How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Hiring the best company for you is the most important step in the pest control process. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Colorado must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is given once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further verify its practices and methods.

    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. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with various pests. Customer reviews or the company's website itself can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. 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

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is often a deciding factor when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you figure out if it fits into your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    Be sure to ask your pest control technician if they will be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should provide information about all of the pesticides to be used, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring cleaner and greener pest solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    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 biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Westminster

Some specific pests are more common in Westminster, and these pests are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Ants: Ants can be found 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 home.
  • Beetles: There are a number of species of beetles across the U.S. and in Colorado. Many are harmless, but some can eat and damage things like your carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Colorado, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Westminster

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house looking for shelter and get in through places like broken screens or foundation cracks.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of things you can do 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, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Lastly, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you notice signs of pest activity in your Westminster home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we suggest getting in touch with a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

What do I need to do before a pest control technician comes to my house?

Before your pest control technician arrives, check and see if they want you to clean around your home, including in areas where there have been signs of pests. Some pest technicians may prefer to see your home as-is.

If you are asked to clean, make sure all paper goods and trash are out of the affected areas (as pests can hide in these items), and that you store food securely so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. You might also want to remove plants from the area. Also make sure to block off areas to be treated to keep children and pets away until it is safe. If the problem needs more intensive pest control, such as fumigation, follow your pest professional's instructions closely.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Generally, pesticide application lasts around 30 to 90 days. The exact duration varies based on which pests are being targeted, how many of them there are, what chemicals are used, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Chemicals applied outdoors might wear away faster than those inside if there is rain.
