One of the things I like most about my job at Connecticut Termite and Pest Control in Meriden is that I run into different types of people. We service Meriden, Wallingford, Cheshire, Southington, and all of Central Connecticut. So I get to meet people from different economic, social, and ethnic backgrounds. It really makes the job interesting and enjoyable.
One thing I’ve come to understand, in over 10 years of experience in pest control, is that a lot of people are driven by a fear to call in a professional pest control service to take care of their problem. I left a major national pest control company, which I won’t name, after working years for them because of many reasons. One of them being how they played after the clients fears to get business, in my opinion. We don’t do that. Our job is to remedy the situation, at an honest price, to alleviate the persons fear.
One major fear I run into is the fear of mice, rats, or rodents. I would have to say that in about half of my calls for mice, rats, or rodent pest control services in Connecticut the people have a genuine fear. Musophobia, or the fear of mice, is one of the most common phobias around. I know personally, because my mother suffers from it. Although when I was a teenager I thought it was the funniest thing to tell my mom I saw a mouse so she would jump on a chair it’s really not. This is a serious phobia and should be treated so by us pest control operatives without taking advantage of the situation.
Musophobia is a fear that effects people who have it in an unreasonable way. People who have fear of mice, rats, and rodents in this way aren’t thinking rationally about the true dangers of rodents, like diseases and food contamination, they are getting true anxiety. When I run into a client that is experiencing fear of rodents I always take extra time to go through with them how treatment is done, what they can expect from me as their rodent control technician, and I try to help diminish any fears they may have.
I always call a customer back the next day to see if they have any questions or concerns. I also come back for treatment and cleanup caught rodents more often for people that suffer from this fear. I don’t mind putting in a little extra time on these accounts because not only is it our job to get rid of the rodents, it’s also our job to give the clients piece of mind.
