How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to find the best one for you. 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 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?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensure is regulated at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in Georgia need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

Pest control companies can also be members of certain professional organizations. Membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to resources and education, as well as a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Joining one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has taking care of various pests in Valdosta. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, contacting a representative directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to learn what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing via the Georgia licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates at the beginning of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment can influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides used in your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information about any pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and environmentally friendly treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control treatment methods as needed.

Common Household Pests in Valdosta

Not all pests are equally prevalent in Valdosta. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Georgia. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Fleas: These pests tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Valdosta) and often get into your home by hiding in pet fur.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Georgia and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
