    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step is picking the right pest control company for the job. You may consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. 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?

      While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Florida must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to back up its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

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

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Browsing a company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try contacting the company directly.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look for reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, look up 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

      Cost is important when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected influenced by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

      Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

    • Safety

      Make sure to ask your pest control technician if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what precautionary measures they plan to take. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides that they plan to use.

    • Treatment Methods

      Organizations looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether 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 required, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Estero

    Some pests are more common than others. In Estero, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

    • Termites: If you don't promptly deal with a termite infestation, they could cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Termites often get inside via nearby piles of firewood, rotting wood, or mulch.
    • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in attics.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to quash, 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 Estero

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests come 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, through 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, either standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

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

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to 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. Third, reduce standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

    How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

    Normally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If your home has an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    What do I need to do before my pest control technician arrives at my house?

    Before your pest control technician arrives, check and see if they want you to clean around your home, including in areas where there have been pests. Some pest technicians may prefer to see your house as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, make sure all paper goods and trash are out of the affected areas (as pests can hide in these items), and that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. You may also wish to remove plants from the affected areas. Additionally, block off areas to be treated to keep children and pets out until it is safe. If your home needs more intensive pest control, such as fumigation, be sure to follow your pest professional's instructions closely.
