How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things that you can take into consideration when selecting the best pest control treatment planfor you. You might consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

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

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

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in California need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for humans and the environment.

Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. 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. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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 eliminating. Online reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try contacting the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read 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

Pest control costs can vary based on things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

When thinking about the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the problem is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Be sure to ask your pest control provider if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they plan to take. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider will be able to provide you with information about all pesticides that they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now exploring more environmentally friendly pest control solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in Santa Rosa

In Santa Rosa, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs can be found in most areas of California. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Snakes: Snakes prefer dark, cool, and damp spots and will often enter a home in search of food. Most species of snakes are harmless, but this is not a risk that you want your family or pets to take.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other damp, dark areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout California, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is kept or in attics.
