How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Factors you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we dive into detail on 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, need to be licensed via the appropriate Florida regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • 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 environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

    There are several professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company will list information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore local review sites and social media to see what other people are saying, or verify its license standing 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, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    When thinking about the cost of services, you should try to determine whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatment until the issue is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that uses eco-friendly treatment methods.

  • Safety

    Your pest control expert should be able to discuss the safety of the pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to answer questions about whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. Any pesticides that pose above a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have started offering options for more environmentally friendly methods of pest control before employing harsh pesticides.

    One popular way of making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in Fountainebleau

Not all pests are equally prevalent in Fountainebleau. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like sheds, attics, roof overhangs, and garages. They are often difficult to eliminate, and have painful stings. Your local pest experts can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Moths: If you've been finding holes in your linens or clothing, you may have moths in your home. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places (like Fountainebleau).
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other dark, damp areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Fountainebleau

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your house 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 drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

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

Next, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

When you notice signs of pest activity in your Fountainebleau home—things like droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to your local pest professional. If you've had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

What should I do before a pest control technician comes to my house?

Make sure to ask your pest professional if they want you to clean around your home. This can help them find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some providers may want to see your house as-is.

If you are asked to clean, focus on getting paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. Also remove any plants in the area to avoid chemical contamination. Lastly, if needed, block off areas that you anticipate will be treated so that children and pets do not enter until it is safe. If a more intensive process like fumigation is required, make sure you closely follow the instructions of your pest professional.
