    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. A company's qualifications and treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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

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

      While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Kentucky must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Obtaining additional optional certifications can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Additional certifications can be obtained through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

      Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Browsing a company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what kind of pests it specializes in exterminating. 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 contacting the company directly.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • 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 includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or if it returns, does the company provide additional treatments until the problem is handled satisfactorily?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment might influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

    • Safety

      Your pest control technician should be able to discuss the safety of any 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 they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before (or instead 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
      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 when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Bowling Green

    Certain pests are more common than others. In Bowling Green, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Termites: Termites often come into your house from nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood. If left untreated, they can cause significant damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your house.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Kentucky and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Bowling Green

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests come into your home 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 attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How frequently do I need to hire a pest control professional?

    Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    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 house, including in areas where there have been pests. Some pest professionals may prefer to see your home as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, make sure all trash and paper goods are out of the affected areas (as pests like to hide in these items), and that food is stored away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. You may also wish to remove plants from the area. 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.
