How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are a number of things that you can weigh when choosing the right pest control companyfor you. You might take into consideration a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment as well as its years of experience and customer reviews. Of course, there is also the cost of services to consider.

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

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, licensure is handled 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?

A pest control company can optionally apply for additional certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to support its standards and methods. One particular certification is the GreenPro Service Certification, which is given when a company can demonstrate that its methods are more eco-friendly. A company that receives this certification also needs to maintain certain training standards for employees.

Pest control companies can also belong to certain professional organizations. When a company becomes a member of 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 experts with whom to compare methods. This can give you extra peace of mind that a company is following industry best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Generally, a company provides information like its specialities and years of experience on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a particular pest in your area. If you're unable to find the information you need online, you can call the company 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), check out local review sites and social media to hear what other people are saying, or verify its license standing via the Texas licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

You can learn whether a company offers free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what kind of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not resolve your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control expert. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, eco-friendly pest control services.

Safety

You can ask your pest control provider if they plan on using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides—if not, ask about what precautionary measures they plan to use. Any pesticide that poses greater than minimum risk must be registered with the EPA. Your pest technician should be able to supply information about all pesticides to be used, and how safe they are around people and pets.

Treatment Methods

Many companies will begin with more environmentally friendly options before employing pesticides, using a framework called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). When using IPM, the following steps are taken:

  1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in San Juan

You might run into some pests more often in San Juan. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Ants: Ants are common in basically all of Texas. Large carpenter ants can be an even bigger problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your attic or other damp, dark places. Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but you still don't want an infestation of them in your home.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Texas and can cause big problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest bedsheets, wallpaper, furniture, and more.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in places where food is kept or in attics.
