    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step is choosing the right pest control company for the job. Some things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, 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?

      All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in New York should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      There are additional optional certifications that can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Other certifications can be earned through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

      There are certain professional organizations that pest control companies can be members of. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has taking care of various pests. You can also browse its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, speaking with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

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

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not solve 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 company's practices are, as well as 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 kind of precautionary measures they are going to use. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to provide you with information about all pesticides that they plan to use.

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your technician will start with more natural and lower-toxicity options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

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

      1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is required.
      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. Use chemical controls only if needed, 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 Perinton

    In Perinton, certain pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

    • Mosquitoes: On top of being annoying, a mosquito infestation can result in itchy bites and even put you and your family at risk of diseases. Mosquitoes thrive in wetter climates and in warmer months.
    • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can sometimes spread diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches are found in many places throughout New York, and they prefer wetter areas.
    • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like roof overhangs, attics, garages, and sheds. They are often difficult to exterminate, and have painful stings. Your local pest control technician can help remove wasps from your property safely.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout New York and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp areas. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your house.
    • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where you keep food.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Perinton

    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 look for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

    There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

    How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

    Normally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If you have an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Is pest control safe around my pets?

    Your pest control technician will inform you how far your pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but in the vast majority of cases you'll be asked to keep pets away from the area during and for some time after treatment.

    Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

    You might feel as though you're seeing more pests around your house in the days following pest control treatment. This is because living pests are being flushed out of their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't started to go down in one to two weeks following treatment, contact your Perinton pest professional to see if more treatment is required.
