Yes, monthly service reports help prevent and quickly eliminate pest infestations before they become an issue.
But did you know service reports can help you anticipate and allocate the appropriate resources before a new pest season begins?
What Does My Service Report Include?
A standard monthly service report should include;
- Details on pesticide usage
- Technician notes on problem areas that need to be addressed
- Treatment details
More in-depth service reports like the ones we provide our commercial clients with may include pictures from the service location.
Essentially service reports are a communication tool that allows us to keep you informed at every step in the treatment plan—from setting clear expectations about how often we’ll service your location to providing corrective actions to take.
The very first step in getting the most out of your treatment plan is by following the direction of your pest control technician.
Our technicians are highly trained, certified professionals who specialize in commercial pest control. If they note down an issue with your warehouse doors or a trash chute, it’s for a good reason.
It’s also an excellent opportunity to get your maintenance team working with your pest management program for the best results.
If you’re ever unsure about a note in your service report, we send the same technician to your location every month, so you can always ask for clarification or give us a call.
How Can My Service Report Save Me Money In The Long Term?
Here is a little secret most pest control providers know without knowing they know it. Your service report can save you money on pest control.
At the beginning of each budget year, go back through your old service reports and note down specific months you paid to treat pests like wasps, rodents, and ants.
For seasonal pests, you’ll begin to see a pattern where certain months you spent more to treat the same pests almost every year.
Generally, we charge a regular monthly fee that you pay to have your buildings monitored and a discounted rate to treat for pests if we find any.
Early detection and monitoring help keep those treatment prices low, but knowing how much you spend per year on pest control can help you set aside the right amount for your budget before the year begins.
This also gives you the opportunity to schedule proactive inspections to nip problems in the bud before they usually begin. And it will give you a better idea of where the problem areas in your buildings are.
What Does Success Look Like?
Ideally, an effective pest control program will work for you–hand in hand with employee education and your maintenance program to provide end-to-end support.
A good partner will have a strong grasp on effective control technologies and application methods and they will be able to provide practical advice as needed.
But the very best results come when you are in control of your budget and understand why tools like your service report matter. We want to see;
- Increased revenue
- Decreased operational expenses
- And reduced infestations
Just as much as you do. So work with us.
