Do you have a fear of spiders? Well, I don’t fear the regular household spider, but I do cringe when I see large, hairy tarantulas. But then again, a number of people have this intense fear of spiders, which is actually a type of phobia called arachnophobia. Those who intensely fear spiders purposely avoid outdoor hikes and seasonal activities like Halloween because of the fear that spiders might be present. So, to keep spiders out of your home or business establishment, here are a couple of tried and tested tips on how to find the best spider control Brisbane firm in town.
Take Time to do Research
People vary in their tolerance for pests like spiders which periodically (or habitually) invade our homes and businesses and cause some level of discomfort. Ultimately, deciding on whether you require professional pest control service all boils down to your definition of what a “pest” means, and your tolerance for pest encounters.
Although you may think that a do-it-yourself or DIY approach is best to spider control Brisbane, the truth is that there are situations where job is best left in the hands of professional pest control personnel.
And FYI, the pest control industry in Australia has actually grown by 2.6% from 2014 to 2019. This clearly shows that there’s a growing need to keep everyone safe and secure from the creepy crawlers of the outback.
When your home or business establishment is infested with pests like spider, it would be very tempting to simply do a Google search, type in “spider control Brisbane” and book the first company that pops up in the search results page.
However, if you do this, then you could be making a very huge mistake. Why? Just because a pest control company is the first one you find in the search results page of Google, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the best one available.
So, before you quickly book a contract with a spider control Brisbane service, take a moment to do some research. This can save you a world of trouble in the future, both financially and emotionally. Not to mention, it may also spare your bank account.
Ask for Referrals From Friends, Family and Co-Workers
I’m sure’ you’re not the only one in your group, or community, who’s ever had a major pest issue. So, to find the best spider control Brisbane company ask for referrals from friends, family members, relatives co-workers or business associates to find out which companies they’ve contacted and worked with before.
By using your network to find the best spider control Brisbane service, you can quickly figure out which companies are really good, and which ones you need to avoid. And who know, you may even get a big discount for being a referral?
Evaluate the Company’s Experience
After collecting the referrals from friends, relatives, family members, co-workers or business associates for their recommended spider control Brisbane service, the next best thing to do is to evaluate how many years of experience they have, and if their personnel are well-trained (and if they use the latest tools or equipment).
While I am not saying that a brand-new pest control firm will not be good, when it comes to very serious issues, you may want someone who has a proven track record for handling pests like termites, ants, cockroaches and spiders effectively.
In general, a spider control Brisbane service that has been in business for quite a number of years already, will offer a higher quality of service. However, this should not be the sole thing that you’ll be checking out with regards to experience.
Apart from having many years of operation, the pest control service that you’re looking at should also have extensive experience in the services you require. You can choose a company that has been around 20 years already. But, if they have only a few months of actual experience in your pest issue, then that would probably be no good.
License, Bonded & Insured
Another crucial thing to check out when determining the quality of a spider control Brisbane is that you should find out if the company is licensed, bonded and insured. If the firm is not licensed, then they may not be using the right tools, techniques and equipment to exterminate pests.
Considering that pest extermination chemicals are quite heavy (and poisonous too), this can pose a very serious problem to your family, and even your pets. So, to find out if the spider control Brisbane company is licensed, bonded and insured, contact the state government’s Department of Health to double check if the company is truthful about having a valid license.
Since pest control involves the use of hazardous chemicals in various parts of your property, should anything go wrong, then you and your family certainly want to be protected. For your sake, and of everyone else, a truly professional pest control company should be bonded and insured in addition to being licensed.
Get Free Quotes
To get a much better feel of whether or not a spider control Brisbane service is overcharging you, get at least two to three quotes. Any reputable and licensed business will be more than happy to offer these to you free of charge, with no obligations.
But, if the company tries to charge you for the quote, then this could mean that they’re pushy about you contracting their services before they’re even willing to give you one. Any company that acts in this fashion is perhaps only after your money, and won’t probably be good to work with.
Work Guarantees are Also a Plus
Regardless of whether the pest control service is in operation for 20 years, or 20 weeks only, the art of pest control may not always be initially successful. In that case, you will want to be sure that you won’t get swindled of your hard-earned money.
So, before signing a contract with the spider control Brisbane service, see if the firm offers guarantees of their work. And, if they do provides guarantees, then what are their terms?
Make sure you that you’re really clear on the fine print. Why? Because you don’t want the service provider to suddenly charge you for “additional” services that you didn’t even see on the contract agreement.
