How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Some things you might consider include licensing and qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we dive into detail on each of these factors.

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

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

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that may 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 technician training standards. Companies can obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up their work.

    Pest control companies can also be members of certain professional organizations. Becoming a member of an organization like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, as well as a professional network to compare best practices with. Joining organizations like these is not required, but it can help show that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of pest management experience by seeing how many years it has been in operation. The company's website and local reviews can also let you know whether the company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look for reviews and recommendations on local review sites or social media, verify a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or check its licensure status through the Texas licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    When thinking about the cost of services, you should verify whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can help determine whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, does the company promise to offer additional treatment until the issue is handled satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    It's important to understand the precautions for the pesticides used in your house, for the sake of you, your family, and your pets. Your pest control technician should be capable of providing information about all 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 will begin with more environmentally friendly options before employing pesticides, following a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

    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. Use a combination of biological, cultural, mechanical, and physical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Lubbock

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

  • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles across the country and in Texas. Many types are harmless, but some may eat and do damage to things like your carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
  • Termites: If a termite infestation is left untreated, the result could be hundreds or thousands of dollars in damage. Often, termites enter your home via nearby piles of mulch, rotting wood, or firewood.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very difficult to eliminate, so we recommend calling a professional 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: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where food is kept.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Lubbock

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your house looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some could also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also enter your house looking for shelter and get in through places such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

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

How do I know when to hire a pest control professional?

When you see signs of pests in your Lubbock home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If you've had seasonal or recurrent infestations, we recommend getting in touch with a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Why is preventive pest control important?

Preventive pest control is important to help stop pest problems before they start. Local pest control companies know about the pests that live in your part of Lubbock, including how they make their way into your home and at what times of the year they are most active. Your technician can suggest changes and put barriers in place to keep pests out of your home, helping you save time and money that would otherwise be spent on future pest control visits—and on the damage and illness caused by pests.

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. Pest control tends to flush pests from their hiding places, making them more visible; you may also start seeing more dead pests around your home. If the increase in pests sightings doesn't start to decrease after a week or two, contact your Lubbock pest professional. Another treatment may be necessary.
