How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control expert, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure you choose the right one for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

  • Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to verify its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

    Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. Joining an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, and a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the Florida licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be influenced by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

    Many companies 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 company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control expert. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly treatment plans.

  • Safety

    Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions will be in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose above a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will start with more environmentally friendly solutions before using pesticides, using a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    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. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Jupiter

You might deal with some pests more frequently in Jupiter. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Mosquitoes: You're more likely to face a mosquito infestation if you live in a wetter area (like Jupiter). They're also more common when the weather is warmer. Mosquitoes are more than just annoying—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
  • Snakes: Snakes prefer dark, damp, and cool spots and often come into a home looking for food. While most species of snakes are harmless, this is not a risk that you and your family want to take.
  • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in spots like attics, roof overhangs, sheds, and garages. They have painful stings and are often difficult to get rid of. Your local pest control technician can help remove wasp nests from your property safely.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Jupiter

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 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 are searching 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?

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off any potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

It is typically recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If there is 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 is the importance of preventive pest control?

If there are pests in your home, you might end up spending a large amount of time and money eliminating of them, as well as possibly recovering from illness or damages they caused. Preventive pest control can stop this from happening.

Will pests come out after spraying for them?

It's normal to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control treatment. The process tends to flush pests from their hiding places, making them more visible; you might also start seeing more dead pests around your home. If this uptick in pests sightings doesn't begin to decrease after a week or two, reach out to your Jupiter pest professional. Another treatment may be required.
