Selecting a Termite Treatment
Do not panic! In most cases, significant
termite damage will not occur in a short period of time. But do
not delay your decision indefinitely; damage has already started
and termites will continue to cause damage.
Verify that the firm you select is a member
of a pest management association such as Certified Pest Control
Operators Association C.P.C.O. 770-682-5134 or Georgia Pest Control
Association G.P.C.A. 770-417-1881.
Compare written proposals. Seek value, avoid making decisions based
solely on price. For example, a firm which does a careful survey,
and can (will) show you the pest, location and extent of damage
before they quote a price is more apt to do an effective job than
another. Make sure they are licensed by the
Georgia Department of Agriculture.
Last and maybe most importantly make sure the Pest Control Company
you chose has currant insurance. Many people have taken a risk on
a Pest Professional just because of price to find out when damage
was found there was no insurance to pay for it and the person performing
the work could not be found.
