How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control professional, there are several factors you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the right one for you. Along with a company's qualifications and pest extermination methods, you might also look into how long it has been in business and what the reviews are like. Last but not least, you'll likely want to consider 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 South Dakota regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but providing, maintaining, and revoking licensure 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 trade organizations like QualityPro to verify its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's own website can also help you figure out whether it has the skills and experience needed to handle your specific pest problem. If you can't find the information you need online, calling a representative is a great way to learn about the company's areas of expertise.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the South Dakota licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like your location, the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and other factors can all influence the cost of pest control.

You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

Safety

Be sure to ask your pest control provider if they will be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask what precautionary measures will be in place. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control company should be able to provide information about all pesticides used, in addition to how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Many companies are now trialing options for more eco-friendly solutions before jumping into using harsh pesticides.

One popular method for making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine if 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. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Sioux Falls

Not all pests are equally prevalent in Sioux Falls. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Fleas: Fleas prefer warmer weather and often get into your house by hiding in the fur of pets.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout South Dakota, and they can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: If there are mice in your home, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
