How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Important factors include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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 who supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets 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?

    Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to 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 company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also become members of certain professional organizations. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, plus a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry 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

    It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected influenced by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

    Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that employs environmentally friendly practices.

  • Safety

    You will want 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

    Organizations 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

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

  • Cockroaches: It's important to deal with a cockroach infestation promptly, as they can bring in diseases such as salmonella. Cockroaches can be found throughout Arizona, and they prefer wetter areas.
  • Snakes: Snakes often enter houses looking for food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, damp, and cool areas. Although the majority of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other dark, damp areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Arizona, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Mesa

What causes pest infestations?

Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you notice signs of pests in your Mesa home. This could include nests, droppings, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

Can I clean my home after pest control services?

Whether you can clean your home following pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician while they are at your home. In many cases, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

Following pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.
