How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, there are a number of factors that you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. Factors you might consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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, as well as those that supervise them, should be licensed via the appropriate Connecticut regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

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 eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also belong to professional organizations. Being a member of organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in operation and what kind of pests it specializes in eliminating. Online reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check the status of its license through the Connecticut licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your technician will begin with lower-toxicity, more natural options before trying harsher chemicals.

Many companies have started to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in Meriden

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

  • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches in many parts of Connecticut, although they prefer wetter areas. This can make them an even bigger problem in Meriden. Cockroaches can enter your home through small cracks, and they can sometimes bring in diseases like salmonella.
  • Ticks: Tick infestations can be dangerous because they might bring Lyme or other diseases into your home. You are likely at increased risk of a tick infestation if you live close to a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Connecticut, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your house.
