This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several factors that you can weigh when selecting the right pest control company for you. Things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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 Massachusetts regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the issue is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have started making the switch to using more natural treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some use 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. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Beverly

Not all pests are equally common in Beverly. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like roof overhangs, garages, sheds, and attics. They have painful stings and are often difficult to get rid of. Your local pest control technician can help remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Moths: If you are finding holes in your clothing or linens, there's a chance that you have moths in your house. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and are more common in warmer places.
  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Beverly home, but they are especially common during the warmer months. Flies might be found around sinks or in areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Massachusetts, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Beverly

What causes pest infestations?

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

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

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Next, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire an exterminator?

When you see signs of pests in your Beverly home—things like droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call your local pest professional. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend contacting a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Should I clean after pest control services?

Whether you can clean your home following pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Typically, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There may be a lingering smell following the application of some pesticides.

After pest treatment, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.

How soon can I expect to see results from pest control services?

How long pest control takes to work depends on the problem and treatment. For example, if a wasp nest is removed, you should see the results immediately. In other cases, it could take anywhere from a few days to up to six weeks for significant pest control results to be noticeable. Some pest issues may require your technician to make multiple trips to your home.
