How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to be sure to find the best one for you. Important factors include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

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 standards of competency for pesticide application, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Texas should be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    An optional certification that might be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. In order to receive this certification, a pest control company must both show that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can obtain other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support their work.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has taking care of pests in your area. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to decide whether it has the right kind of experience handling the type of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, getting in touch 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, look for 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 important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be affected influenced by the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors.

    Many companies offer free on-site estimates at the beginning of their process, to help you determine whether it fits into your budget. You can also ask whether a provider offers 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

Safety is an important consideration when selecting a pest control provider, and you might prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    All pesticides (except those that are determined to be of minimal risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control technician should be able to provide information on every pesticide they plan to use. They should be able to tell you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions will be in place.

  • Treatment Methods

    It is now common for companies to start with more environmentally friendly options before using harsh pesticides, following a technique 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. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and provide additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Tyler

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

  • Fleas: These pests tend to prefer warmer weather (which can make them a real nuisance in Tyler) and often get into your home by hiding in the fur of pets.
  • Bed bugs: Infestations of bed bugs are often very difficult to get rid of, so we recommend calling a professional as soon as possible. Bed bugs can be found throughout Texas, and can infest not only your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even your wallpaper.
  • Spiders: Spiders usually prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in attics.
  • Mice: If you have a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in attics or in places where food is stored.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Tyler

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests might be looking to eat food or trash that is sitting out. Some could also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one area) or inside (from leaky pipes). They may also enter your house looking for shelter and get in through weak spots such as broken screens or foundation cracks.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off possible entrances into your home. These include things like cracks in your foundation or siding. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This means keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Third, get rid of standing water in and around your house. Find ways to reduce places where water can collect outside, and repair leaks inside.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

Generally, it's recommended that your house is treated for pests approximately once a year, more frequently if you have an active infestation. Your pest control professional will ultimately be the one best equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

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

We recommend asking your pest control technician this question while they are at your house, as the answer will vary depending on what treatments are done. After pesticides are applied, you may notice a lingering smell that will dissipate over time.

Generally, 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 you are explicitly told to do so. After the pest control process, continue to keep your home clean. Don't let trash pile up, take care of spills and leaks promptly, and so on. This will help keep pests from coming back.

How long does pest control last?

Typically, pesticide application lasts about 30 to 90 days. The exact duration depends on which pests are being targeted, how many of them there are, what chemicals are used, and whether the chemicals are applied inside or outside. Rain can wash away chemicals applied outdoors, giving them a shorter lifespan than those applied indoors.
