How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, there are several factors you can consider to make sure you choose the right one for you. Some things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we dive into detail on 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) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in New York must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    A pest control company can receive optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to support its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is granted to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain employee training standards.

    There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. Being a member of organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps verify a company's reputability. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of 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 the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can browse reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, verify a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the New York licensing board.

  • 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 influence the price of pest control.

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    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. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Hicksville

You might encounter some pests more often in Hicksville. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Beetles: Around the U.S. and in Hicksville, there are a variety of beetle species that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can do damage by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like garages, sheds, roof overhangs, and attics. They are often difficult to exterminate, and have painful stings. Your local pest control technician can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs are found in most of New York. Carpenter ants can cause more problems than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your home.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Hicksville

What causes pest infestations?

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

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

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Third, reduce standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

When you notice signs of pest activity in your Hicksville home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we suggest contacting a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

Why is preventive pest control important?

Preventive pest control is important because it can help stop pest problems before they start. Your local pest control technician understand the behaviors of pests in your part of Hicksville, including how they make their way into your home and the times of the year during which they are most active. Your technician can make changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your house, helping you save time and money that might otherwise go towards future pest control visits—or towards the damage and illness caused by pests.

How long does exterminator spray last?

The majority of pesticides last about 30 to 90 days after application. Rain can wash away outdoor chemicals, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors. 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.
