How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is selecting the best pest control company for the job. You may consider a company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Tennessee must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    There are additional optional certifications that can help show that a pest control company is reputable. One example is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a company must show that its methods are more eco-friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Other certifications can be earned through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

The number of years that a pest control company has been in business can give you some insight into its experience dealing with the pests that live in La Vergne. 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, contacting the company directly is a great way to learn about its areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Things like the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors can all influence 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 sort of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not eliminate your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, any children or pets, and the environment might influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    You will want to understand the precautions around pesticides being used in your home, for the sake of your family, your pets, and yourself. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information about the pesticides they will be using, whether they are low toxicity or non-toxic, and (if not) what safety measures will be in place. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) must be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Organizations looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often implement procedures such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

    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. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, physical, and mechanical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in La Vergne

Some specific pests are more common in La Vergne, and these are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Fleas: Generally, fleas prefer warmer weather (which can make them a particular problem in La Vergne) and can often be brought in by pets.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in places like sheds, roof overhangs, attics, and garages. They have painful stings and are often difficult to eliminate. Your local pest experts can remove wasp nests from your property safely.
  • Moths: If you're noticing holes in your clothing or linens, it's possible that you have moths in your house. Moths like dark places like closets, and are more common in warmer places (like La Vergne).
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Tennessee and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Spiders: You may encounter spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in La Vergne

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, usually food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash left sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also enter your house simply looking for shelter and get in through places like foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

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

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your house. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

Generally, it's recommended that your house is treated for pests around once a year, more frequently if there is an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Do pests come out after spraying for them?

You might think you're seeing a greater number of pests around your house in the days after pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't started to go down in one to two weeks following treatment, contact your La Vergne pest professional to see if another treatment is required.
