How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several factors you can consider when choosing the right pest control treatment planfor you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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 standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Connecticut should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

An optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to earn this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more eco-friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with various pests. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also help you figure out whether it has the experience necessary to deal with your particular pests. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, reaching out to the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out local review sites and social media to see what others in your area have to say, 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 affect the price of pest control.

You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type 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

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that employes eco-friendly practices.

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should be able to supply information on all the pesticides that they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly pest control solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

One common way of making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is 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 needed.
  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. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Stamford

Certain pests are more common than others. In Stamford, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps can be very hard to rid yourself of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in spots like sheds, roof overhangs, attics, and garages.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to quash, so we 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 your wallpaper.
