Finding the Right Local Pest Exterminators

In the world of GTA pest control, it can be tough to find trustworthy local pest exterminators. That’s why we’ve made this handy guide for selecting the right pest control exterminator, so you can make an informed decision.

Do They Use Integrated Pest Management?

The best way to tell the difference between an expert pest control exterminator and an amateur is if they offer integrated pest management services. Integrated pest management, or organic IPM, refers to holistic pest control strategies that seek to address the root causes of pest infestations, instead of just treating the symptoms with pesticides.

IPM can yield comprehensive, long-term results with minimal use of unsafe chemicals, and as such, all of Terminix Canada’s pest exterminators are trained to create organic IPM solutions.

Are they Government-Licensed Pest Exterminators?

In Ontario, all local pest exterminators must be certified and licensed by the Ontario Pesticide Training and Certification Centre to ensure that they can operate dangerous chemicals safely.

At Terminix Canada, all of our pest control exterminators are fully licensed, certified, and held to the highest professional standards possible. In recognition of our stringent policy of only retaining the best pest control exterminators possible, we were awarded the 2016 Consumer Choice Award for the Central GTA pest control industry.

Are They a Member of Any Professional Pest Exterminator Associations?

Being part of a number of professional associations is a hallmark of any reputable business, and the same goes for the GTA pest control industry. Professional associations have stringent requirements and guidelines for membership to ensure both consumers can have peace of mind, and that the industry as a whole can be uplifted in their eyes.

Terminix Canada is a member of several associations for local pest exterminators, including the National Pest Management Association, Canadian Pest Management Association, and the Structural Pest Management Association of Ontario.
