How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is picking the right pest control professional for the job. Some things you may consider include licensing and qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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 handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Massachusetts should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

    A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Belonging to one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by looking at how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check the status of its license through the Massachusetts licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors can all affect the cost of pest control.

    You can learn whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what type of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    You can ask your pest control provider if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask about what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to provide information about all of the pesticides to be used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are 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 problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Brockton

Some pests are more common than others. In Brockton, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being annoying, a mosquito infestation can result in itchy bites and possibly even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates (like Brockton) and at warmer times of the year.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of Massachusetts. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to eliminate, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Massachusetts, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Brockton

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests might seek out and eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

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

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

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

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

Any time you see signs of pest activity in your Brockton home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we suggest reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Do I need to worry about my pets during pest control visits?

Your pest control company will let you know how far your pets should be kept away from treated areas, and for how long. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule you'll be asked to keep pets away from the area during and for some time after treatment.

How long does pest control last?

The majority of pesticides last around 30 to 90 days after application. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation. Other factors that affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the application method, what pests are being targeted, and the extent of your pest problem.
