How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of factors you can consider when selecting the best pest control company for you. Important decision-making factors can include a company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be licensed at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, and the Texas regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    There are additional optional certifications that 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 show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Additional certifications can be earned through QualityPro and similar trade organizations.

    A pest control company can also hold membership in various professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization like 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 treatment methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Browsing a company's website can tell you how many years it has been in operation and what type of pests it specializes in exterminating. Local reviews can also provide 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 contacting the company directly.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can verify a company's legitimacy using the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and social media or local review sites. You can also check with Texas' licensing board to verify the status of a company's license.

  • 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 cost of pest control.

    You can find out whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it provides. 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

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer one that uses environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions around pesticides being used in your home, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. 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 used. All pesticides (except minimum-risk ones) should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly pest control techniques before moving to harsh pesticides.

    One popular method for making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are 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. Manage the pest problem using a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Irving

Not all pests are equally common around Irving. Some species that you should be wary of include the following:

  • Ants: Whether they are smaller soil ants or larger carpenter ants, these bugs can be found in most parts of Texas. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts by causing damage to your house.
  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your house (some even have resources to safely relocate hives). You may be particularly eager to have bees' nests removed if there is someone in your household who is allergic.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Texas, and they can cause major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are often hard to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you might start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is kept or in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Irving

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also enter your home simply looking for shelter and get in through weak spots like broken screens or foundation cracks.

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. This includes things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water can collect outside, and fix leaks inside.

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

It is typically recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If you have an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

What should I do before pest control services?

Before your pest control technician arrives, check and see if they want you to clean around your house, including in areas where there have been pests. Some pest technicians may prefer to see your house as-is.

If you are asked to clean, focus on making sure all trash and paper goods are out of the affected areas (as pests may hide in these items), and that food is stored away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. You may also wish to remove plants from the affected areas. Also make sure to block off areas to be treated so that children and pets stay away until it is safe. If the problem requires a more intensive type of pest control like fumigation, make sure you follow your pest professional's instructions closely.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Typically, pesticide application lasts approximately 30 to 90 days. The exact length of time depends on what chemicals are used, which pests are being targeted, how many pests are in your area, and whether the chemicals are applied outside or inside. Rain can wash away chemicals applied outdoors, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors.
