How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of things that you can take into consideration when choosing the best pest control solutionfor you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in California must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to back up its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

Pest control companies can also be members of certain professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help verify a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at a pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If this information isn't available online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read social media and local review sites to see what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing through the California licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be affected by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

Companies will often 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 provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

Your pest technician should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If they plan to use pesticides that don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will start with more eco-friendly and lower-toxicity methods before employing harsher chemicals.

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

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Orange

You might encounter some pests more frequently in Orange. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found throughout California, although they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches might get into your house through small cracks, and some can bring in diseases like salmonella.
  • Mosquitoes: On top of being annoying, mosquito infestations can result in itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes are most common in wetter climates and at warmer times of the year.
  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most of California. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout California, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is stored or in attics.
