This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things you can take into consideration when choosing the best pest control company for you. Some things you may consider include qualifications and licensing, treatment methods, 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?

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Obtaining additional optional certifications can help prove that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a company must show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Other various certifications can be obtained through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

    Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps show that a company is reputable. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company provides information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look up a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to learn what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing through the Tennessee licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when selecting a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    Be sure to ask your pest control technician if they are going to use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that has been deemed above minimum risk needs to be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides to be used, as well as how safe they are around people and pets.

  • Treatment Methods

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

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess 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 required, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Gallatin

In Gallatin, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Wasps: Wasps are often hard to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid being stung. They are commonly found in areas like garages, attics, roof overhangs, and sheds.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations are often very hard to quash, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Tennessee, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • 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 home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Gallatin

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, eliminate standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

When you notice signs of pest activity in your Gallatin home—such as nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend contacting a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

Your pest control professional will let you know how far your pets should be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, but in the vast majority of cases you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after application.
