How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, there are several things that you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. You might take into consideration a company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also 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?

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in New Jersey should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • 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 environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. A pest control company can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company displays information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • 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 verify the status of a company's license.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment may affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Be sure to ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what kind of precautionary measures they plan to take. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to provide information about all of the pesticides that they are going to use.

  • Treatment Methods

    Pest control professionals looking to reduce their use of 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, 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 Parsippany-Troy Hills

In Parsippany-Troy Hills, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Ants: Whether smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these pests are found in most areas of New Jersey. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Ticks: If you live near forests or areas with dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you might be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you or your pets.
  • Flies: You may see flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept. Flies might get into your house in Parsippany-Troy Hills throughout the year, but they're particularly common during warmer months.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout New Jersey, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Parsippany-Troy Hills

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your home looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

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

One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, eliminate standing water in and around your home. Find ways to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

Generally, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests about once annually, more often if there is an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Why is preventive pest control important?

If there are pests in your home, you might find yourself spending a large amount of time and money ridding your house of them, as well as possibly recovering from illness or damages they cause. Preventive pest control can help stop things like this from happening.

Will pests come out after spraying for them?

It's common to feel like you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control. Pest control tends to flush pests out of their hiding spaces, making them more visible; you might also find more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't begin to decrease after a week or two, contact your Parsippany-Troy Hills pest professional, as further treatment may be required.
