Becoming an Exterminator

This licensed professional has the job of exterminating, or getting rid of, mice, spiders, roaches, termites, and other pests. They are also called a pest control technician. In addition, to getting rid of unwanted pests, they also have to educate their customers about the different methods that may use to get rid of the pest. An exterminator has to spend a good deal of time in areas that are pest-infested like crawl spaces, attics, and basements. Although it is not a glamorous job, it can be an interesting one.

Before you take training to become an exterminator you need to make sure that you do not have an aversion to small spaces because some of the areas that an exterminator has to get into can be tight or small. You also need to make sure you can deal with all the different pests that an exterminator comes in contact with. An exterminator may have to deal with roaches crawling on them, picking up dead animals, touching things that pests such as ants, roaches, spiders, etc have touched or left behind. This can include mouse droppings, roach nests, and spider webs.

You will need a high school diploma or its equivalent and once you have finished your training and have on-the-job experience, you have to pass an exam to get your certification or license. During your training, you will learn how to get rid of pests like ants, roaches, mice.. This must be done without harm to pets and humans. In regards to pesticide, use and pest removal in the state where you will work this is something you will learn in training. When you use restricted pesticides, it is important to know how to put on the right warning labels in order to prevent exposure accidentally.

You should be able to talk with your clients so you can understand their pest problems because some customers may be distressed over the pests they found and be hard to understand when they try to tell the exterminator what they found. You also need to be physically able to climb up or down stairs or crawl into a crawlspace. You will need to have a good driving record because you usually will be driving a company van or truck.

The training to become exterminator last approximately three months and then you can get a job in an entry-level position so you can get the on-the-job experience to take the exam. In this position, you will not be able to use all of the pesticides and will be restricted to a certain amount. In some states, in place of training, they may allow you to work as an apprentice before you take the exam to get your license.

Bed bugs, rats etc. are a nu-sense that you cannot live with for even a day. If your home had rats, roaches or ants then you need an exterminator. Titan Pest Control is the leading ant exterminator in NYC. Call (201) 916-4603 today!
