How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

  • Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in California must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • 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 environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also belong to various professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also enlighten you about whether it has the skills and experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, contacting the company directly is an easy way to learn about its areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look at a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to see what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing via the California licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides used around your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be capable of providing information about any pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some utilize a program called 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 required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Burbank

In Burbank, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Burbank home, but they are especially common when the weather is warmer. You may spot flies around sinks or in places where you keep food.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of California. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other moist, dark areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout California and can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Burbank

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might seek out and eat food or trash left sitting out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your house simply looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you see signs of pests in your Burbank home. You might see droppings, nests, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If your home has seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

What do I need to do before pest control services?

We strongly suggest that you ask your pest professional if they want you to clean around your house. This can help them find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some technicians may want to see your house as-is.

If you are asked to clean, clear paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure to put all food away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. Remove any plants in the area to avoid contamination with chemicals. Finally, if needed, block off anticipated treatment areas so that pets and children do not enter until it is safe. If you require a more intensive process like fumigation, be sure to closely follow your pest professional's instructions.
