How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, there are several things that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. Important decision-making factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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?

All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in California must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can optionally apply for additional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to back up its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with the pests that live in Clovis. Customer reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is an easy way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Pest control costs can vary based on things like the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

When considering the cost of services, you should verify whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company provide additional treatments until the issue is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment might affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Ask your pest control technician if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they plan to take. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to supply information about all chemicals they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

Pest control companies looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether 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. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Clovis

In Clovis, certain pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being a nuisance, mosquito infestations can lead to itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates and warmer weather.
  • Fleas: Typically, fleas prefer warmer weather (which can make them a particular problem in Clovis) and are frequently brought inside by pets.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
