How To Choose a Pest Control Company

It's important to choose the right pest control companyfor you. Some things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, pest intervention strategies, 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?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensing is overseen at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their supervisors in Texas need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is given once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more eco-friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A company can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further verify its methods and practices.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at a pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in operation and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with a certain type of pest. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try calling the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

Cost of Services and Guarantees

It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be influenced by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

Many companies offer free on-site estimates at the beginning of their process, to help you decide whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

It's important to consider safety when choosing a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who employs more natural, eco-friendly pest control management.

Safety

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

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control provider will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity options before employing harsher chemicals.

Many companies have begun to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to eliminate pests while reducing personal and environmental risks. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether 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. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Edinburg

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

  • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these bugs are found in most parts of Texas. Carpenter ants can pose a bigger problem than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Termites: Termites frequently get into your home from nearby piles of rotting wood, mulch, or firewood. If left untreated, they can do significant damage and cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in repairs.
  • Moths: If your house has moths, you may notice holes in your linens or clothing. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Edinburg) and enjoy dark places like closets.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are commonly found in attics.
