How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is hiring the best pest control professional for the job. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum standards of competency, and the Georgia regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control experts can also hold membership in professional organizations. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, in addition to a professional network to compare best practices with. Belonging to organizations like these is not mandatory, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can verify a company's legitimacy using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Georgia's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is often a deciding factor when picking a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when selecting a pest control company. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly treatment plans.

Safety

All pesticides that will be used (except those that pose only a minimum risk) need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should provide you with information on each pesticide they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your technician will begin with more natural and lower-toxicity treatment methods before employing harsher chemicals.

Many companies have begun to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Tucker

Some pests are more common than others. In Tucker, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Moths: If your house has moths, you might notice holes in your clothing or linens. Moths do best in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Tucker) and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of Georgia. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Wasps: In many cases, wasps are hard to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They are commonly found in areas like sheds, roof overhangs, attics, and garages.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Georgia, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
