How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control solution for you is key. 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 are like. Last but not least, 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 are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Missouri must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

    A pest control company can also be a member of certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining organizations like these is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's experience level by looking at how many years it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also inform you whether a company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is often a deciding factor 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.

    Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used in your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information about all pesticides they will be 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 pest control companies have started making the switch to using more natural and eco-friendly treatment methods before, or in place 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. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest control management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control services as needed.

Common Household Pests in St. Peters

Not all pests are equally common around St. Peters. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Fleas: Fleas normally prefer warmer weather and can often be brought in by pets.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Missouri, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in St. Peters

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also come into your house simply looking for shelter. They can get in through places such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pest activity in your St. Peters home. This could include droppings, nests, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If you get recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

How soon will I see results from pest control?

How soon you see pest control results will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician takes measures like removing a wasp nest, you will see results almost immediately. However, for most pest control you might need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for substantial results. Some pest problems might require your technician to make multiple trips to your home.
