How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the right pest control companyfor you. You might consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. 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?

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, must be licensed via the appropriate New York regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

Pest control experts can also hold membership in professional organizations. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations as well as national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to education, resources, and a network of professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at a pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in business and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't find this information online, you can try reaching out to the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when hiring for pest control services. Cost can be influenced by factors like your location, the size of your house, and the type of pest being treated.

You can think about whether a particular company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be affected by how eco-friendly a company's pest control servicesare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

Be sure to ask your pest control provider if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they will have in place. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about all pesticides they plan to use.

Treatment Methods

It is now common for companies to start with more eco-friendly options before using pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the 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 with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Union

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

  • Ticks: If you live near forests or areas with dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you may be at higher risk of tick infestations. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you and your pets.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your home.
