How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Some things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in New York need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that may be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a pest control company needs to both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

    There are certain professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Belonging to organizations like these is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can learn whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what type of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions for the pesticides used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control expert should be able to supply information about any pesticides they plan to use, 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 have started making the switch to using more natural and environmentally friendly treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some use a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest control management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control solutions as needed.

Common Household Pests in Henrietta

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Henrietta. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

  • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like garages, attics, sheds, and roof overhangs. They are often difficult to rid yourself of, and have painful stings. Your local pest experts can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Ticks: Tick infestations can be dangerous because they might bring Lyme or other diseases into your home. You may be at increased risk of these infestations if your home is near a body of water, a forest, or an area of dense vegetation.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout New York and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are tricky to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Henrietta

What are some causes of 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, via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and 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.

How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

In general, it's recommended that your house is treated for pests approximately once a year, more frequently if there is an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

It's not unusual to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the first few days or weeks after pest control treatment. Pest control tends to flush pests out of their hiding places, which makes them more visible; you might also start seeing more dead pests around your house. If this uptick in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after one to two weeks, contact your Henrietta pest professional, as another treatment may be required.
