How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is hiring the best pest control professional for the job. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. 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?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the Iowa regulatory agencies take care of the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

There are certain professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in business and what kind of pests it specializes in eliminating. Online reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If this information isn't available online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), local review sites, and social media. Additionally, you can verify the status of a company's license through the Iowa licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should verify whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the issue is satisfactorily handled?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when picking a pest control provider. You might also prefer one that provides eco-friendly treatment plans.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Companies often begin with more eco-friendly solutions before employing pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Marion

Some pests are more common than others. In Marion, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles around the U.S. and in Iowa. Many types are harmless, but some can feed on and do damage to things like your carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Iowa and can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
