How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control treatment plan for you is key. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you also want to consider cost.

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, as well as those that supervise them, should be licensed via the appropriate California regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control experts with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has handling pests in your area. You can also explore its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type 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

Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), local review sites, and social media. Additionally, you can check the status of a company's license through the California licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when hiring for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like your location, the size of your house, and the type of pest being treated.

You can think about whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control company, and you might prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly pest control management.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly treatment methods before employing harsh pesticides.

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

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Brentwood

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

  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Brentwood) and often get inside by hiding in pet fur.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout California, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
