How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Some things you might 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?

Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum competency standards, and the South Carolina regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. While not required, they can help you assess the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification recognizes comprehensive and effective pest control treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in both state-level organizations and national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company displays information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you can't get the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

You can take into consideration whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. 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

Your choice of pest control provider might be influenced by how environmentally friendly a company's pest control management solutionsare, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

Safety

All pesticides used by your company (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control expert should provide information on every pesticide they will be using. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

Treatment Methods

Many companies will begin with more eco-friendly solutions before using harsh pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  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. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Goose Creek

In Goose Creek, some species of pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Snakes: Snakes often enter homes in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer dark, cool, and damp spots. Although most species of snakes are harmless, you and your family should not take that risk.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to quash, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout South Carolina, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is stored.
