This is the third and final part of Every Business needs a Bed Bug Plan. In the first part, we talked about the importance of a risk management plan.

Step 3: Your Pest Control Professional

Of course, the first thing to do is to choose the right provider. This is not really a place to refer to hire a brother-in-law just because that is what the family wants.

Choosing the right provider should start with researching reputations and references. If someone comes in to do a presentation, be sure to ask for references from current customers.

With your new provider, make sure that you understand what they will do, what they won’t do and what they expect to do for you.

You should ask what chemicals they will use, what trainings they will provide and how much they will need you and your staff to do.

Next is setting a budget. The key to this is to make sure that you balance the potential cost of a bed bug infestation and the ongoing costs of maintenance.

The final portion of your mission is to listen and follow instructions. Once you have hired a pest control professional, you need to think of them as the bug gurus. They are the experts. Do yourself a favor and don’t second guess the pros. Follow their instructions to the letter.

This final installment of the business guide to bed bugs is not comprehensive, but should allow any business owner to have a sense of control over their destiny where bed bugs are concerned.

The key to all of this is to remember that bed bugs can be a costly and painful experience. Have a plan and move forward with everything.
