How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is picking the best pest control professional for the job. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to think about cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, and the Alabama regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has proven its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its methods and practices.

A pest control company can also belong to professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a pest control company's experience level by seeing how long it has been in operation. Local reviews and the company's own website can also let you know whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always call the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's reputation using social media or local review sites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Alabama's licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Pest control costs can vary based on things like your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatment until the issue is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that uses environmentally friendly methods.

Safety

You want to ensure that you understand the precautions for the pesticides being used in your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be capable of providing information about the pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Huntsville

In Huntsville, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of Alabama. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in places like sheds, attics, roof overhangs, and garages. They have painful stings and are often difficult to exterminate. Your local pest professional can help remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Alabama and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where you keep food.
