How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. You might consider a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. Of course, there is also 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?

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensing is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Oregon should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Obtaining additional optional certifications can help prove that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must prove that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Other various certifications can be obtained through trade organizations like QualityPro.

Pest control companies can also become members of professional organizations. Joining an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to education and resources, plus a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Joining one of these organizations is not required, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company displays information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you figure out if 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 contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be affected by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, 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 a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Your pest technician should use pesticides that are low toxicity or non-toxic any time they can. If any pesticides used don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

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

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

Common Household Pests in McMinnville

  • Wasps: In many cases, wasps are hard to rid yourself of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They are commonly found in spots like sheds, attics, garages, and roof overhangs.

  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
