    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control treatment for you is important. Important decision-making factors include a 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?

      Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Oklahoma pesticide applicators should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. While not required, they can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

      A pest control company can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to education, resources, and a network of other professionals with whom to compare best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    In general, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look for reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through 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 influence 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), as well as what type 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

    Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that uses eco-friendly treatment methods.

    • Safety

      Ask your pest control provider if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what kind of precautionary measures they will have in place. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals should be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to supply information about all pesticides they plan to use.

    • Treatment Methods

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

      Many companies now use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce personal or environmental risk when treating pest infestations. The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
      4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
      5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

    Common Household Pests in Stillwater

    Some pests are seen more commonly in Stillwater, and these pests are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

    • Flies: You might notice flies around sinks or in places where food is kept. Flies might get into your Stillwater home year-round, but they're particularly common when the weather gets warmer.
    • Ticks: Tick infestations can be dangerous because they might bring diseases like Lyme into your home. You might be at increased risk of a tick infestation if you live near a forest, a body of water, or an area of dense vegetation.
    • Moths: If you're dealing with a moth infestation, you may start finding holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Stillwater) and prefer dark places like closets.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Oklahoma and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
    • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is stored.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Stillwater

    What causes pest infestations?

    Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by 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 leaky pipes.

    What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

    There are several 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.

    Next, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

    You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pest activity in your Stillwater home. This can include seeing nests, droppings, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

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

    We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are at your house, as the answer can vary depending on the treatments used. After pesticide application, you might notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

    In most cases, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces will be appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After the pest control process, continue to keep your home clean. Avoid letting garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This will help keep pests from coming back.

    How soon can I expect to see results from pest control services?

    How soon you notice pest control results will depend on the issue and treatment. If your pest technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you may need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks to see substantial results. Some infestations may require your pest professional to make multiple trips to your home.
