How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one to meet your needs. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you may also consider 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?

All pesticide applicators (and those that 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 the state of California must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can receive optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro in order to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain training standards for employees.

Pest control companies can also become members of certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to resources and education, plus a professional network to compare best practices with. Belonging to organizations like these is not required, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also verify 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 most important factors when picking a company for pest control services. Cost can be affected by factors like the type of pest being treated, your location, and the size of your house.

You can look into whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort 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

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when selecting a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that uses eco-friendly treatment methods.

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information on every pesticide they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly pest control solutions before relying on harsh pesticides.

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

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine 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 when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Coachella

Certain pests are more common than others. In Coachella, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your home (and some companies even are able to safely relocate hives). You may be especially eager to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household is allergic.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in attics.
