How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. You might consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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) sets minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of North Carolina 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 more eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. QualityPro and similar trade organizations also offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a company is reputable.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with various pests. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also help you figure out whether it has the experience necessary to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, reaching out to the company directly is a great way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can verify a company's legitimacy using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with North Carolina's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

    Often, companies will offer free on-site estimates at the beginning of their process, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an eco-friendly provider.

  • Safety

    All pesticides used by your company (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide you with information on all the pesticides that they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

  • Treatment Methods

    You can ask if your pest technician will start with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity treatment methods before employing harsher chemicals.

    Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and 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 when absolutely necessary, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Fayetteville

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Fayetteville. Some species that you should be wary of are these:

  • Snakes: Snakes prefer damp, cool, and dark spots and often enter a home looking for food. Most species of snakes are harmless, but this is not a risk that you want your family or pets to take.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout North Carolina, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your attic or other moist, dark areas. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Fayetteville

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, eliminate standing water in and around your house. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

In general, it's recommended that you get your home treated for pests about once annually, more often if you have an active infestation. Your pest professional will ultimately be the best person to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do I need to clean my house after pest control services?

We recommend checking in with your pest control technician while they are at your house, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After application of pesticides, you may notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

In many cases, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure that you don't wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After the problem is taken care of, continue to keep your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps keep pests from coming back.
