How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control professional, there are a number of factors you can consider to be sure you choose the best one for you. You may 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?

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing 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?

    There are additional optional certifications that can help prove that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a company must show that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Other various certifications can be earned through trade organizations like QualityPro.

    There are several professional organizations that pest control companies can be members of. When a company obtains membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest control company's level of experience by finding out how many years it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Pest control costs can vary based on things like the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatments until the problem is satisfactorily handled?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control professional. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly pest control management.

  • Safety

    You want to ensure that you understand the precautions around pesticides being used in your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be able to supply information about any pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    You can ask if your technician will start with lower-toxicity, more natural options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

    Many companies have started to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Prescott

Not all pests are equally common around Prescott. Some species that you should keep an eye out for are these:

  • Moths: If your house has moths, you might notice holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Prescott) and enjoy dark places like closets.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Arizona and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where food is stored.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are often found in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Prescott

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your home looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also enter your house looking for shelter and 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. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, eliminate standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

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

Will pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

It's not unusual to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the first few days or weeks after pest control. The process tends to flush pests out of their hiding places, thereby making them more visible; you may also find more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after one to two weeks, contact your Prescott pest professional. Further treatment may be required.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Most pesticides last approximately 30 to 90 days after application. If there is rain, chemicals applied outside may wash away sooner than those applied inside. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include the extent of the pest problem, what specific pests are present, the chemicals used, and the method of applying them.
