How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control company for you is important. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will 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?

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be licensed at the state level. The EPA has established minimum competency standards, and the Minnesota regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. While not required, they can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for humans and the environment.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in certain professional organizations. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by finding out how many years it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether a certain company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can contact a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can verify a company's legitimacy using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Minnesota's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can think about whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. 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 preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment might affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides being used around your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should supply information about the pesticides they plan on using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have started offering options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before moving to harsh pesticides.

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

    1. Identify problem pests and determine 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 absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Maplewood

Not all pests are equally pervasive in 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.
  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Maplewood home, but they tend to be more common in warmer weather. You may spot flies around sinks or in places where food is kept.
  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being annoying, mosquito infestations can result in itchy bites and possibly even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes are most common in wetter climates and in warmer months.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to quash, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Minnesota, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Maplewood

What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How often do I need to hire a pest control professional?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If your home has an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do I need to worry about my pets during or after pest control?

Normally, it's a smart idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are low or non-toxic, but as a general rule they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control expert will tell you how far to keep your pets out of treated areas, and for how long.

What do I need to do before a pest control technician comes to my house?

It's recommended that you ask your pest technician if they need you to clean around your home. This can help ensure they can find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some providers may want to see your house as-is.

If you are asked to clean, focus on getting paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. Remove any plants in the area to avoid chemical contamination. Lastly, if necessary, block off anticipated treatment areas so that pets and children stay away until it is safe. If you're undergoing a more intensive process like fumigation, be sure to closely follow your pest professional's instructions.
