How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the best one for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also 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?

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Florida need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

    There are certain professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help verify a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by looking at how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether a company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can always call the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Florida licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    When considering the cost of services, you should verify whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the problem is satisfactorily handled?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that employs environmentally 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 provider should be able to supply information on every pesticide they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are making the switch to using more natural treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some follow a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

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


Common Household Pests in Deerfield Beach

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

  • Snakes: Snakes prefer cool, damp, and dark spots and often come into a home in search of food. Most species of snakes are harmless, but this is not a risk that you and your family want to take.
  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests are found in most of Florida. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Termites: Termites frequently get into your home from nearby piles of mulch, rotting wood, or firewood. If not stopped, they can cause significant damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Florida, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Deerfield Beach

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from 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 potential entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Also try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Third, eliminate standing water in and around your house. Work to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

Any time you notice signs of pest activity in your Deerfield Beach home—such as droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. 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.

Is pest control safe around pets?

It's usually a good idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control expert will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.
