How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is picking the best pest control professional for the job. Things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Pennsylvania must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies can also obtain optional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its methods and practices.

Pest control companies can also join certain professional organizations. When a company joins an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare treatment methods. This can offer extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company will list 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 specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can browse reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, verify 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

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

When thinking about the cost of services, you should try to determine whether a company offers free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also take into account what guarantees a company offers: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatments until the issue is satisfactorily resolved?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Be sure to ask your pest control expert if they are going to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they will take. Any pesticide that presents above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should supply information about all pesticides used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Nowadays, many companies are exploring cleaner and greener pest control 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 the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
  4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Millcreek

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

  • Fleas: Fleas normally prefer warmer weather and can often be brought in by pets.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often difficult to get rid of, especially when you're trying to avoid being stung. They can often be found in spots like sheds, garages, attics, and roof overhangs.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very difficult to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Pennsylvania, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
