Citizens of the DFW Metroplex have no lack of questions. But are they asking the right questions? Those who ask the most questions on the initial call, are calling all of the companies in the area that offer bed bug treatment. I think it would be very helpful to provide you a list of the right questions to ask these bed bug treatment providers, along with our answers to these same questions. These are questions that a citizen, inexperienced with bed bugs, would not think to ask. The answers to these questions will allow for an apples to apples comparison between providers.
Why would a person go down the list of bed bug providers and ask them the same questions? Or are they only asking one? Ding! Ding! Ding! What they really want to know is how much the bed bug treatment is. They want to see who has the lowest price. They may be on a very tight budget and may even have to sacrifice other things to make the treatment happen. Or they could be a person who refuses to pay more than they have to for the “same thing” they could get somewhere cheaper.
Both of these example citizen scenarios are admirable and commendable. After all at least they are doing the right thing by seeking out a professional company to exterminate the bed bugs instead of wasting time and money on do-it-yourself treatments that just don’t work.
Let’s say that you make your list of bed bug treatment providers AND you were able to obtain pricing from each of them. Would you only consider price? OR would you also consider what you will be receiving for that sum? When you compare the different ways that pest control companies kill bed bugs, there is a staggering difference between them. You could be comparing apples to pineapples if you are not asking the right questions.
