    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When choosing a pest control professional, there are a number of factors that you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. You might take into consideration a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

    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 (and those who supervise them) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in the state of Florida must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

      A pest control company can also hold membership in professional organizations. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with various pests. Online reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, speaking with a representative is an easy way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check its licensure status 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. Cost can be determined by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

      You can look into whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. 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 choosing a pest control provider, you want to select one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

    • Safety

      You should ask your pest control expert if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they plan to take. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider will be able to supply information about all pesticides that they plan to use.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many pest control companies are now exploring more eco-friendly pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many are following the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

      1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Weston

    In Weston, some species of pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

    • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in spots like sheds, attics, roof overhangs, and garages. They are often difficult to exterminate, and have painful stings. Your local pest experts can help remove wasp nests from your property safely.
    • Termites: Termites frequently get into your house from nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood. If left uncontrolled, they can do a significant amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
    • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes looking for food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, cool, and damp places. While most species of snakes are harmless, most people don't want their family, their pets, or themselves to take that risk.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Florida, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
    • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
    • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Weston

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

    There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

    When should I hire a pest control professional?

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pest activity in your Weston home. This could include nests, droppings, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If your home has seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

    Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

    Your pest control professional will inform you how far pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but generally you'll be asked to keep pets away from the area during and for some time after treatment.

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

    Be sure to ask your pest technician if they need you to clean around your home. This can help them find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some providers 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 some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. You may want to also remove any plants in the area to avoid chemical contamination. Finally, if necessary, block off areas that you anticipate will be treated so that children and pets stay away until it is safe. If you're undergoing a more intensive process like fumigation, make sure you closely follow your pest professional's instructions.
