How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control professional, there are a number of things that you can consider to make sure you choose the right one for you. You may consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also 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?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensing is regulated at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in New York need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These are not required, but 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 people and the environment.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Joining an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization grants a pest control company access to education and resources, in addition to 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

Looking at a pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If this information isn't available online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the New York licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected by the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates as part of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

All pesticides used by your company (except those that pose only a minimum risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information on all the pesticides that they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

Treatment Methods

Pest control experts looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Hicksville

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

  • Beetles: In Hicksville and around the U.S., there are a variety of beetle species that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating carpeting, wood, and more.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like sheds, roof overhangs, garages, and attics. They have painful stings and are often difficult to eliminate. Your local pest control technician can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout New York and can lead to major 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 wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.
