How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control professional, there are a number of things that you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we explore the details of each factor.

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

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Michigan should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. Holding membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company displays information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Michigan licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

When considering the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company provides 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 problem is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment may influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used in your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control technician should be able to provide 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) must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly pest control management solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

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

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Midland

Not all pests are equally common around Midland. Some species that you should keep an eye out for are these:

  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather and often get into your home by hiding in pet fur.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often hard to rid yourself of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in spots like attics, garages, roof overhangs, and sheds.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Michigan, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in places where food is kept.
