How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to find the best one for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Massachusetts must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

    A pest control company can also be a member of certain professional organizations. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. NPMA membership gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by looking at how many years it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also tell you whether a company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    You should ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what precautionary measures they are going to use. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to supply you with information about all pesticides that they are going to use.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have started offering options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before relying on harsh pesticides.

    One popular method for making pest control safer and greener is 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 absolutely necessary, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Everett

Not all pests are equally common around Everett. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like sheds, roof overhangs, garages, and attics. They are often difficult to rid yourself of, and have painful stings. Your local pest control company can remove wasp nests from your property safely.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Massachusetts and can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Everett

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your home simply looking for shelter and get in through places like foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Next, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors 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?

When you see signs of pests in your Everett home—such as droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. If you've 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 the pest control process?

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

Should I clean my home after pest control services?

We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are in your home, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticide application, you may notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

In many cases, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After the pests are taken care of, continue to keep your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
