How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control expert, there are a number of things you can consider to be sure you choose the right one for you. You might take into consideration a 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 discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensure 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?

    An optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Customer reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the experience necessary to handle your specific pest problem. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, reaching out to the company directly is an easy way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like your location, the type of pest being treated, and the size of your house.

    You can think about whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when picking a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that offers eco-friendly solutions.

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used in your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control expert 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 they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Companies often start with more eco-friendly solutions before employing harsh pesticides, using a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether 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. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Sierra Vista

In Sierra Vista, some species of pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Flies: You may notice flies around sinks or in areas where you keep food. Flies can get into your Sierra Vista home year-round, but they're even more common during warmer months.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Arizona, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Sierra Vista

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is left out. Some might also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your house simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, eliminate standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

Any time you notice signs of pests in your Sierra Vista home—which could include nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If you've had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we suggest contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

How soon will I see results from pest control services?

How soon you notice results from pest control will depend on the problem and treatment. If your pest control technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see the results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for substantial results. Some pest issues may require your pest professional to make multiple trips to your home.
