This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Hiring the best company for you is the most important step in the pest control process. Important factors include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Florida must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up its practices and methods.

    Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to education, resources, and a network of other pest experts with whom to compare methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest company's level of pest management experience by seeing how many years it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether a certain company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can contact a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

    Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine 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

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control expert, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly pest control solutions.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many pest control companies have begun using more natural and greener treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some use a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest control management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in St. Cloud

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

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found throughout Florida, though they prefer wetter areas. This can make them an even bigger problem in St. Cloud. Cockroaches might enter your home through small cracks, and they can spread diseases like salmonella.
  • Flies: Flies can be a nuisance in your St. Cloud home year-round, but they are especially common in warmer weather. Flies might be found around sinks or in areas where you keep food.
  • Ticks: If you live near forests or areas with dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you might be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread diseases like Lyme to you and your pets.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Florida, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other moist, dark areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in St. Cloud

What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

How can I 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. Also try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How frequently should I hire someone to do pest control?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If your home has an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Should I clean my home after pest control services?

Whether you need to clean your home following pest control services will depend on what treatments are used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician before they leave. In many cases, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell following the application of some pesticides.

Following pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to discourage pests from returning.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You may feel as though you're seeing a greater number of pests in your home in the days following pest control treatment. This is because living pests are being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests around. If the amount of pest activity hasn't begun to decrease in one to two weeks following treatment, get in touch with your St. Cloud pest control professional to see if another treatment is required.
