How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, 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?

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Arizona must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for humans and the environment.

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also browse its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information is not available online, contacting a representative directly is a great way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can check a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse 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

    Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be influenced by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

    Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment might influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control technician if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what kind of precautionary measures they are going to use. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to supply information about all chemicals that they plan on using.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many are following 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 required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Prescott Valley

Some pests are more common in Prescott Valley, and these are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes looking for food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, damp, and cool spots. While most species of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Prescott Valley

What causes pest infestations?

Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

How frequently should I hire someone to do pest control?

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

Why is preventive pest control important?

Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they begin. Local pest control companies know about the pests that live in your part of Prescott Valley, including how they get into homes and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can recommend changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your home, saving you time and money that you might otherwise spend on future pest control visits—and on the damage and illness caused by pests.
