How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the best one to meet your needs. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

  • 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 licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to obtain this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more eco-friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, plus a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Joining one of these organizations is not required, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, 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 can't get the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), 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 probably high on your list of priorities when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

    Companies will often offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to select one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an eco-friendly provider.

  • Safety

    All pesticides used by your company (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide you with information on every pesticide they will be using. 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

    You can ask if your pest control provider will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity methods before employing harsher chemicals.

    Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Bellflower

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

  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your home (and some companies even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be especially eager to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household has an allergy.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Bellflower

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

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

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If there is an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

Your pest control company will inform you how far your pets should be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but in the vast majority of cases you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after treatment.

How long does it take for pest control to work?

How soon you see results from pest control will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you will see results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for substantial results. Some pest problems might require your technician to make multiple visits to your home.
