How To Choose a Pest Control Company

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

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

    All pesticide applicators (and those who 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 any pesticide applicators working in the state of Arizona should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Obtaining additional optional certifications can help prove that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Other various certifications can be obtained through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company will list information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out social media and local review sites to see what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing via the Arizona licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can think about whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment may influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will start with more environmentally friendly options before employing pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Maricopa

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

  • Wasps: In many cases, wasps are hard to rid yourself of, especially if you're trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in places like sheds, attics, roof overhangs, and garages.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Maricopa

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests come into your house looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your house looking for shelter. They can 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 possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

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

It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If there is an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do I need to worry about my pets during or after pest control?

Usually, it's a good idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but generally they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep your pets away from treated areas, and for how long.
