How To Find A Quality Pest Management Professional

  • Ask your neighbors, friends and family. They will be honest with you about a company they have hired to service their home or business.
  • Ask if the company is licensed and insured. Make sure that all technicians are state certified.
  • Does the company participate in continuing education? This shows their commitment to the industry by updating themselves with the latest knowledge available.
  • Does the representative appear professional and is the vehicle clean and well-equipped?
  • Is the company representative able to answer your questions? If not, does he/she offer to find the answer for you?
  • How long have they been in the Pest Management industry? How long has the technician been in the industry?
  • Does the company have any type of policy about drug and criminal background checks on their employees?
  • Will the technician be available for questions before, during and/or after the application?
  • Don’t let the lowest price be your only deciding factor in choosing a pest management company. It could truly cost you thousands later.
  • Contact the Oregon Department of Agriculture to find out if the company is licensed and if there have been any application violations. 503-986-4635.
  • Contact the Oregon Department of Justice/Consumer Hotline to inquire if the company has had any complaints with them. Their phone number is 1-877-877-9392.
