How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. You may consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

Below, we dive into detail on 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 standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Georgia should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its practices and methods.

    There are several professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Georgia licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can think about whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in 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 one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is environmentally-conscious.

  • Safety

    You can ask your pest control technician if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask about what precautionary measures will be in place. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should be able to provide information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many are following the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
    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 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 Milton

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

  • Fleas: Fleas prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Milton) and often get into your house by hiding in pet fur.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Georgia, and they can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is kept or in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Milton

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

How often should I hire someone to do pest control?

Typically, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests about once annually, more often if there is an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do I need to clean my house after pest control services?

Whether you need to clean your home after pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician while they are at your home. In many cases, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

After pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.
