Lately I’ve been getting calls from new customers looking for treatment options or cockroach services in Broken Arrow. What I’ve heard through numerous conversations during these calls is the pest control company they have been using doesn’t do this or do that. Of course all pest control companies do things there own way but all this got me thinking why?
I received a call on Tuesday from a lady in Broken Arrow who had another company servicing her home for German cockroaches. She wasn’t happy with the services they were providing and stated they treated her home at least 5 times now and she really hasn’t seen any progress. I decided to take this opportunity and asked her a few questions.
- Did the company have her clear out the cabinets in the kitchen?
- Did they bait the cabinets every service?
- Are they rotating products, pesticides, using IGR’s ” Insect Growth Regulators” ?
- How often was the follow-up services being performed?
- How tidy is home kept?
I was a little shocked with her answer’s. First, they never had her clear out the cabinets so a flush service could be performed. Second, they baited the cabinets only the first time they were out and never again. Third, she didn’t know about pesticide rotation to keep the cockroaches from gaining any pesticide resistance. I was also shocked that they did not discuss the need for keeping food, pop and other things cockroaches love cleaned up. She never answered regarding the service schedule and stated they just call the day of service without her knowing and then show up. Basically she doesn’t have them giving her a set treatment schedule.
The moral of the story: The service you pay for is only as good as the pest control person performing the treatment.
Sure part of the solution in dealing with cockroaches is making sure they don’t have the needed food, water they forage looking for. keeping the home or business tidy, clean and free of trash, food, soda cans and bottles sure does help but these are all things anybody dealing with these pests should be doing. Quite frankly, the pest control operator should be going over all these things with the customer so everybody has a good idea of how they can help reduce the cockroach problem.
So why choose EnviroTech? First, we absolutely do a flush service on any German Cockroach Treatment. It is required and will help move the process along and save you money in time. Second, we bait every time. Not just the first or the second service but every time. Third, we go over our services and expectations in detail.
