Tips to Find Good Rodent Control in Tampa

rat and rodent control

Many people choose to hire pest control companies to control the outbreak of pests in the homes and commercial properties. Generally, pest control services can be classified into two categories, namely termite control, and general pest control, which includes rodent control. General pest control services mainly focus on controlling different pests, including rats and mice, and  the following techniques are based on the behavior and biology of each pest.

If you are struggling with pest issues and can’t deal with them on your own, then this is the right time when you should seek the assistance of a good rodent control company. But how to be sure that the company you have chosen will perform the job properly? Before selecting a rodent control Tampa service, it is important to follow the tips mentioned below.

Check the company’s licenses

Most of the local or state agencies require several licenses. The company will need a business license, often for the county and the state they are providing services for. They should also have proof showing their training and certification in the pest control business. Make sure that the license of the operator is current. Also, find out whether the employees of the company are bonded, which means whether the company will reimburse you for any damage or loss caused by any of the employees.

Look at the track record of the company

Never rely on the rodent or pest control company to get the answers to all your queries. Rather, find out the answer by yourself. Contact the Pesticide Regulatory Agency of your state as well as the Better Business Bureau to find out whether there have been any complaints lodged against the company you have selected. Also, ask people around you to get more information about the track record of the company, and go through their online reviews.

Will they discuss the treatment proposed for the home

Choosing a pest control service is as important as choosing other professional services. Therefore, you must look for a high degree of competence. Remember that a good rodent control service will definitely inspect your premises and then outline some a recommended treatment plan.

Guarantee offered by the company

There are a lot of different guarantees and warranties offered, so it is better to be skeptical about a company that doesn’t guarantee the service. Also, make sure that you find out the things to do to keep your part of the agreement.


Most companies carry general liability insurance, which includes insurance for accidental and sudden pollution. So, with this insurance, the property owner can have a degree of protection in case any accident occurs while applying pesticides in the home. Besides, some of them also offer Workers Compensation insurance that protects the employees while they work in or around a property. So, before hiring the company you think will do the best job, don’t forget to check whether it is properly insured or not.

Availability of service contract

A number of rodent control companies offer service contracts, where the properties are treated routinely for any specific pest. Contracts are necessary in the case of continuous infestation of any pest and failure of non-chemical methods to treat the issue. So, if your property needs such care, then confirm the availability of service contract before hiring them.

Is it Wise to Pursue Difficult Yoga Poses?

Yoga enthusiasts seem bent (hehe) on the pursuit of extreme asana, sometimes to their own detriment. My Anatomy teacher, Leslie Kaminoff, has coined a phrase in response to this trend toward “the unbridled pursuit of unlimited flexibility.”

Of course, some of this trend can be explained by the West’s obsession with posture generally. I have no problem with fitness yoga, yoga for fun, yoga performance or athletic yoga goals. I do think the general practitioner should be cautioned against aggressively pursuing advanced poses. Neither the pose or the dogged determination to achieve it are likely to serve one’s long-term well-being.

It’s in our nature to compete. Homo sapiens are not ideally suited to put aside short-term gains and pleasure in the service of long-term benefits. It feels good to progress, or think we’re progressing, or show off a hard won posture. It just does. Yet, no matter what we are capable of, there are at least two mitigating forces we can not control.

  • There will always be something you can not do; there is always a harder posture on the other side of this one.
  • In time, we will (willingly or unwillingly) relinquish all our accomplishments. All of them. Death is the great equalizer.

In my pursuit to check my own tendencies toward extreme flexibility and athletic prowess, I’ve found it helpful to remember this: that no matter how accomplished I am or become, there are thousands of real-life athletes, physical artists, dancers and contortionists whose talents and skills I will never have. These people actually get paid to risk their health for short-term amazement. My handstands and back bends wouldn’t even raise an eyebrow at the Cirque Du Soleil.

Yoga offers a remedy for this mind-set by encouraging equanimity. Qualities of stability and strength (stira) are balanced with qualities of permeability and openness (sukha). Asana is just a tool to discover this balance in our own system and rid ourselves of the obstacles to experiencing it.

That’s important to remember when looking around the classroom to find your neighbor effortlessly moving a foot behind her head (with a smile on her face for good measure). Because not everybody’s body was made for every pose.

And here’s the big secret: it doesn’t matter.
