How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one 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. Last but not least, you'll likely want to consider 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 providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can optionally apply for additional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to back up its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain training standards for employees.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help to prove a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by looking into how long it has been in operation. Local reviews and the company's own website can also tell you whether a certain company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can call the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to find out what other people are saying, or verify its license standing through the Florida licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Pest control costs can vary based on things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    When considering the cost of services, you should confirm 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 consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatment until the problem is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    Your pest control expert should be able to discuss the safety of any and all pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to clarify 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 more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will begin with more environmentally friendly treatment options before employing harsh pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in North Port

Some pests are seen more commonly in North Port, and these are the ones you should keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Fleas: Fleas tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in North Port) and often get indoors by hiding in pet fur.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in North Port

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some might also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also enter your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

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

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

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

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

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

Why is preventive pest control important?

If you get pests in your home, you may find yourself spending a good deal of time and money eliminating of them, as well as potentially recovering from illness or damages they cause. Preventive pest control can stop this from happening.

Is pest control safe around pets?

Normally, it's a good idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are low or non-toxic, but generally they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.
