How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the best one to meet your needs. You might consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all California pesticide applicators need to be licensed through the proper 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 eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company will list information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. 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

You can check a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, read reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the California licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the issue is satisfactorily resolved?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Be sure to ask your pest control provider if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they will have in place. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider will be able to provide you with information about all of the pesticides that they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more eco-friendly pest control solutions before jumping into using harsh pesticides.

One popular method for 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 determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Davis

Certain pests are more prevalent in Davis, and these pests are the ones you should keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Termites: Termites can often enter your house from nearby piles of mulch, rotting wood, or firewood. If left uncontrolled, they can cause a significant amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Beetles: Around the country and in Davis, there are a variety of beetle species that could create problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can do damage by eating carpeting, wood, and more.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of California. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout California, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your home.
