    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step is picking the right pest control professional for the job. You may consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

    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 (and those that supervise them) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of Florida should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

      Pest control companies can also become members of professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, reaching out to the company directly is an excellent way to learn more.

    • 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 Florida's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      For many people, cost is one of the most important factors when hiring for pest control services. Cost can be affected by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

      You can think about whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. 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 provider might be influenced by how eco-friendly a provider's practicesare, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • 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 provider should be capable of providing information about any pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your pest control provider will begin with more natural and lower-toxicity treatment methods before moving on to harsher chemicals.

      Many companies have started to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Boca Raton

    Not all pests are equally common around Boca Raton. Some species that you should be on the lookout for are these:

    • Ants: Ants are common in basically all of Florida. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your house.
    • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.
    • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in attics.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Florida, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Boca Raton

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home simply looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

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

    How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you identify signs of pests in your Boca Raton home. This can include seeing nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

    Will I need to clean my house after pest control services?

    Whether you can clean your home following pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Generally, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

    Following pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to discourage pests from returning.

    How soon will I see results from pest control?

    How long pest control takes to work depends on the issue and treatment. For example, if your technician removes a wasp nest, you should see the results immediately. In other cases, it might take anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant pest control results to be noticeable. Some pest infestations may require your technician to make multiple trips to your house.
