How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control company, there are a number of things you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews are 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?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in California should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order 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 also obtain other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

There are certain professional organizations that pest control companies can be members of. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership provides companies with access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

Reviews and Recommendations

You can verify a company's legitimacy 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

Things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors can all affect the cost of pest control.

You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control company. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly treatment methods.

Safety

Your pest technician should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If any pesticides used don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions will be in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Nowadays, many companies are exploring more environmentally friendly pest control solutions that can be used before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Foothill Farms

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Foothill Farms. Some species that you should be on the lookout for are these:

  • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles around the U.S. and in California. Many species are harmless, but some can feed on and do damage to things like your carpeting and the wooden structure of your house.
  • Termites: Termites often come into your house from nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood. If left uncontrolled, they can cause significant damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in places like roof overhangs, sheds, garages, and attics. They have painful stings and are often difficult to get rid of. Your local pest control company can help remove wasp nests from your property safely.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other moist, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
