How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When choosing a pest control company, you want to make sure that you find the right one to meet your needs. Important factors can include the company's qualifications, its treatment methods, experience and reviews, and of course the cost of services.

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

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

    While the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established minimum standards of competency for pesticide applicators, licensure is taken care of at the state level. All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) in Utah need to be licensed by all the necessary state regulatory agencies.

  • 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 awarded once a company has shown its methods to be more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also maintains certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further support its methods and practices.

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

Professional Experience and Specialties

In general, a company will list information like its years of experience and specialities on its website. Local reviews can also help you determine if a company has experience dealing with a specific pest. If you're unable to locate the information you need online, you can reach out to the company directly to get the answers to your questions.

  • Reviews and Recommendations

    You can verify a company's legitimacy using social media or local review sites 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

    It's important to think about cost when hiring a pest control company. Cost can be affected influenced by the type of pest being treated, your location, the size of your house, and other factors.

    Companies will often offer free on-site estimates as part 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

Safety is an important consideration when deciding on a pest control provider. You might also prefer a provider who uses more natural, environmentally friendly methods.

  • Safety

    Your pest control provider should use low toxicity or non-toxic pesticides when possible. If any pesticides they intend to use 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. Pesticides that pose more than a minimum risk need to be registered with the EPA.

  • Treatment Methods

    Many companies are now exploring greener and cleaner pest solutions that can be used before (or in place 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 assess whether immediate action is required.
    2. Decide on the safest course of action.
    3. Use a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls to manage the pest problem.
    4. Employ chemical controls only if needed, and always along with other techniques for effective long-term pest management.
    5. Observe the results and implement additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Spanish Fork

Not all pests are equally prevalent around Spanish Fork. Some species that you should be on the lookout for include the following:

  • Bees: Your local pest expert can help get rid of bees around your house (and some companies even are able to safely relocate hives). You might be particularly keen to have bees' nests removed if there is someone in your household who is allergic.
  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs are found throughout Utah, and they can lead to big problems if left untreated. Because infestations of bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, we recommend hiring a professional exterminator as soon as you discover the problem. These pests can infest furniture, bedsheets, wallpaper, and more.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may start noticing droppings or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is kept.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control in Spanish Fork

What are some causes of pest infestations?

Pest infestations occur when pests enter your house looking for something, normally food, water, or shelter. Pests may come looking for food or trash that is sitting out. Some might also be drawn by standing water collecting outside (from rain collecting in a particular area) or inside (from leaky pipes). Pests may also come into your home looking for shelter and get in through weak spots like foundation cracks or broken screens.

How can I 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, try not to have standing water in or around your home. Fix leaks indoors and eliminate standing water sites outside. Lastly, seal off possible pest entrances into your house, including siding or foundation cracks.

How often should I hire a pest control professional?

It is generally recommended that you hire a pest control technician about once annually. 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 who is best-equipped to recommend a treatment schedule for you.

Is pest control safe around my pets?

Usually, it's a good idea to keep pets away from treated areas during and for some time after application. Some pest control chemicals are low or non-toxic, but generally they should not be ingested by animals. Your pest control company will tell you how far to keep pets away from treated areas, and for how long.

Can pests come out after a technician sprays for them?

You may think you're seeing a greater number of pests around your house in the days following pest control treatment. This can be due to living pests being flushed from their hiding places deep in your home, or you may be finding more dead pests. If the amount of pest activity hasn't started to go down in a week or two following treatment, reach out to your Spanish Fork pest control professional to see if more treatment is required.
