How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the best one to meet your needs. Important factors can include the 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?

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

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help show that a pest control company is reputable.

A pest control company can also be a member of various professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

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

Reviews and Recommendations

You can read reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Pennsylvania 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 affect the price of pest control.

You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important consideration when choosing a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider that employs environmentally friendly practices.

Safety

You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides being used around your house, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information about all pesticides they plan to use, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures they plan to take. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

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

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Bensalem

Certain pests are seen more commonly in Bensalem, and these are the ones you should keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Flies: Flies can be a nuisance in your Bensalem home year-round, but they tend to be more common during the warmer months. You might find flies around sinks or in places where food is kept.
  • Termites: Termites often come into your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, firewood, or mulch. If left uncontrolled, they can do a significant amount of damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Bees: Having bees around your house can be a nuisance, especially if someone in your household is allergic. Your local pest control company can help eliminate bees, and some might even have the resources to safely relocate hives.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where you keep food.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Pennsylvania, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
