How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is hiring the right pest control professional for the job. You might consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we explore the details of 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 need to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Arizona must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control professionals 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 demonstrate a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by seeing how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also let you know whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can call the company directly to learn this information if it is not available 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 Arizona's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you figure out if it fits into your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be affected by how eco-friendly a company's practicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control technician should supply information about any pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Pest professionals looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the 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 when absolutely necessary, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Mesa

You might encounter some pests more frequently in Mesa. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can sometimes spread diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches can be found throughout Arizona, and they prefer wetter areas.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to eliminate, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
