How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors you can take into consideration when choosing the right pest control company for you. Factors you might consider include licensing and qualifications, treatment methods, 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?

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    There are additional optional certifications that can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a company must show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Other certifications can be obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to education and resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Joining organizations like these is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company will list information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to find out what other people are saying, or verify its license standing 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 influence the price of pest control.

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be affected by how environmentally friendly a provider's practices are, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used in your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    It is now common for companies to begin with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, following a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

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


Common Household Pests in Lynn

You might run into some pests more frequently in Lynn. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Moths: If there is a moth infestation in your home, you may start finding holes in your linens or clothing. Moths thrive in warmer weather and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Fleas: These pests prefer warmer weather and often get indoors by hiding in pet fur.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Massachusetts. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Lynn

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your home looking for shelter. They can get in through places such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving 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. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

When should I hire an exterminator?

Any time you see signs of pest activity in your Lynn 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 infestations, we recommend contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

Is pest control safe around my pets?

It's normally a good idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but generally they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep your pets out of treated areas, and for how long.
