    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When hiring a pest control company, there are several factors that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

    Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

    • 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 are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all California pesticide applicators need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These certifications can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

      Pest control companies can also be members of various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help verify a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    For the most part, a company will list information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can check a company's reputation using social media or local review sites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with California's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Things like your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors can all influence the price of pest control.

      You can learn whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not resolve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

      Your pest control expert should use pesticides that are low toxicity or non-toxic when possible. If they plan to use pesticides that don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and greener treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some follow a program called 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. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control services as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Arcadia

    Some pests are seen more commonly in Arcadia, and these pests are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

    • Beetles: In Arcadia and around the U.S., there are a variety of beetle species that could cause problems. Many beetles are harmless, but others can do damage by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout California, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Arcadia

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your home looking for shelter and get in through places like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

    There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you notice signs of pests in your Arcadia home. You might see nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

    Is pest control safe around my pets?

    Normally, it's a good idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule they should not be ingested by pets. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep your pets away from treated areas, and for how long.

    Should I clean my house after pest control services?

    We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are at your house, as the answer can vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticides are applied, you might notice a lingering smell that will dissipate over time.

    In many cases, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, you'll want to avoid wiping away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After pest control, continue keeping your home clean. Avoid letting garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This will help discourage pests from returning.
