How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control company, there are a number of factors you can consider to be sure that you're choosing the right one for you. Important factors include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide application, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Texas must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

    There are various professional organizations that a pest control company can belong to. Pest control companies can join state-level organizations as well as national organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

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 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 speak with a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, explore reviews on social media or local review sites, or check the standing of its license via the Texas 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 affect the price of pest control.

    You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what type of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your choice of pest control company might be affected by how environmentally friendly a provider's practices are, in addition to how safe its methods are around your family and pets.

  • Safety

    All pesticides used by your company (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to supply information on each pesticide they are using. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

  • Treatment Methods

    It is now common for companies to begin with more environmentally friendly options before employing harsh pesticides, using a technique called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Channelview

Some pests are seen more commonly in Channelview, and these are the ones to keep watch for. Some of these include the following:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in basically all of Texas. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Cockroaches: It's important to take care of a cockroach infestation quickly, as they can sometimes spread diseases like salmonella. Cockroaches can be found in many places throughout Texas, and they prefer wetter areas like Channelview.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is kept or in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Texas, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Channelview

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests come into your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

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

How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

When you see signs of pests in your Channelview home—which could include droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to an exterminator. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we recommend reaching out to a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

What is the importance of preventive pest control?

If there are pests in your home, you may find yourself spending a good deal of time and money eliminating of them, and possibly recovering from illness or damages they cause. Preventive pest control can help stop this from happening in the first place.

What should I do before pest control services?

Be sure to ask your pest technician if they want you to clean around your home. This can help ensure they can find, identify, and treat all pests present. However, some providers may want to see your house as-is.

If you are asked to clean, make sure paper goods and trash are cleared out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure that food is stored away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. Also remove any plants in the area to avoid chemical contamination. Finally, if needed, block off areas that you anticipate will be treated so that children and pets do not enter until it is safe. If you're undergoing a more intensive process like fumigation, be sure to closely follow the instructions of your pest professional.
