How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one for you. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

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 (and those who supervise them) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in the state of Oregon should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. These certifications can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for humans and the environment.

    There are certain professional organizations in which pest control companies can hold membership. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps verify a company's reputability. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company provides 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're unable to find the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources you can use to check 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 Oregon licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Pest control costs can vary based on things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company includes free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the issue is satisfactorily handled?

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

    Ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they are going to use. All pesticides that are not considered minimum-risk chemicals should be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to supply you with information about all chemicals they are going to use.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many are following the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Beaverton

Some pests are more common than others. In Beaverton, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Ticks: If your house is near a forest or area with dense vegetation, or close to a body of water, you may be at greater risk of a tick infestation. Ticks can spread Lyme or other diseases to you and your pets.
  • Bees: Your local pest expert can help eliminate bee infestations around your house (and some companies even have resources to safely relocate hives). You might be particularly eager to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household is allergic.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Oregon, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Beaverton

What causes pest infestations?

Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through 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, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to 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 avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Next, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off potential 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 an exterminator any time you see signs of pests in your Beaverton home. These signs can include nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you get recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

What do I need to do before my pest control technician arrives at my house?

Be sure to ask your pest technician if they need you to clean around your house. This can help them find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some technicians may want to see your home as-is.

If you are asked to clean, make sure paper goods and trash are cleared out of affected areas, as these are common places for pests to hide. Also be sure to put all food away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. Remove any plants in the area to avoid chemical contamination. Lastly, if necessary, block off anticipated treatment areas so that pets and children stay away until it is safe. If you're undergoing a more intensive process like fumigation, be sure to closely follow the instructions of your pest professional.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You may think you're seeing a greater number of pests around your house in the days following pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If pest activity hasn't started to go down in a week or two following treatment, contact your Beaverton pest control professional to see if another treatment is required.
