How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors that you can weigh when selecting the best pest control expertfor you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, you'll likely want to consider the cost of services.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These certifications can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

There are certain professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company provides information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

Companies will often offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can affect the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Your pest control provider should use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If any pesticides used don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Companies looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Shakopee

You might encounter some pests more frequently in Shakopee. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Ticks: If you live near forests or areas of dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you may be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you and your pets.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
