LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- This is National Pest Management Month. In this Rip-Off Alert, the Better Business Bureau says before you call for help to get rid of unwanted insects, there are a few things to consider.

Do your research: Ask friends or professional associations about pest control companies they've used successfully and make sure the company is licensed.

Read the contract carefully: Before signing the contract, make sure you understand what work will be done and if the company has liability insurance to cover any potential damage.

Avoid high pressure sales tactics: If the bargain sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Watch out for uninvited solicitations or offers for free inspections.
