How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control expert, there are a number of factors that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. You may consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

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, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate New Jersey regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

    Pest control professionals can also belong to professional organizations. A pest control company can join both state-level organizations and 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 education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company displays information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), look for reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the New Jersey licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type of guarantees it has. 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

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

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest control 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. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Ewing

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

  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Ewing home, but they may be especially common in warmer weather. You might find flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout New Jersey, and they can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Ewing

What causes pest infestations?

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

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, eliminate standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you see signs of pests in your Ewing home. These signs can include droppings, nests, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If your home has seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

Do pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You might feel like you're seeing more pests around your house in the days following 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 finding more dead pests. If pest activity hasn't started to go down in one to two weeks following treatment, contact your Ewing pest control professional to see if another treatment is required.

How long does exterminator spray last?

In general, pesticide application lasts approximately 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends on which pests are being targeted, how many of them there are, what chemicals are used, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation.
