How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the right one to meet your needs. Important decision-making factors can include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course 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?

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are more 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 pest control company is reputable.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company will list information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment may affect the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of any pesticides they plan to use. They should be able to clarify whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions will be used to protect you, your family, and your pets. Pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    You can ask if your pest control provider will start with lower-toxicity and more eco-friendly options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

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

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Bartlesville

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

  • Fleas: These pests tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Bartlesville) and often get into your home by hiding in the fur of pets.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Oklahoma, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other dark, damp places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Bartlesville

What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

Any time you see signs of pests in your Bartlesville home—which could include nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact an exterminator. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we suggest reaching out to a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

How long does pest control last?

Typically, pesticide application lasts about 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time varies based 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. Rain can wash away chemicals applied outdoors, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors.
