During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, local economies are suffering.

We are beginning to realize that, though there are many benefits to our globalized world, we still need local small businesses in order to have a vibrant economy.

S&S Termite and Pest Control is proud to be an Auburn-Opelika based company and glad to serve the community for all pest control needs.

Since 2002 S&S has been offering services including termite control, bed bugs, mosquitos, rodent control, and encapsulations to East Alabama and West Georgia.

Why Is It Better to Have a Locally Owned Exterminator?

When choosing a pest control provider you may be tempted to choose a big name brand that you’ve seen advertised on television or elsewhere. However, there are several reasons why it is better to support locally owned pest control companies.

First, when you hire a pest company that is locally owned, you are often hiring someone who has years, if not decades, of experience in the local area.

For example, the insects that tend to be a nuisance in Alabama or the southeast in general may not be the same insects in Vermont and the Northeast. A local exterminator will know this.

You need a pest control company that knows the local climate and ecology well.

S&S Pest Control knows that because of Alabama and Georgia’s temperate climate and high humidity, termites are a particularly acute problem for our residents. S&S knows from experience how to handle the annoying and harmful mosquitos that plague our land each summer.

Secondly, a locally owned pest control company knows the history of the area that he or she is servicing.

Not every pest control job is going to require the same type or degree of treatment. A pest control company that is not localized may try to fix every pest control problem using the same method. This will not get the job done.

Because a local pest control company has the knowledge that a local has, he or she will be able to tailor the solution to the problem based on what each situation needs.  

For example, if the exterminator knows that the house he or she is working on took a long time to sell because it had past termite damage, then they will know to pay careful attention to prevent and control the termite population.

Lastly, it’s best to hire a local pest control company not just because they know the local area, but primarily because they know the local residents.

These are people that they work with, live beside, go to church with, and go to “the big game with.”

Local pest control professionals care about their clients, because they are their neighbors and friends. They have a vested interest in your wellbeing.

S&S Termite and Pest Control will treat you with kindness and fairness as their neighbors. Pricing estimates and quality of service are not based on some corporate quota or mandate. They are based on your needs and unflinching standards of excellence.
