How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, there are several things you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to think about cost.

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

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

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, must be licensed via the appropriate Illinois regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. While not required, they can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

There are certain professional organizations that pest control companies can be members of. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. The NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a 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 inform you whether it has the skills and experience necessary to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors can all affect the price of pest control.

You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what type of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not resolve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide you with information on all the pesticides that they plan to use. They should inform you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

Treatment Methods

Pest control companies looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

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

Common Household Pests in Aurora

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Aurora. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs are found in most parts of Illinois. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Illinois, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
