How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is picking the right pest control company for the job. You might consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensing is overseen at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Arizona need to be licensed through the proper 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 show that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Other various certifications can be obtained through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

A pest control company can also belong to various professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps verify a company's reputability. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has taking care of common pests in San Tan Valley. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are dealing with. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the Arizona licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When thinking about the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the issue is satisfactorily resolved?

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information on each pesticide they plan to use. They should inform you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

Treatment Methods

Many pest control companies are making the switch to using more natural and greener treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some use a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in San Tan Valley

You might deal with some pests more frequently in San Tan Valley. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Mosquitoes: A mosquito infestation is more likely if your home is in a wetter area. They're also more common when the weather is warmer. Mosquitoes are more than just annoying—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
