How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors you can consider when selecting the right pest control company for you. Important decision-making factors can include a 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, should 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 licensure is handled at the state level.

  • 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 employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also obtain membership in professional organizations. Companies can be members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control companies. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Browsing a company's website can tell you how many years it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in eliminating. Online reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't find this information online, you can try calling the company directly.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • 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 determined by factors like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and your location.

    You can consider whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control provider 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 discuss the safety of all pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to clarify whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest solutions that can be used before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    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. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Egypt Lake-Leto

You might encounter some pests more often in Egypt Lake-Leto. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Mosquitoes: On top of being a nuisance, mosquito infestations can result in itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates (like Egypt Lake-Leto) and in warmer months.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you might start noticing droppings 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 Egypt Lake-Leto

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house 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 broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of things you can do 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.

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you see signs of pest activity in your Egypt Lake-Leto home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we suggest reaching out to a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

How long does pest control last?

Typically, pesticide application lasts approximately 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends on what chemicals are used, which pests are being targeted, how many pests are in your area, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation.
