How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination 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 consider 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 their supervisors need to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all California pesticide applicators should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. A pest control company can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has dealing with pests in your area. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the type of pests you are dealing with. If this information is not available online, contacting a representative directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, 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) and what kind of guarantees it has. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that offers eco-friendly solutions.

Safety

All pesticides used by your company (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should provide you with information on all the pesticides that 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 will be in place.

Treatment Methods

It is now common for companies to begin with more environmentally friendly options before using pesticides, using a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  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 when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Chula Vista

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

  • Wasps: Wasps are often hard to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid being stung. They are commonly found in spots like garages, roof overhangs, sheds, and attics.
  • Flies: You may see flies around sinks or in areas where you keep food. Flies can get into your house in Chula Vista throughout the year, but they're particularly common in warmer weather.
  • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, cool, and damp areas. Although most species of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other moist, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your home.
