    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control company, there are a number of things you can consider to be sure you choose the right one for you. A company's qualifications and treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you also want to consider cost.

    Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

      All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of Michigan must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These certifications can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

      Pest control companies can also hold membership in professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    How long a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. If you can't find the information you need online, reaching out to the company directly is an easy way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can check a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, explore reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the Michigan licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors can all influence the cost of pest control.

      You can find out whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

      Pest professionals looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
      4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Westland

    Not all pests are equally pervasive in Westland. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

    • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs can be found in most areas of Michigan. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to eliminate, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Michigan, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
    • Mice: If you have mice, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is kept or in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Westland

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pests come into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

    What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

    There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Lastly, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

    How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

    Any time you see signs of pest activity in your Westland home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to your local pest professional. If you've had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    How long does exterminator spray last?

    Most pesticides last approximately 30 to 90 days after application. Rain can wash away outdoor chemicals, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the method of applying them, what pests are present, and the extent of your pest problem.
