How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is selecting the right pest control company for the job. Things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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

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

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is overseen at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in California need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control professionals can also belong to professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help to prove a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company provides information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

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

For many people, cost is one of the most important factors when hiring for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and your location.

You can think about whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control company, and you might prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly treatment plans.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Companies often begin with more eco-friendly solutions before using harsh pesticides, using a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

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

Common Household Pests in Tracy

Not all pests are equally common around Tracy. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Flies: You may see flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept. Flies might get into your Tracy home year-round, but they're particularly common during warmer months.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout California, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.
