How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you might also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Finally, you'll likely want to look at 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, as well as those that supervise them, need to 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?

    One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain 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 obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up their work.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps show that a company is reputable. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The amount of time that a company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with various pests. Customer reviews or the company's website itself can also help you figure out whether it has the skills and experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, calling a representative is an easy way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), local review sites, and social media. Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the New York licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what sort of guarantees it has. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before jumping into using 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. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Brookhaven

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Brookhaven. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Mosquitoes: On top of being a nuisance, a mosquito infestation can result in itchy bites and possibly even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates (like Brookhaven) and at warmer times of the year.
  • 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 house.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where you keep food.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Brookhaven

What causes pest infestations?

Pests come into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. 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. Third, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you notice signs of pests in your Brookhaven home. This could include nests, droppings, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

Can I clean my house after pest control services?

Whether you need to clean your home after pest control services will depend on what treatments are used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Generally, you will be able to dust, vacuum, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. You might notice a lingering smell following the application of some pesticides.

Following pest control, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.

How long does pest control last?

The majority of pesticides last about 30 to 90 days after application. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include the extent of the pest problem, what specific pests are present, the chemicals used, and the method of applying them.
