    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    It's important to choose the best pest control company for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also 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?

      According to 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 does set minimum standards of competency, but all Minnesota pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. While not required, they can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

      There are several professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Being a member of 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. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has handling pests in your area. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information is not available online, speaking with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to see what other people are saying, or verify its license standing via the Minnesota licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like the type of pest being treated, your location, and the size of your house.

      You can look into whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

      Be sure to ask your pest control provider if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to provide information about all pesticides to be used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

    • Treatment Methods

      Organizations looking to reduce their reliance on 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 whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Coon Rapids

    In Coon Rapids, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

    • Ticks: A tick infestation can be dangerous because they might bring Lyme or other diseases into your home. You might be at increased risk of these infestations if your home is close to a body of water, a forest, or an area of dense vegetation.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
    • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is stored.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Minnesota, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Coon Rapids

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

    What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

    There are several things you can do 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.

    Next, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

    When should I hire an exterminator?

    Any time you notice signs of pests in your Coon Rapids home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    Why is preventive pest control important?

    Preventive pest control is important for stopping pest problems before they start. Your local pest control technician will be familiar with the pests in your part of Coon Rapids, including how they get into homes and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can make changes and implement barriers to keep pests out of your house, saving you time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.
