How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the right one to meet your needs. You may consider a company's qualifications, treatment 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?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the California regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also look at its website or peruse customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information can't be found online, speaking with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is often a deciding factor when picking a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you decide if it fits into your budget. You can also see if it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

Safety

Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of any and all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they will put in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will begin with more natural and lower-toxicity methods before using harsher chemicals.

Many companies are using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Los Banos

Some pests are more prevalent in Los Banos, and these are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Moths: If you're dealing with a moth infestation, you may notice holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Los Banos) and prefer dark places like closets.
  • Termites: Termites frequently get into your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, mulch, or firewood. If left uncontrolled, they can cause a substantial amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of California. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • 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 an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout California and can lead to major 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. These pests can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
