How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the right pest control solutionfor you. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and what other customers have said. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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) sets minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is overseen at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in New York must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has proven its methods to be more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its practices and methods.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company provides information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to hear what other people are saying, 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 includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also take into account a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, will the company provide additional treatment until the problem is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Companies looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Tonawanda

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

  • Snakes: Snakes prefer cool, damp, and dark spots like basements and will often enter a home in search of food. Most species of snakes are harmless, but this is not a risk that you want your family or pets to take.
  • Fleas: Fleas tend to prefer warmer weather and often get into your house by hiding in pet fur.
  • Moths: If your house has moths, you may start finding holes in your linens or clothing. Moths do best in warmer weather and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout New York and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
