This Old House empowers homeowners with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle various projects and navigate the complexities of homeownership.

How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step is choosing the right pest control professional for the job. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as are its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, you will also want to consider cost.

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

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum competency standards for pesticide application, licensing is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and their supervisors) in Texas need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro. These certifications 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 treatment that is safer for people and the environment.

    A pest control company can also belong to professional organizations. Membership in an organization such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or a state-level organization gives companies access to resources and education, as well as a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices. Membership in one of these organizations is not mandatory, but it can help indicate that a company follows industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can look at a pest control company's years in business to help determine how much experience it has taking care of various pests. You can also explore its website or read customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the type of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, speaking with a company representative is a good way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • 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 influenced by factors like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, and your location.

    You can consider whether a specific company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits your budget), and what sort of guarantees it provides. Often, a company will guarantee that if its treatment doesn't resolve your pest problem, it will continue to come back until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence which provider and treatment methods you choose.

  • Safety

    Your pest control expert should be able to explain the safety precautions of any and all pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to answer questions about whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be in place to protect your family, your pets, and you. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk should be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Pest control companies looking to reduce their reliance on chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Use chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Round Rock

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

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

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Round Rock

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations happen when pests come into your home looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might come looking for food or trash that is left out. Some may also be drawn to standing water outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also come into your house looking for shelter. They can get in through places 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 house. Repair leaks inside and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Lastly, seal off potential pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

How do I know when to hire an exterminator?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pests in your Round Rock home. This could include nests, droppings, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If your home has recurrent or seasonal pest infestations, we recommend annual preventive pest management.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You could feel as though you're seeing more pests in your home in the days after pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed out of their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be seeing more dead pests. If pest activity hasn't decreased in one to two weeks following treatment, get in touch with your Round Rock pest control professional to see if more treatment is required.

How soon can I expect to see results from pest control?

How long it takes pest control to work depends on the issue and treatment. For example, if a wasp nest is removed, the problem should be resolved immediately. In other cases, it could take anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant results from pest control to become apparent. Some pest issues may require your technician to make multiple trips to your home.
