How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is hiring the best pest control professional for the job. In addition to a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, you'll likely want to consider the cost of services.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is given once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up its practices and methods.

Pest control professionals can also obtain membership in professional organizations. A pest control company can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a pest company's level of experience by looking into how long it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also inform you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can always contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the Massachusetts 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, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

Companies will often offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, 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 company might be influenced by how eco-friendly a provider's pest control servicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

Your pest control expert should be using pesticides that are low toxicity or non-toxic when possible. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many pest control companies have started making the switch to using more natural and environmentally friendly treatment methods before (or in place of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some utilize 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 mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control services as needed.

Common Household Pests in Billerica

Certain pests are more prevalent in Billerica, and these are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of Massachusetts. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Snakes: Snakes often enter houses in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer damp, cool, and dark spots like basements. Although the majority of snakes are harmless, most people don't want their family, their pets, or themselves to take that risk.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Massachusetts and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
