Local vs. National Pest Control Companies: Why Working with a Local Pest Control Company is Best

November 22nd, 2016

Are you wondering about what to do in the not-so-impossible case of a pest infestation on your property? It is a fact that even while observing all precautions, some pests still manage to invade your home and wreak havoc on your garden and property. While you can deal with some cases by observing simple tips, for most pest infestations, you need the help of a professional pest control company to take care of the problem.

When it comes to hiring a professional pest control company, should you hire a local pest control company or a national franchise for the job?

If you are stuck like many others about whether to choose a local company or go for a national firm for the pest control in your home or office setting, then it is a matter of weighing the pros and cons of the matter.

Do you have the budget to bear the expenses? Do you need specialists with experience in pest control which are more specific to your state? There are a number of questions you need to ask yourself before you decide which one is best for you.

Reasons Why Local Pest Control Companies Are the Ideal Option

Ideal Choice for Routine Treatments

If you want to have routine maintenance and control treatments on your property, it is ideal to hire a local expert for the job. Hiring a national company could mean that you will have to wait for your turn and bear the burden of expensive overhead costs for routine procedures. Since the local company can offer you expert services at a suitable time and within your budget, it makes complete sense to choose local over a national pest control company.

Affordable Pest Control Options

A national company may charge you more for the same services. It is advisable though to go for a national pest control company if your local firm doesn’t have the required sophisticated equipment needed for the treatment.

But since most local firms now offer complete treatment and control procedures with state of the art updated equipment, there is no need to spend more when you can get the similar quality of service at an affordable option.

Experienced in Dealing with Seasonal Infestations Common to Your Neighborhood

A local company will be well aware of all the seasonal pest infestations. Alford Wildlife and Pest Management is very familiar with the SWFL trends and can assist proactively to prevent your home from being bombarded with our seasonal visitors (and we don’t mean snowbirds).

Offer Treatment Schedules to Your Needs

Compared to national pest control companies, local firms offer treatment schedules more suited to your individual needs and also offer more value to customers. Since national firms are governed by treatment schedules dictated as a part of their national marketing campaign, they cannot offer you a customized pest treatment schedule as per your needs. Alford Wildlife and Pest Management is locally owned and services all of Southwest Florida. To learn more about us and our local pest control services, contact us today.
