    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control treatment plan for you is key. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

    Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

      While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in California should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These certifications can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for humans and the environment.

      Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. The NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    The amount of time that a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, reaching out to the company directly is an easy way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can verify a company's legitimacy using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with California's licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can look into whether a company provides 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 take care of your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

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

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
      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 absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Glendora

    Certain pests are more common than others. In Glendora, common pests to be wary of include the following:

    • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can bring in diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches are found in many places throughout California, and they prefer wetter areas.
    • Ants: Ants are common in basically all of California. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
    • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other damp, dark areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your home.
    • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where food is stored.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout California, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are tricky to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Glendora

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash left sitting out. Some might also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home simply looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

    Typically, it's recommended that your house is treated for pests around once a year, more frequently if you have an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Why is preventive pest control important?

    If you get pests in your home, you might find yourself spending a large amount of time and money ridding yourself of them, and possibly recovering from illness or damages they caused. Preventive pest control can help stop things like this from happening.

    What should I do before my pest control technician arrives at my house?

    Be sure to ask your pest technician if they need you to clean around your home. This can help them find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some providers may want to see your home as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, clear paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. Remove any plants in the area to avoid contamination with chemicals. Lastly, if needed, block off expected treatment areas so that pets and children do not enter until it is safe. If a more intensive process like fumigation is required, be sure to closely follow your pest professional's instructions.
