How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Important factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

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) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in New Jersey should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to earn this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can be a member of. Pest control companies can obtain membership in 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 education, resources, and a network of professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has taking care of various pests. You can also look at its website or read customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's reputation using social media or local review sites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with New Jersey's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

It's important to think about cost when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine 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

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Ask your pest control expert if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should be able to provide information about all of the pesticides that will be used in your home, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Many companies have begun using more natural and greener treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest control management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control services as needed.

Common Household Pests in New Brunswick

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

  • Moths: If you are noticing holes in your clothing or linens, you might have moths in your home. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places.
  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests can be found in most parts of New Jersey. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout New Jersey and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where you keep food.
