How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control professional, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to think about cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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 are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Arizona pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

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 that its treatment methods are more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up its practices and methods.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company will list information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look for reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check its licensure status through the Arizona licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is often a deciding factor when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Your pest control provider should be able to explain the safety precautions of the pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to answer questions about whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Companies often start with more eco-friendly treatment options before employing pesticides, using a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Gilbert

Not all pests are equally prevalent in Gilbert. Some species that you should be on the lookout for are these:

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found throughout Arizona, though they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches can get into your house through small cracks, and they can carry diseases like salmonella.
  • Mosquitoes: On top of being a nuisance, mosquito infestations can lead to itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates and in warmer months.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of Arizona. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your home.
