    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control company, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. Some things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

    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) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in Arizona should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to back up its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

      Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, in addition to a professional network to compare best practices with. Membership in one of these organizations is not required, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Browsing a company's website can tell you how long it has been in operation and what kind of pests it specializes in eliminating. Local reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If this information isn't available online, you can try contacting the company directly.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, read reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Arizona licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when hiring for pest control. Cost can be influenced by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

      You can think about whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

    • Safety

      Your pest technician should use pesticides that are low toxicity or non-toxic any time they can. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Companies often begin with more environmentally friendly options before using pesticides, following 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 whether immediate action is required.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
      4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Lake Havasu City

    Certain pests are more common than others. In Lake Havasu City, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Flies: You might notice flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept. Flies can get into your Lake Havasu City home year-round, but they're especially common in warmer weather.
    • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather (which can make them a particular problem in Lake Havasu City) and can often be brought in by pets.
    • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Lake Havasu City

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Second, avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

    When should I hire a pest control professional?

    Any time you see signs of pests in your Lake Havasu City home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call your local pest professional. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

    Do I need to clean my house after pest control services?

    We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are in your home, as the answer can vary depending on the treatments used. After application of pesticides, you may notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

    In most cases, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces will be appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After the pest control process, continue keeping your home clean. Don't let garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps keep pests from coming back.
