How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The first step is selecting the best pest control professional for the job. Some things you may consider include licensing and qualifications, treatment methods, years of experience, customer reviews, and cost.

Below, we explore the details of each of these factors.

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

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, but licensure is handled at the state level. All pesticide applicators and supervisors in Utah must be licensed through the proper state regulatory agencies.

  • Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

    One 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 demonstrate that its practices are more environmentally friendly and maintain certain technician training standards. Companies can also earn other certifications from trade organizations like QualityPro to further back up their work.

    Pest control companies can also hold membership in professional organizations. A pest control company can join both state-level organizations and national organizations such as the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). By being a member of these optional organizations, a company helps support its reputability and gains access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to compare best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

You can get some insight into a company's level of experience by looking into how long it has been in business. Local reviews and the company's own website can also clue you in as to whether the company has experience dealing with the specific species of pests that are afflicting your home. You can reach out to a representative directly to learn this information if it is not available online.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can verify a company's legitimacy 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 verify the status of a company's license.

  • Cost of Services and Guarantees

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

    You can find out whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget), as well as what type of guarantees it offers. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not resolve 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 selecting a pest control provider. You may also prefer a provider that employs environmentally friendly practices.

  • Safety

    Your pest control provider should be using low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides whenever possible. If they plan to use pesticides that don't fall into one of these categories, your technician should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect your family, your pets, and you. All pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are making the switch to using more natural treatment methods before (or instead of) harsh chemical pesticides. Some employ a program called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The steps of IPM are as follows:

    1. Identify the source of the pest problem and determine whether immediate action is needed.
    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 required, and always in combination with other controls for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Riverton

Not all pests are equally common in Riverton. Some species that you should keep an eye out for are these:

  • Moths: If your house has moths, you might notice holes in your linens or clothing. Moths do best in warmer weather and prefer dark places like closets.
  • Ants: Ants are common in basically all 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.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Utah, and they can lead to major problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be tricky to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, bedsheets, furniture, and more.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you may notice droppings or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer dark and moist places and are commonly found in basements or attics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Riverton

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests come into your home looking for something, generally food, water, or shelter. Pests may be looking to eat food or trash left sitting out. Some might also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in one spot) or inside (from leaky pipes). They might also enter your home looking for shelter. They can get in through weak spots such as foundation cracks or broken screens.

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

There are several things you can do to help prevent pest infestations. First, avoid leaving food out. Keep your food 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 outdoors. Finally, seal off any possible pest entrances into your house, including foundation and siding cracks.

How frequently do I need to hire a pest control professional?

It is typically recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. If your home has 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.

What should I do before my pest control technician arrives at 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 you've noticed 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 food is stored away so that it does not become contaminated with pesticides. You may also wish to remove plants from the area. Additionally, block off areas to be treated to keep children and pets away until it is safe. If the problem needs more intensive pest control, such as fumigation, be sure to follow your pest professional's instructions closely.
