How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several factors that you can consider when choosing the best pest control treatment methodfor you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

    Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, and the Massachusetts regulatory agencies take care of the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • 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 eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable.

    Pest control professionals can also belong to professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has handling common pests in Chicopee. You can also browse its website or read customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are dealing with. If you cannot find this information online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what kind of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be influenced by how eco-friendly a company's pest control management solutionsare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

  • Safety

    All pesticides used by your company (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should provide information on each pesticide they plan to use. They should inform you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

  • Treatment Methods

    Pest professionals looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

    1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Chicopee

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

  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather and are frequently brought inside by pets.
  • Moths: If you're noticing holes in your linens or clothing, there's a chance that you have moths in your house. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and are more commonly found in warmer places.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Massachusetts, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Chicopee

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests come into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of steps you can take 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, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

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

It is typically recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If there is an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

What is the importance of preventive pest control?

Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they start. Local pest control companies understand the behaviors of pests in your part of Chicopee, including how they get into homes and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can make changes and implement barriers to keep pests out of your house, which can save time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.

Do I need to clean my home after pest control services?

Whether you can clean your home after pest control services will depend on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician while they are at your home. Generally, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. You may notice a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

Following pest treatment, it is important to maintain a clean home to avoid encouraging pests to return.
