What to Look for in a Pest Control Company

It’s hot and humid in South Carolina this summer and that usually means that the pests around our homes are extremely happy! They’ve found a nice home inside your residence and have become extremely difficult to control. If you’re tired of dealing with pest control on your own, it’s likely time to call a local company offering pest control services. But before you hire a Greenville or Spartanburg pest control company, you should keep the following tips in mind to avoid getting scammed by some of the less honest companies in the pest control and termite service businesses.

Ensure that the Company is Properly Licensed and Insured
When working with a local pest control company, you’ll want to ensure that it is properly licensed and insured. Ask for proof of licensing and insurance and make sure that the company is licensed in South Carolina. Because of our proximity to North Carolina, some companies may be licensed in North Carolina, but not necessarily in our home state.

Ask Friends and Relatives for References
Another great way to find a pest control recommendation is to ask your family and friends. Chances are your close friends and family will have a few names of pest control companies in the Greenville and Spartanburg areas that they’ve used in the past.

Work with a Company with Plenty of Experience
Another key thing to look for when hiring a pest control company or termite service is how long they’ve been in business. Be suspicious of new companies with little experience that may not be well versed in the latest pest control methods. We’ve been in business since 1957 at Thompson Brothers Exterminating and we have seen quite a few companies come and go in the area over nearly 60 years.

Don’t Pay for Estimates
If a company isn’t willing to offer you a free estimate, it’s likely best to look elsewhere for pest control services. If a company is greedy enough to charge for an estimate, then you can likely expect them to charge higher rates than you may be willing to pay.

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
