    How To Choose a Pest Control Company

    Choosing the best pest control company for you is important. You may consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and price of services.

    Below, we explore the details of each factor.

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

      All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, must be licensed via the appropriate Texas regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, but providing, maintaining, and revoking licensing is handled at the state level.

    • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

      Pest control companies have the option to obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. While not required, they can help you assess 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 people and the environment.

      Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. Being a member of organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. The NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

    Professional Experience and Specialties

    A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has handling various pests. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, speaking with a company representative is a great way to learn more.

    • Reviews and Recommendations

      You can look at a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), read local review sites and social media to hear what other people are saying, or verify its license standing through the Texas licensing board.

    • Cost of Services and Guarantees

      Things like the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors can all affect the cost of pest control.

      You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what sort of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will keep coming back until it does.

    Safety and Treatment Methods

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

    • Safety

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

    • Treatment Methods

      Many companies are now exploring cleaner and greener pest management that can be implemented before (or in place of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

      1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine if 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 when absolutely necessary, 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 New Braunfels

    Some pests are more common than others. In New Braunfels, common pests to be watchful for include the following:

    • Wasps: Wasps are commonly found in places like sheds, attics, garages, and roof overhangs. They have painful stings and are often difficult to rid yourself of. Your local pest control technician can remove wasp nests from your property safely.
    • Snakes: Snakes often enter houses in search of food, and once inside they tend to prefer damp, cool, and dark places. Although the majority of snakes are harmless, most people don't want their family, their pets, or themselves to take that risk.
    • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other dark, damp places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
    • Mice: If you have mice, you may start noticing droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. Frequently, mice are found in places where food is kept or in attics.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in New Braunfels

    What are some causes of pest infestations?

    Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash left sitting out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) 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?

    One method for preventing pest infestations is to seal off possible entrances into your house. This includes things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Second, avoid leaving food out for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Third, reduce standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and repair leaks inside.

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

    You should consider hiring an exterminator any time you see signs of pests in your New Braunfels home. This could include nests, droppings, damage caused by pests, or even the pests themselves. If you get recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend setting up annual preventive pest management.

    What do I need to do before my pest control technician arrives at my house?

    Before a pest professional comes to your home, check and see if they want you to clean around your house, including in areas where you've noticed pests. Some pest professionals may prefer to see your house as-is.

    If you are asked to clean, make sure all trash and paper goods are out of the affected areas (as pests may hide in these items), and that you store food securely so that it does not get contaminated by pesticides. You might also want to remove plants from the area. Also make sure to block off areas to be treated so that children and pets stay away until it is safe. If your home requires more intensive pest control, such as fumigation, make sure you follow your pest professional's instructions closely.

    Should I clean my house after pest control services?

    We recommend discussing this question with your pest technician while they are in your home, as the answer can vary depending on the treatments used. After pesticide application, you might notice a lingering smell that should dissipate over time.

    Typically, dusting, vacuuming, and wiping down certain surfaces are all appropriate after pest control. However, make sure that you don't wipe away chemical barriers, and avoid touching any traps unless explicitly told to do so. After pest control, continue keeping your home clean. Don't let trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This helps discourage pests from returning.
