Hiring an exterminator to handle your pest needs does not need to be a trying experience. There are some simple things you can do before you start making the phone calls. Do a little research. Have they been in business for a while or are they a fly-by-night company? Do they have solid reviews and recommendations? Are they local? Local companies often take more pride in servicing their area as the people living in their community are the same people they went to school with, their kids go to school with or they know around town.
Once you have narrowed down your list of exterminators to contact, you can start making calls and requesting quotes. Do your best to compare your quotes apples to apples. Also check for extra perks such as guarantees and warranties. Having an infestation reoccur in a few weeks means it wasn’t done right the first time. Be sure you have some protection against this when choosing your exterminator.

Permanently exterminating roaches can be one of the toughest tasks for an untrained homeowner. Roaches are one of the most resilient creatures on the planet. Some species are capable of remaining active for a month without food and are able to survive on limited resources, such as the glue from the back of postage stamps. Some can even go without air for 45 minutes. The most common roaches in the Tampa area are the American cockroach (often called Palmetto bug) and German cockroach. Both of these cockroaches are mainly nocturnal. in most cases if you see one, there are probably several more lurking in the shadows and it’s best to get the professionals in as soon as possible.
Exterminating ants can be very important to the safety of your family. While most ants provide little danger to humans, fire ants can cause severe pain and are found in our area. Ants also tend to swarm and can raid food supplies. Having wood piles close to the home or trees that over hang roof tops can provide an easy access to ants into your home. Our exterminators can evaluate your home and property for insect entry points and potential entry points.
Being a rat exterminator presents an entirely different set of challenges from insects. Rats and mice gnaw through wood to sharpen their teeth, this is something they have to do. If your home is where they dwell, they will be using it as their gnawing post. In addition to the damage done to your home’s structure, they can also damage the wiring. These two forms of damage can add up to considerable costs if the rodents are not properly exterminated in a timely fashion. Extensive inspections to determine where the rodents are entering the home and where they could enter the home are done before providing a treatment plan and quote.
