How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things that you can take into consideration when choosing the best pest control company for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, 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?

    All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, need to be licensed via the appropriate Oregon regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Companies can be members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has dealing with pests in your area. You can also explore its website or look through customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors can all affect the price 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 provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

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


Common Household Pests in Aloha

In Aloha, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes looking for food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, damp, and cool areas like basements. While most species of snakes are harmless, most people don't want their family, their pets, or themselves to take that risk.
  • Flies: You may see flies around sinks or in places where you keep food. Flies can get into your house in Aloha throughout the year, but they're especially common when the weather gets warmer.
  • Beetles: There are a number of species of beetles across the U.S. and in Oregon. Many are harmless, but some may eat and do damage to things like carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Oregon and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Aloha

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your home 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 attracted to food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Next, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

How often should I hire someone to do pest control?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If there is an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Should I clean my home after pest control services?

We recommend checking in with your pest control technician while they are in your home, as the answer will vary depending on the treatments used. After application of pesticides, you may notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

Typically, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces will be appropriate after pest control. However, you'll want to avoid wiping away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After the pests are taken care of, continue keeping your home clean. Don't let garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
