How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things that you can consider when selecting the best pest control treatment methodfor you. You may take into consideration a company's qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Obtaining additional optional certifications can help prove that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. For this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Additional certifications can be obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

Pest control companies can also obtain membership in professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by finding out how many years it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also clue you in as to whether a certain company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can always reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to hear what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing through the Missouri licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors can all affect the price of pest control.

You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

All pesticides (except those that pose only a minimum risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should supply information on each pesticide they will be using. They should inform you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control expert will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity treatment methods before trying harsher chemicals.

Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce personal or environmental risk when treating pest infestations. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Wildwood

You might encounter some pests more frequently in Wildwood. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Termites: Termites can often enter your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, firewood, or mulch. If left uncontrolled, they can cause a substantial amount of damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Missouri, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter 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.
