Selecting a Provider
“Who is the Right Service Company or Provider?”
This is most definitely a puzzling question for those searching for a legitimate professional service provider of any industry.
First of all, a Pest Control Service Company is different from a Wildlife Control Service Company. A pest control service company utilizes regulated contaminates and poisons to resolve an insect or arthropod issue such as roaches, ants, spiders, etc. A wildlife control service provider utilizes mechanical methods to resolve a wildlife related issue or problem such as moles, gophers, coyotes, beaver, squirrels, bats and even honey bees … and a wildlife control service company is completely “green” in relation to the latest environmental movement.
There are those companies in the wildlife industry, that are strictly “exclusionist” when it comes to wildlife, and then there are those like the Murray Wildlife Solutions® Limited Liability Company … who are dedicated to resolving human and animal conflicts for their clientele all over the State of Oklahoma. It has been said before, and it will be said again … exclusion by itself limits for a short time the wildlife’s ability to gain entry into your structures, where as a proper removal of the nuisance species is the more professional way to resolve the issue with damaging wildlife. Murray Wildlife Solutions® Limited Liability Company will then exclude the structure by repair or closure, to ensure that the possible “future” species cannot gain entrance after the initial wildlife issue is resolved.
Following is a statement taken from an improper service provider in Oklahoma:
“If we can exclude an animal from one property, and cause it to move next door … then that will turn into another exclusion job for our company. It’s a way to ensure we stay busy, and in business.”
~ Company name withheld.
Following is a statement taken from a proper service provider in another state:
“I got a call from a lady yesterday who had called my competition first. The other company told her they would remove the raccoons in her attic by using chloroform to knock the raccoons out. I had a hard time
believing anyone would even dream this up to tell a customer….. so I scheduled the client, and then
called the other company to see what they were telling people. It was sickening the way they tried to reel
me in with scare tactics, and lies. I never let on that I wasn’t a client, but It would make a good show
wouldn’t it? Something along the lines of a mystery shopper, who writes reviews about the experience. In
the review, the name and phone number of that company should be included.”
~ Mike Flick – Owner of Anytime Animal Control.
**These types of scare tactics are being used more and more by all service providers everyday, especially in this slumped economy. Don’t allow yourself to get taken by a service provider.
