a more detailed quotation.
  5. Ensure the pest control company has insurance, qualifications and a good understanding of your issue.
  6. Before the pest controller begins the work, he should explain the procedures fully, as it is important for the customer to understand the processes and any potential risks to the property, people and pets within.
  7. On completing a treatment, you should be issued with a treatment report, which will detail the work that the pest controller has carried out while on your property.

Like in any industry there are good and bad services. AgriPest will always have the time to talk or will rearrange a call back if we are on a job.

Our safe methods for household pest control

Our team covers a wide variety of pest and proofing issues. As a 21st century pest controller it is extremely important to be aware of current methods, laws, safety legislation and products available at our disposal. There are good pest control products that can be bought by the general public over the counter, but please be aware there are also many ineffective products. Simply installing poison does not always mean it will work. Many of our customers have contacted us after failed attempts to implement pest control methods. Not only do people often waste money on ineffective products but they also risk causing baiting resistance. This is when a pest becomes immune to the poison, which can make it more difficult to resolve the issue.

All pest species have to make their way from the outside in. This is where AgriPest can offer our specialist prevention expertise. We can identify and fix external building issues that will stop pests from accessing your property. Prevention is cheaper than the cure.

Agripest carry out one off treatments to combat wasps, ants and bees, as well as dealing with mice, rats, moles and squirrels. We also offer building proofing and repairs, supply of traps, fly killers, as well as good ideas and advice to help avoid a return of the problem.

Not all pest controllers are the same. People have misconceptions that it can’t be too hard but let us assure you, pest species are on the up. This is down to their ability to adapt and thrive in the surroundings humans create for them. Finding, identifying and removing a mouse the size of your finger in a house requires skill and ensuring it doesn’t happen again requires knowledge. When poisons are deployed it is extremely important that they are used safely to minimise the risk of contamination to adults, children and pets.
Don’t put your home at risk. Get the right company for the job. Call Agripest.
