How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control expert, there are several things you can consider to be sure you choose the right one for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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 need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains 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?

Pest control companies can also obtain optional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is given once a company has proven that its treatment methods are more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support its practices and methods.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. The NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Browsing a pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in eliminating. Online reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If this information isn't available online, you can try contacting the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out local review sites and social media to learn what other people are saying, or verify its license standing 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 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 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 expert. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly pest control management.

Safety

Ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what precautionary measures they plan to take. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider will be able to supply information about all pesticides that they plan on using.

Treatment Methods

Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is required.
  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 when absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in San Bruno

Certain pests are more common than others. In San Bruno, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most parts of California. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout California and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
