How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When picking a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one for you. Important decision-making factors include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

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 (and those who supervise them) need to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in Tennessee should be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • 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 environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer other certifications. While not required, these can help show that a company is reputable.

    Pest control companies can also become members of professional organizations. Companies can be members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to education, resources, and a network of other pest professionals. While not required, membership in professional organizations helps demonstrate a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company provides information like years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can check a company's reputation using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Tennessee'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 main deciding factors when looking for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like your location, the type of pest being treated, and the size of your house.

    You can look into whether a certain company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You may also prefer a provider that is environmentally-conscious.

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control technician if they plan to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides, and if not, what precautionary measures they are going to use. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals should be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician will be able to provide information about all pesticides that they plan on using.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will start with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, using a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and 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 if needed, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Brentwood

In Brentwood, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Termites: Termites can often enter your house from nearby piles of mulch, firewood, or rotting wood. If not stopped, they can do a substantial amount of damage and necessitate hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Fleas: Fleas tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Brentwood) and often get indoors by hiding in pet fur.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other moist, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want an infestation of them in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Tennessee, and they can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Brentwood

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is sitting out. Some may also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also come into your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Will I need to clean my home after pest control services?

We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are in your home, as the answer can vary depending on what treatments are done. After application of pesticides, you might notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

Generally, vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure that you don't wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After pest control, continue keeping your home clean. Don't let garbage pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps keep pests from coming back.

Will pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

It's common to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the first few days or weeks after pest control. Pest control tends to flush pests from their hiding spaces, which makes them more visible; you might also see more dead pests around your house. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after one to two weeks, contact your Brentwood pest professional. Further treatment may be required.
