    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control expert for you is important. You might consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

    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 established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensing is regulated at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Colorado must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Obtaining additional optional certifications can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Additional certifications can be earned through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

      Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Looking at how long a pest control company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has dealing with pests in your area. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information can't be found online, contacting a representative directly is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can check a company's reputation using the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and social media or local review sites. You can also check with Colorado's licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

    • 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 provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also take into account what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the problem is handled satisfactorily?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that uses environmentally friendly methods.

    • Safety

      Your pest control expert should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides when possible. If any pesticides used don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Companies looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

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

    Common Household Pests in Arvada

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

    • Beetles: There are a number of species of beetles around the U.S. and in Colorado. Many types are harmless, but some may feed on and do damage to things like carpeting and the wooden structure of your house.
    • Moths: If you've started noticing holes in your clothing or linens, you may have moths in your home. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places.
    • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is stored.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Arvada

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some might also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home simply looking for shelter. They can 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 a number of 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.

    Next, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off any possible pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

    How often should I hire a pest control professional?

    Generally, it's recommended that your house is treated for pests around once a year, more often if you have an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    How long does exterminator spray last?

    Most pesticides last around 30 to 90 days after application. If there is rain, chemicals applied outside may wash away sooner than those applied inside. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include the extent of the pest problem, what specific pests are present, the chemicals used, and the method of applying them.
