How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors that you can consider when selecting the right pest control treatment planfor you. Factors you may consider include qualifications and licensing, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

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 Pennsylvania regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, while issuing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can optionally apply for certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations in order to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given to any company that can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. These companies also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it receives access to resources, education, and a network of other pest experts with whom to compare methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in operation and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If this information isn't available online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's reputation using social media or local review sites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Pennsylvania's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

For many people, cost is one of the most important factors when looking for pest control. Cost can be determined by factors like your location, the type of pest being treated, and the size of your house.

You can think about whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to select one that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly solutions before employing harsh pesticides.

One common way of making pest control safer and more eco-friendly is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Abington

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

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be found in many parts of Pennsylvania, although they prefer wetter areas. This can make them an even bigger problem in Abington. Cockroaches might come inside through small cracks, and they can bring in diseases like salmonella.
  • Flies: You might see flies around sinks or in areas where food is kept. Flies can get into your Abington home year-round, but they're particularly common during warmer months.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
