How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, there are several factors you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. Some things you might consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we explore the details of 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 must be licensed at the state level. The EPA has established minimum standards of competency, and the California regulatory agencies take care of the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control companies. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by seeing how many years it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also tell you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can call the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. You can also check the status of a company's license through the California licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

The cost of pest control 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 try to determine whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or if it returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the issue is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control provider might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a company's practicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

Your pest technician should use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides any time they can. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will begin with lower-toxicity, more natural methods before using harsher chemicals.

Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Turlock

Certain pests are more common than others. In Turlock, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Moths: If you're dealing with a moth infestation, you might start finding holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Turlock) and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs can be found in most of California. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to eliminate, 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.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.
