How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Hiring the right company for you is the most important step in the pest control process. You might consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

Below, we explore the details of each factor.

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

    All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in New York must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for people and the environment.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's experience level by looking at how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether a certain company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out social media and local review sites to find out what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing via the New York licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    The cost of pest control can vary based on things like the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    When considering the cost of services, you should verify whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or if it returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the problem is satisfactorily resolved?

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    Be sure to ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what precautionary measures they plan to take. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to provide you with information about all of the pesticides they plan to use.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented 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 required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Southampton

In Southampton, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Ticks: If your home is near a forest or an area of dense vegetation, or near a body of water, you may be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you and your pets.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout New York, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where you keep food.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Southampton

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also enter your home simply looking for shelter. They can get in through places such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Work to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Southampton home. You might see nests, droppings, damage, or even the pests themselves. If you get recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend annual preventive pest management.

Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

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

Will pests come out after spraying for them?

It's not uncommon 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 from their hiding places, thereby making them more visible; you might also see more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't begin to decrease after one to two weeks, reach out to your Southampton pest professional. Another treatment may be required.
