How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the right pest control treatment planfor you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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 need to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all Michigan pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can optionally apply for additional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, in addition to a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining organizations like these is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company will list information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

Resources that can be used to verify a company's legitimacy include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the Michigan licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Pest control costs can vary based on things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

When considering the cost of services, you should try to determine whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatment until the issue is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Ask your pest control technician if they are going to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask about what precautionary measures will be in place. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all pesticides to be used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more eco-friendly pest control management solutions before relying on harsh pesticides.

One popular way of making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Independence

Some pests are more prevalent in Independence, and these are the ones to keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being annoying, mosquito infestations can lead to itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes are most common in wetter climates and warmer weather.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Michigan and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard 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.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is stored.
