      How To Choose a Pest Control Company

      The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Important decision-making factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

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

      • 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 those that supervise them are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Indiana pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

      • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

        An optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to earn this certification, a pest control company needs to both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

        Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Companies can be members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

      Professional Experience and Specialties

      The amount of time that a pest control company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with the pests that live in Jeffersonville. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience necessary to handle your specific pest problem. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, contacting the company directly is an excellent way to learn about its areas of expertise.

      • Reviews and Recommendations

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

      • Cost of Services and Guarantees

        Pest control costs can vary based on things like the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

        When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the problem is resolved satisfactorily?

      Safety and Treatment Methods

      When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

      • Safety

        Your pest control provider should be able to explain the safety precautions of the pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. Pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

      • Treatment Methods

        Many companies have started making the switch to using more natural and greener treatment methods before, or instead of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some utilize a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). 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. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
        5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control treatments as needed.

      Common Household Pests in Jeffersonville

      Not all pests are equally common around Jeffersonville. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

      • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles around the U.S. and in Indiana. Many are harmless, but some may eat and do damage to things like carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
      • Ticks: A tick infestation can be dangerous because they might bring diseases like Lyme into your home. You may be at increased risk of these infestations if you live close to a body of water, a forest, or an area of dense vegetation.
      • Moths: If your house has moths, you may start finding holes in your clothing or linens. Moths do best in warmer weather and enjoy dark places like closets.
      • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
      • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Indiana, and they can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
      • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

      Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Jeffersonville

      What are some causes of pest infestations?

      Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

      What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

      One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, eliminate standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

      How frequently do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

      Generally, it's recommended that you have your house treated for pests about once annually, more frequently if there is an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

      Is pest control safe around pets?

      It's typically a good idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but generally they should not be ingested by pets. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.

      Will I need to clean my house after pest control services?

      Whether you need to clean your home following pest control services will depend on what treatments are used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Typically, you will be able to dust, vacuum, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. You might notice a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

      After pest treatment, it is important to maintain a clean home to discourage pests from returning.
