    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control professional, there are a number of things that you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to consider the cost of services.

    Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

      All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in California should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      There are additional optional certifications that can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Additional certifications can be obtained through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

      A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has handling various pests in Adelanto. You can also explore its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, calling the company directly is a good way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, browse reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the California licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you figure out if it fits into your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your choice of pest control provider might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a provider's pest control management solutionsare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your pest control provider will start with more natural and lower-toxicity treatment methods before moving on to harsher chemicals.

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

    Common Household Pests in Adelanto

    Some pests are more common than others. In Adelanto, common pests to be wary of include the following:

    • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found throughout California, though they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches can come inside through small cracks, and sometimes carry diseases like salmonella.
    • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of California. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout California and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
    • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Adelanto

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. 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 on your property 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 possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

    It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If your home has an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

    It's not uncommon to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the first few days or weeks after pest control treatment. The process tends to flush pests out of their hiding spaces, which makes them more visible; you might also see more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after a week or two, contact your Adelanto pest professional, as another treatment may be required.

    How soon can I expect to see results from pest control services?

    How soon you notice results from pest control will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician takes measures like removing a wasp nest, you will see the results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you may need to wait anywhere from a few days to up to six weeks for substantial results. Some pest problems may require your pest professional to make multiple trips to your home.
