How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to consider 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?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them are required to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all New Jersey pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support its methods and practices.

Pest control experts can also obtain membership in professional organizations. Membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a pest control company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has taking care of pests in Jersey City. You can also browse its website or peruse customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information can't be found online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is an important consideration when picking a pest control company. Cost may be determined by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you decide if it fits into your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

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

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

Common Household Pests in Jersey City

In Jersey City, some species of pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Moths: If there is a moth infestation in your home, you might start finding holes in your linens or clothing. Moths do best in warmer weather and enjoy dark places like closets.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout New Jersey, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
