How To Choose a Pest Control Company

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

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

  • 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 their supervisors must be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum competency standards, and the New Mexico regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These certifications can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification indicates comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for humans and the environment.

    Pest control companies can also be members of various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare methods. This can offer additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by looking into how long it has been in business. The company's website and local reviews can also tell you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can always contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it has. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control provider might be affected by how environmentally friendly a provider's practices are, as well as how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

  • Safety

    You can ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, ask what precautionary measures will be in place. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all pesticides that will be used in your home, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Companies often begin with more environmentally friendly options before using pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Clovis

Some pests are more common than others. In Clovis, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often difficult to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They can often be found in spots like garages, attics, roof overhangs, and sheds.
  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your home (some companies may have resources to safely relocate hives). You might be especially keen to have bees' nests removed if there is someone in your household who has an allergy.
  • Mosquitoes: You're more likely to face a mosquito infestation if you live in a wetter area. They're also more common when the weather is warmer. Mosquitoes can be more than just annoying—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout New Mexico, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Clovis

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to 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.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you see signs of pests in your Clovis home—such as droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we suggest contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

Can pests come out after spraying for them?

You could feel as though you're seeing a greater number of pests around your house in the days after pest control treatment. This is because living pests are being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't decreased in one to two weeks following treatment, get in touch with your Clovis pest professional to see if another treatment is required.
