    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    There are a number of things you can weigh when selecting the right pest control company for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

    Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

      The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Florida need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

      There are various professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. While not mandatory, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    A company's website can tell you how many years it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If you can't find this information online, you can try contacting the company directly.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look for reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Florida licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      The cost of pest control can vary based on things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

      When considering the cost of services, you should try to determine whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or if it returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the issue is satisfactorily handled?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that uses environmentally friendly methods.

    • Safety

      Be sure to ask your pest control technician if they are going to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all of the pesticides to be used, 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 problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Coconut Creek

    You might deal with some pests more frequently in Coconut Creek. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

    • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most of Florida. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
    • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer damp, dark, and cool areas. Although most species of snakes are harmless, most people don't want their family, their pets, or themselves to take that risk.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Coconut Creek

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

    There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Next, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

    Any time you see signs of pests in your Coconut Creek home—which could include nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

    What is the importance of preventive pest control?

    Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they start. Local pest control companies know about the pests that live in your part of Coconut Creek, including how they make their way into your home and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can recommend changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your house, which can save time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.

    Will pests come out after spraying for them?

    You may feel like you're seeing more pests in your home in the days following pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be finding more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't started to go down in a week or two following treatment, reach out to your Coconut Creek pest professional to see if another treatment is required.
