    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When selecting a pest control company, there are several factors that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the right one for you. You might take into consideration a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as 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?

      Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Michigan must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro in order to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is awarded when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

      Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. Joining an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, as well as a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Typically, 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 contact a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore local review sites and social media to find out what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing through the Michigan licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      Certain pest control companies 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

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

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

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

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

    Common Household Pests in Flint

    Certain pests are more common than others. In Flint, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Bees: Bees around your house can be a nuisance, particularly if someone in your household is allergic. Your local pest control company can help get rid of bees; some may even be able to help safely relocate hives.
    • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests can be found in most parts of Michigan. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
    • Flies: You might see flies around sinks or in places where you keep food. Flies can get into your house in Flint throughout the year, but they're especially common during warmer months.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to quash, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Michigan, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Flint

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests come into your house looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house looking for shelter and get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your house. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

    When should I hire a pest control professional?

    When you see signs of pest activity in your Flint home—which could include nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we suggest getting in touch with a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    What should I do before a pest control technician comes to my house?

    We strongly suggest that you ask your pest professional if they want you to clean around your house. This can help ensure they can find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some technicians may want to see your home as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, clear paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as these are common places for pests to hide. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. Remove any plants in the area to avoid contamination with chemicals. Finally, if necessary, block off areas that you expect will be treated so that children and pets stay away until it is safe. If you're undergoing a more intensive process like fumigation, be sure to closely follow the instructions of your pest professional.

    Will I need to clean after pest control services?

    We recommend checking in with your pest control technician while they are at your house, as the answer can vary depending on the treatments used. After pesticide application, you might notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

    Typically, vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down certain surfaces will be appropriate after pest control. However, make sure that you don't wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After pest control, continue to keep your home clean. Don't let trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
