How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is choosing the best pest control company for the job. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and what other customers have said. 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?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in New Jersey need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro in order to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain employee training standards.

There are several professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. When a company obtains membership in 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 professionals with whom to compare methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's own website can also enlighten you about whether it has the experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, speaking with a representative is an easy way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to find out what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing via the New Jersey licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should provide you with information on every pesticide they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly methods of pest control before relying on harsh pesticides.

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

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

Common Household Pests in North Bergen

Some specific pests are seen more commonly in North Bergen, and these are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can bring in diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches can be found in many places throughout New Jersey, and they prefer wetter areas like North Bergen.
  • Wasps: In many cases, wasps are hard to rid yourself of, especially while trying to avoid being stung. They are commonly found in areas like roof overhangs, attics, garages, and sheds.
  • Mosquitoes: In addition to being a nuisance, mosquito infestations can lead to itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes are most common in wetter climates (like North Bergen) and warmer weather.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout New Jersey, and they can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark areas. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
