    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    There are several factors that you can consider when choosing the right pest control company for you. You may consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost of services.

    Below, we explore the details of each factor.

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

      Per 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 standards of competency, and the California regulatory agencies take care of the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to obtain this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate 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.

      Pest control companies can also belong to professional organizations. Membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    For the most part, a company will list 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're unable to locate the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license via the California licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be affected influenced by the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

      Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

      It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used in your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information about all pesticides they plan on using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your technician will start with more natural and lower-toxicity options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

      Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Identify problem pests and determine if 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 when required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Lincoln

    In Lincoln, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

    • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer damp, cool, and dark places. While the majority of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
    • Moths: If you're dealing with a moth infestation, you may start finding holes in your clothing or linens. Moths do best in warmer weather and are often found in dark places like closets.
    • Termites: If a termite infestation is left untreated, the result could be hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Termites often enter your home via nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout California and can lead to major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.
    • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Lincoln

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests come into your house looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your house simply looking for shelter and 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 home. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

    When should I hire an exterminator?

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pests in your Lincoln home. You might see droppings, nests, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend annual preventive pest management.

    Do I need to clean my home after pest control services?

    We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are in your home, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticide application, you may notice a lingering smell that will dissipate over time.

    In most cases, vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After pest control, continue keeping your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This will help keep pests from coming back.
