How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things you can weigh when selecting the right pest control professionalfor you. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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

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

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Missouri must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can receive optional 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 awarded when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain employee training standards.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a pest control company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's own website can also inform you whether it has the skills and experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, contacting the company directly is an excellent way to learn about its areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is an important consideration when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you determine if it fits into your budget. You can also see if it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

Safety

Your pest control technician should be able to discuss the safety of any pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions will be used to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

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

Common Household Pests in Lee's Summit

Some pests are seen more commonly in Lee's Summit, and these are the ones to keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Termites: If you don't promptly deal with a termite infestation, they could cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Often, termites get into your house via nearby piles of mulch, rotting wood, or firewood.
  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Missouri. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Missouri, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
