My list and answer could go on forever on this subject but I ran into a rather good article from Texas on this very topic and thought I would share it.
Texas has an updated online tool to help people make intellegient choices on who they pick to perform pest control services for their homes, families and businesses. Now if you are in Texas here is the link TexasAgriculture.gov, here are just a few of the remarks mentioned in the article.
Unlicensed pest control applicators might work cheaper but their work can be deadly to families and business employees, officials said Tuesday.
“Unlicensed people may potentially run a higher risk of being unfamiliar with laws and safety precautions and training and practices,”
“Safety and security are important factors when letting someone in your home,”
In Arizona the Office of Pest Management regulates the pest control industry and provides a Consumer link to various and very useful information. They also provide Termite Action Report Forms (TARFs) or a tool to see what termite work was done on a home.
