How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of things that you can take into consideration when choosing the right pest control treatment methodfor you. You might take into consideration 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?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum competency standards, and the California regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To receive this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more eco-friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also obtain other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company joins an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the California licensing board.

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 price of pest control.

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that provides eco-friendly treatment plans.

Safety

Your pest control expert should be able to discuss the safety of any pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose above a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more eco-friendly pest control solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

One common method for making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in La Puente

In La Puente, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most of California. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to eliminate, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout California, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
