How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, there are several things that you can consider to make sure that you're choosing the best one for you. Important decision-making factors can 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 competency standards for pesticide applicators, licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Utah must be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Obtaining additional optional certifications can help demonstrate that a pest control company is reputable. One of these is the GreenPro Service Certification. For this certification, a company must show that its methods are more environmentally friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Other various certifications can be earned through trade organizations like QualityPro.

    Pest control companies can also join various professional organizations. Holding membership in organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. Membership in the NPMA gives companies access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to discuss methods and practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

How long a company has been in business can shed some light on its experience dealing with pests in your area. Online reviews or the company's website itself can also inform you whether it has the experience needed to deal with your particular pests. If the answers to your questions aren't available online, contacting the company directly is a great way to learn about its areas of expertise.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can check a company's reputation using local review sites or social media as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check with Utah's licensing board to see the status of a company's license.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is important when hiring someone for pest control. Cost can be affected influenced by your location, the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, and other factors.

    Often, companies will 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 company offers a satisfaction guarantees, meaning that it will continue to treat your pest problem until it is solved.

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

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest management that can be implemented before (or instead of) chemical pesticides. Many follow the practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which goes as follows:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and determine whether 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 solutions for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Assess the outcome and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Draper

Some pests are more prevalent in Draper, and these are the ones you should keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Ants: Ants can be found in just about every part of Utah. Large carpenter ants can be even more of a problem than regular soil ants, as they can cause structural damage to your house.
  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your house (some even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be particularly keen to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household is allergic.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Utah and can lead to serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend getting professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest bedsheets, furniture, wallpaper, and more.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and moist places and are often found in basements or attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Draper

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pests come 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 drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others are searching for water, whether it be standing water on your property or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some things I can do to prevent pest infestations?

One thing you can do to prevent pest infestations is seal off potential entrances into your house. These include things like cracks in your siding or foundation. Next, try to avoid leaving out food for pests. This includes keeping food in sealed containers as well as not leaving trash out. Lastly, reduce standing water in and around your house. Try to reduce places where water collects outside, and fix leaks inside.

How frequently should I hire a pest control professional?

It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once a year. If you have an active infestation, you will need to hire a pest control professional more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional will be the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

How long does exterminator spray last?

The majority of pesticides last approximately 30 to 90 days after application. If there is rain, chemicals applied outside may wash away sooner than those applied inside. Some other things that can affect how long pesticide application lasts include what chemicals are used, the method of applying them, what pests are present, and the extent of your pest problem.
