    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the right one for you. Important factors include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

    Below, we explore the details of 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) sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of New York should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. These are not required, but can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

      Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. A pest control company can obtain membership in state-level organizations in addition to national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has taking care of various pests in Yorktown. You can also browse its website or look through customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information can't be found online, contacting a representative directly is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include local review sites, social media, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the New York licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

      You can consider whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind 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

    Safety is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly methods.

    • Safety

      All pesticides that will be used (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) are required to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should provide information on each pesticide they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

    • Treatment Methods

      Companies looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Yorktown

    Some pests are more prevalent in Yorktown, and these are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

    • Moths: If you are noticing holes in your linens or clothing, you may have moths in your home. Moths like dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places.
    • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is kept or in attics.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout New York, and they can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Yorktown

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests enter your home looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your home simply looking for shelter and get in through places such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

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

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Finally, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

    When should I hire an exterminator?

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Yorktown home. This could include nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you get recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up yearly preventive pest management.

    Is pest control safe around my pets?

    It's usually a smart idea to keep your pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are low or non-toxic, but generally they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control professional will tell you how far to keep pets out of treated areas, and for how long.

    How long does exterminator spray last?

    Generally, pesticide application lasts around 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends on which pests are being targeted, how many of them there are, what chemicals are used, and whether the chemicals are applied outside or inside. Chemicals applied outdoors may not last as long as those applied indoors due to precipitation.
