How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control treatment method for you is important. You might consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also 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?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Arkansas need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can also obtain optional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is given once a company has shown its methods to be more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further verify its methods and practices.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps verify a company's reputability. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with various pests. Online reviews or the company's own website can also inform you whether it has the experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is an excellent way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. You can also verify the status of a company's license via the Arkansas licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is often a deciding factor when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should supply information on every pesticide they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in Little Rock

Some pests are more common than others. In Little Rock, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Fleas: These pests tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Little Rock) and often get into your home by hiding in pet fur.
  • 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 an infestation of them in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Arkansas, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is stored.
