    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the right one for you. In addition to 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 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?

      According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the Mississippi regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can optionally apply for certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to back up its methods and standards. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain employee training standards.

      Pest control companies can also be members of certain professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest experts with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has dealing with various pests. You can also explore its website or read customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are dealing with. If this information can't be found online, getting in touch with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look for reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check its licensure status through the Mississippi licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      Often, companies will 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 a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your choice of pest control company might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a provider's pest control management solutionsare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

      Your pest control expert should be able to discuss the safety of any and all pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to answer questions about whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they plan to use to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your pest control expert will start with lower-toxicity, more natural methods before moving on to harsher chemicals.

      Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the 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, mechanical, and physical controls.
      4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Olive Branch

    Some pests are more common than others. In Olive Branch, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Snakes: Snakes often enter houses in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, cool, and damp places. Although most species of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Mississippi, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
    • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Olive Branch

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

    Next, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

    When should I hire an exterminator?

    When you notice signs of pest activity in your Olive Branch home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    Will pests come out after spraying for them?

    It's not uncommon to feel like you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control. Pest control tends to flush pests out of their hiding spaces, which makes them more visible; you may also start seeing more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after a week or two, contact your Olive Branch pest professional. Another treatment may be required.

    How soon will I see results from pest control?

    How soon you notice pest control results will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest control technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see results almost immediately. However, for most pest control you will likely need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks to see substantial results. Some pests might require your pest professional to make multiple trips to your home.
