How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is hiring the right pest control company for the job. Along with a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at 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, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate Maryland regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

    A pest control company can also hold membership in certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to resources and education, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Membership in one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also browse its website or peruse customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information can't be found online, contacting a representative directly is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is an important consideration when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

    Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when picking a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that employs environmentally friendly practices.

  • Safety

    Your pest control technician should be able to explain the safety precautions of any pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to clarify 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 your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose above a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    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. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Glen Burnie

In Glen Burnie, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most areas of Maryland. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Maryland, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Glen Burnie

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also come into your house simply looking for shelter. They can get in through places like foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Glen Burnie home. You might see droppings, nests, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If your home has recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

It's common to feel like you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control treatment. Pest control tends to flush pests out of their hiding places, making them more visible; you may also find more dead pests around your house. If this uptick in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after one to two weeks, reach out to your Glen Burnie pest professional. Another treatment may be necessary.
