How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the right one to meet your needs. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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

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

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Minnesota should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations as well as national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at a pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in eliminating. Local reviews can also provide some insight into a company's experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't find this information online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to hear what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing through the Minnesota licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected by your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

Companies will often offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that employes eco-friendly practices.

Safety

You can ask your pest control technician if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask what precautionary measures will be in place. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should supply information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Many pest control companies are now exploring more eco-friendly pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many are following the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Maplewood

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

  • Cockroaches: It's important to quickly stop a cockroach infestation, as they can carry diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches are found throughout Minnesota, and they prefer wetter areas.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and moist places and are often found in basements or attics.
