How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control company for you is key. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and treatment methods in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we dive into detail on 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) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets 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?

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

    There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help to prove a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with various pests. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, speaking with a representative is a great way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, view a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check its licensure status through the California licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer a provider that is environmentally-conscious.

  • Safety

    Be sure to ask your pest control technician if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should provide information about all of the pesticides used, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before relying on harsh pesticides.

    One popular method for making pest control safer and greener 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. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Arden-Arcade

Some pests are more common than others. In Arden-Arcade, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Beetles: Across the country and in Arden-Arcade, there are a variety of beetle species that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating carpeting, wood, and more.
  • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in spots like sheds, roof overhangs, attics, and garages. They are often difficult to rid yourself of, and have painful stings. Your local pest experts can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs are found in most areas of California. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Arden-Arcade

What causes pest infestations?

Pests come into your house 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, via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you see signs of pest activity in your Arden-Arcade home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we suggest contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

Is pest control safe around pets?

It's generally a good idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time following 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 company will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.

Do I need to clean after pest control services?

We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are at your house, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticide application, you may notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

In most cases, vacuuming, dusting, 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 the pest control process, continue to keep your home clean. Don't let garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps keep pests from coming back.
