How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the right one to meet your needs. Things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum standards of competency, and the Connecticut regulatory agencies take care of the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. While not required, they can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for humans and the environment.

Pest control companies can also become members of certain professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps verify a company's reputability. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest company's level of experience by seeing how long it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also let you know whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control expert should provide information about any pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

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

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Milford

You might encounter some pests more frequently in Milford. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs can be found in most areas of Connecticut. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Connecticut, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is kept.
