United Pest Control
Pest Control Technician
Go on pest control service calls and do full inspections of the property including the crawlspace, garage, exterior of the home and at times the attic. I then reported what my findings were to the homeowner and then explained causes of the problem(s) and the solutions and how the solutions work. I walked the homeowner through what I was doing and why I was doing it. I then collected payment and reported back to my company’s office. Some of the inspections that I was responsible for were: Termite inspections on slabs and crawlspaces, mold and fungus inspections in crawlspaces, powder post beetle inspections in crawlspaces. I also did mold and fungus sub-floor sprays when necessary in crawlspaces.
