How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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 sets minimum standards of competency, but all Michigan pesticide applicators should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Obtaining additional optional certifications can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. For this certification, a company must show that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Additional certifications can be earned through trade organizations like QualityPro.

Pest control companies can also be members of certain professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in eliminating. Online reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, explore reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via 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, the size of your house, your location, 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 inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the problem is satisfactorily resolved?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be influenced by how eco-friendly a company's practicesare, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

Your pest control provider should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions will be in place to protect you, your family, and your pets. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly methods of pest control before relying on harsh pesticides.

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

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Troy

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

  • Mosquitoes: A mosquito infestation is more likely if you live in a wetter area. They're also more common during the warmer months. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance—they can cause itchy bites and even carry diseases.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Michigan, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
