How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to find the right one to meet your needs. You may consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we explore the details of each factor.

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 application, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Georgia should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

There are additional optional certifications that can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. For this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Additional certifications can be earned through trade organizations like QualityPro.

A pest control company can also obtain membership in professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a pest control company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also browse its website or read customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatments until the issue is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly pest control solutions.

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used in your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control technician should supply information about the pesticides they plan on 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

Many pest control companies have started making the switch to using more natural and eco-friendly 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 the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control treatment methods as needed.

Common Household Pests in Augusta

You might run into some pests more frequently in Augusta. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Termites: Termites can often enter your house from nearby piles of mulch, rotting wood, or firewood. If not taken care of, they can cause a significant amount of damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Flies: Flies can be a nuisance in your Augusta home year-round, but they are especially common when the weather is warmer. Flies might be found around sinks or in places where food is kept.
  • Wasps: Wasps can be very difficult to get rid of, especially when you're trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in areas like sheds, attics, garages, and roof overhangs.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Georgia and can lead to major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.
