How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one for you. You may consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

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

    All pesticide applicators (and those that supervise them) must be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators working in Texas must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can obtain optional certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These are not required, but can help you evaluate the quality of a company's products. For example, the GreenPro Service Certification is given to companies that use comprehensive and effective pest control methods that are safer for humans and the environment.

    Pest control companies can also belong to various professional organizations. Companies can be members of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to education, resources, 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

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has taking care of pests in your area. You can also explore its website or look through customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are looking to get rid of. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look up a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, look for 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 your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors can all affect the price of pest control.

    You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what kind of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not solve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when picking a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that employs environmentally friendly practices.

  • Safety

    Your pest control provider should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides any time they can. If any pesticides they intend to use don't fit into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk are required to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies have begun using more natural treatment methods before, or in place of, harsh chemical pesticides. Some use a program called 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 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 when required, and always along with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Keller

You might run into some pests more frequently in Keller. Some to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Moths: If your house has moths, you might start finding holes in your clothing or linens. Moths thrive in warmer weather (which makes them a particular problem in Keller) and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often difficult to get rid of, especially if you're trying to avoid being stung. They are commonly found in places like sheds, attics, garages, and roof overhangs.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Keller

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 be looking to eat food or trash that is left out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests might also enter your home looking for shelter and get in through places like foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

One way to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, get rid of standing water in and around your home. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

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

What do I need to do before pest control services?

Make 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 technicians may want to see your home as-is.

If you are asked to clean, focus on getting paper goods and trash out of affected areas, as some pests like to hide in these items. Also be sure to put all food away so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. Also remove any plants in the area to avoid contamination with chemicals. Lastly, if needed, block off areas that you expect 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, make sure you closely follow the instructions of your pest professional.

Will I need to clean my house after pest control services?

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

In most cases, vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down certain surfaces will be appropriate after pest control. However, you'll want to avoid wiping away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless you are explicitly told to do so. After the problem is taken care of, continue keeping your home clean. Avoid letting trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This will help keep pests from coming back.
