How to choose the right exterminator?
May 3rd, 2021
When you call in a pest or animal control team, you want the job done right the first time. But how do you choose the right exterminator for the job? In this post, Ottawa’s nature control specialists at BW Nature Control share some advice on what to look for when you’re choosing an exterminator to help you get rid of the uninvited pests and critters in your home.
Not all nature control companies use human methods when removing animals from your property. Not all exterminators will offer rehabilitation and isolation services, for example.
When you are choosing a company to help you get rid of animals which are causing a nuisance on your property, be sure to ask about how the animals will be trapped and removed, and if they will be relocated to a suitable natural habitat.
BW Nature Control always aims to protect each species that we’re dealing with.
We adapt our tactics for each situation and are equipped to conduct rehabilitation of injured urban wildlife, exclusion, isolation and more. We are able to exterminate in cases where it is deemed necessary for the safety of homeowners and/or the animal. Our extensive fieldwork, experience and in-depth knowledge of wild animals equip us with the know-how to choose the right approach.
Experience with local species
When you are choosing the right nature control company for the job, be sure to confirm that they have the proper equipment, knowledge and experience to deal with the type of pest you want removed.
The team at BW Nature Control have extensive knowledge and experience in handling different types of species in Gatineau and Ottawa. Our insect and animal removal solutions are adapted to each situation. Some of the most common types of unwanted pests we deal with are:

Health and Safety of Homeowners
Standards can vary from company to company in regards to how safe the pest control products and methods are for the homeowners, their families, and their pets. When researching different options, always ask about the health and safety considerations that the company takes when removing and preventing pest infestations. Always ask about whether or not their products have been certified and approved by Health Canada.
BW Nature Control prides itself on only employing methods that ensure the health and safety of our clients and their domestic animals on the property, as well.

Not all exterminator and pest control companies offer services for residential and commercial needs. When researching a pest control company, make sure that they offer extermination services for your type of property:
Single family homes, semi-detached, apartments, condominiums, cottages
Restaurants, hotels, daycares, schools, offices
