How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of things you can weigh when choosing the right pest control company for you. You may consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods in addition to its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

  • Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

    All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, must be licensed via the appropriate New York regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, plus a professional network to compare best practices with. Membership in one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by looking at how many years it has been in operation. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always call the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when looking for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like your location, the type of pest being treated, and the size of your house.

    You can take into consideration whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should provide information about the pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are making the switch to using more natural treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Brighton

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

  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most parts of New York. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your home.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout New York, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Brighton

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also enter your home looking for shelter and get in through places like foundation cracks or broken screens.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How frequently should I hire someone to do pest control?

It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If there is an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Is pest control safe around pets?

Your pest control expert will let you know how far your pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule you'll be asked to keep pets away from the area during and for some time after application.

How soon can I expect to see results from pest control?

How soon you notice pest control results will depend on the problem and treatment. If your pest control technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see results almost immediately. However, for most pest control you might need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant results. Some pest problems might require your technician to make multiple trips to your home.
