Upon discovering you have an infestation of bed bugs, rats, flies or something equally unpleasant, you’re likely to call the first company that comes up in Google. Acting fast is indeed the correct response but why are you better off choosing a local pest controller? Which is why we have a dedicated team of pest control experts in Chelmsford.
They can get to you faster
When you suspect you have a pest control problem, it’s important to get it dealt with as quickly as possible. A single pair of mice can produce as many as 2,000 offspring a year, rats are estimated to be responsible for 25% of all electrical fires and pigeons carry more harmful diseases to humans than rodents do.
So as well as getting out of hand very quickly, pest infestations can be outright dangerous. If you live in Chelmsford for example, you don’t want to have to wait for hours or even days for someone to get to you to diagnose the problem. It can also cause delays if you need ongoing treatment.
Here at Prokill, we have a dedicated team of experts local to Chelmsford who are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
They know common problems in the area
Sometimes you may be aware of a pest issue but you’re not quite sure what it is. Say you hear scurrying in the loft for example. This could be rats, mice, a trapped bird or squirrels running on the roof.
Local experts know what’s going on in the area and if there has been an outbreak of any particular pests. This enables them to diagnose and treat the problem quickly and effectively, before it becomes a more serious problem.
It’s more cost effective
Regardless of the service you’re using, if you choose a company that’s based miles away, this is going to reflect in the price. It’s understandable that any business needs to cover basic costs so if a pest controller has to drive hours to get to you, it’s going to cost them more in petrol and labour.
By choosing a local company however, they’re just around the corner which means lower travel costs and less time on the job and these savings can be passed on to you.
A more personalised service
If someone is based a fair distance away from you, they can’t get to you very easily. When you choose a local company however, someone is always just around the corner. This means that if you need an emergency appointment, we’re more likely to be able to fit you in around other appointments. Additionally, if you phone us with a query and one of our experts is free, we can pop around to deal with the problem rather than trying to diagnose it over the telephone.
