How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things you can take into consideration when choosing the best pest control treatment methodfor you. You may consider a company's qualifications, 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?

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has proven its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support its methods and practices.

Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company displays information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also inform you as to 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 reputation using the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and social media or local review sites. You can also check with California's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatments until the problem is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when selecting a pest control company. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly treatment plans.

Safety

Ask your pest control expert if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what precautionary measures they will have in place. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to provide you with information about all of the pesticides they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and environmentally friendly treatment methods before, or instead of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called 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. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control treatments as needed.

Common Household Pests in Fairfield

You might deal with some pests more frequently in Fairfield. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles around the U.S. and in California. Many are harmless, but some can eat and damage things like carpeting and the wooden structure of your house.
  • Termites: If termites get out of hand, they could cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Often, termites get into your house via nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood.
  • Ticks: Tick infestations can be dangerous because they might bring Lyme or other diseases into your home. You might be at increased risk of these infestations if your home is near a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout California, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
