How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When hiring a pest control company, you want to find the right one for you. You may consider a company's qualifications, methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and service prices.

Below, we dive into detail on each factor.

  • Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all pesticide applicators and their supervisors must be certified at the state level. The EPA sets minimum standards of competency, but all Utah pesticide applicators must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One optional certification that could be worth looking for is the GreenPro Service Certification. To earn this certification, a pest control company must both demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and uphold certain technician training standards. Companies can earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further support their work.

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in professional organizations. Membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations is not required, but helps show that a company is reputable. When a pest control company joins the NPMA, it gains access to education, resources, and a network of pest professionals with whom to discuss practices and methods.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can gain some insight into a company's experience level by looking at how many years it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also inform you whether a company has the experience needed to deal with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can always contact the company directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can look at a company's rating and reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), explore social media and local review sites to see what others in your area have to say, or verify its license standing via the Utah 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 cost 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 sort of guarantees it offers. 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

Keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe is an important concern when choosing a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that uses environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

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

  • Treatment Methods

    Companies looking to reduce their use of chemical pesticides often follow practices such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Using IPM involves a series of steps:

    1. Figure out what pests are causing the problem and assess whether immediate action is needed.
    2. Determine the best and safest course of action.
    3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, cultural, biological, and physical controls.
    4. Employ chemical controls only when absolutely necessary, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Evaluate outcomes and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Layton

You might run into some pests more frequently in Layton. Certain ones to keep an eye out for include these:

  • Bees: Your local pest control professional can help get rid of bees around your house (some companies may have resources to safely relocate hives). You might be especially keen to have bees' nests removed if someone in your household has an allergy.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Utah, and they can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations are often hard to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. Bed bugs can infest furniture, wallpaper, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: Telltale signs of mouse activity include chewed wires and droppings around your home. Mice are commonly found in attics or in places where food is kept.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Layton

What causes pest infestations?

Pests enter your home 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 drawn by food, either actual food sitting out or trash left out in the open. Others look for water, either standing water on your property or puddles inside from leaky pipes.

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

There are a number of things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Make sure food is stored in sealed containers, and avoid leaving trash sitting around.

Second, avoid having standing water in or around your house. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate places where standing water collects outside. Finally, seal off possible pest entrances into your home, including foundation and siding cracks.

When should I hire a pest control professional?

You should consider hiring a pest control professional any time you identify signs of pests in your Layton home. This could include droppings, nests, pest damage, or even the pests themselves. If your home has seasonal or recurrent pest infestations, we recommend yearly preventive pest management.

How long does it take for pest control to work?

How soon you see pest control results will depend on the problem and treatment. If your pest technician does something like remove a wasp nest, you can see results almost immediately. For most pest control, however, you may need to wait anywhere from one to two days to up to six weeks for significant results. Some pest problems might require your pest professional to make multiple trips to your home.
