    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When hiring a pest control company, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. A company's qualifications and treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you also want to think about cost.

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

    • 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 are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Nevada pesticide applicators should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

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

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    In general, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

    • 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). Additionally, you can verify the status of a company's license through the Nevada licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not resolve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

    • Safety

      Your pest control provider should use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If they plan to use pesticides that don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies are now trialing options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before employing harsh pesticides.

      One popular way of making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

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

    Common Household Pests in Sparks

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

    • Moths: If you're finding holes in your clothing or linens, you may have moths in your house. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and are more common in warmer places.
    • Wasps: Wasps can be very hard to get rid of, especially when you're trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in areas like garages, roof overhangs, attics, and sheds.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other moist, dark areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your home.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to eliminate, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Nevada, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Sparks

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

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

    There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

    Next, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

    How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you notice signs of pests in your Sparks home. This could include nests, droppings, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend annual preventive pest management.

    Is pest control safe around pets?

    Your pest control technician will inform you how far your pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but in the vast majority of cases you'll be asked to keep pets away from the area during and for some time after application.

    Do I need to clean my house after pest control services?

    Whether you can clean your home after pest control services will depend on what treatments are used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician before they leave. In many cases, you will be able to dust, vacuum, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There may be a lingering smell following the application of some pesticides.

    Following pest control, it is important to maintain a clean home to avoid encouraging pests to return.
