How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the best pest control treatment planfor you. You may consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is handled 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?

A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to support its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

There are various professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, in addition to a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to organizations like these is not required, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Browsing a pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what kind of pests it specializes in eliminating. Local reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If this information isn't available online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse 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

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

You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not resolve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions around pesticides used around your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control expert should be able to supply information about the pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and eco-friendly treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some follow a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  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 biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control methods as needed.

Common Household Pests in Hanford

In Hanford, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs are found in most areas of California. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Fleas: Fleas prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Hanford) and often get into your house by hiding in the fur of pets.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout California and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
