How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensure is handled 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?

One optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to get this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain technician training standards. Companies can earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

A pest control company can also hold membership in professional organizations. While not mandatory, 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 resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has handling various pests in Tulare. You can also look at its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can browse reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, verify a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check the status of its license through the California licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors can all influence the cost of pest control.

You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment might affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions around pesticides being used around your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about all pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should 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 trying harsher chemicals.

Many companies now use 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Tulare

Certain pests are more common than others. In Tulare, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of California. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather and are frequently brought inside by pets.
  • Snakes: Snakes prefer cool, dark, and damp places and often come into 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.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other moist, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a local 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.
