How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors you can consider when choosing the right pest control expertfor you. Factors you may consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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

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 providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company displays 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 particular pest in your area. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include social media, local review sites, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check the status of a company's license via the Massachusetts licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is often a deciding factor when picking a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when selecting a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly pest control management.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will begin with more eco-friendly and lower-toxicity treatment methods before using harsher chemicals.

Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Leominster

In Leominster, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Beetles: Around the country and in Leominster, there are a number of species of beetles that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests can be found in most parts of Massachusetts. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to quash, so we recommend hiring an 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.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
