How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is selecting the best pest control company for the job. A company's qualifications and pest treatment methods are important to consider, as are its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in the state of Texas must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

A pest control company can optionally apply for certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to back up 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 environmentally friendly. Companies that receive this certification also need to maintain certain training standards for employees.

Pest control companies can also join certain professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control companies. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has handling various pests in Amarillo. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are dealing with. If this information is not available online, getting in touch with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can read reviews and recommendations on social media or local review sites, look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, or check its licensure status through the Texas licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

You can look into 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 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'll likely also prefer a provider that is eco-friendly.

Safety

Your pest control technician should be able to discuss the safety of any pesticides that they're going to use. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they will put in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. Any pesticides that pose above a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

Nowadays, many companies are exploring more environmentally friendly pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

  1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is required.
  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. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Amarillo

Some pests are more common than others. In Amarillo, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can carry diseases such as salmonella. Cockroaches are found throughout Texas, and they prefer wetter areas.
  • Beetles: In Amarillo and around the U.S., there are a number of species of beetles that could cause problems. While many beetles are harmless, others can cause damage to your home by eating carpeting, wood, and more.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to eliminate, so we recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where you keep food.
