What are a professional exterminator’s duties?
The duties and knowledge of a pest control professional are often unknown to the general public. An “exterminator” is a specialist in pest management. This means that he or she must have a broad knowledge of the environment and nature in order to recognize the different types of pests, identify them, find out where they are located and know how to get rid of them using the most effective product. An pest control technician must also have good communication skills to listen to your problems, explain the steps to be taken, the plan of action to be implemented and communicate a set of tips to reduce the risk of a new infestation in the future.
But what are the duties of a professional exterminator and how do they work? Here are some answers from our experts.
Investigation and analysis duties
Exterminators are professionals who work in the field of pest management. Their expertise enables them to understand applicable methods of extermination, treatments and existing standards and they have a vast knowledge of parasites.
Reliable exterminators must know the different species, their way of life and their mode of reproduction to ensure the quality of their procedures. They must understand how and why an infestation has emerged so they can treat it and prevent recurrence. With the information provided by the client, as well as an analysis of the environment in which the pests are growing, they will find a logical solution to their presence.
Offering solutions adapted to each infestation
Beyond their analytical work, pest management specialists must be able to exterminate vermin. However, distributing a product to the four corners of a home is not enough to achieve this. Essentially, an exterminator’s duty is to offer customers the most appropriate solution to overcome their infestation. For this, they must take many factors into account such as the type of infestation, the species of pests or the contaminated space.
These specialists also have the role of ensuring the sustainability of the situation, especially by preventing future infestations with a suitable caulking solution.
An exterminator knows how to inform and advise his clients
An effective pest management solution, beyond extermination itself, requires customer service adapted to each situation. Also, an exterminator must ensure good communication with his customers to better understand the expectations and anticipate the needs required to establish a pest management plan.
You can benefit from clear and relevant information regarding the duration of the infestation or possible changes within a dwelling that will facilitate the analysis. This will also allow the technician to inform his client more precisely about risks related to the presence of vermin at home and the preferred extermination solutions.
An exterminator has a much bigger role than “killing”
The role of a professional exterminator goes well beyond the simple extermination of parasites. They must also offer personalized customer service and share their extensive knowledge of pests in order to prevent the re-emergence of vermin.
