    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control company for you is key. Along with a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at 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?

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

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can also obtain optional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further verify its practices and methods.

      Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in state-level organizations as well as national organizations such as 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 professionals to compare best practices with.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    How long a company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with the pests that live in St. Louis Park. Customer reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the skills and experience necessary to handle your specific pest problem. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, contacting the company directly is an easy way to learn about its areas of expertise.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read social media and local review sites 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

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

      You can look into whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

      You want to ensure that you understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about the pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies will start with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, using a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in St. Louis Park

    Some pests are more common than others. In St. Louis Park, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Ants: Ants are common in just about every part of Minnesota. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
    • Mice: If you have mice, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in St. Louis Park

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests enter your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your house looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Also try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

    How frequently do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

    Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

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

    Before your pest control technician arrives, check and see if they want you to clean around your home, including in areas where you've seen pests. Some pest technicians may prefer to see your home as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, focus on making sure all trash and paper goods are out of the affected areas (as pests can hide in these items), and that you store food securely so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. You may also wish to remove plants from the area. Also make sure to block off areas to be treated to keep children and pets out until it is safe. If your home needs a more intensive type of pest control like fumigation, make sure you follow your pest professional's instructions closely.

    How long does exterminator spray last?

    Most pesticides last around 30 to 90 days after application. Rain can wash away outdoor chemicals, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the application method, what pests are present, and the extent of your pest problem.
