    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step is selecting the best pest control company for the job. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. 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?

      All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) are required 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 Colorado should be licensed via 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 eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

      Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help verify 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 share best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Browsing a pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't find this information online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. You can also check the status of a company's license via the Colorado licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can find out whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what kind of guarantees it has. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer an eco-friendly provider.

    • Safety

      Be sure to ask your pest control provider if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides to be used, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

    • Treatment Methods

      Organizations looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

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

    Common Household Pests in Loveland

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

    • Moths: If you are noticing holes in your linens or clothing, you may have moths in your house. Moths like dark places like closets, and are more commonly found in warmer places.
    • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of Colorado. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your house.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
    • 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 Colorado, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
    • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is stored or in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Loveland

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests enter your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also enter your house simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots like foundation cracks or broken screens.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential 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 as well as not leaving trash out. Third, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How often should I hire a pest control professional?

    In general, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests about once annually, more often if you have an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Do I need to worry about my pets during pest control visits?

    Usually, it's a smart idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control company will tell you how far to keep pets away from treated areas, and for how long.

    How long does pest control last?

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