    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    There are several factors you can take into consideration when choosing the right pest control company for you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. 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?

      Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Minnesota pesticide applicators need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can receive optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to support its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

      Pest control companies can also become members of certain professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can gain some insight into a company's experience level by seeing how long it has been in operation. Local reviews and the company's own website can also tell you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. You can also confirm the status of a company's license via the Minnesota licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when picking a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that uses environmentally friendly methods.

    • Safety

      Your pest technician should use 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 used 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

      Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

      1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
      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. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Maple Grove

    You might encounter some pests more often in Maple Grove. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

    • Ticks: A tick infestation can be dangerous if they bring Lyme or other diseases into your home. You are likely at increased risk of a tick infestation if you live near a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
    • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs can be found in most areas of Minnesota. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
    • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
    • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Minnesota and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Maple Grove

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots like foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

    One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

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

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pest activity in your Maple Grove home. You might see nests, droppings, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

    Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

    Generally, it's a good idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but generally they should not be ingested by pets. Your pest control expert will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.

    How long does it take pest control to work?

    How soon you notice pest control results will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest control technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see the results almost immediately. However, for most pest control you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks to see substantial results. Some pests may require your pest professional to make multiple visits to your home.
