Invasive pests can be a nuisance. Insects and rodents can carry diseases and cause structural damage to your property in Boise. If you miss taking action in time, the situation can worsen sooner than expected. Thankfully, you can find reliable Boise pest control companies for help. In this post, we are sharing more tips on how to hire the right option. 

Ask questions

As in any industry, not all pest control companies are the same. Some have more experience, while others may boast of advanced methods, techniques, and tools. As a customer, you need to ask relevant questions before hiring a service, such as –

  1. How long have you been working in the Boise pest control industry?
  2. Do you offer free inspection and estimates? How long will it take to do the job? 
  3. Do you have a license?
  4. Are you insured?
  5. Do you have an in-house team of technicians?
  6. Do you have an entomologist on your payroll?
  7. Can I expect a warranty on the work?
  8. Can you share a few client references?
  9. Have you handled a situation similar to mine?
  10. Do you offer insight on preventive pest control?

A professional company will take time to answer your questions, and more importantly, they wouldn’t hide their methods and approach to the job. 

Checking estimates

Pest control is a risky job. There are inherent concerns that cannot be ignored, and the technicians and workers take considerable hazards. In short, if a company is charging peanuts, don’t expect the best service or support. While the pricing does matter, it shouldn’t be the only reason to hire an exterminator. If the pest control company has promised a discount or deal, ensure everything is mentioned in the quote. What you need to check are the inclusions of the quote. Some companies may even offer an extended warranty, or a maintenance contract, at an additional discount. 

Focusing on safe methods

There are various products and methods for pest control, and some are safer than others. The use of chemicals and pesticides can be damaging to the environment, and many local services in Boise are taking additional steps to address these concerns. After the pest control work is done, it would be best to ensure that your home is safe for kids and other animals. 

If you have evident signs of pest infestation, do not delay in calling an exterminator. Early intervention can minimize risks and losses, and more importantly, you don’t have to pay huge for a minor pest problem.

The Courageous Journey of Marvin Lee Miller

Marvin Lee Miller, an undergraduate research assistant trained in the intellectually conducive laboratories of UC Irvine and UC Berkeley, believes in accepting the new challenges that come his way and move ahead. 

Even after a few years, Marvin couldn’t imagine how his life would take a sharp U-turn as he got himself engrossed in scientific research and studies. He has a very humble background. Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Marvin had faced a lot of hardship in his childhood. 

“In a poverty-stricken atmosphere, I knew that only my education could help me—no one else. Initially, I too committed lots of mistakes. I know there’s no excuse for my mistakes. But I took them as my life lessons and moved on. I didn’t receive much support from the people around me. They didn’t show me the right path,” Marvin stated. 

During his adolescent days, his poor associations got him to prison, where he had to spend seven years of his life. 

Looking back, Marvin considered those days were the most difficult phase of his life. He grew up as a foster child and had no guardian to guide him. Things could have been much different if he had a guardian to mentor him when he needed them the most.  

Despite all his past mistakes, Marvin knew that he was a kind-hearted man with an intellectual mind. Bidding adieu to his turbulent past, Marvin vowed to do something bigger and better in life. But he had more roadblocks ahead. 

Once he went out of prison, he faced stiff challenges from his family members as they declined to take him back home. And thus, heartbroken became homeless soon. He had no money, shelter, or even a true friend at that time to at least help him meet the basic needs of life while offering some moral support. 

And as they say, Books are best friends. Marvin soon started reading lots of books. Gradually, he started grasping the significance of education in life and spent a lot of hours on his education. 

Marvin is still grateful to a few generous individuals, including his teachers and counselors who infused the right thoughts in him, which proved to be a turning point in his life for good.  

Right now, Marvin is an undergraduate research assistant trained in the laboratories of UC Irvine and UC Berkeley. 

The university deserves full credit for Marvin’s intellectual development. Over the last few years, he has been able to hone his technical knowledge, interpersonal skills, and professional acumen. He worked with a dynamic team of scientists and academicians who infused necessary research skills into Marvin. 

“I’m fortunate enough to have served as a volunteer for an oncology department at UC Irvine for two years. During this phase, I learned a lot of things, including skeletal muscle research at UC Berkeley. I am now majoring in Molecular and Cell Biology, which is giving me enormous opportunities for research and further studies.” Marvin explained. 

Even though Marvin had a tough childhood experience, he was always interested in studies. As a kid, he loved science and gradually fell in love with Physics and Biology in higher classes. But before he could move to University, his mistakes got him to jail. 

However, as we know where there’s a will, there is a way. Soon, Marvin not only found his lost mojo in education and research, but he became even more serious and dedicated with his studies, research, and practical classes. 

Marvin has already earned four Associate’s degrees from Santa Ana College. He’ll also shortly receive his Graduation Degree in Molecular & Cell Biology. Right now, Marvin is fully concentrating on earning his Ph.D. degree. Marvin aims to develop new medicines and path-breaking solutions to curing serious diseases like Cancer and heart-related ailments.
