How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to find the right one to meet your needs. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to think about 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 (and those that supervise them) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in Florida must be licensed via 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 given to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

    Pest control companies can also belong to various professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of 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 experts with whom to compare methods. This can offer extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Florida licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors can all influence the cost of pest control.

    You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    You want to ensure that you understand the precautions around pesticides used in your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should be capable of providing information about all pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest solutions that can be used before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many are following the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
    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. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Palm Beach Gardens

Some pests are more common than others. In Palm Beach Gardens, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of Florida. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Termites: Termites often come into your house from nearby piles of rotting wood, firewood, or mulch. If left untreated, they can cause a substantial amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Mosquitoes: Mosquito infestations are more common if your home is in a wetter area (like Palm Beach Gardens). They're also more common during the warmer months. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance—they can cause itchy bites and even carry diseases.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, 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: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Palm Beach Gardens

What causes pest infestations?

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

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, eliminate standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

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

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

We strongly suggest that you 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 technicians may want to see your home as-is.

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