How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, there are a number of things you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the right one for you. A company's qualifications and treatment methods are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to consider cost.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensing is overseen at the state level. All pesticide applicators and their 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 also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support its practices and methods.

    Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help show a company's reputability. In the NPMA and other organizations, pest control companies have access to resources, education, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

For the most part, a company displays information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Online reviews can also tell you whether a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you can't get the information you need online, you can speak with a company representative directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can view a company's reviews and rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to hear what homeowners near you think, or verify its license standing through the Texas licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is probably high on your list of priorities when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, 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 if your company has 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

When choosing a pest control provider, you want to choose one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    All pesticides used by your company (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide information on all the pesticides that they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be taken.

  • Treatment Methods

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

    Many companies have begun to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether immediate action is required.
    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. Employ chemical controls only when required, and always with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Midlothian

In Midlothian, there are some pests that are more common than others. This list includes the following:

  • Moths: If you are noticing holes in your clothing or linens, it's possible that you have moths in your home. Moths like dark places like closets, and are more common in warmer places (like Midlothian).
  • Wasps: Wasps are often found in spots like roof overhangs, attics, sheds, and garages. They have painful stings and are often difficult to get rid of. Your local pest professional can remove wasps from your property safely.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are often found in attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas and can cause major problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Midlothian

What are some causes of pest infestations?

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

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 don't leave trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks inside and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off any potential pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more often. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

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

Whether you can clean your home after pest control services will change depending on the type of treatment(s) used. Make sure that you ask your pest control technician while they are at your home. Generally, you will be able to vacuum, dust, and wipe down certain surfaces, although you should be careful not to wipe away chemical barriers or touch any traps unless you have been explicitly told to do so. There might be a lingering smell after the application of some pesticides.

Following pest treatment, it is important to continue to keep your home clean to avoid encouraging pests to return.

Do pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You could feel like you're seeing more pests in your home in the days following pest control treatment. This is because living pests are being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests around. If the amount of pest activity hasn't started to go down in a week or two following treatment, contact your Midlothian pest professional to see if another treatment is required.
