How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Things you may consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, and the Illinois regulatory agencies take care of the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Obtaining additional optional certifications can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain 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 obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

There are several professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. While not required, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. After joining an organization like the NPMA, a company receives access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest company's experience level by looking into how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also let you know whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the most important factors when hiring for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like the size of your house, your location, and the type of pest being treated.

You can look into whether a particular 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

Safety is an important consideration when selecting a pest control company. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

Safety

You will want to understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be able to supply information about all pesticides they plan on using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before jumping into using harsh pesticides.

One popular way of making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, 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 provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Schaumburg

In Schaumburg, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests are found in most areas of Illinois. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Termites: Termites often come into your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, mulch, or firewood. If left untreated, they can do a substantial amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Illinois and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
