“Mosquitoes are a problematic pest and serious health threat and cause people to retreat to the indoors.

Many think we’re losing the battle of the backyard, but we don’t have to.

We can call a pest pro to help us reclaim our backyard, but how do you pick the right pest professional for you?

Hi, I’m consulting entomologist Paul Bello and today I’m sharing tips on selecting the best pest pro for you.

Choosing a mosquito professional is an important decision.

These folks are going to come to your house, inspect your yard, analyze your needs, provide recommendations, and also apply pesticides.

They should work carefully, be well-trained, use good equipment, use efficacious product and techniques, and know what they’re doing, and be good at doing it.

But how do you know if you’re selecting the best professional for you.

Well, it’s good to do your homework and ask questions.

Are they properly licensed and insured?

Are they members of their professional trade association, such as their State or National Pest Management Association?

Do they have significance mosquito control experience?

And, can they provide you with references from other satisfied customers?

Remember that you will be initiating a formal business relationship with these people.

This relationship is ruled by the service agreement, or contract, between you and the pest professional.

Be sure you read it, and ask questions so you’ll know what’s going to be done and what you’re getting.

You’ll want to consider:

What is actually going to be done at your home to control mosquitoes?

Does the program’s plan make sense to you?

Do they provide recommendations, and are they properly explained to you?

Are your questions been answered to your satisfaction?

What results can you expect from this work?

Is there a guarantee or warranty?

Before you move forward with any pest professional, be sure to check their rating with the Better Business Bureau, Department of Consumer Affairs, and always get estimates more than one company.

Even better if you get a referral from a trusted friend.

Here in the United States, pest professionals are licensed for your State Department of Agriculture ³ , which has regulatory requirements under which they must operate.

You can check with the department website to learn about such requirements.

By following these tips, you’ll make the best decision on selecting the right pest professional for you and your mosquito control program.”
