How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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

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

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to get this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

    There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations in addition to national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). While not mandatory, membership in these organizations helps prove a company's reputability and gives it access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has dealing with pests in your area. You can also browse its website or peruse customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also verify the status of a company's license via the Nebraska licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should be able to supply information about the pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring cleaner and greener pest solutions that can be used before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many are following 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, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Omaha

In Omaha, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather and often are brought into the home by pets.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Nebraska and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Omaha

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your house looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some might also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also come into your house simply looking for shelter. They can get in through places like broken screens or foundation cracks.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave 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. Repair leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How often should I hire someone to do pest control?

Generally, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests around once a year, more frequently if you have an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You may think you're seeing more pests in your home in the days after pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed out of their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If pest activity hasn't started to go down in a week or two following treatment, reach out to your Omaha pest control professional to see if another treatment is required.
