How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the best one to meet your needs. 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 discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of Iowa must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable.

There are various professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer added peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in eliminating. Local reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If this information isn't available online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the Iowa licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

Many companies offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, 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 choice of pest control provider might be affected by how eco-friendly a company's pest control servicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Many pest control companies have started making the switch to using more natural and eco-friendly treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some follow a program called 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 required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Davenport

In Davenport, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Flies: You may see flies around sinks or in places where you keep food. Flies can get into your Davenport home year-round, but they're even more common in warmer weather.
  • Snakes: Snakes prefer damp, cool, and dark areas like basements and often enter a home in search of food. While most species of snakes are harmless, this is not a risk that you and your family want to take.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Iowa, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
