How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control treatment plan for you is key. You might consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a pest control company needs to 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.

Pest control professionals can also obtain membership in professional organizations. Membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps confirm that a company follows industry best practices. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can tell you something about its experience dealing with the pests that live in Penfield. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also help you figure out whether it has the experience needed to eliminate the particular pests that are plaguing you. If you can't find the information you need online, contacting the company directly is an easy way to learn about its areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

You can look into whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment may affect which provider and treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Your pest control expert should be able to discuss the safety of any and all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your technician will start with lower-toxicity, more natural treatment methods before trying harsher chemicals.

Many companies are using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Penfield

Certain pests are more prevalent in Penfield, and these are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Bees: Bees around your house can be a nuisance, particularly if someone in your household has an allergy. Your local pest control company can help get rid of bees; some might even be able to help safely relocate hives.
  • Moths: If your house has moths, you might notice holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather and enjoy dark places like closets.
  • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches throughout New York, although they prefer wetter areas. Cockroaches might get into your house through small cracks, and they can spread diseases like salmonella.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or places where food is kept.
