Rodents are common in South Florida, but when rodent activity is noticeable in or near your business, it is most likely that professional commercial rodent control services are needed to address the problem before your business begins to suffer. Mice and rats can cause substantial damage and create health risks for employees and customers. Because these pests can multiply so rapidly in the South Florida climate, it’s essential that you act quickly but deliberately to protect your business.
What to Consider When Choosing a Commercial Rodent Control Service
When a business first realizes it may have a rodent problem, it may rush to find the first commercial rodent control service available. However, a little deliberation before choosing a service helps ensure you address the issue thoroughly, safely, and efficiently. Look for the following attributes in the rodent control service you work with to keep your business pest-free.
Are the Technicians’ Licenses Up-to-Date?
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services licenses pest control technicians working in the state and also requires that they carry insurance coverage. Pest control services must employ Florida-certified technicians who are licensed in the specific services offered by the company, such as:
- General pest and rodent control for households and businesses
- Lawn and ornamental pest control
- Control of termites and other wood-destroying organisms
Check the public database of the Florida Bureau of Licensing and Enforcement to determine whether a commercial rodent control service is licensed or certified.
Is the Company Experienced in Solving the Type of Infestation You’re Dealing With?
In addition to looking for a pest control service with years of experience in South Florida, make sure the technicians employed by the company are knowledgeable about the specific type of rodent infestation you’re dealing with.
Some rodent control operations rely on removal techniques that use harsh chemicals and require special handling. Nozzle Nolen prefers natural pesticides as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy that forms a barrier around your business. We believe that the best form of pest control is pest prevention.
Does the Commercial Rodent Control Provider Have a Good Reputation?
Rather than relying on advertising, ask associates and other business owners if they have experience with the rodent control service you’re considering.
In the absence of a personal or professional recommendation, check whether the company is accredited with a national or regional association, such as:
Choose a Commercial Rodent Control Service With Free Estimates
It’s important to get a clear and competitive quote in the commercial rodent service provider’s written estimate but also look for a pest control company that performs free inspections, offers complete satisfaction guarantees, and will return free of charge if the rodents come back. At Nozzle Nolen, we take pride in our work and stand by it. If the pests return, so do we. That is the Nozzle Nolen guarantee.
The Commercial Rodent Control Service Should Be Clear From the Start
The pest control technicians should provide clear descriptions of the rodent infestation and the process of eliminating it. Voice your concerns and make sure all of your questions are answered thoroughly. Ensure the technicians clearly explains all the options available to you regarding the type of treatment to be applied and the products they will use.
Are the Services the Company Offers Safe and Environmentally Friendly?
It is more important than ever for pest control providers to use safe and environmentally friendly pest control solutions. Nozzle Nolen’s Green Shield Certified Service is guaranteed and relies on a prevention-based approach that minimizes the use of pesticides.
