How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the right pest control solutionfor you. 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 discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Florida should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

Pest control professionals can also hold membership in professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. The NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the type of pests you are looking to get rid of. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

You can take into consideration whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

Safety

Ask your pest control expert if they are going to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should supply information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

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

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether 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. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in The Hammocks

Not all pests are equally prevalent around The Hammocks. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often hard to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid being stung. They can often be found in places like roof overhangs, garages, attics, and sheds.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Florida, and they can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in attics.
