How To Choose a Pest Control Company

There are several things you can weigh when choosing the right pest control 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 licensed at the state level. The EPA maintains minimum competency standards, and the Utah regulatory agencies handle the granting, maintaining, and revoking of licenses.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    Pest control companies can optionally obtain additional certifications like the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is granted once a company has proven its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date training for employees. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its practices and methods.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

Looking at how long a company has been in business can help determine how much experience it has handling pests in your area. You can also look at its website or read customer reviews to figure out whether it has experience eliminating the species of pests you are struggling with. If you cannot find this information online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    Resources you can use to check a company's reputation include the Better Business Bureau (BBB), local review sites, and social media. You can also verify the status of a company's license via the Utah licensing board.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

    Cost is often a deciding factor when choosing a pest control company. Cost may be determined by the size of your house, your location, the type of pest being treated, and other factors.

    Certain pest control companies offer a free on-site estimate to help you determine if it fits into your budget. You can also look at whether it offers a satisfaction guarantee.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to select one that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an environmentally-conscious provider.

  • Safety

    All pesticides that will be used (except those that are classified as minimum-risk) must be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should provide you with information on every pesticide they are using. They should be able to tell you whether these chemicals are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are using options for more environmentally friendly methods of pest control before relying on harsh pesticides.

    One common method for making pest control safer and greener is Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other methods for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and continue with additional pest control as needed.


Common Household Pests in Eagle Mountain

Certain pests are more common than others. In Eagle Mountain, common pests to be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Beetles: There are a wide variety of beetles around the U.S. and in Utah. Many are harmless, but some may feed on and do damage to things like carpeting and the wooden structure of your home.
  • Moths: If you're noticing holes in your linens or clothing, you might have moths in your house. Moths prefer dark places like closets, and they're more common in warmer places.
  • Spiders: You may find spiders in your basement, attic, or other damp, dark places. While most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, you don't want a spider infestation in your house.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs may be found throughout Utah, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mice include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Frequently, mice can be found in attics or in places where food is kept.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Eagle Mountain

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, via a foundation crack or broken screen. Some are attracted to food, either actual food left out or trash sitting out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water outside or puddles inside from things like leaky pipes.

What are some steps I can take to prevent pest infestations?

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent pest infestations. First, don't leave food out. Keep your food stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

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

How frequently do I need to hire someone to do pest control?

Generally it's recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If you have an active infestation, you will need pest control to come out more frequently. Ultimately, your pest professional is the person best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

How long does exterminator spray last?

Most pesticides last approximately 30 to 90 days after application. If there is rain, chemicals applied outside may wash away sooner than those applied inside. Other factors that affect how long pesticide application lasts include the extent of the pest problem, what specific pests are present, the chemicals used, and the application method.
