How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is picking the right pest control professional for the job. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, should be licensed via the appropriate California regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to earn this certification, a pest control company needs to both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up their work.

There are certain professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with various pests. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also inform you whether it has the skills and experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If you can't find the information you need online, calling a representative is an excellent way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when picking 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.

Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to supply information on all the pesticides that they are using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control management solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

One popular method for making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Alhambra

Certain pests are more common than others. In Alhambra, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Flies: You might notice flies around sinks or in areas where you keep food. Flies can get into your Alhambra home year-round, but they're particularly common when the weather gets warmer.
  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most parts of California. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout California and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your home.
