Our Code of Ethics

Our strict code of ethics helps our team maintain independence, transparency, accuracy, objectivity, and high-quality content. Our first priority is to help readers find the best pest control product. We try to evaluate all the items on the market as unbiased as possible and equally consider both their pluses and minuses. Loyalty to these principles guarantees that our readers can trust the blog team’s opinion.

Basic Guidelines for Authors and Editors

In addition to the code of ethics, our team adheres to clear guidelines, trying to maintain maximum transparency in ratings and reviews:

  • We do not inform companies, brands, or agencies in advance that we plan to include their products in our review articles.
  • None of our team accepts valuable items, money, or gifts as bribes from manufacturers, their representatives, or marketing departments.
  • Our site does not host sponsored content in any existing forms.
  • We never submit our reviews and articles for proofreading to manufacturing companies.
  • Our experts are prohibited from covering brands and products whose success they may have a direct interest in.

Steps of the Editing Process

The content creation on this blog has a clear structure, allowing us to achieve maximum quality and accuracy.

1. Research materials

Before writing articles, our experts conduct thorough market research on a given topic. It takes into account the top products, items most in demand among consumers, and recommendations from our affiliate partners. We study descriptions from manufacturers, read reviews from real users, and based on them, we compile a list of pest control tools that deserve our attention.

2. Writing and editing

We compile an article, top, or guide based on our own research. We run finished texts through specialized editing software to ensure there are no grammatical and stylistic errors and check the material’s uniqueness. Articles verified this way are sent for proofreading to Nicholas Martin, the Pest Control Hacks leader and owner. He reviews the submissions to make sure they are accurate and appropriate for the blog’s audience. Articles approved by Nicholas are forwarded to our web specialist, who gives them a publishable look and adds pictures to the texts.

3. Revision of old articles

We know that the market for pest control products does not stand still, and new tools appear literally every day. That is why blog experts regularly review published materials to make sure the products and reviews presented are up to date. When they find that a link they posted is no longer active, user reviews have gotten worse, or better tools have appeared on the market, they do new research. Thus, the information in the blog is updated and supplemented regularly so that readers have only the latest data on the best pest control methods.
