Make sure the pest control company has a license issued by the FL Dept of Agriculture & Consumer Services. 2. Request a written contract for termite control services. Under state law, the pest control company must provide the contract in writing. 3. Make sure employees actually applying the pesticide have the required photo-identification card. 4. Be aware that the terms "limited" guarantee or warranty mean only that the pest control company promises to provide additional treatment if termite infestation occurs during a specified period after treatment.
