3 questions you should ask before hiring a pest control company

If you’ve arrived at this page, chances are, you have a pest control problem.


And, right now, you might have three questions:

#1: Do you need a pest control company? Or can you solve the problem yourself?

#2: Why hire Pest Exterminators Cambs rather than another pest control company?

#3: How much is it going to cost?


So let’s take these questions one-by-one…

#1: Do you need a pest control company? Or can you solve the problem yourself?

For most pests, you definitely want to call in professionals.

There are two reasons why. First because, for some common pests – like bed bugs – there are no good home treatments.

But also because home remedies tend to treat the symptoms of the problem, but not the cause of the problem.

So, for example, if you have an ant infestation, you can spray the ants – and that’ll kill some of them. But there’ll be more ants the next day.

What about mice?

Maybe you’ve already tried using mouse traps – and found they’re not very effective.

That’s because, when mice are looking for food, they’re on high alert. Anything that smells dangerous – like human scent on a trap – will be avoided.

(This is also the reason why traps might work once, but never again – mice know to avoid the “dead mouse” smell.)

And, even if they do go for the bait – and trigger the trap – they can often jump out the way before it gets them.

But, even if you do catch a mouse in a trap, that’s not the end of your problems. In fact, things can get pretty gory.

That’s because traps don’t kill mice, they squash them. Sometimes it’s enough to kill the mouse. Often it isn’t.

So it’s quite common to hear trapped mice screeching in agony. Or, even worse, to find injured mice crawling along your kitchen floor, dragging the trap with them.

That’s why we prefer using poison to traps. It’s not just faster and more effective – because poison can go where traps can’t – but it’s a lot more humane and a lot less bloody.

“Very professional and knowledgeable”

Fantastic service, very professional and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!!

“Kept in contact with me throughout”

The technician kept in contact with me through my treatment even sending me texts between each visit to make sure there was no more activity taking place in my property.

“Told me everything that he was doing”

Matt was very helpful and knowledgeable. He knew what he was talking about and told me everything that he was doing and what needed to be done to prevent further problems.

#2: Why hire Pest Exterminators Cambs rather than another pest control company?

The pest control industry has its fair share of cowboys. People who took a one-day course on pest control and are now selling themselves as “experts.”

But, fortunately, there’s an easy way to avoid them – if you know what to look for.

British Pest Control Association (BPCA) Members

The BPCA is a proper regulatory body. Being a member means…

#1: All your technicians have been trained to a high level. (Level 2 pest management.)

#2: You’ve got to keep your customers happy. If you get too many complaints, you get kicked out of the organisation.

#3: You’ve got to work to their health and safety standards.

#4: You are fully insured.

So, if you hire a BPCA pest control company, you know you’re dealing with a company that’s invested in training and proven it works to high standards.

And, if for any reason, you have a complaint, you can report it and the BPCA will investigate on your behalf.
