    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When hiring a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one for you. You may consider a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

    Below, we discuss each factor in more detail.

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

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

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has proven that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up its practices and methods.

      A pest control company can also belong to professional organizations. Being a member of organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can gain some insight into a company's experience level by looking into how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • 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 sort 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 company might be affected by how environmentally friendly a company's practices are, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

      All pesticides that will be used (except those that pose only a minimum risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should provide information on every pesticide they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some use a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

      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 physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
      4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Plymouth

    You might encounter some pests more frequently in Plymouth. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

    • Ticks: A tick infestation can be dangerous because they might bring diseases like Lyme into your home. You are likely at increased risk of a tick infestation if you live close to a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.
    • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where you keep food.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to quash, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Minnesota, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Plymouth

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

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

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

    Next, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

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

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you notice signs of pests in your Plymouth home. This can include seeing 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 pest control visits?

    Your pest control company will tell you how far pets should be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, but in the vast majority of cases you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after application.

    How long does it take for pest control to work?

    How long it takes pest control to work depends on the problem and treatment. For example, if your technician removes a wasp nest, the problem should be resolved immediately. In other cases, it might take anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant results from pest control to become apparent. Some pest issues may require your technician to make multiple trips to your house.
