How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you may also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

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

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 those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA has established minimum competency standards, and the Florida regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further verify its practices and methods.

Pest control companies can also be members of various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help to prove a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, 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

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when picking a company for pest control services. Cost can be affected by factors like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and your location.

You can consider whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. 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 affected by how environmentally friendly a provider's pest control servicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

All pesticides used by your company (except those that pose only a minimum risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should supply information on all the pesticides that they will be using. They should inform you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest technician will begin with lower-toxicity, more natural methods before moving on to harsher chemicals.

Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Homestead

Some pests are more prevalent in Homestead, and these pests are the ones you should keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Bees: Your local pest expert can help eliminate bee infestations around your house (some even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be particularly keen to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household has an allergy.
  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being annoying, a mosquito infestation can lead to itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates (like Homestead) and in warmer months.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Florida, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are tricky to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
