    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control professional, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you also want to consider cost.

    Below, we explore the details of 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 taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in California should be licensed by all the necessary 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 other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

      A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss 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 various pests. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also enlighten you about whether it has the skills and experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

      Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment might influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

    • Safety

      You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides being used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about the pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

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

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in West Covina

    In West Covina, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

    • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can sometimes spread diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches can be found in many places throughout California, and they prefer wetter areas.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout California, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in West Covina

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some might also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also enter your house simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

    There are several steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

    Any time you see signs of pest activity in your West Covina home—things like droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If you've had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    Do I need to clean my house after pest control services?

    Whether you can clean your home after pest control services will change depending on the type of treatment(s) used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician before they leave. Generally, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, but 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 treatment, it is important to maintain a clean home to avoid encouraging pests to return.
