How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the best pest control professionalfor you. Important decision-making factors include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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?

All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in Nevada should be licensed via the necessary 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 more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. A pest control company can join state-level organizations as well as national organizations such as 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 professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a pest control company's level of pest management experience by looking at how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also inform you whether the company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up 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 Nevada licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

Many companies offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control expert. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly pest control management.

Safety

You will want to understand the precautions for the pesticides being used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should supply information about the 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 companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly treatment methods before jumping into using harsh pesticides.

One popular method for making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests 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 absolutely necessary, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Carson City

Not all pests are equally common in Carson City. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Snakes: Snakes often enter houses in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer damp, dark, and cool places. Although the majority of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs can be found in most parts of Nevada. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Nevada, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where food is stored.
