How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control professional, there are several factors you can consider to be sure you choose the best one for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you may also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

    All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate California regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain technician training standards. Companies can obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. 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. Membership in organizations like these is not mandatory, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest control company's experience level by seeing how long it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can call the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out local review sites and social media to see what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing through 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 cost of pest control.

    You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve 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 which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Make sure to ask your pest control provider if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what kind 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 should be able to supply information about all chemicals that they plan on using.

  • Treatment Methods

    It is now common for companies to start with more environmentally friendly options before using pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is required.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Inglewood

You might run into some pests more frequently in Inglewood. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Termites: Termites frequently get into your house from nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood. If not taken care of, they can do significant damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your house (some even are able to safely relocate hives). You may be particularly eager to have bees' nests removed if there is someone in your household who has an allergy.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to eliminate, so we strongly recommend hiring an 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Inglewood

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

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

When should I hire a pest control professional?

You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Inglewood home. This can include seeing nests, droppings, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If your home has recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend annual preventive pest management.

Why is preventive pest control important?

Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they begin. Local pest control companies know about the pests that live in your part of Inglewood, including how they make their way into your home and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can make changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your house, which can save time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.

How soon can I expect to see results from pest control?

How soon you see results from pest control will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician takes measures like removing a wasp nest, you can see the results almost immediately. However, for most pest control you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for substantial results. Some infestations may require your technician to make multiple visits to your house.
