How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control expert for you is important. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

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 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 granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These certifications can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

A pest control company can also obtain membership in professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's level of experience by finding out how many years it has been in operation. Local reviews and the company's own website can also tell you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, look for 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

Cost is important when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be 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 before starting work, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

All pesticides that will be used (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should supply information on all the pesticides that they plan to use. They should inform you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

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

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

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem 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 physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Moorpark

Some pests are more common than others. In Moorpark, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your home (and some companies even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be particularly keen to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household is allergic.
  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs are found in most parts of California. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to quash, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout California, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
