It used to be that you needed two different companies to manage your lawn care and your pest control. However, many lawn care companies have made the move into the pest control arena, bundling the two services together.
While this is convenient for consumers, it does bring up that age-old question: how do you choose the best company from the available options?
Here’s a list of four questions to consider when you’re looking for a lawn care company to handle your pest control:
What pests are managed with this bundle?
Many companies include “pest control” as part of their bundle, but they may only deal with one or two types of pests. Be sure you know what kinds of pests the company is going to treat for and that said treatment fits your needs for your yard. If they’re only doing fleas and ticks but you’ve got a mosquito problem, it’s better to look elsewhere.
Is the pest control used child and pet-friendly?
If you have kids or pets, this is a very important question to ask. Although many companies are moving to more sustainable and less dangerous insecticides, some are still using chemicals that can be potentially harmful to your family. Make sure you know ahead of time what kind of product your pest control company is using, so you can be worry-free when they’re taking care of your yard.
What do the reviews say?
This seems obvious, but researching a company and checking out their reviews on Google, Facebook, Yelp, and other platforms gives you a good idea of how the company operates and how they handle it when problems arise. An hour of research could save you loads of money and many potential headaches.
What are the different pricing options?
Lastly, take a look at the different pricing options that each lawn care company offers and compare them all. Do they offer different tiers? What do you get for each one? Is there a price guarantee or a refund option if you’re not happy with your service? Between this information and the reviews, you can feel secure that you’re getting the best deal possible.
Choosing a lawn care company that also handles pest control can be overwhelming. But just keep these questions in mind, and you’ll find someone who’ll work great for you and your yard. Don’t forget to consider Lawn Guard for your lawn care and pest control needs!
