How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control treatment method for you is important. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to consider cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

  • 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 their supervisors must 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?

    One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to get this certification, a pest control company needs to both show that its practices are more eco-friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can also obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

    There are various professional organizations that pest control companies can be members of. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help to prove a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a pest control company's experience level by looking into how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also inform you whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors can all affect the cost of pest control.

    You can look into whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to 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 environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    You can ask your pest control expert if they will be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should supply information about all pesticides to be used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

    Pest professionals looking to reduce their reliance on 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 determine whether immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Mooresville

You might deal with some pests more often in Mooresville. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Fleas: Fleas typically prefer warmer weather (which can make them a particular problem in Mooresville) and often are brought into the home by pets.
  • Beetles: In Mooresville and around the U.S., there are a number of species of beetles that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating carpeting, wood, and more.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in attics.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to eliminate, 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 wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Mooresville

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 left out. Some might also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also come into your house 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 way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, reduce standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you see signs of pests in your Mooresville home. You might see droppings, nests, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If your home has recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up yearly preventive pest management.

Will I need to clean after pest control services?

Whether you can clean your home following pest control services will change depending on the type of treatment(s) used. Be sure to ask your pest control technician before they leave. Generally, you will be able to dust, vacuum, and wipe down certain surfaces, but you should avoid wiping away chemical barriers or touching any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. You may notice a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

Following pest treatment, it is important to maintain a clean home to discourage pests from returning.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Generally, pesticide application lasts around 30 to 90 days. The exact duration varies based 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.
