    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    It's important to choose the best pest control treatment methodfor you. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you 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?

      While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Indiana must be licensed by all the necessary 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 that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

      A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. While not required, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Looking at how long a pest control company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has taking care of pests in your area. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the type of pests you are looking to get rid of. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a good way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      Many companies offer free on-site estimates as part 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 it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Safety is an important consideration when selecting a pest control company, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly pest control services.

    • Safety

      Your pest technician should use pesticides that are low toxicity or non-toxic when possible. If any pesticides used don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      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 determine whether 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 with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Greenwood

    Some pests are more common than others. In Greenwood, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

    • Bees: Your local pest expert can help get rid of bees around your house (and some companies even have resources to safely relocate hives). You may be particularly keen to have bees' nests removed if there is someone in your household who is allergic.
    • Moths: If you've been noticing holes in your linens or clothing, it's possible that you have moths in your house. Moths like dark places like closets, and are more common in warmer places.
    • Wasps: Wasps can be very difficult to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid being stung. They can often be found in spots like roof overhangs, attics, sheds, and garages.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Indiana, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Greenwood

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also come into your home looking for shelter. They can get in through places such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

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

    When should I hire a pest control professional?

    Any time you notice signs of pest activity in your Greenwood home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    Is pest control safe around my pets?

    Your pest control company will inform you how far your pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after application.

    What do I need to do before pest control services?

    Before a pest professional comes to your home, check and see if they want you to clean around your home, including in areas where you've seen pests. Some pest professionals may prefer to see your house as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, make sure all paper goods and trash are out of the affected areas (as pests can hide in these items), and that you store food securely so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. It's also a good idea to remove plants from the affected areas. Additionally, block off areas to be treated so that children and pets stay out until it is safe. If you need more intensive pest control, such as fumigation, make sure you follow your pest professional's instructions closely.
