How To Choose a Pest Control Company

Choosing the best pest control company for you is important. You might consider a company's qualifications and treatment methods in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

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

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

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the Texas regulatory agencies handle the issuing, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations. 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 become members of professional organizations. When a company obtains membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association(NPMA) (or a state-level organization), it gets access to resources, education, and a network of other pest control professionals with whom to compare methods. This can offer extra peace of mind that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company will list information like specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get your questions answered.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Texas licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is an important consideration when picking a pest control company. Cost may be determined by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

    Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you match services to your budget. You can also see if it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    All pesticides that will be used (except those that pose only a minimum risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information on all the pesticides that they are using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies will start with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, using a technique 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 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. Use 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 North Richland Hills

Certain pests are more common than others. In North Richland Hills, common pests to be wary of include the following:

  • Bees: Your local pest expert can help eliminate bee infestations around your house (and some companies even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be especially concerned with having bees' nests removed if someone in your household is allergic.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice are commonly found in attics or in areas where you keep food.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. Even though most species of spider are harmless to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs can be very hard to quash, so we recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in North Richland Hills

What causes pest infestations?

Pests make their way into your house looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will enter your home simply because they have the opportunity to do so, through a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

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 out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers and not leaving trash out. Finally, reduce standing water in and around your home. Work to reduce places where water can collect 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 notice signs of pests in your North Richland Hills home. You might see droppings, nests, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If you've had seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

Do I need to worry about my pets during or after pest control?

Your pest control company will tell you how far pets need to be kept away from treated areas, and for how long after treatment. Some pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, but as a general rule you'll be asked to keep pets out of the area during and for some time after treatment.

What should I do before a pest control technician comes to my house?

Before your pest control technician arrives, check and see if they want you to clean around your house, including in areas where there have been pests. Some pest technicians may prefer to see your home as-is.

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