How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the best pest control treatment methodfor you. Important factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the California regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

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 awarded once a company has proven that its treatment methods are more eco-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 QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further verify its practices and methods.

A pest control company can also hold membership in certain professional organizations. Membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, plus a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has handling various pests in Brea. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, contacting a representative directly is a good way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out social media and local review sites to hear what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing 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.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that uses eco-friendly pest management treatment methods.

Safety

Your pest control technician should be able to explain the safety precautions of any and all pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to clarify whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies have started offering options for more environmentally friendly treatment methods before employing harsh pesticides.

One common method for making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
  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. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Brea

Certain pests are more common than others. In Brea, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found throughout California, although they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches come inside through small cracks, and they can sometimes carry diseases like salmonella.
  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most areas of California. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where you keep food.
