This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control expert, there are several factors that you can consider to be sure you choose the best one for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might 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 discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To get this certification, a pest control company needs to both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Being a member of organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a pest control company's experience level by finding out how long it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether a certain company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • 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 see what other people are saying, or verify its license standing via 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 the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and your location.

    You can consider whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions around pesticides being used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control expert should be able to provide information about any pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control solutions before jumping into using 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 assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the 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 with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Claremont

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

  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most areas of California. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Snakes: Snakes prefer damp, cool, and dark areas and will often enter a home in search of food. While most species of snakes are harmless, this is not a risk that you want your family or pets to take.
  • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches throughout California, though they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches can enter your home through small cracks, and some can spread diseases like salmonella.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Claremont

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

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

Next, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

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

It is generally 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 frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Can I clean my home after pest control services?

We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are at your house, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticide application, you may notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

Typically, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After the problem is taken care of, continue to keep your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
