How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors you can weigh when selecting the right pest control companyfor you. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might 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 dive into detail on 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 application, licensing is taken care of 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?

An optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To receive this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If this information isn't available online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's reputation using social media or local review sites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Florida's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the problem is satisfactorily handled?

Safety and Treatment Methods

When choosing a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

Make sure to ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they are going to use. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply you with information about all chemicals they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will start with lower-toxicity, more natural treatment methods before trying harsher chemicals.

Many companies are using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce personal or environmental risk when treating pest infestations. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  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 if needed, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Sanford

Certain pests are more common than others. In Sanford, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Termites: Termites can often enter your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, mulch, or firewood. If not taken care of, they can do significant damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
