142 Orange County Pest Control Services

Unwanted guests are never fun, especially when you can’t ask them to leave. Luckily, pest control companies have no problem kicking them out. Whether there’s a rodent in your basement or insects in the attic, call your local exterminator to take care of them — do not try to wrangle them out yourself! Not sure which type of home pest control service in Orange County can tackle your issue? Check out the following advice to help hire the best pro:

How do exterminators and pest control companies in Orange County differ?

Both pest exterminator and control companies in Orange County have a common goal of eliminating bothersome pests from your home, but the methods which they use to do so are different. Commonly, exterminators use more aggressive methods, sometimes including chemicals, for more instant gratification. You want those ants or cockroaches dead and gone today? An exterminator in Orange County can likely do that. Chances are you’ll have to be out of the house for a few hours, or days, depending on how widespread the issue is.

With most pest control services, you commonly get a more long-term solution to your problem. They usually will do a thorough pest inspection to investigate the source of the issue and identify the best way to eradicate the pest(s) permanently, if possible. Often this requires multiple return visits to make sure the pest(s) is responding to their suggested treatment, and adjusting their course of action if needed. While you might not see instant gratification like you could with an exterminator, a pest control company is typically dedicated to stopping the problem at the root so it doesn’t reappear down the road. However, there is no guarantee that your pesky guests won’t come back, so make sure with any pest management or extermination professional you hire that you know exactly what’s in the contract, like the number of treatments and what the actual guaranteed end result is.

Questions to ask a prospective pest control service in Orange County:

  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured? (Check liability insurance and workman's compensation.)
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • How long have you been in the pest control business?
  • What do your services include?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can this job get done?
  • Will we need to be out of the house? If so, how long?
  • What happens if the pest(s) comes back?
