    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    There are several factors you can take into consideration when selecting the right pest control treatmentfor you. Things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

    Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

      Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be licensed at the state level. The EPA has established minimum standards of competency, and the Montana regulatory agencies take care of the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more eco-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 QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support its methods and practices.

      Pest control companies can also be members of various professional organizations. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations in addition to national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    How long a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. If you cannot find the answers to your questions online, speaking with a representative is an excellent way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look at a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out social media and local review sites to hear what other people are saying, or verify its license standing through the Montana licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      The cost of pest control can vary based on things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

      When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also take into account what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or if it returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the problem is satisfactorily handled?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that uses environmentally friendly methods.

    • Safety

      All pesticides used by your company (except those that pose only a minimum risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider 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

      It is now common for companies to begin with more eco-friendly treatment options before employing pesticides, following a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

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

    Common Household Pests in Butte

    You might run into some pests more frequently in Butte. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

    • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in spots like attics, sheds, garages, and roof overhangs. They have painful stings and are often difficult to eliminate. Your local pest control company can help remove wasp nests from your property safely.
    • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.
    • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Butte

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

    What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

    There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off any potential pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

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

    When you notice signs of pest activity in your Butte home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should call your local pest professional. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

    How soon will I see results from pest control services?

    How long pest control takes to work depends on the issue and treatment. For example, if a wasp nest is removed, you should see the results immediately. In other cases, it may take anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks to see significant results from pest control. Some pest issues may require your technician to make multiple trips to your house.
