After careful consideration, you have come to the conclusion that you have a bee hive or swarm on your property. The telltale signs of an influx of buzzing bees have made it clear that you require some professional help to rid your property of a honey bee infestation.
Hiring any kind of service provider can be stressful! How do you know which company to choose? Is the service going to match the price tag? Will they truly get rid of your honey bee problem? All of these questions are valid, because there are some bee removal companies out there who don’t value honesty and integrity.
Before hiring any bee removal company, consider the following red flags that could indicate that you should not hire them to perform your San Diego bee removal service.
3 Red Flags When Hiring a Bee Removal Company
Poor Customer Service
Service oriented companies rely on customer satisfaction and referrals for their businesses to be successful. In addition to being highly skilled at honey bee removal, the company you hire should also provide impeccable customer service. You should always feel that your questions are answered honestly and that the company delivers on what they have promised. You should feel that you are being treated with respect, from your initial phone call to your final payment.
If you are not receiving calls back or if you feel that the staff is rude or dismissive, imagine how they will treat you when they already have your business. First impressions are important when you work in the service industry. Always choose a live bee removal company that provides you with top of the line customer service right from the start.
Lack of Transparent Pricing
No one likes to be surprised by a huge bill after the fact. A legitimate and reputable company will be sure to clearly communicate their pricing right from the start. They will be honest about potential changes or additional charges that you may incur. For example, bee removal is sometimes not a straightforward endeavor. There is always the chance that there is more extensive damage than initially thought or that the infestation is larger than meets the eye.
A professional company will clearly communicate and provide you with information explaining the costs of additional services right from the start. They should always explain the situation to you and make sure that you understand any additional charges before going forward with extra services.
With the internet right at your fingertips, you can find a wealth of information about the companies you might do business with. Never hire a bee removal company without first reading reviews and checking references. Check out independent sites such as Yelp, Next Door or Angie’s List so you can get more information about the experiences of others in your community. Check to see if the company is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. If you do not find reviews for a company online, consider going with another company that does have reviews or with a referral from a trusted friend or family member.
