How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is selecting the best pest control professional for the job. Important factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

    All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate Florida regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to verify its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain training standards for employees.

    There are certain professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. 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

How long a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with the pests that live in Apopka. Online reviews or the company's own website can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience necessary to handle your specific pest problem. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is a great way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out social media and local review sites to learn what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing via the Florida licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like your location, the size of your house, and the type of pest being treated.

    You can take into consideration whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    Your pest control provider should be able to explain the safety precautions of the pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are making the switch to 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 determine if immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Apopka

You might run into some pests more often in Apopka. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Beetles: Around the U.S. and in Apopka, there are a number of species of beetles that could create problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Apopka

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

How frequently should I hire someone to do pest control?

In general, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests around once a year, more often if you have an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You might feel like you're seeing more pests in your home in the days after pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If pest activity hasn't decreased in one to two weeks following treatment, contact your Apopka pest control professional to see if more treatment is required.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Generally, pesticide application lasts about 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends 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 may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation.
