Of course, about something that concerns this type of emergency and urgent matters, we want to trust people who can really do the job. Just like being operated on by a registered doctor and surgeon, or being represented in a court by a certified lawyer. We want to be able to be comfortable enough to let someone enter our house and do the right thing. 


An exterminator’s job is to get rid of pests including beetles, bed bugs, ants, cockroaches, and other insects in residential and commercial settings, both indoors and out. Most exterminators are licensed or accredited by the state in which they work in order to successfully control or eliminate bugs utilizing both chemical and organic treatments. 


This includes, but is not limited to, the following responsibilities:

On a regular basis, professional exterminators often do the following tasks:

  1. In a timely and customer-friendly manner, respond to work requests for pest control services.
  2. Examine and appraise various structures and their surroundings for evidence of pests and/or infestation.
  3. Measure the areas of the premises that need to be treated and inform clients about the treatment and pest eradication expenses.
  • Use a variety of pest control and removal strategies, such as baits, traps, and insecticides, as needed.
  1. Create detailed pest management strategies and choose the most appropriate remedy for optimal pest control.


What qualifies one to become an exterminator?

  • Most firms prefer applicants who have earned a high school diploma or a GED.
  • Exterminators frequently begin their careers as technicians, with prior technical skills and on-the-job training from their companies.
  • Fumigation, rodent control, bed bug and termite control are some of the specializations that can be achieved.
  • All exterminators are required to finish a three-month general training course in pesticide use and safety protocols.
  • Every pest control worker must also be licensed; the standards differ by state, but they all include passing an exam.
  • Standing or crouching for hours in tough conditions requires a lot of physical energy.
