    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. In addition to a company's qualifications and treatment methods, you might also look into 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 discuss each of these factors in more detail.

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

      Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them must be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Texas pesticide applicators should be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      An optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To obtain this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain training standards for its technicians. Companies can obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

      Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. When a company joins an organization like the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to education, resources, and a network of other pest experts with whom to compare treatment methods. This can give you additional peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    Generally, a company provides information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Online reviews can also inform you as to whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can contact a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      Resources that can help you verify a company's reputation include social media, local review sites, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Additionally, you can confirm the status of a company's license via 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 affected influenced by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

      Many companies offer free on-site estimates before starting work, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers a satisfaction guarantee, meaning that if your pest problem is not solved by the initial treatment, it will continue returning until it is.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

      Your pest control technician should be able to explain the safety precautions of any and all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not what safety precautions they plan to use to protect you, your family, and your pets. All pesticides that pose above a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

    • Treatment Methods

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

      Many companies are now using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce personal or environmental risk when treating pest infestations. The steps of IPM are as follows:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if immediate action is needed.
      2. Decide on the safest course of action.
      3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
      4. Employ chemical controls only when required, 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 League City

    In League City, some species of pests are more common than others. This list includes the following:

    • Mosquitoes: You're more likely to face a mosquito infestation if you live in a wetter area (like League City). They're also more common when the weather is warmer. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance—they can cause itchy bites and even spread diseases.
    • Cockroaches: You can find cockroaches in many parts of Texas, though they prefer wetter areas. This can make them an even bigger problem in League City. Cockroaches can enter your home through small cracks, and they can sometimes carry diseases like salmonella.
    • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to get rid of, so we 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 your wallpaper.
    • Mice: Common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
    • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in League City

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pests enter your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home through a broken screen or foundation crack. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

    What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

    There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

    Next, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

    How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

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

    Should I clean my home after pest control services?

    We recommend checking in with your pest control technician while they are in your home, as the answer can vary depending on what treatments are done. After application of pesticides, you might notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

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