How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the best pest control solutionfor you. Important decision-making factors can 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?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is regulated at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in North Carolina must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has proven its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further verify its practices and methods.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what kind of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also give you some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try contacting the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look at a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), check out local review sites and social media to find out what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing through the North Carolina licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

Companies will often 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 if your company has a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control company, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly pest control services.

Safety

All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should provide you with information on every 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 they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

Companies often start with more environmentally friendly treatment options before employing pesticides, using 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 if immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Wilson

Certain pests are more common than others. In Wilson, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps can be very difficult to rid yourself of, especially if you're trying to avoid being stung. They can often be found in spots like garages, attics, sheds, and roof overhangs.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is stored or in attics.
