How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Hiring the right company for you is the most important step in the pest control process. You may consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum competency standards for pesticide applicators, but licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in Texas need to be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

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

    Pest control companies can also become members of professional organizations. Pest control companies can obtain membership in state-level organizations in addition to national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to resources, education, and a network of other professionals to compare best practices with.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company provides information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can call the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    For many people, cost is one of the main deciding factors when picking a company for pest control. Cost can be affected by factors like your location, the type of pest being treated, and the size of your house.

    You can look into whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), and what kind of guarantees are provided. Often, a company will guarantee that if your pest problem isn't fixed by its treatment, it will continue to treat until it is.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You might also prefer a provider that is environmentally-conscious.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Nowadays, many companies are exploring greener and cleaner pest solutions that can be used before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Mesquite

Not all pests are equally pervasive in Mesquite. Some species that you should keep an eye out for include the following:

  • Moths: If you've been finding holes in your clothing or linens, you may have moths in your home. Moths like dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places (like Mesquite).
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs are difficult to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: Some telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are often found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer dark and moist places and are often found in attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Mesquite

What causes pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests enter your house looking for something, typically food, water, or shelter. Pests may seek out and eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in a particular spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house simply looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots like foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your home. Repair leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

When should I hire an exterminator?

When you see signs of pests in your Mesquite home—such as droppings, nests, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should reach out to your local pest professional. If you've had recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we suggest contacting a local pest control company to request annual pest management services.

Why is preventive pest control important?

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

Do I need to worry about my pets during the pest control process?

It's usually a good idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time following application. Some pest control chemicals are non-toxic or have low toxicity, but as a general rule they should not be ingested by pets. Your pest control technician will tell you how far to keep pets away from treated areas, and for how long.
