How To Choose a Pest Control Company

The most important step in the pest control process is hiring the right company for you. The qualifications of and treatment methods used by a company are important to consider, as well as its years of experience and reputation in customer reviews. Of course, you also want to think about cost.

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

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

All pesticide applicators, as well as those that supervise them, must be licensed via the appropriate Utah regulatory agencies. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency, while providing, maintaining, and revoking licensure is handled at the state level.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

One certification that pest control companies can earn is the GreenPro Service Certification, which requires that a company show that its practices are eco-friendly and that its employees receive up-to-date training. Trade organizations such as QualityPro offer additional certifications. These are not required, but can help demonstrate that a company is reputable.

Pest control companies can also belong to professional organizations. Companies can belong to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), or state-level organizations. Membership in the NPMA provides companies with access to education, resources, and a network of other pest control companies. While not mandatory, membership in professional organizations helps back up a company's reputability.

Professional Experience and Specialties

A company's years in business can indicate how much experience it has taking care of common pests in Salt Lake City. You can also explore its website or peruse customer reviews to determine whether it has adequate experience with the species of pests you are struggling with. If this information can't be found online, calling the company directly is a great way to learn more.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can look up a company's rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Utah licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Pest control costs can vary based on things like the size of your house, the type of pest being treated, your location, and other factors.

When considering the cost of services, you should confirm whether a company provides free on-site estimates as part of its services. This can inform you whether the company fits into your budget. Also consider a company's guarantees: If the problem is not fixed, or returns, does the company provide additional treatment until the issue is resolved satisfactorily?

Safety and Treatment Methods

Your preferences regarding safety for yourself, your children, your pets, and the environment can influence the provider and the treatment methods you choose.

Safety

Your pest control provider should be able to discuss the safety of the pesticides that will be used in your home. They should be able to explain whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic; if they are not, they should explain what safety precautions will be used to protect you, your family, and your pets. Pesticides that pose greater than a minimum risk must be registered with the EPA.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest technician will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity methods before using harsher chemicals.

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

  1. Identify problem pests and determine whether immediate action is required.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of physical, cultural, biological, and mechanical controls.
  4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always in combination with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Assess the outcome and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Salt Lake City

In Salt Lake City, certain pests are more common than others. This list of pests includes the following:

  • Beetles: In Salt Lake City and around the U.S., there are a number of species of beetles that could cause problems. Many beetles are harmless, but others can do damage by eating wood, carpeting, and more.
  • 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, because they can cause structural damage to your home.
  • Wasps: Wasps are often difficult to get rid of, especially while trying to avoid their stingers. They are commonly found in areas like attics, roof overhangs, garages, and sheds.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs can be found throughout Utah and can cause serious problems if left untreated. Because bed bug infestations can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend having professional extermination as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest wallpaper, furniture, bedsheets, and more.
  • Mice: If you have mice, you might notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. You can often find mice in places where food is stored or in attics.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer damp and dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
