How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control solution for you is key. You might consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all Massachusetts pesticide applicators need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to support its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has handling various pests in Quincy. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the species of pests you are dealing with. If this information can't be found online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, view 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

Cost is an important consideration when choosing 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.

Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you decide if it fits into your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Your pest control technician should be able to explain the safety precautions of any pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many pest control companies are now exploring more eco-friendly pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, 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 Quincy

In Quincy, certain pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs can be found in most areas of Massachusetts. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Massachusetts, and they can cause major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
