    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to look at the cost of services.

    Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

      According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum competency standards, and the North Carolina regulatory agencies take care of the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can receive optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to back up its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more environmentally friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain training standards for employees.

      A pest control company can also belong to professional organizations. Companies can obtain membership in the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Looking at how long a pest control company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has handling pests in your area. You can also look at its website or look through customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are looking to get rid of. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can check a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the North Carolina licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Cost is an important consideration when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

      A pest control company may offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also check to see if it offers a guarantee of satisfaction.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    Your choice of pest control provider 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

      You will want to understand the precautions for the pesticides used in your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control expert should provide information about all pesticides they intend to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they have in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) need to be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies have started offering options for more eco-friendly solutions before moving to harsh pesticides.

      One common method for making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
      2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
      3. Use a combination of physical, biological, mechanical, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
      4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Fuquay-Varina

    In Fuquay-Varina, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

    • Snakes: Snakes prefer dark, cool, and damp spots and often enter a home in search of food. While most species of snakes are harmless, this is not a risk that you want your family or pets to take.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout North Carolina, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
    • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Fuquay-Varina

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations happen when pests come into your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your home simply looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

    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 siding or foundation. Also try to avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, eliminate standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

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

    Generally, it's recommended that you have your house treated for pests around once a year, more frequently if you have an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

    Why is preventive pest control important?

    If there are pests in your home, you might end up spending a good deal of time and money ridding yourself of them, as well as possibly recovering from illness or damages they caused. Preventive pest control can help stop things like this from happening in the first place.

    How long does exterminator spray last?

    In general, pesticide application lasts approximately 30 to 90 days. The exact duration depends on what chemicals are used, which pests are being targeted, how many pests are in your area, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Rain can wash away chemicals applied outdoors, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors.
