How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to find the right one to meet your needs. A company's qualifications and treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you also want to think about cost.

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

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Connecticut need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    An optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To get this certification, a pest control company needs to both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain technician training standards. Companies can also obtain other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

    There are certain professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. When a company becomes a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has taking care of pests in your area. You can also look at its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to learn what other people are saying, or verify its license standing through the Connecticut licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what kind of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a company's practices are, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    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 Norwalk

You might deal with some pests more frequently in Norwalk. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most of Connecticut. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Connecticut, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Norwalk

What causes pest infestations?

Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you notice signs of pests in your Norwalk home—such as droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

Can I clean after pest control services?

We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are at your house, as the answer will vary depending on the treatments used. After pesticide application, you may notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

Generally, vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure that you don't wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After the pest control process, continue to keep your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
