How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control company, there are several factors that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. Important decision-making factors include a 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) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Texas need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support its practices and methods.

    Pest control companies can also become members of various professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gains access to resources, education, and a network of other pest experts with whom to compare methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Typically, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look for reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, view a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check the status of its license through the Texas 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 price of pest control.

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

When picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will help keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    You can ask if your technician will begin with more natural and lower-toxicity options before employing harsher chemicals.

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

    1. Identify problem pests and determine if immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Edinburg

Not all pests are equally common in Edinburg. Some species that you should be on the lookout for are these:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Texas. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than normal soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Termites: If termites get out of hand, the result could be hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Often, termites get into your house via nearby piles of rotting wood, mulch, or firewood.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is kept.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend hiring an exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Texas, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Edinburg

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house 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 drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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

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

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

When you notice signs of pest activity in your Edinburg home—such as nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If your home has had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Should I clean after pest control services?

We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are at your house, as the answer can vary depending on the treatments used. After application of pesticides, you may notice a lingering smell that will eventually dissipate over time.

Generally, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure to not wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After the problem is taken care of, continue to keep your home clean. Don't let trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.

Will pests come out after spraying for them?

It's normal to feel as though you're seeing more pests in the days or weeks following pest control treatment. The process tends to flush pests out of their hiding places, thereby making them more visible; you may also start seeing more dead pests around your house. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't begin to decrease after a week or two, contact your Edinburg pest professional, as another treatment may be required.
