As the weather warms up, it seems like everyone wants to get outside and get active. So does everything. This is the time of year when pests get pesky.
If you want to do something about it, be careful who you choose. Some “pest control” experts are really just scammers.
“Make sure you’re dealing with an established business that’s licensed,” said Jeannette Kopko with the Dallas Better Business Bureau.
You really don’t want to hire somebody who’s just going around door-to-door, looking for customers. Definitely be wary of a ‘free inspection.’
“Then they claim you have an infestation you might not really have,” said Kopko.
It starts of as something where you think it’s free, but it ends up costing you a lot of money in the long run.
“It’s important to get more than one bid, too, because pest control can be expensive,” said Kopko.
