    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control company for you is key. Along with a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you may also consider how long it has been in business and what the reviews look like. Finally, you'll likely want to consider the cost of services.

    Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

    • 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 licensure is regulated at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in Texas must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      A pest control company can obtain optional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to back up its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given to any company that 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 belong to certain professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not mandatory, but helps show that a company is reputable. The NPMA gives companies access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    For the most part, a company displays information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also help you figure out if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get your questions answered.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), social media, and local review sites. Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license through the Texas licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Pest control costs can vary based on things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

      When thinking about the cost of services, you should first look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its process. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also look into a company's guarantees: If the problem is not resolved, or returns, will the company provide additional treatments until the problem is satisfactorily handled?

    Safety and Treatment Methods

    When it comes to choosing 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 an environmentally-conscious provider.

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

      You can ask if your technician will begin with lower-toxicity, more natural options before moving on to harsher chemicals.

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

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

    Common Household Pests in Grapevine

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

    • Beetles: There are a number of species of beetles across the U.S. and in Texas. Many species are harmless, but some can feed on and do damage to things like your carpeting and the wooden structure of your house.
    • Ants: Whether they are larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most parts of Texas. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want a spider infestation in your home.
    • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to eliminate, 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: If you have a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in attics or in places where food is kept.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Grapevine

    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 enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

    How can I prevent pest infestations?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off potential 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 home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

    How often do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

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

    How long does pest control last?

    Most pesticides last around 30 to 90 days after application. Rain can wash away outdoor chemicals, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the application method, what pests are being targeted, and the extent of your pest problem.
