How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Hiring the right company for you is the most important step in the pest control process. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to think about cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors 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 certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in California need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has proven that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further verify its practices and methods.

There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help verify a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has handling various pests. You can also explore its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be determined by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

You can take into consideration whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that uses eco-friendly pest management treatment methods.

Safety

Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of any and all pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to answer questions about whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they 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 should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control provider will begin with more natural and lower-toxicity methods before moving on to harsher chemicals.

Many companies are now 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
  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 absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Santa Ana

Some pests are more common than others. In Santa Ana, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most of California. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a professional 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.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
