How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control expert, there are several things that you can consider to make sure you choose the best one for you. Important decision-making factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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 those that supervise them are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Minnesota pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. While not required, they can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a pest control company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the experience necessary to handle your specific pest problem. If you can't find the information you need online, contacting the company directly is an excellent way to learn about its areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can browse reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check the status of its license through the Minnesota licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Pest control costs can vary based on things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

When thinking about the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company provide additional treatments until the problem is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Many companies are making the switch to using more natural and greener 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 required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in St. Louis Park

In St. Louis Park, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Minnesota. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where you keep food.
