    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step is selecting the right pest control professional for the job. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

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

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

      All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in the state of Arizona must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can optionally apply for certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to support its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

      Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer added peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can get some insight into a company's experience level by looking into how long it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether a company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      The cost of pest control 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 provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the problem is resolved satisfactorily?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that employes eco-friendly practices.

    • Safety

      Your pest control provider should be able to discuss the safety of the pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to clarify whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions will be used to protect you, your family, and your pets. Any pesticides that pose above a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

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

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Goodyear

    Not all pests are equally prevalent in Goodyear. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

    • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches throughout Arizona, although they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches come inside through small cracks, and they can bring in diseases like salmonella.
    • Beetles: In Goodyear and around the U.S., there are a number of species of beetles that could create problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Goodyear

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests enter your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also enter your home simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How frequently do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

    Generally, it's recommended that you have your house treated for pests about once annually, more frequently if you have an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Can pests come out after spraying for them?

    It's not unusual to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control. Pest control tends to flush pests out of their hiding spaces, which makes them more visible; you might also see more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after one to two weeks, reach out to your Goodyear pest professional. Further treatment may be necessary.

    How long does it take for pest control to work?

    How soon you see pest control results will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician takes measures like removing a wasp nest, you will see the results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant results. Some pest issues might require your technician to make multiple trips to your house.
