    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When picking a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the right one for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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

    • 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) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in Nevada must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

      There are several professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer added peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Typically, a company will list information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, view a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check the status of its license through the Nevada licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      Often, companies will 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 a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your choice of pest control provider might be affected by how eco-friendly a company's practicesare, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

    • Safety

      Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of the pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Pest control experts looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

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

    Common Household Pests in Reno

    Not all pests are equally prevalent around Reno. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

    • Flies: You might spot flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept. Flies might get into your Reno home year-round, but they're even more common during warmer months.
    • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like attics, sheds, garages, and roof overhangs. They are often difficult to eliminate, and have painful stings. Your local pest professional can help remove wasps from your property safely.
    • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches throughout Nevada, though they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches might get into your house through small cracks, and some can spread diseases like salmonella.
    • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in places where you keep food.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Nevada, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Reno

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests enter your home looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house looking for shelter and get in through places like broken screens or foundation cracks.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving food out 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 can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

    When should I hire a pest control professional?

    Any time you see signs of pests in your Reno home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we recommend contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

    Is pest control safe around pets?

    It's usually a smart idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are low or non-toxic, but generally they should not be ingested by pets. Your pest control expert will tell you how far to keep your pets out of treated areas, and for how long.
