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 in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. Important decision-making 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?

    Per the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and those that supervise them need to be certified at the state level. The EPA does set minimum standards of competency, but all pesticide applicators in Utah must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can earn the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires a company to show that its practices are environmentally friendly and that its employee training is up to date. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. While not required, these can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

    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 confirm that a company follows industry best practices. The NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by seeing how long it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also tell you whether a company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests invading your home. You can contact the company directly to learn this information if you can't find it online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

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

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

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

Safety and Treatment Methods

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

  • Safety

    Ask your pest control technician if the chemicals they're using are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what sort of precautionary measures they will have in place. Any pesticides that are not minimum-risk chemicals should be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should be able to provide you with information about all chemicals they plan on using.

  • Treatment Methods

    You can ask if your technician will start with more natural and lower-toxicity options before trying harsher chemicals.

    Many companies have started to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

    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. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always along with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Bountiful

You might deal with some pests more often in Bountiful. Some pests to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Moths: If there is a moth infestation in your home, you may notice holes in your clothing or linens. Moths do best in warmer weather and are often found in dark places like closets.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and damp places and are often found in basements or attics.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bug infestations can be very hard to get rid of, so we strongly recommend calling a local exterminator as soon as possible. Bed bugs are found throughout Utah, and can infest not just your bedsheets, but also other furniture and even wallpaper.
  • Mice: Some common signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your house. Mice tend to frequent attics or areas where food is stored.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Bountiful

What causes pest infestations?

Pests enter your home looking for one of three things: food, water, or shelter. Some pests will opportunistically enter your home via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are drawn by food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others are searching for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

How can I prevent pest infestations?

There are certain steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and don't leave trash sitting around.

Second, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outdoors. Lastly, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including siding or foundation cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

When you notice signs of pests in your Bountiful home—things like nests, droppings, signs of damage, or the pests themselves—you should contact your local pest professional. If your home has had recurrent or seasonal infestations, we suggest getting in touch with a local pest control company to set up annual pest management services.

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

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

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