This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is selecting the best pest control company for the job. Important factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of California should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a pest control company needs to both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up their work.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with pests in your area. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the skills and experience necessary to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If you can't find the information you need online, contacting the company directly is a great way to learn about its areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to select one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to supply information on every pesticide they will be using. They should inform you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before moving to harsh pesticides.

    One popular way of making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Vallejo

In Vallejo, certain pests are more common than others. This list includes 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 pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout California, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Vallejo

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

How frequently do I need to hire a pest control professional?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If there is an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Will I need to clean my home after pest control services?

Whether you can clean your home following pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician before they leave. Typically, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

Following pest control, it is important to maintain a clean home to avoid encouraging pests to return.
