A number of well-known pest control franchises have come under fire in recent years for business practices that have huge public health risk potential. These practices include improper application of pesticides and poor follow-up. We at DQ Pest Control frown on the unethical practices of some Queens exterminators and think you should be aware of them.
Improperly applying pesticides or administering services can not only result in an ineffective treatment of the problem, but can pose a risk to people and animals inhabiting the treated structure. This can occur either through inadvertent poisoning or recurrence of the infestation, revealed in a subsequent New York termite inspection. Examples of improper application include, but are not limited to: under- or over-application of pesticides; ineffectual application; improper or infrequent bait station monitoring and other application and service issues.
If you suspect an exterminator has participated in poor or unsafe practices, contact the business to communicate your concerns. If you receive no satisfaction from the business, take your concerns to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Better Business Bureau in New York. Termite inspection and eradication violations are too important to go unreported, because the repercussions of shoddy service are so dire. It is for this reason that businesses providing these services must be held to a high ethical standard.
Rest assured, DQ Pest Control's skilled Queens exterminators will follow every vital step in the elimination and prevention of termites in your home or business.
